New thermo-paramagnetic oxygen transmitter works without drift in hydrogen applications.

Hydrogen applications are known to cause significant sensor drift in traditional oxygen analysers. The measurements in such environments are not only false but also limited to certain hydrogen concentrations.

With the latest thermo-paramagnetic technology from Michell applied to the sensor element of the new XTP600 oxygen transmitter, these limitations are lifted. The special design of the measurement cell eliminates transmitter drift and deterioration by preventing the hydrogen molecules from diffusing into the sensor.

The new XTP600 oxygen transmitter from Michell was developed as a robust self-contained oxygen transmitter for applications in various areas of the process industry. The XTP600 transmitter measures oxygen content between 0.01 and 100% utilising the latest developments in the non-depleting thermo-paramagnetic technology. With no moving parts and explosion proof housing, the transmitter can be directly used in harsh industrial environments as well as hazardous areas.

In applications where fast response speed and high accuracy are essential for safety, the XTP600 oxygen transmitter is ideal. The accuracy and linearity is less than 1% FS while the speed of response is less than 16 s for a 63% step change. Users also benefit from low maintenance costs due to the non-depleting thermo-paramagnetic technology as well as the extremely simple and user friendly design.
