Model P56

SKU: P56

Capacitance Probe, High Temperature and Pressure, Tubular Ground

The Delta Controls Model P56 Capacitance Probe utilizes RF admittance technology for high pressure and temperature applications. The concentric ground sheath provides a ground reference for sensing low dieletric materials. The 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.

The P56 can be installed in high pressure / temperaturefatty acid reactors, steam condensate knockouts, coal gassification, and similar difficult applications. The ceramic materials used are extremely strong. Delta Controls has developed packaging that protects the units from inadvertent damage while being transported or stored
