Following are the top features required of a quality vibration sensor in the Food and Beverage industry, along with the reasons why:
  • Low frequency response ≤ 1,0 Hz: For low rotational speed of rolls
  • Small physical size: Small bearing and access restrictions
  • Corrosion precautions: Cleaning fluid and chemical attack
  • Integral cable or IP 68 connector/cable: Frequent hose-down environment
Good - General purpose monitoring: Better - Installation robustness: Best - Frequency and precision:
