Ideal for Chemical Processes, Oil/Gas Refineries, and More
Plant engineers and technicians responsible for harsh and/or corrosive chemical-based operations will find the rugged S80-T80 pH Monitoring System from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) is designed for precise measurement from 0.00 to 14.00 pH and to withstand industrial solvents, oxidizers, acids and bases up to scalding temperatures of 226°F (130°C).
ECD’s highly intelligent S80 pH Sensors are available in specific configurations for difficult industrial applications. The S80 Sensor has replaceable pH electrode cartridges that have been designed in rugged material configurations with the electrode cartridge featuring a two-tine polyether ether ketone (PEEK) body, multiple junction reference and uniquely ruggedized industrial-grade pH glass.
With a semi-crystalline thermoplastic structure, PEEK polymer body materials offer excellent physical properties under high temperature exposure and chemical exposure. The long-life ECD S80 pH electrode cartridge is easily replaceable to reduce the cost of maintenance without having to replace the complete sensor.
The S80 pH Sensor with PEEK body materials is suitable for use in highly aggressive solvents, oxidizing solutions, acids and bases. Typical applications for S80 pH Sensors with PEEK construction include chemical separations and solvent recovery in both the chemical process and pharmaceutical industries, along with chlorine production, flotation in mining ore mineral recovery, electroplating, glass or other material etching and more.
The accurate measurement of pH with the S80 Sensor helps plants reduce the use of caustic chemicals and solutions to the minimum necessary for effective process management. Reducing the use of such chemicals to the extent possible protects valuable plant equipment and thus reduces maintenance/replacement cycles, while also limiting the potential environmental impact of such operations.
The S80 pH Sensors convert analog signals from their electrode cartridges into a digital protocol that allows two way communications with the S80 Transmitter. The identity of the sensor, measurement type and serial number are all stored in the sensor’s memory along with three calibration registers.
The S80 Sensors come in immersion or insertion package configurations that are designed with a 0.75-inch MNPT compression fitting as the process connection. This design employs a variable insertion length to accommodate installation in pipe tees, flow cells or through tank walls. The retractable configuration is designed with a 1-inch MNPT ball valve, a 1-x-0.75 inch reducer and a 0.75 inch MNPT compression fitting to provide the process connection.
The highly intelligent T80 Transmitter is a universal device available with single or dual channels designed for the continuous measurement of pH, ORP, pION, Dissolved Oxygen, Turbidity, Conductivity or Resistivity in a general purpose industrial environment. The Model T80 transmitter digitally communicates with any ECD S80 Intelligent Sensor, automatically configuring the transmitter’s menus and display screens to the measured parameter.
