Class I, Division 1, Submersible Pressure Transmitters

TURCK introduces a new submersible pressure transmitter to meet the increasingly difficult level detection challenges presented in industrial environments, like tanks containing liquids such as gas and diesel, or wastewater and irrigation systems. TURCK’s PT4510 submersible pressure transmitter was designed for low level applications of up to 400 inches, while the PT4500 is available in ranges up to 100 psig.

The PT4500 and PT4510 submersible pressure transmitters are used to detect the level of water or other media with similar density by placing the transmitter at the bottom of the tank holding the liquid. These transmitters convert the pressure reading to an analog 4-20 mA output signal. The electrical connection to the transmitter is routed through the top of the tank and contains power and signal wires, as well as a breathing tube used as a reference port to determine the atmospheric pressure outside of the tank.

These IP 68 rated stainless steel pressure transmitters may be used in industrial applications, as well as hazardous classified areas. The sensor carries a UL/cUL 913 approval for use in Class I, Division 1, Groups C and D locations when installed with an approved barrier, such as TURCK’s IM33 series.
