Model ER4000 is a retractable, electrical resistance probe commonly used in field and plant applications. A specially designed packing gland is used with the probe for insertion into or retraction from a pressurized system without a process shutdown. Standard packing material in the packing gland is Teflon®. Grafoil® packing can be provided if requested. When the probe element requires replacement, the packing gland assembly may be reused. (Probe packing should also be replaced at this time.) The probe is designed to mount onto a 1" piping system, but can easily be adapted to fit your specific requirements. The probe assembly consists of a replaceable insertion rod with an element, a hermetically sealed connector welded in place, and a packing gland. A safety chain and safety nut are also provided to prevent blowout. A velocity shield can be added to the assembly if required. The insertion length (I.L.) is calculated to the end of the shield or to the end of the element if a shield is not present. Probe length can be specified by the customer. For standard probes, the maximum insertion length is given in the chart below. Several standard elements are available to meet your specific needs.
Probe Body - 316 Stainless Steel Element Seal - Glass or Teflon® Fill Material - Ceramic Temperature Rating - 500° F / 260° C Pressure Rating - 2000 PSI / 138 Bar Mounting - 1" Full Port Valve (Min.)
The Easy Tool is required for probe insertion or retraction in systems with pressure over 150 pounds.
