American Sensor Technologies, Inc. (AST) has achieved ATEX certification of its Explosion Proof Pressure Transmitters for Class I Zone 0 Exd hazardous locations. The added approvals enhance the ability for equipment manufacturers to specify AST pressure transducers as the sensors can now operate in both North America and Europe.
The AST4530 submersible pressure transducer from American Sensors Technologies has been certified by CSA International to Class I Div 1, Groups C and D for use inintrinsically safe areas with an approved barrier.
American Sensor Technologies (AST) now offers its pressure transmitters with high pressure process connections using 316L stainless steel to enable users to integrate products that require liquid or gas compatible with 316L stainless steel, such as hydrogen, natural gas, or water.
It's old the 'two birds, one stone' idea: New sensors measure both pressure and temperature from a single process point. This dual output configuration reduces process penetration points and leaks that are important considerations in critical systems such as hydrogen, oxygen, heavy oil processing, hydraulics, analyzers, offshore, pipelines and ammonia systems.
