Ventilated ATEX container for process analyser (gas chromatograph)

For a customer in the Far East, ELECTROMACH has developed an explosion protected container for a process analyser for usage on an oil refinery.

Gas chromatograph

The gas chromatograph will measure the amount of hydrogen. This should be done at the refinery and as close to the process gas pipe as possible. For the most accurate result, the hydrogen measurement must be completed in a limited time frame. The length of the heated sample-pipe has a major influence on the amount of total time necessary for this measurement.

The Ex-container

The gas chromatograph will be installed in an explosion protected container. The container has been designed as a fully welded construction and has been insulated and specially coated to meet the extreme site conditions.

To guarantee the functioning of the analyser, the temperature inside the container will be kept on a average of approx. 25°C, while the temperature outside the container can vary between -5°C and +60°C.

New upgraded Appello high output voice signalling sounders

E2S has introduced new versions of its all-digital Appello combined voice signalling and tone sounders that allow four different 30 second long voice, music or sound messages to be recorded and replayed at CD quality, improving clarity and intelligibility.

The Appello can be configured to replay just the recorded messages or the content can be alternated with one of the 45 alarm tones embedded in the unit. The four alarm stages are remotely selectable and the message playback and the alarm tones have independent volume controls, enabling the outputs to be fine-tuned to the installed location.
