The ceramic sensing element provides a rugged flush open face design which avoids clogging or sludge build up from the materials often encountered in wastewater. The stainless steel construction will satisfy most applications, but an option of Titanium is available where the chemical environments dictate. The standard polyurethane vented cable is molded to the transmitter providing the highest integrity waterproof assembly well proven in thousands of installations worldwide. FEP cable is available as an alternate for harsh environments. A feature of the VL2000 Series is full scale ranges as low as 10” WC.

Applications Include: 

Surface and Run-Off Water

Process Plant and Water Run-Off Monitoring 

Sewage Lift Stations – Ceramic Clog Free

Paper Making Machine

Specifications:

Ranges: Full Scale (Zero based)
0-10, 20, 30, 50” WC
0-1, 5, 10, 15, 30, 50, 100, 150 psig
Other ranges and pressure units can be specified.                                                                              

±0.1%, ±0.25% Accuracies

For Zero Maintenance: 

In order to reduce on site maintenance PMC has developed the  MP 11 Moisture Protection Reference Volume. For vented gauge transmitters this provides a total isolation to the atmosphere by using a custom bladder while maintaining the high performance of the transmitter. This changes volume with Barometric pressure. Totally maintenance free.
