New Pressure Monitoring Solution from SOR and Onyx Valve

Onyx Valve has partnered with SOR, Inc. for a new solution for monitoring pressure on tough applications. The device utilizes an Onyx Isolator Ring and a multi-function pressure instrument SGT® (from SOR, Inc.). The Onyx Isolator ring provides a practical, cost-effective way of obtaining accurate pressure measurements on slurries, abrasives and hard- to- handle materials. The Onyx Isolator Ring (Patented Design) is vacuum-filled at the factory with high-viscosity silicone-fluid; then permanently sealed with Onyx's Revolutionary "Module-Seal". The Onyx Isolator Ring can be used in a variety of industries such as chemical, food & beverage, mining, pulp & paper and waste water treatment. Typical applications include (but are not limited to):

- Pressure measurement of slurries, corrosives and abrasives
- Monitoring pressure on long distance pipelines to detect line breakage

The Onyx Isolator Ring is available with a Center Section made of SS316 or Carp-20; the elastomers available include Neoprene, Buna-N, EPDM, Viton and Hypalon.

The SGT® Electronic Pressure Instrument is an innovative field sensor from SOR (Static-O-Ring). This multi-function device provides two relays, local indication and a 4-20mA output and is designed for use in Class 1, Div 2 hazardous locations. Fast response, self-diagnostics, on-line testing and password protection help ensure that the SGT provides reliable information for monitoring and controlling applications. Available in ranges from 10 to 2,000 psig/psia and 30"Hg vacuum, the SGT is UL and cUL approved and ATEX certified for hazardous applications.

Since 1946, SOR Inc. has offered a comprehensive line of pressure, temperature, level, and flow instrumentation for a wide variety of industries and applications. SOR has a registered quality system to ISO 9001. World headquarters are located in Lenexa, Kansas USA with satellite offices in the United Kingdom and China. SOR also supports its markets worldwide with over 120 representatives.
