New Pressure Data Logger for Hazardous Areas including Zone Zero

Feb 13 2019

Measurement of high pressures and temperatures in environments where it is likely there may be explosive gases just got easier.

The SST Controls digital recording pressure manometer has some unique features that make the measurement process simple and painless and is certified for use in Zone 0 areas.

By thinking about what an engineer needs and the application, SST Controls have introduced a system that reduces both downtime and turnaround time for data acquisition.

Our pressure recorder has two components that mechanically mate together to create a system..

  • A high pressure process transducer in ranges up to 32000 psi with common autoclave F250C (9/16-18 UNF) or M20 x1.5 internal threads.
  • A rugged digital display showing pressure, temperature and peak pressure and a built-in recording function

Connection and disconnection of the display from the transmitter can be performed in a Zone o environment allowing the display to be taken back to the safe area for data download.

As the display automatically finds the pressure transmitter serial number and range when connected, multiple logs can be created by fitting the display to multiple sensors in the hazardous area prior to download in the safe area.

By seperating the pressure transmitter from the recording display, SST’s pressure logger ensures that the transducer’s process thread is kept in the sensing medium (liquid or gas), allowing the process to continue while data is being offloaded from the separated display.

Keeping the transmitter in place also prevents thread damage from continuous removal/ replacement and over-torqueing.

SST Controls range of high pressure transducers in ranges of 14500, 23200, 29000 and 32000 psi have high overpressure ratings and burst pressures of 6000bar, to minimise the chances of pressure spike problems.

With their high accuracy of 0.125% the pressure logger can also be used as a reference gauge for calibrating other pressure transducers in the field.

Data recoding at up to 50Hz and with a memory capacity of 600,000 readings ensures events can be reliably captured and pressure relief valve testing can be performed with the one gauge.

A push button backlight allows readings of live pressures and temperatures as well as min and max pressures seen by the gauge, to be checked at any time of day.

Protected to IP67 the pressure logger display has three soft touch buttons for configuration to pressure units, zero point calibration, datalogging options and backlight settings.

Powered using three user replaceable Duracell Plus AA (LR6) batteries, the battery life of 2000 hours in standard use (88continuous days) or 5 years in standby mode ensures long term measurement integrity.

The provided datalogging software is simple and straightforward. With the USB cable you can download the data to a CSV file and record the TAG/ project and serial number/name pressure and temperature values (if selected).

Supplied with optional calibration certificate traceable to National Standard or with UKAS certification as an option the SST Pressure Logger is ready to deploy in the field.

Options include a protective rubber boot, PELI case, spare batteries.

Technical support is available by phone, email or live chat,to immediately answer any questions and speed up installation and commissioning.
