Dew Point Transmitter Certified by ATEX and FM

Dew Point Transmitter Certified by ATEX and FM

06 February 2008

Michell Instruments are delighted to announce they have received confirmation of the accreditation by FM Approvals for the intrinsically safe version of their Easidew Transmitter. In addition to its ATEX certification, this allows the Easidew TX I.S. to be used in hazardous area applications within the USA.

The Easidew TX I.S. is certified by FM Approvals for use in hazardous areas to IS/I/1/ABCD/T4 when used with a galvanic isolator for signal power supply connections. The new Transmitter can be safely used in virtually all industrial gas measurement applications. The certification lists five different galvanic isolators. This allows the customer to choose the most suitable isolator to provide the correct hazardous / safe area interconnection.

The Easidew TX I.S. offers the customer more new and improved features. It can now be connected in a 2-Wire loop powered or 3-Wire configuration. The Transmitter also features an HDPE filter, designed to show contamination for service ease which is <10um porosity and impermeable to liquids.

The key to the transmitter’s performance is its sensor technology. Michell Instruments’ Advanced Ceramic Moisture Sensor is coupled with advanced microprocessor based measurement circuitry to produce a fully calibrated and interchangeable sensor transmitter. All calibration data is stored within the transmitter’s memory and so calibration exchange or service can be affected in seconds, even by untrained personnel. The Easidew TX I.S. is simply disconnected, removed from its sampling block and replaced by a new, fully calibrated unit.

Aside from all of the new features, the Easidew TX I.S. offers, it is economical to purchase, install and simple to operate. For our industrial customers, Michell will also organise a sensor calibration exchange programme so that the process is never out of operation.

The Easidew TX I.S. is the ideal solution for measurement of dew point or trace moisture. Specific applications can also be found within the petrochemical and process industry, such as, CNG (compressed natural gas), industrial gas manufacture and supply and many more.
