LiquiSonic Controller Now For Potentially Explosive Atmospheres

The operation of facilities in potentially explosive atmospheres and under extreme temperatures is common in certain industries, particularly in the chemical and petrochemical production.

The operation of facilities in potentially explosive atmospheres and under extreme temperatures is common in certain industries, particularly in the chemical and petrochemical production. In order to guarantee a high level of safety for man and environment, the LiquiSonic controller is being integrated in an explosion-proof field housing. Sophisticated development and construction turned into a comprehensive protection system that provides a maximum of reliability and process safety. Together with the LiquiSonic sensors the controller is applied for monitoring the concentration and density in process liquids.

The enclosure includes an Ex d housing for the controller and an Ex e housing for the connection area. Both meet the requirements according to ATEX, IECEx, and UL guidelines as well as other country-specific standards. The explosion protection complies to the classification of II 2 G Ex de IIB + H2 T6, whereas the protection degree of the field housing is characterized by IP66 / NEMA 4X.

As a user-friendly complete solution the LiquiSonic controller is being installed in the Ex field housing by SensoTech and will be delivered ready for immediate use to the customer. Navigation of the controller is made via serial interface or network connection. The measuring values can be watched through the viewing window of the housing. Furthermore they can be displayed on the computer. For ambient temperatures above 40 °C, the field housing is combined with an additional housing that integrates a Vortex-cooler. This option is particularly relevant for applications in petrochemical industries.

For over 20 years SensoTech has been focused on the development, manufacturing and sales of inline analysis systems for process liquids.The knowledge and the experiences of the highly motivated and committed SensoTech staff are the result of many different applications supported by well-known customers from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, food technology, semiconductor technology, automobile and steel industry as well as many other industries. In addition, these experiences also open up unimagined solution possibilities for new measuring challenges.
