K Controls 007-100 Valve Position Monitors specified for use in FPSO ballast tanks
04 September 2013
007-100 Valve Position Monitors have been specified for use on actuated valves in the vessel stabilisation ballast tanks of a new floating, protection, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).
The majority of the position monitors contain end of travel reed proximity switches and some provide a 4-20mA with HART® signal. Klearvision visual indicators were specified for certain applications.
The 007-100 enclosures have been investment cast from a high-alloy austenitic stainless steel and they have been independently tested by SGS Baseefa to IP68, for submersion at a depth of 30 metres.
When not submerged, the position monitors could be in an area where hazardous gasses are present. They are therefore ATEX and IECEx certified intrinsically safe. All the units have been supplied with multi pin connectors and the associated cable sets that meet the exacting standards required for both subsea and shipboard use. Mounting kits for the actuators were supplied in Super Duplex stainless steel.
