2016 Price Adjustment
Posted on 2015-12-01 01:35:00 by Anderson
2015 is rapidly coming to a close. The Anderson-Negele team is very grateful for our channel partners’ professionalism and efforts throughout 2015, resulting in one of our biggest installed-base sales years ever! The project environment has been a difficult one, but this strength in the base business has allowed Anderson-Negele to invest in service expansion and new product development that will further benefit our partnership in the future.
In 2016, you will see Anderson increasing the sophistication of its online tools for training and application notes that continue to help us win with process engineers – whether they are seasoned professionals or new grads cutting their teeth. Anderson will serve its partners better by meeting these process instrumentation users where they are. In addition, you will see the launch of a new temperature line as well as pressure and level products with a greatly improved feature set.
Anderson’s annual list price adjustments will take effect January 1, 2016. This year we have made the smallest price increase on our core products since the 2009 recession. You will notice some high single digit price increases on accessories and electronics. These increases are a result of these parts being very low volume, resulting in higher cost. We are erring on increasing these prices rather than removing them from the portfolio. The resulting weighted volume average of price across the entire portfolio is less than 3%, and depending on what you purchase, the resulting increase will be less than that. You can download or view the new pricing by clicking on the box below.

Thank you for finishing strong with us in 2015. We look forward to a strong 2016! From the whole Anderson-Negele team, we wish you, your teams and your families Happy Holidays!
Anderson-Negele to be part of new public corporation when Danaher splits in 2016
Posted on 2015-05-18 09:38:00 by Anderson
Last week, Danaher announced that by the end of 2016 it will split into two, publicly traded companies. One company will maintain the Danaher name, and the other – to be named in the coming months – will be a $6BN industrial technologies company. The new company will include Anderson-Negele, as a part of the Sensors and Automation businesses.
As part of this new public company, Anderson-Negele’s business model, strategy, and the subsequent way we serve our customers will be unchanged. The fact that we will be more closely aligned with our sister sensor and automation businesses should accelerate investment and technology sharing across those businesses. From a team perspective, the current Anderson-Negele team remains intact, and for those of you who follow the stock market, Jim Lico – a greater than 20 year Danaher veteran – will be CEO of the new company. Jim has a well-deserved reputation of being a strong business leader who has piloted many DHR businesses successfully.
The only news that remains is the name of the new public entity, which we will publish once it isnamed. Otherwise, Anderson-Negele will continue to run according to your input and the principle that we must be continuously improving to remain competitive.
Please contact myself or Scott LeBrun if you have any questions regarding the news. Thank you.

Coming soon â€“ Modular display interface & MPF Remote kit.
Anderson is pleased to announce the latest upgrades to the EL & EM sanitary pressure gauge lines.
Broader temperature range with greater accuracy:
EL & EM gauges are now rated for process temperatures from -20F to 300F. Even better, along with this broader temperature range the imparted temperature effect has also improved to just 0.06psi per 10F. Additionally an option to accommodate process temperatures to 330F that includes a steam stabilized diaphragm, will meet the highest process temperatures that a sanitary gauge would typically be subject to.
This means in our customerâ€™s facilities Anderson gauges will be more accurate than ever in the most extreme temperature applications likely to be encountered.
Clean for Oxygen service
EL & EM sanitary gauges may now be specified to be cleaned for oxygen service directly from Anderson. Anderson will prepare the product contact surfaces to meet the Compressed Gas Association spec CGA G-4.1. This saves significant time and cost over having this contracted for on-site and will simplify validation and commissioning processes.
EL and EM Gauges now Available for Outside Service
Posted on 2012-06-05 12:05:00 by Anderson
Have you ever seen a sanitary gauge outside? While certainly most of the applications are well within the dairy or pharmaceutical suite there remain a finite number of sanitary gauges that live their lives out in the elements. While an Anderson sanitary gauge is no stranger to hot, cold and very wet conditions, an outside gauge also has to contend with the sun and the associated UV radiation.
UV from the sun can potentially damage all sorts of instrumentation. On a gauge the lens can cloud and the dial plate printing can fade. For a typical industrial gauge utilizing a glass lens, this is less a problem as glass absorbs UV rays and remains unaffected. For a sanitary gauge which cannot use glass due to prohibitions of glass in dairy food or pharma facilities, outside placement has been challenging and typically resulted in reduced life.
Anderson is now offering an option that addresses this issue on both the EL and EM gauges. Our standard polysulphone lens is quite durable and exceptional for higher temperatures applications such as autoclave use, but is not the best for use in direct sunlight. For outdoor applications a newly available UV stabilized polycarbonate is the best choice. This offering provides the durability of our standard lens yet is UV stabilized to remain clear and additionally attenuates the UV rays extending the life of the dial plate printing. As polycarbonate is rated to lower temperatures that polysulphone we recommend for indoor use and especially for gauges that will be autoclaved, to stay with the standard polysulphone offering.
The Anderson sanitary gauge offering offers a wide variety of options and features to accommodate most sanitary applications. We invite you to review the gauges on the product page. Should you have any questions regarding suitability for a specific application, please do not hesitate to contact the Anderson customer service and technical service teams.

