The conductivity of a liquid can be measured using the conductive or toroidal measuring principles. This video shows what it is about and how these measuring principles work.

Toroidal conductivity measuring system for hygienic applications

Smartec CLD18 is the cost-effective solution for all applications in beverage plants where small tubes are used and where the toroidal measurement is used as a switch function. The combination of a transmitter and a sensor is interference-free, easy-to-use and features a hygienic design that protects your products and processes from contamination. Smartec CLD18 ensures the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of your plant thanks to fast and reliable CIP and phase separation measurements.
