Photoelectric sensors for hygenic, washdown environments
The QM26 and QMH26 photoelectric sensors by Banner Engineering are designed for chemically cleaned envrionments and are built to be as germ-free as possible for the pharmaceutical industry as well as food and beverages.
Banner 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.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
