Provides real-time monitoring for early detection and preventive maintenanceTWINSBURG, OH – Pepperl+Fuchs’ innovative CorrTran™ Corrosion Detection Transmitters are now available to satisfy Class I, Division 2 hazardous location applications. CorrTran™ transmitters allow users to monitor online the effectiveness of their corrosion inhibitors, and to detect and correct corrosion issues through upkeep and preventive maintenance before they become a costly problem.Their low-power design allows mounting directly within a Division 2 hazardous location. In this configuration, the control signal (4-20 mA circuit) must be connected in accordance with the National Electrical Code according to Division 2 wiring methods. Division 2 locations are considered hazardous only under abnormal conditions, such as a faulty valve, unexpected release, or aging seal, among others.These rugged transmitters feature a two-wire loop powered 4-20mA signal with HART protocol for accurate real-time monitoring. Through these signals, general corrosion or pitting of pipe or vessels can be detected. A variety of probe styles and materials of construction are also available to satisfy most any application requirement. Pepperl+Fuchs is a world leader in the design, manufacture and application of high quality process automation products and services. Pepperl+Fuchs is the number one provider of hazardous area technology from intrinsic safety to purge and pressurization, level measurement and Fieldbus.
