Two-day Transducer Manufacturing Helps to Significantly Reduce Downtime for Water Level Measurement Sites

Hampton, Va. February 2009 - Pressure Systems, manufacturer of KPSI Level and Pressure Transducers, has announced that three of its most popular KPSI Transducer models are now built and ready to ship in just two days, significantly reducing facility downtime associated with a transducer's failure.

Included in the two-day service are the highly reliable, hydrostatic, submersible 700, 705 and 750 models, used widely throughout the water and wastewater level measurement industries for applications with conditions from general purpose to harsh and adverse.

Currently, standard industry processes can take a week or more. Through its new, streamlined manufacturing process, Pressure Systems is able to cut assembly time by more than half, so orders placed on Monday will ship on Wednesday versus Friday, for example. This is a critical factor to the wide range of facilities, such as level control, pump control and slurry management centers as well as lift stations, that need real-time, round-the-clock water level measurement.

For added reliability and exceptional water resistance, KPSI transducers feature a unique water blocking cable that self-seals in the event of an accidental cut to the cable. Over-molded cabling on the transducers is more reliable than snap-in connectors that can break or wear out over time.

Each transducer comes standard with Pressure Systems' SuperDry vent filter that provides maintenance-free moisture protection for one year and features welded 316 SS construction, with titanium available on the 700 and 705 versions. Optional lifetime lightning protection and temperature measurement output are also available on the transducers.

The general purpose Model 700 features analog outputs of 4 mA to 20 mA and 0 VDC to 5 VDC in custom level ranges up to 700 ft H2O. Static accuracy is +/-1 %FS.

The Model 705 incorporates a flush Teflon-coated elastomeric diaphragm with a surface area of 0.90" to prevent clogging. The transducer is available in custom level ranges from 6 ft H2O to 115 ft H2O with analog outputs of 4 mA to 20 mA or 0 VDC to 5 VDC. Static accuracy is +/-0.25 %FS.

The Model 750 offers a 2.75" non-clogging sensing area for highly viscous applications. Custom level ranges are available from 10 ft H2O to 115 ft H2O with analog outputs of 4 mA to 20 mA or 0 VDC to 5 VDC. Static accuracy is +/-0.25 %FS.
