Non-Invasive ATEX Approved Burst Detection.

Flo-Tel+ is a non-invasive fail safe detection system providing an excellent solution for identifying when a rupture disc functions within arduous operating conditions. After rupturing the disc is the only element to be replaced, eliminating expensive re-wiring costs. Flo-Tel™+ is complete with an inbuilt thermistor for process temperature monitoring when incorporated into the wireless Radio-Tel™ detection system.

System Operation

Operating on simple reed switch and magnet technology, Flo-Tel™+ is designed to offer a practical solution for rupture disc detection needs. The sensor is fitted into the holder with a magnet on the rupture disc. When the rupture disc bursts; the rupture disc with its magnet arc away from the sensor, giving an open circuit signal. After rupturing the disc is the only element that needs replacing.

  • ATEX approved ExII 1GD EEx ia IIC. EC-Type Examination Certificate ITS03 ATEX 21698X, must be connected to an intrinsically safe supply.
  • ATEX approved, thus able to operate in all levels of potential explosive atmospheres
  • Sensor is not in contact with the process therefore there are no potential leak paths
  • Non invasive design, therefore not affected by downstream pressure fluctuations or corrosion
  • IP 66 rated
  • Inbuilt thermistor provides data on the temperature of the process

Integral Flo-Tel™+ should be connected to an Intrinsically safe supply that is compatible with values:

  • Ui = 50v.
  • Ii = 250mA.
  • Maximum Current = 0.1A
  • Maximum Voltage = 24V
  • Maximum Power = 1W
  • Supplied with a 2m cable.
  • Maximum process temperature 250°C.
    Minimum process temperature -55°C.
