Submersible pressure transducer aims at hazardous areas

12 November 2013

The AST4530 submersible pressure transducer has been certified by CSA International to Class I Div 1, Groups C and D for use in intrinsically safe areas with an approved barrier.

AST plans to extend the success the transducer has already reached in the industrial market with this product into hazardous area markets such as oil field liquid level monitoring, salt water holding tanks, chemical injection system monitoring, and production facilities requiring intrinsic safety.

Without deadband, reflectivity, and foaming issues, submersible sensor technology with PVDF body and cable, and PTFE non-stick diaphragm, this product is an excellent new technology in the marketplace.

Combined with ABS certification, the AST4530 submersible pressure transducer will also be installed in shipping applications where chemicals are being transported. Wastewater treatment facilities could also benefit from the additional approval due to installation requirements in certain atmospheres.
