This unit has a plastic body, PTFE jacket, and EPDM rubber seals. It is used for both general purpose and corrosive applications. The electrode rod is continuous and clamp sealed into the body. It does not have a small weak joint where it can break off as do common light duty designs, neither can the rod vibrate loose, unscrew, and fall off. A type 4X PVC hoseproof housing for the remoted electronics is provided. Plugs are provided for spare holes. Trim is stainless steel.
This unit is same as the Model P44A, except each rod has a full length PTFE jacket that extends to within 1" of its tip. The jacket is continuous and is clamp sealed inside the body. There is no gap in or "lapping" over the jacket seal; low cost designs such as those commonly allow buildup material or condensed moisture to short out the probe and cause false switching to occur.
This unit is larger version of the Model P44A; it can hold 5,6, or 7 bare electrode rods.
Same as Model P44C, except equipped with PTFE jackets to within 1" of the electrode rod tips.
Model P44F-G Probes
For Steam, Water & Other Conductive Liquids
Electrode Probe, Heavy Duty, Metal Body, Multiple Rod Type, Tip Sensitive Pressure Tight, ANSI Pipe Connection
This assembly is heavy duty for severe services or when the highest reliability is required. Electrodes are one piece rods passing completely through the body and then clamp sealed inside the body. Seals and electrode jacket are PTFE (jacket extends 1" below the process connection). Safety stops prevent rod blowout even at 3000 PSIG pressure. Both upper and lower rod jackets are clamp sealed to prevent failure due to shorting by moisture condensation and deposits. A type 4X hoseproof housing for remote electronics unit is provided.
Same as Model P44F, except the lower sensing electrode jacket extends to within 1" of the rod tips.
Same as Model P44F, except the electronics are integral to the unit. A type 4X hoseproof housing for integral electronics unit is available.
Same as Model P44G, except the electronics are integral to the unit. A type 4X hoseproof housing for integral electronics unit is available.

Model P46 and P47 Probes
For Sumps, Vented Tanks, And Atmospheric Pressure Services, (Vapor Seal Only, Not Pressure Tight)
Upper Mounting Support Units For Cable Supported Electrode Probes, Adjustable Knot; Multiple Cable Style
Each probe wire is equipped with a rubber "O" ring and a 300 SS plate which provide a vapor seal where the cable exits the body. These units are not suitable for pressure services or where the liquid is fuming or boiling. The length of each electrode cable is adjusted by changing the position of a simple overhand knot. Plugs are provided for unused holes. A basic type 4X hoseproof PVC housing (150°F limit) for use with remote electronics is provided on the P47 series. The P46 series utilizes a cast iron condulet body for strength. Integrally mounted electronics are not available with these styles. The cable wires normally extend to the electronics unit or to a junction box. An optional clamp type terminal strip for junctioning mounted in the housing is available.
This assembly extends out over an open pit or tank. It attaches to the threaded end of a rigid 1/2" NPT conduit which supports it. It is made of heavy cast iron. It can support up to 4 electrodes.
This unit is a larger version of the Model P46B. It mounts on a 1" NPT conduit thread and can accommodate up to 8 electrodes.
This assembly is mounted on a vertical NPT or flanged pipe connection. It is equipped with a basic housing and NPT conduit connection. A clamp type terminal strip, located in the basic housing is optional.
This is a larger version of the Model P47B probe assembly; up to 7 electrodes may be accommodated.
This is still larger version of the Model P47B probe assembly; up to 13 electrodes may be accommodated.
Cable Supported Electrode Lower Sensing Unit
This is our most versatile lower electrode unit. The electrode is sealed inside an insulating body which has a long isolating path to other electrodes, tank wall ground, etc. The unit is equipped with dual Viton seals for utmost reliability. It can be used in strong acids, alkalies, etc. at high temperatures. The PTFE cable insulation is immune to almost any corrosion.
This is a compact unit which is equipped with a close fitting PTFE jacket around the body. The jacket does not cover the cable connection nut. Isolating path to ground is much shorter than in the type "SE". It is suitable for most normal applications where switch points are spaced apart in a medium or large size tank.
This unit is similar to the "SJ" except that it has a bare stainless steel cable that has been coated with PTFE. It is intended for dirty rough services that are only somewhat corrosive.
