Pyromation Hazardous Location Spring-Loaded RTD

Description
Explosion-Proof, Spring-Loaded RTDs are made for use in U.S. and Canadian hazardous areas. They are designed to extinguish flames inside the device, eliminating the potential for ignition of flammable mixtures in the surrounding atmosphere. FM and CSA approved assemblies, dependent on connection head type, meet XP Class I Division I & II; Groups B, C, D; DIP Class II Division I; Groups E, F, G; Class III; Type 4/4X. Pyromation provides sensors for installation into your existing thermowell or provides the required thermowell as part of the assembly. Refer to the Thermowell Section of this catalog for product selection. The assemblies feature 316 stainless steel sheaths. They are available with aluminum or stainless steel explosion-proof connection heads. Note: The "S" dimension will measure 1/4" longer than specified when the spring is in the relaxed position. The "S" dimension is calculated when the sensor is compressed or in the installed position. This design allows 1/4" spring compression to ensure positive contact with the bottom of the thermowell. Resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), also known as resistance thermometers, accurately sense process temperatures with an excellent degree of repeatability and interchangeability of elements. The RTD is composed of certain metallic elements whose change in resistance is a function of temperature. In operation, a small excitation current is passed across the element, and the voltage, which is proportional to resistance, is then measured and converted to units of temperature calibration. The RTD measurement element is manufactured by winding a wire (wire wound elements) or plating a film (thin film elements) on a ceramic or glass core and sealing the element within a ceramic or glass capsule. Since most resistance temperature detectors and resistance thermometers have a low initial resistance, often 100 ohms, and have a small change in resistance per unit of temperature range, the resistance of the lead wire is often compensated for with a three or four wire bridge configuration built into the measuring devices. By selecting the proper elements and protective sheathing, RTDs can operate in a temperature range of (-200 to 650) °C [-328 to 1202] °F. Pyromation manufactures resistance temperature detectors and resistance thermometers for many industry applications. From single- or dual-element RTDs, PT100s-PT1000s, to Sanitary CIP configurations, we have the right RTD type for your job. If what you need is not available from our catalog, our product engineers will design an RTD measurement device for your specific application, including temperature sensor assemblies that require connection heads, thermowells and/or transmitters.
