CorrTran® MV Corrosion Detection Monitors Receive ATEX Approval

Allows users in potentially explosive atmospheres to monitor corrosion data online and in real time as any other process variable

TWINSBURG, OH - Intrinsic safety versions of Pepperl+Fuchs CorrTran MV Corrosion Detection Transmitters with multivariable outputs are now ATEX approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

CorrTran MV is truly unique in its ability to allow users to monitor online and in real time general and local corrosion rates, as well as conductivity, as they would with any other process variable, says Jack Lehner, Business Development Manager. With ATEX approval, CorrTran MV can now be utilized in explosive atmospheres to help users determine the effectiveness of their corrosion inhibitors, and detect and correct corrosion issues through upkeep and preventative maintenance before they become a costly problem, he says.

CorrTran MV transmitters can be located in both general purpose, intrinsically safe, explosion/flame proof and Class I, Division 2 hazardous locations, and are suitable for direct or remote mounting. New models feature the same design and dimensions as earlier versions, and can be retrofitted to older units.
