Emerson announces two new options for
its Mobrey Squing 2 vibrating short-fork
Stainless steel housing option and Hastelloy C wetside
sensor option increase sensors resistance to
corrosion and chemical attack.
Emerson Process Management has announced availability of
a stainless steel housing option and Hastelloy C wetside sensor
option for its Mobrey Squing vibrating short-fork level sensor.
Both options provide a significant increase in resistance to
corrosion and chemical attack for consistent reliable level
measurement in aggressive offshore, chemical and petrochemical
environments. The stainless steel housing is ATEX Flameproof,
FM Explosion-proof and safe area approved, and the Hastelloy
sensor is ideal for detection of hostile liquids such as bleaches,
chlorines, acids, fluorides and fuel oils.
The new versions of Squing 2 are available with a choice of threads
and flanges, and feature a visible heart-beat LED which flashes
continuously to give perpetual indication of state, and constant
confirmation that the sensor is operational. Warnings of a fault
within the sensor or its circuitry are indicated by a change in flash
rate, explains John Stewart, Product Manager, Mobrey
Measurement division of Emerson. An LED off state indicates
a power supply or similar fault. Also incorporated into the design
is a magnetic test point to allow quick checking of the switch and
Suitable for any liquid with a specific gravity less than 2.0 (approx
2000 kg/m3) and a viscosity up to 10000 centiPoise, the Mobrey
sensor can operate in temperatures up to 150 Deg.C, and in
pressures between vacuum and 100 bar.
The forks themselves extend only 50mm to allow easy installation
into a tank or a pipe. Squing 2 is available as an intrinsically safe
option, has no moving parts, and requires no maintenance.
Emerson=B9s range of Squing level sensors include a robust plastic
housing sealed to IP66/IP67; an Explosion-proof/ Flameproof
approved aluminium housing; the compact Mini Squing which
features all of the benefits of Squing 2 in a compact low cost package;
and the Squing TD series water ingress level detector which meets
the International Maritime Organisation SOLAS Regulation XII/12 for
bulk cargo carriers.

The new level sensor options add to the breadth of Mobrey level
instrumentation that features reliability and best fit for applications,
contributing to the greater than 2 percent operations improvement
made possible by PlantWeb digital architecture from Emerson.
