AST TransmitterAmerican Sensor Technologies’ (AST) dual pressure/temperature transmitter provides both pressure and temperature outputs from a single process point. In addition to simplifying control systems, the Model AST46PT Explosion-proof Pressure/Temperature Transmitter offers both a pressure reading along with a temperature sensor output for less than the cost of a stand-alone temperature sensor. Designed for low-power systems, these dual-output transmitters generate both a pressure and temperature reading with the power consumption of one sensor. The dual-output configuration also reduces process penetration points and leaks that are important considerations in critical systems such as hydrogen, oxygen, heavy oil processing, hydraulics, analyzers, offshore, pipelines and ammonia systems. Incorporating a microprocessor-controlled design and one-piece body construction, the explosion-proof pressure/temperature transmitter offers high accuracy pressure and temperature measurements of +/-0.1 percent and 1.0 percent BFSL, respectively. Units are available in various temperature ranges from -40 F to 250 F (-40 C to 125 C) and pressure ranges up to 20,000 PSI (1,400 Bar). The device is also CSA-approved for use in hazardous areas including Class 1 Div 1 Explosion-proof Groups A, B, C and D, and for mining applications, Class 2 Div 1 Groups E, F and G. The dual-output pressure/temperature transmitter can be constructed in a wide range of wetted materials, including high-quality stainless steels and super alloys: 17-4PH SS, 316L SS, Inconel 718, Waspalloy, and Hastelloy C-276.
