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
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
