PCB Piezotronics Inc. of MTS Systems Corp. now sells two industrial case-isolated cryogenic ICP accelerometers — Models 637A06 and 638A06 — for use in low-temperature applications such as cryogenic centrifugal and reciprocating pumps.
They are suitable for liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing; industrial gas processing (argon, helium, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen); pharmaceutical production (statin drugs, biotech products such as vaccines); and frozen food production and storage.
The Model 637A06 and 638A06 accelerometers feature:
- Specialized cryogenic circuitry and quartz shear sensing technology to promote survivability in extremely cold applications
- Low temperature coefficient of sensitivity to ensure accurate measurements throughout the wide operating temperature range
- Electrically case isolated to prevent noise issues and ground loops without the added height or weight of an accessory isolation base
- Welded, hermetically-sealed housing of 316L stainless steel and rugged two-pin MIL connector to withstand the harshest industrial environments
An array of cable assemblies are available to support the launch of Models 637A06 and 638A06.
