This is perhaps one of the toughest and most unique applications in the world that Turtle Tough provide an unrivalled and proven solution. Ammonium Nitrate applications involve high temperatures, aggressive mediums and the challenge of maintaining sensors that literally “freeze” with product the moment they are removed from the process, rendering the sensor useless.
Our retractable pH Sensor is uniquely designed to interface with our hot-tap insertion valve retractable assembly. For this application, the modified hot-tap assembly includes a cross-flow dual port purge flush assembly allowing the sensor to be flushed with hot water on removal. This allows for safe and clean removal from the process under pressure.
Our hot-tap assemblies are a common feature in industries where direct access to the process is required inline or in-tank without interruption to service. The RADEL body plastics provide superior resilience to physical impact and high abrasion, while the high capacity KYNAR reference provides both chemical resistance and temperate resistance to 105°C with a high temperature option up to 150°C. Utilising our proprietary toughened glass the sensor is ideal for abrasive media as well as being capable of resisting acids or fluorides that may chemically attack the glass.
