First Intrinsically Safe level indicator for fixed fire systems
02 April 2015
Following the great success of the original standard level indicator with thousands sold worldwide, Link Instruments was faced with a new challenge. After four years of research and development the company is pleased to announce the arrival of the first intrinsically safe level indicator for fixed fire systems.
Listening to clients' needs is essential for the development of any new product. With safety being of paramount importance in intrinsically safe areas, our clients were finding that testing in these areas involved lengthy shutdowns, supplementary man hours resulting in extra cost and lost time, and asked if we could find a solution.
Designed by Engineers for Engineers
The ULLC –IS is certified to Group II Category 2G Ex ib IIC T4 Gb allowing it to be used for all Zone 1 areas. The unit is simple to use and requires no calibration, it has been completely redesigned and as with all Link Instrument products, it is built in house following stringent QA procedures and testing. Our testing area ensures that each instrument is tested against a range of cylinders containing different mediums before finally released to our clients.
The unit itself has a robust metal body and a display that clearly indicates when the liquid level is found. Using ultrasonic level detection allows a large number of cylinders to be tested rapidly and precisely without the need to dismantle them from the fire system. The unit is capable of detecting a large variety of extinguishing agents including NOVEC, CO2, FM200 and Halons.
For multi-banked cylinders the complete kit has a bespoke extension rod allowing access to second and third row cylinders, the sensors have a removable head allowing ease of cleaning for instrument maintenance.
We have a training facility that will allow engineers to test the product before they decide on purchase and we offer a free half day training and certificate of competency in the use of the equipment at our headquarters in Petersfield. By prior arrangement we will demonstrate the instrument and offer training anywhere in the world. The unit is also delivered with a training DVD which illustrates the simple operation.
