Original Press Release:
New Solid State Chill Out(TM) Prevents Low Temperature Damage
The new Chill-Out(TM) senses freezing temperatures within any 6 inch section along its length. It replaces fragile and difficult to install gas capillary tubes and their mechanical switches ("Freezestats"). Unlike the capillary tubes, this sensor can be installed horizontally or vertically or easily formed to fit any shaped system.
The sensor elements are available in a variety of styles including bendable aluminum tubing, ultra-flexible brass armor and hinged epoxy glass strips. The electronic shut off control can be mounted at the measuring point or within a central control box for convenient monitoring. An LED on the control box indicates a tripped condition, and a manual reset button allows the operator to quickly reinstate the system.
Standard models have a 41°F set point with a DPDT relay; custom models can be ordered with any required trip point.
