Labom releases GA2730 Minitherm thermometer for explosive environments

September 15 2015 - Labom releases GA2730 Minitherm thermometer with ATEX and SIL2 approval for use in explosive gas atmospheres zone 1 and 2 and dust atmospheres zone 21 and 22. In addition the Pt100 element meets the SIL2 safety requirements of EN 61508 for functional safety.

The combination of high hygienic and safety standards qualifies the type series GA2730 Minitherm for demanding measurement  tasks in the fields of pharmaceutics, biotechnology and food industry.

The HIT thermowell system for hygienic invasive temperature measurement (HIT) is welded orbitally in a process pipe section. The neck tube with the Pt100 sensor of the resistance thermometer can thus be assembled and disassembled without any interruption of the process. The invasive measurement method enables a particularly fast responding measurement. The GA2730-Minitherm sensor is also available with a G3/8 sensor port which is compatible with protective sleeves of other manufacturers.  

Specifically, the thermometer has been approved for ex classes Ex II 1 G Ex ia IIC T6/T5/T4, Ex II 2 G Ex ib IIC T6/T5/T4, Ex II 1 D Ex iaD 20 T89°C and Ex II 2D Ex ibD 21 T121°C. Compliance with the requirements for SIL2 safety functions of electrical system ensures that the thermometer also works reliably in combination with appropriate transducers.
