Tokyo, Japan - May 18, 2017
Yokogawa Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6841) announces that it has extended its lineup of DPharp EJA® series differential pressure/pressure transmitters with the development and release for sale on this date 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 our 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.
EJAC60E hygienic adapter system
On food and pharmaceutical production lines, pressure transmitters are often used that rely on a pressure detector with a silicone oil-filled diaphragm to transfer pressure to a sensing component. However, there is a risk that certain applications such as steam cleaning and high-pressure water cleaning could damage the diaphragm and result in the process fluid becoming contaminated with the silicone oil. Fluidless pressure detectors are a solution to this problem.
Yokogawa's DPharp differential pressure/pressure transmitters use conventional silicone oil-filled diaphragms to measure pressure. To meet the need for a fluidless pressure transmitter, the company has incorporated a fluidless pressure sensor in the EJA560E hygienic gauge pressure transmitter.
Food, pharmaceutical, and other manufacturing industries
Measurement of fluid, gas, and steam pressure, and liquid level in tanks and pipes
In 1991, Yokogawa launched its DPharp EJ series. These transmitters were the first ever to use a micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) based single crystal silicon resonant sensor. In 1994, Yokogawa released its DPharp EJA series of transmitters with improved performance and superb stability, and in 2004 followed up with the introduction of a high-end series, DPharp EJX®. To date, Yokogawa has delivered a total of 7 million highly reliable DPharp series pressure transmitters to customers all over the world.

Differential Pressure (DP) is defined as the difference between two pressures. Differential Pressure Transmitters use a reference point called the low-side pressure and compare it to the high-side pressure. Ports in the instrument are marked high-side and low-side.
Yokogawa introduces new release of the Fluidless series – EJAC60E Hygienic Adapter System (Fluidless Type).
This system composes of replaceable adapters(16 adapters in total) with hygienic function of pressure detection.
Suitable for various kind of process including hygienic connection.
Gauge Pressure transmitters compare a pressure relative to atmospheric measure.
Hygienic Pressure Transmitters are designed to fulfil the requirements of hygienic and pharmaceutical application.
