Especially for the pharmaceuticals sector LABOM Mess- und Regeltechnik GmbH developed a mechanical pressure gauge that is autoclavable and conforms to the highest standards of hygiene.

As vessels and equipment for producing pharmaceuticals routinely require cleaning by a CIP/SIP process, it is only possible to use measuring devices that are capable of withstanding high temperatures and strong chemicals. When an autoclave is employed the gauges face further challenges, typically with temperatures up to 140 °C.

Therefore LABOM delivers a mechanical pressure gauge with a stainless steel casing and a unique hygienic design that complies with EHEDG recommendations. Available in nominal sizes 63 and 100. All outer surfaces of the casing are very low in roughness and this ensures they are especially easy to clean. The wetted parts are constructed as standard in accordance with EHEDG and ASME BPE SF3. However, all surfaces of the measuring device – which includes the casing as well as product contact surfaces – can also be enhanced by electropolishing if required, which additionally improves the surface quality and imparts even better hygienic attributes.

The BH8 pressure gauge has been engineered to meet the highest hygiene requirements in the food, pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors. It can be supplied with a wide variety of hygienic process connections. Its hygienic case design conforms to EHEDG recommendations, so ensuring optimum cleaning capability, e.g. in autoclaves. Removing case parts (e.g. the vent valve) is not necessary.
