ITM-51 | Flexible & advanced Analytical Turbidity Meter
Anderson-Negele’s ITM-51 replaces the ITM-3, and it has a more flexible and advanced Analytical Turbidity Meter.
One can use this turbidity meter in a wider range of applications and expect a better performance overall. The ITM-51 brings value by reducing water usage, use of chemicals and energy, and optimising product losses.
What are the top Applications?
- Phase separation of products such as whey, cream and milk
- Monitoring separator which has plant protection at the inlet and quality assurance at the outlet
- CIP return flow which monitors the pre-rinse water for product remnants
- Checking of yeast harvest for the brewery industry
- Quality control at all levels
- Monitoring of filters and seals for leakage
What are the advancements from the ITM-3?
- Expanded measurement range
- Increased temperature and pressure ranges
- Further comprehensive options for configuration and process integration on Anderson-Negele’s modular sensor platform
- The sensor can be checked by users directly on location with the help of an external test kit
- More flexible with a modular structure and standardized components and many process connections
- Easy to clean in automated CP processes due to its front-flush, hygienic design
- Checked thoroughly through EHEDG tests with regards to its hygienic design
- Increased ROI results
What are the accessories and additional options?
- A pre-assembled cable for M12 plug-in connector
- Remote version with cable length up to 30m
- Electrical connection with M12 plug-in connector
- Display module Simple User Interface (SUI) and Large User Interface (LUI)
What is the Measuring Principal of the Relative Turbidity Meter?
An infrared diode infrared light is irradiated into the media. Particles in the media are reflected by the irradiated light, which in turn is detected by the receiver diode (the backscatter principle).
From the received signal, the electronics will calculate the relative turbidity of the media. The relative turbidity is based on Anderson-Negele’s calibration standard and is displayed in “%TU”.
