Dissolved Oxygen Sensor Scores Accuracy Benchmark

By  | February 16, 2018 | Filed under: Float Switch, Level Sensors, Wireless Sensors

Endress+Hauser’s Memosens COS81D hygienic optical sensor is designed to measure dissolved oxygen in harsh apps like fermenters and bioreactors used in the food, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, as well in drinking water and boiler feedwater applications. It can be used in all measuring points from lab fermenters to production processes.

 

In terms of accuracy, the COS81D measures dissolved oxygen, gaseous oxygen and temperature with accuracy up to ±0.2%. It works in process temperatures from 15 to 280 °F and pressures from 0 to190 psi. The sensor also provides temperature and partial pressure, as well as raw measured values. The sensor connects to a transmitter via a cable that transmits an optical digital signal.

SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE

Join thousands of engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, including AI, Autonomous Vehicles, IoT, and Medical, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.

 

The sensor withstands CIP and SIP procedures, and resists halogen-containing solvents, ketones and toluene. The sensor is a compact stainless steel 12mm design with lengths currently up to 220 mm. The sensor has a low sampling volume, making it well suited for residual oxygen measurement in water treatment and boiler feedwater.

 

The stainless steel sensor meets EHEDG (type EL class I) and ASME BPE (including USP class VI and FDA conformity) hygienic requirements to avoid product contamination, and meets the requirements of GMP and GLP. It also has a Certificate of Compliance for biological reactivity tests as per USP (United States Pharmacopeia) part 87 and part 88 class VI, with batch traceability of materials in contact with product.

 

Two spot cap versions are available with the sensor: a C-shaped cap and a U-shaped cap. The first is particularly well suited to measurements in liquids, specifically in fermenters and bioreactors. The distinctive design of the U-shaped cap protects the spot from abrasion that can occur, for example, in gas measurements. The caps, specially designed for hygienic applications, reduce blockages and the adherence of air bubbles. Thanks to these caps, the sensor delivers extremely stable measured values across the entire measuring range. This stability is maintained even after dozens of CIP and SIP cycles.

 

The sensor can be replaced within seconds. The user calibrates the sensor in the lab, and then inserts it into the sensor holder assembly. It does not require any polarization time and is immediately ready to measure. The sensor has integrated electronics that store calibration data and other information, such as total hours of operation and operating hours under extreme measuring conditions. Once the sensor has been connected, the sensor data is transferred automatically to the transmitter and used to calculate the current measured value. Because calibration data is stored in the sensor, the sensor can be calibrated and adjusted independent of the measuring point.

 

Measured and calibration values in the sensor are sent to the transmitter using a non-contact connection that is free from potential interference. Memosens technology in the transmitter generates an automatic error message if the sensor fails, or if the connection between sensor and transmitter is interrupted.

 

The optical signals are continuously monitored and analyzed. The transmitter detects implausibly high or low measured values, irregular values due to incorrect measured values, and aging of the sensor cap. When errors are detected, the transmitter displays a warning and generates an error message.
