New Additions to Explosion-Proof Sensor Line
FM and CSA have recently approved a new style of RTD and thermocouple assemblies for use in Division 1 hazardous areas. The approval includes Class I, Groups B, C, and D; Class II, Groups E, F, and G; and Class III.
Designed expressly for accurate sensing in thermowells, the assemblies feature all stainless steel spring-loaded holders for positive probe contact in thermowells. Minco's unique holder design permits free movement of the probe while meeting flame path requirements, so that it can be safely used with any thermowell or none at all.
The assemblies come with a choice of three RTD and thermocouple probe styles: copper-tip for best response, all stainless fast response styles, or mineral insulated probes for best vibration resistance. Minco offers a full selection of accessory thermowells in a variety of materials.
Also approved are trasmitter assemblies using Temptran 4 to 20 mA transmitters.