Recessed diaphragm now available on EL and EM gauges
Posted on 2012-03-05 09:56:00 by Anderson
In 2011 the Anderson Product Development team began a design review of the EL & EM gauges. This project was fueled by a VOC (Voice Of the Customer) deep dive along with a critical look at our competitors offerings. The fruits of this R&D project are pretty exciting and will be released throughout 2012.
The first release of this project is the availability of a recessed diaphragm for 1-1/2â€ and 2â€ Triclamp fittings on both the EL and EM gauges. This new fitting will help extend gauge life by reducing the likelihood of diaphragm damage for users that handle gauges frequently. Users who rely on COP (Clean Out of Place) processes or who disassemble and store system components frequently will benefit from the lowered incidence of diaphragm handling damage thus reducing cost of ownership.
Anderson maintains a leadership role in the sanitary industries and regards our part in ensuring food and pharmaceutical safety standards quite seriously. Historically Anderson resisted offering recessed diaphragm fittings based on sanitary concerns â€“ â€œjust how much CIP solution is acceptable in your milk?â€ was a common discussion point when selling against competitors that utilized recessed diaphragms. The principle that a flush diaphragm surface is more cleanable and promotes reduced hold back volume is well understood but realistically may be weighed against the application requirements and the specific sensor connection point. When put in that context, offering a recessed diaphragm on a pressure gauge that will likely be attached to an instrument Tee, probably does not degrade the overall cleanability significantly.
The ratio of depth verses the diameter of a dead leg significantly impacts the ability to adequately clean during CIP. It is for this reason that shorter instrument Tees verses standard tees are preferred for sensor take off points. With this in mind, the newly available recessed diaphragms are deep enough to avoid most common handling damage, but not so deep as to negatively impact cleanability. Some of our market competitorâ€™s fittings are recessed so deeply we have to question their cleanability.
Our recommendation is for most end-users to remain with the flush Triclamp to ensure the best possible CIP cleaning. For those end-users that clean out of place or must handle gauges frequently, the recessed diaphragm will still provide the highest sanitary standards while reducing the incidence of handling damage. Regardless of the fitting chosen Anderson sanitary gauges are the industries top sanitary gauge available. Never a â€œmodifiedâ€ industrial design, both the EL for dairy and food, and the EM for the biotech and pharmaceutical industries are the standard bearers for our markets.
The next generation in sanitary pressure transmitters
Posted on 2011-09-14 02:32:00 by Anderson
Most sanitary pressure transmitters available today offer a mix of design compromises based on the industrial transmitters from which they are derived. Diaphragm seals negatively impact accuracy and temperature effect. Enclosures designed for industrial applications collect dirt and grime while providing inadequate environmental protection. Critical spares are costly to inventory due to the variety of unique configurations required in modern dairy and beverage facilities. The few manufactures that actually offer specific sanitary models charge exorbitantly for the stainless steel enclosures and highly polished surfaces that end up being thrown away when a diaphragm is damaged or a lightning strike fries the electronics.
Could there be a better way?
What if critical spares meant keeping a handful of components on the shelf verses complete full price transmitters?
What if we eliminated the waste involved in replacements â€“ Why are we throwing out stainless steel???
What if you invested once in a durable polished stainless enclosure?
What if one transmitter could be field configured to most pressure applications in the facility?
What if the transmitter visually told you it was having a problem before a batch of product has to be scrapped because the pressure transmitter went south?
Regardless of the warranty, what if the transmitter never EVER got water inside it? Period. Who wants to deal with a warranty return after all?
As we take our sales sample around and present the NEW product to end users they are saying it's a great product and they certainly like the lower cost of ownership.

Improved lead-time availability on LN Potentiometric Level Transmitters
Posted on 2011-08-12 11:07:00 by Anderson
By now you may have seen the Lead time change announcement for the LN
To add some detail to this, Anderson continues to ramp sales of the LN due to itâ€™s great performance vs a variety of inferior technologies. The â€œStandardâ€ 20â€ â€“ 80â€ single probe model fits over 85% of the known applications, thatâ€™s why we have reduced the lead time on those configurations. In addition to the 5 day lead time, we will also have the capability to provide emergency expedites to a similar level as an SL â€“ specifically, weâ€™ll do better than 5 days for a 10% expedite charge.
Questions pop up from time to time about the configuration we consider â€œstandardâ€. Iâ€™ll take a moment here to touch on these:
LN options include dual and single probe versions. Single probe versions make up 90%+ of sales. A dual probe LN is needed if the vessel is non conductive (not stainless) or depending on the application requirement for linearity if the vessel is horizontal.
Top down with isolation
Top down simply mean the LN is mounted at the top of the vessel. We do have a bottom up option but applications requiring this are uncommon. The â€œisolationâ€ is asked about frequently. This is a black Teflon coating at the top of the probe. The purpose for this is to keep conductive salts that may be deposited via CIP evaporating from forming a bridge across the tri-clamp to the probe. Should that occur the probeâ€™s output becomes unstable. As most of the applications we sell the LN into utilize CIP cleaning we have standardized on this configuration to avoid problems
The standard lengths range from 20 inches to 80 inches. There are shorter lengths available but these use smaller diameter tubing. As these are less common, we are only making the 20+ here. Longer than 80 inches is possible but also uncommon. As there will use the same tubing we stock here we will be able to make them on a PM basis.
Fractional lengths are also an occasional request. The recommendation is that the probe should be at least Â½â€ above the bottom of the vessel. Obviously any volume below the probe will not be measured so end-users will want this to be measured fairly closely. That said, building these to the nearest Â¼ inch is about the limit to practicality. A new note on the literature and on the price page will offer guidance on this.
