New thermo-paramagnetic oxygen transmitter for harsh industrial applications

The new XTP600 oxygen transmitter from Michell is a robust self-contained oxygen transmitter that makes oxygen measurement in the process industry as simple as a field pressure or temperature measurement. While traditional paramagnetic oxygen analysers suffer from drift, Michell's latest thermo paramagnetic technology makes this transmitter almost drift-free.

The XTP600 measures oxygen content between 0.01 and 100% using the latest developments in non-depleting thermo-paramagnetic technology. With no moving parts, the transmitter can be sited directly in harsh industrial environments without any risk of interference from vibration. The extremely compact size and simple design of the XTP600 makes it ideal for installation next to the measurement point with no additional cost for extensive piping or frequent maintenance and calibration.

Hydrogen applications are known to cause significant sensor drift in traditional oxygen analysers. With the latest thermo-paramagnetic technology the sensor element of the XTP600 is extremely stable even in high hydrogen concentrations.

Available in an explosion proof housing, the XTP600 oxygen transmitter from Michell can be mounted in hazardous areas particularly in applications where, for safety reasons, a fast oxygen measurement is required. Compensated for background gases, the Michell oxygen transmitter can reliably measure oxygen concentrations with an accuracy of <±1% FS.

Combined with the 24 V DC power supply further features - like local display, two outputs and two inputs - make the XTP600 a useful tool for flexible and cost-effective oxygen measurement in a wide range of process industry applications.
