Courtesy: Banner EngineeringBanner Engineering's QM26 and QMH26 photoelectric sensors, designed specifically for food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries. The sensors were influenced by the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) and food safety initiatives among private businesses.

The QM26 is housed in a non-toxic 316L stainless steel housing, and can survive high pressure washdowns and temperature cycling, ranging from -30 C to 60 C. The sensor is Ecolab certified for inexhaustible sensor life in chemically cleaned environments and is intended for splash zone areas. The QM26 also features side-mounting for quick set-up and installation.

The QMH26 is designed with minimal grooves and crevices, leaving no room for bacteria to hide and multiply. It is self-draining for clean-in-place (CIP) applications. The sensor’s hygienic mounting shape reduces contamination risk, making it a suitable sensor to place in contact zones.
