Transmitter approved to European norms for steam drums

26 January 2009

The Eclipse 705, 2-wire Guided Wave Radar of Magnetrol is type approved to the newest European norms for steam drums, EN 12952-11 (water tube boilers) and EN 12953-9 (shell type boilers) as “primary safety ” and “secondary safety” device. As a secondary safety device, Eclipse fulfills all general control functions on the steam drum. As a ‘primary safety’ device, Eclipse operates as a safety switch and turns off the boiler in a safe way in case an emergency / dangerous situation occurs.

The Eclipse uses the technology of Guided Wave Radar. This measuring principle measures independently of the process parameters. High pressure and temperature changes inside a boiler have an impact on the accuracy and reliability of the traditional transmitters. The process seal of the 7MS probe is designed for use on saturated steam, and takes the sudden and aggressive changes of process pressure and temperature into account.

The Eclipse 705 is available with a SIL2 version. With a Safe Failure Fraction of 91%, Eclipse is the only TDR transmitter on the market that scores as high on safety level.
