Company and Product News

Yokogawa Electric Corporation announced that it has extended its lineup of DPharp EJA series differential pressure/pressure transmitters with the development and release for sale of the EJAC60E hygienic adapter system. The EJAC60E hygienic adapter system consists of the EJA560E hygienic gauge pressure transmitter and adapters of different sizes and connection types.

The EJA560E hygienic gauge pressure transmitter does not use silicone oil or any other type of fluid as a sealant, eliminating the risk of contamination to the process fluid. As such, it is well suited to the specific requirements of customers in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Yokogawa will leverage this feature to expand sales to the food and pharmaceutical industries in Japan, Asia, and other markets.

Product features include as follows:

  1. High functionality

Yokogawa has incorporated a fluidless pressure sensor in the EJA560E hygienic gauge pressure transmitter. This sensor is a Yokogawa product with a proven track record in Japan. The EJA560E transmitter thus combines the benefits of fluidless pressure detection with features, such as an LCD display, range setting, and versatile communications that come standard with all DPharp EJA series instruments.

  1. Ease of installation on production lines

Food and pharmaceutical production lines have pipes of all sizes and necessitate a variety of connections. To accommodate these needs and thereby facilitate the construction of such facilities, the EJAC60E hygienic adapter system features a total of 16 adapters of different sizes and connection types.

  1. Removable diaphragm / sanitary certification

The diaphragm in the transmitter's pressure detector can be easily removed for cleaning or replacement. For the EJAC60E, Yokogawa expects to receive certification to the 3-A sanitary standard within this year.
