    DOC No.37 – Part 1, Second Edition

    The document focusses on sensors that are actually used in the food and beverage industry. All food contact processes are covered: wet processes, but also dry matter and powder. The guideline focusses on the product contact area of the sensor.
    The document helps to define the hygienic requirements for the sensors and give guidance how to use them. It will point out if the aim of the measurement may cause hygienic difficulties. Installation and integration are covered as well. Besides the food contact area, the document covers where applicable as well as applications in the splash area, like housings, holder and wiring devices.
    For each sensor technology, the section describes the range of application, the details of design and construction that have an impact on the hygienic purpose, the correct integration into the process, the consequences in case of a damaged sensor and the impact on the process and the cleanability during the installation. Besides the certified sensor itself, it is as important to ensure the hygienic integration.
