360 is available in either a powder
coated cast aluminium enclosure or a food grade electroless
nickel or stainless steel enclosure, the MCT 360-FG. The standard
enclosure is IP65 rated, and as such, is dust and splashproof,
please note that the instruments cannot be pressure washed.
330SF is an alternative gauging
solution in the event a gauge is likely to be spray washed
or located in an environment where the temperature can rise
to, and remain at 60-65°C.
Sampler or a Sample probe is available for measurement
within a vertical chute or on a spray dryer, and a sight
window can be useful if the product is conveyed in enclosed
ducts. Air purge diffusers will keep the gauge window dust
and oil free, and a vortex
cooler will ensure reliable continuous operation in hot
locations( ambient temperature > 50°C) such as the
exit of a fryer or oven.
Gauge outputs, Operator interface
360 is available with or without a local operator interface
or display, as all the processing is carried out within the
sensor head and the measurement is output via 4-20mA, 0-10V,
RS232, RS485 or any bus. Installation time and effort is minimised
by dispensing with a local OI, but should samples be collected
for cross checks an OI is useful… in this event, one
could be simply plugged into the gauge at the sampling location.
Gauges are delivered pre-calibrated wherever possible using
customer samples or existing samples at our Production or
UK site. Measurements are typically calibrated as a % of wet
weight but the MCT
360 can be configured to display the actual measurement
as % wet weight or % dry weight. In addition to moisture PSC
offers oil /fat, protein, caffeine and colour, accuracy of
all measurements is application specific. For further information
on your application, please contact PSC.
