With equipment and processes already set up around our customer’s application, this new customer required a fairly straight forward sensor to work within their existing set-up. The only difficulty they had was that the unit had to have an IP68 rated enclosure due to the environmental and atmospheric conditions surrounding their container.
A simple, horizontally mounted Stainless Steel sensor with a solid enclosure is harder to find than they originally planned so they came to us for a bespoke solution.
When the customer came to us with their problem, it became evident that the best option would be to customise a sensor we currently manufacture, our 80 Series Liquid Level Sensor. This would prove the easiest, quickest and most cost effective solution for our customer who signed off on the drawing immediately!
The 80 Series is a small sensor designed for high temperature/high pressure operation and sensing chemically aggressive liquids. The design provides a highly cost effective solution where high reliability in a demanding environment is called for.
Our metal works departments welded a ½” NPT to a standard 80 Series body, allowing us to fit the required Stainless Steel enclosure.
Features of this sensor include:
- IP68 rated Stainless Steel enclosure
- Switch rating: 240V, 1Amp, 50Watts maximum
- 24Bar pressure maximum
- 316L Stainless Steel
The sensor was manufactured and tested within 3 days and the customer was able to install this unit ahead of schedule!
