Burst-detection system – Flo-Tel +

Rupture-disc manufacturer Elfab says it has been awarded an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of 66 for its ATEX-approved burst detection system, Flo-Tel™+.

The company says Flo-Tel™+ is the only non-invasive, fail-safe detection system on the market. Flo-Tel™+ can be either hardwired or used in conjunction with Elfab’s ATEX-approved wireless detection system, Radio-Tel™.

Elfab says an IP66 rating makes Flo-Tel™+ suitable for use in highly-dusty environments and areas where short-term flooding may occur. At a time when zero emissions and more stringent quality standards are becoming increasingly important, Flo-Tel™+ can offer unprecedented advantages, from triggering alarms to shutting down a process, it concludes.
