MPI-E Chemical: Safe, Continuous Level Readings in Hazardous OEM Spaces

Pump skids are great OEM products for MPI-E Chemical level probesFor an OEM, level measurement in easy places is, well, easy. In fact, in some places, it’s so easy a float switch can do it (well, several hundred float switches). But we’re not here to talk about those places today. We’re going to look at continuous level measurement with harsh chemicals. And in explosive atmospheres. And the availability to meet OEM and system-integrator needs. That’s right, we looking at the Intrinsically Safe, Chemically Resistant MPI-E Chemical Float Level Transmitter.

APG Introduces the new MPX-E Chemical Magnetostrictive Float Level Transmitter

APG's New MPX-E Chemical

LOGAN, UT – Automation Products Group, Inc. (APG) introduces a new float level transmitter, the MPX-E Chemical Magnetostrictive Float Level Transmitter with a chemical resistant coating.

The corrosion resistant MPX-E Chemical brings you accurate and dependable level measurements in places where stainless steel doesn't measure up. The chemical resistant coating is designed for use in corrosive, acidic, and marine environments, such as: sulfuric acid, boric acid, hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide, and sea salt water.

Why This Level Transmitter Is Almost Always Best For Harsh Chemicals

When it comes to harsh chemicals, one level transmitter consistently rises above the rest

Not all sensors are created equal. Some level transmitters have distinct advantages that give them access to applications where other sensors are unable to perform.

In past blog posts we have discussed a variety of application obstacles. They include things like high temperatures, foam, vapor, and turbulence. Today we would like to cover some level sensors that can monitor harsh chemicals.

4 Tips On The Road To Chemical Compatibility

Chemical reactions are typically a bad thing when related to sensor housings and performanceChemical compatibility refers to chemicals and materials that do not react with each other. Chemical reactions can be useful in the manufacture of many things. However, for the purposes of this discussion, it’s a bad thing. The reactions we’re talking about break down important infrastructure and equipment till it eventually fails.

Failure to check chemical and material compatibility can result in disastrous...
