New intrinsically safe vibration sensor operates up to 250°C.
17 March 2010
Hansford Sensors Ltd. have launched the new HS-105I range of ATEX and IEC Ex certified, intrinsically safe vibration sensors which are capable of operating in tough environments where temperatures can rise to 250°C.
The new sensors has been developed for use in areas of very high temperatures on gas turbines which are used to generate electrical power on off-shore oil and gas platforms. It will enable maintenance engineers to monitor vibration levels of large pumps, diesel engines, fans, compressors, motors, drilling rigs and all types of rotating machinery, which are in a potentially explosive working environment.
The new HS-105I sensors are constructed in stainless steel and have the ability to withstand tough operating conditions, offering reliability, optimum performance and long service. They are supplied with a separate charge amplifier module positioned within the braided cable run allowing this to be positioned outside the high temperature area and are available with a wide choice of cable lengths and mounting options
Visitors to the company's website at www.hansfordsensors.com can view the complete sensor range including the existing AC and 4-20mA versions together with the various certificates awarded for the intrinsically safe operation.
