ATEX & IEC-approved stainless steel enclosures
EX stainless steel enclosures deliver outstanding protection where increased oil,
gas, and petrochemical safety requirements are present.
These ATEX and IEC-rated designs function over - 22° to +176°F./-30° to +80°C.
to Zones 1 and 2 or 21 and 22 to 94/9/EC standards. Their foamed-in-place silicone gaskets deliver protection in potentially explosive atmospheres.
A new lineup of enclosures includes six versions with screw-fastened covers plus
nine types with hinged doors. All offer IP66 to IEC 60 529 protection ratings along
with a zinc-plated carbon steel mounting panel. This provides instant grounding
for installed equipment. Enclosure accessories include wall mounting brackets,
ground straps, and rails. Complete EX SS enclosures data are yours free.

Intrinsically safe remote methane leak detector
RMLD-IS intrinsically safe remote methane leak detector is designed to “impact
detection of fugitive greenhouse gas emissions.”
As an eye-safe laser-based natural gas (methane) detector, it quickly and ef-
ficiently detects leaks up to 100 ft away. This enables remote detection of under-
ground piping, compressor stations, offshore platforms, gas processing plants, gas
gathering, drilling sites, as well as above-ground. When the infrared laser beam is
transmitted from the launch port, some of the laser light is reflected back and con-
verted to an electrical signal. This carries data to deduce methane concentration.

Large pipe, duct-applicable air/gas flow meters
Dual-element averaging makes ST102A Air/Gas Thermal Mass Flow Meters repeatable and accurate for larger 12-in./305-mm-diameter pipes and ducts. Transmitter
electronics average input from two independent flow elements into a single output.
Each element can be independently configured for insertion length and process
connection for installation flexibility. Complete ST102A specifics are yours free.
