Mt. Olive, N.J.-based American Sensor Technologies, Inc. (AST) has released a new Hazardous Location Pressure Sensor Products catalog. Due to an expanding product line, new approvals and added capabilities, their “hazardous location” approved products are segmented into a new 43 page booklet. Products are catalogued into three main sections: UL/cUL approved, CSA approved, and Applications.
AST carries UL-approved Class I, Division 1 intrinsically safe and Class I, Division 2 non-incendive products. Three product configurations are featured: Standard, Adjustable and Submersible. Standard and Adjustable sensors are available with pressure ranges from 0 to 2.5 psi through 0 to 10,000 psi and Submersible sensors from 0 to 5 psi through 0 to 100 psi.
Due to the recent addition of pressure containment requirements in Canada, the company has also expanded its hazardous area product line by introducing the CSA Single Seal approval. New electrical code requirements for pressure sensors in Canada are outlined in the catalog. Listed are all the approved products, including the AST4600 Explosionproof. The CSA-certified products are tested to U.S. UL standards, allowing customers to purchase one sensor for either requirement.
In addition, the Hazardous Location Pressure Sensors catalog includes typical applications in which each product could be implemented. Using industry-location photographs, the catalog describes how sensors can be used in tanks, on-shore, off-shore, pipelines and compressor panels.
