Model P56

SKU: P56

Capacitance Probe, Extreme Temperature and Pressure

The Delta Controls Model P55 probe allows R.F. Admittance technology to be used in very high pressure and temperature services. This recently developed probe can replace nuclear gamma ray sensors and solid mechanical displacers in many applications. Using a probe avoids difficulty due to large size, high purchase costs and high installation costs. This probe has been applied to high pressure/temperature fatty acid reactors, steam condensate knockouts, coal gassification, and similar difficult applications. The ceramic materials used are very strong, however, they are brittle at ambient temperature. Delta Controls has developed packaging that protects the units from inadvertent damage while being transported or stored.

Features

  • Working pressure service to 1500 PSIG (100 BAR) at 850°F (455°C)
  • All primary seals and insulators are ceramic
  • Multiple sealing produces maximum reliability and safety as well as a long service life
  • Dual sealing is basic on P55 probe
  • Triple sealing is basic on P56 probe
  • Alumina probe jacket withstands abrasion from slurries and entrained solids
  • Can be used for steam condensate drainage under maximum service conditions
