Elcontrol ATEX certified sensors and burner control units
13 February 2015
For over 50 years Elcontrol has been at the forefront of the design, development and manufacture of industrial electronic controls, with particular expertise in flame sensing devices and burner control units. The company has long-established industrial experience in the design and manufacture of burner control units and flame scanners, employing ultra-violet, infra-red and ionisation probe flame sensing, with numerous established installations wo
Elcontrol has built up considerable expertise over the years in the manufacture of Hazardous Area equipment for use in environments such as petrochemical and gas plants. The range includes ATEX Certified Ex-d (IIB and IIC) and Ex-i equipment.
ATEX Certified Ex-i Intrinsically Safe Trip Amplifiers
1 The Elcontrol Ex-i range includes equipment utilising ionisation probe techniques (the ISFR320 series) and Flame Conductivity/Infra-red Flicker techniques (the ISIR320 series).
2 Elcontrol also supply associated probe assemblies (IS/FE3) and infra-red scanners (IS/VH32P) for use with these trip amplifiers.
3 The equipment is suitable for safe-area use, and is fitted into an IP65 plastic enclosure as standard. Variants are also available fitted within our IIB & IIC range of flameproof enclosures, for deployment within the hazardous.
ATEX Certified Ex-d (IIB & IIC) Scanners, Trip Amplifiers and Ignition Units
1 The Elcontrol UVH6/FP (IIB) & FP87 (IIC) ranges of EX-d equipment include scanners, trip amplifiers, Ex-i trip amplifiers (incorporating our ISFR & ISIR series of Ex-i equipment), and high tension spark ignition units, for use in IIB & IIC atmospheres.
2 The scanners primarily utilise Ultra-Violet flame sensing, but may, if required, be backed up with Infra-Red or Visible Light sensors. The scanners may be used with appropriate Elcontrol safe-area trip amplifiers, or with matching UVH6/FP or FP87 series Ex-d trip amplifiers.
3 The UVH6/FP/AMP & FP87/AMP trip amplifier ranges can accommodate the inputs from one or two matching UVH6/FP or FP87/UVH scanners, according to the requirements of the installation.
The company can also manufacture all associated leads for the safe interconnection of our hazardous area equipment, ensuring that the safety and integrity of the installation is maintained.
Safe Area Equipment
Elcontrol manufactures a wide range of safe area equipment, covering all of the product areas already mentioned. These may be used in support of our hazardous area equipment, or to form complete installations on their own, where operating conditions are less onerous.
Because no two installations or operating conditions are completely the same, Elcontrol always endeavours to ensure total customer satisfaction by careful planning and design, in partnership with its clients, before any bespoke manufacture commences.
Assistance with Applications for R&D Grants
Elcontrol is committed to remaining at the forefront of innovation. The company welcomes and encourages enquiries regarding new solutions designed to solve seemingly impossible problems, or to come up with more efficient approaches.
Depending upon precise applications and industry sectors there may be possibilities for customers to apply for grant funding in support of bespoke R&D work. The company’s development personnel are available to assist with any such applications.
As the saying goes: “It’s all part of the service”.
