Submersible pressure transmitters for Class I, Div. 1
Submersible pressure transmitters are optimized for detecting the level of water or other media with similar density in challenging industrial environments including wastewater and irrigation systems and tanks containing liquids such as gas and diesel.
The PT4500 and PT4510 submersible pressure transmitters are
optimized for detecting the level of water or other media with similar density
in challenging industrial environments including wastewater and irrigation
systems and tanks containing liquids such as gas and diesel. The PT4510
submersible pressure transmitter was designed for low-level applications of up
to 400 inches; the PT4500 is available in ranges up to 100 psig.
To deliver accurate level detection, a transmitter is placed
at the bottom of the tank holding the liquid, and the transmitter then converts
the pressure reading to an analog 4-20 mA output signal. The electrical
connection to the transmitter is routed through the top of the tank and
contains power and signal wires. It additionally includes a breathing tube that
is used as a reference port to determine the atmospheric pressure outside of
These IP68-rated, stainless steel pressure transmitters may
be used in industrial applications, as well as hazardous classified areas. The
transmitters carry UL/cUL 913 approval for use in Class I, Division 1, Groups C
and D locations when installed with an approved barrier.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
