Dispatched Down Under!
We recently received an enquiry for our horizontally mounted ATEX/ IECEx liquid level sensor, the HFS-Ex. These sensors are set to be used in a water/ glycol mixture, with Hydrogen gas potentially present, meaning hazardous area equipment is required. They require a simple reed switch to activate an alarm when the water/ glycol mixture reaches the high and low levels within the container to ensure the pumps do not run dry – a major safety issue within a hazardous environment!
As our customer has a limited amount of space to install this in, we have used a 1.5” NPT process connection, rather than our standard flange or 2” threads. Our wide ranging ATEX/ IECEx Ex d certification allows us to adjust stem lengths, mounting threads and electrical specifications, all to fit in with the customers’ requirements.
Features of this custom sensor include:
- ATEX/ IECEx certified
- T5 temperature class
- Manufactured from 316L Stainless Steel
- Operating Pressure of 10 Bar
- 240Vac switch rating
- Custom 1.5” Hex Plug
These custom units have been manufactured within 2 weeks of receiving the order and has been shipped to Australia this week!
