Critical Applications of Eclipse® 705 Transmitter
Apr 13 2011 Read 945 Times
The Eclipse® 705 from Magnetrol (Belgium) is type approved for steam drums, EN 12952-11 (water tube boilers) and EN 12953-9 (shell type boilers) as “primary safety” and “secondary safety”. Combined with a 7MS probe the device can be used in saturated steam applications at a pressure of 155 bar at an equivalent temperature of 345°C.
Additional diagnostic tools allow the user to integrate this transmitter into highly demanding safety instrument loops. With a Safe Failure Fraction (SFF) of 91% the device scores amongst the highest – if not the highest – safety levels.
It is possible to install two or even three Eclipse® devices on one external cage for specific applications. Even when installing only two devices in one cage a SIL3 safety level can be obtained. Adding a third device to the same cage assures continuity to the production process. The three obtained individual level signals increase the overall reliability.
