In this video, we will show you how to replace the protective cage on your PT-500 Submersible Pressure Transducer. Protective cages are an important feature on a submersible pressure transducer. They also add a lot of expense. The PT-500 from APG let's you remove and re-use the cage when you replace the sensor, saving you up to 25% on a replacement.
This is just one small feature you'll find on the PT-500 that isn't available on competitive submersible pressure transmitters.
00:05 REMOVABLE CAGE
Hi, and welcome to APGTV. I’m Shaw Merrill, and today we’re going to show you a cool feature for the PT-500 submersible pressure transducer. It’s our patented cage, which is actually removable. We’re going to show you how to take this thing off, and how it’s going to save you money when you have to replace your sensor.
00:21 CAGE PROVIDE PROTECTION FOR HARSH ENVIRONMENTS
Now the cage provides the PT-500 a little extra protection when installed in harsh environments, extending the life of the sensor. However, at some point, every sensor is going to fail, and so replacing a sensor and cage can be expensive. If you can replace just the sensor, it can save you some money.
00:39 HOW TO REMOVE THE CAGE
To remove the cage from the PT-500, first make sure the PT-500 is sitting flat on a counter or a hard surface. Now to remove that cage, simply remove the retaining ring with your C-ring pliers. Then remove the PT-500 from the cage.
00:56 HOW TO INSTALL THE CAGE
To install the cage on the PT-500, just place the sensor in the center of the cage and then replace the retaining ring on the inside of the rivets.
