Optimizing Boiler Performance & Extending Life With High-Temp, High-Pressure CSX2 Conductivity Analyzer

Ideal for Industrial Plants Including Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Electronics, Food & Beverage, Semiconductor, Electric Power Generation and More

Anaheim, CA—September 30—2020—Process and plant engineers will find the high-temperature, high-pressure CSX2 Conductivity Analyzer from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) helps ensure boiler performance while minimizing maintenance, repairs and extending life in a wide range of critical industrial applications requiring water heating and steam.

The versatile, go-almost-anywhere high-temperature, high-pressure CSX2 Conductivity Analyzer is designed for service to 392°F (200°C) and 250 psig, or 212°F (100°C) and 400 psig. This insertion style 0.75-inch MNPT, 316 stainless steel sensor has PEEK® insulators and is available with or without an integral signal conditioner.

The Model CSX2 Conductivity Analyzer measures conductivity over a wide range from 1.0 μS to 50 mS. For accurate measurement and dependable performance, it features built-in sensor temperature compensation that adjusts automatically over installed temperatures from 0>- 392>°F (0>-200>°C).

Hot water is a severe environment for any elastomer. The Model CSX2’s front EPR O-ring seals bear the brunt of the chemical attack, allowing the back seals to remain relatively unaffected. This redundant design increases the reliability of the CSX2, dramatically increasing the usable lifetime of the sensor in these harsh applications.

The Model CSX2’s aluminum junction box is mounted on the rear of the sensor, containing a terminal block and optional signal conditioner. It is an ideal choice for boiler control applications, blowdown control, condensate monitoring, leak detection on heat exchangers and steam purity measurements.

The optional signal conditioner amplifies the conductivity signal, allowing noise-free transmission for hundreds of feet. A wide range of signal conditioners are available for the CSX2 sensor to optimize the conductivity measurement at specific ranges. The ECD Model LQ800 Multi-Channel Controller or the T80 Transmitter have a user specified signal conditioner that is mounted inside the CSX2 instrument or optionally in a remote junction box.

The measurement of conductivity and resistivity in liquid water-based solutions is an essential requirement in a wide range of industrial processes. Conductivity and resistivity measure the electrical conductivity of a solution, which correlates to the purity of the water or the amount of dissolved ions in the liquid.

Accurate, reliable conductivity data is important when either recycling water for re-use within the plant to protect sensitive equipment from internal corrosion (scale) and/or when discharging water from the plant into wastewater treatment systems. The data helps ensure the effluent meets local, state and federal water quality standards to avoid plant shutdowns and costly fines.
