The new Performance Level ‘c’ versions are the ideal solution for increasing the safety of extruders.
The Melt pressure filled sensors with an extensimetric technology are today enriched by new versions specifically designed to increase the safety level of machinery imposed by current international standards.
The PL 'c ' series in fact complies with the latest revision of standard EN1114-1 related to the safety requirements of the extruders with the new Performance Level 'c' version whose statement of conformity has been issued by the German certification body TÜV Rheinland.
This version features smart electronics with auto-diagnostics that detects all possible fault conditions. Additional safety is ensured by an integrated relay that changes state in case of over-pressures or passing of the set limit in conformity to the requirements of Namur NE21 and NE43.
The benefits are tangible and immediate: lower risks for operators, higher safety levels for the machinery (i.e. Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and Standard EN1114-1 compliance) and complete respect of the environment (i.e. the diathermic oil is a Food and Drug Administration approved substance as well as the NaK is a Generally Recognized As Safe substance).
Gefran: the first and the only company today in the market with a comprehensive range of Performance Level ‘c’ Melt pressure transducers.
