The Turtle Tough SMART-3 direct smart sensor is one tough sensor. Designed specifically to resist high velocity solids and high levels of abrasion this sensor provides unprecedented periods of survival in applications where most of our competitors literally disintegrate.
The Turtle Tough SMART-3 direct smart sensor is extremely versatile for a variety of installation methods. By utilizing?a double thickness 3/4″ x 1″ RADEL body, it is suitable for both immersion, submersion and valve retractable installation types. ?The RADEL body material offers excellent resistance to abrasion at an economical price, while a fast response TC is built in close to the sensing element for superior calibration accuracy in all installation types.
The real secret to this sensor is the glass. Known for its fragility, the glass sensing element is often the weakest link in sensors having to cope with high velocity solids and slurry abrasion.? Our unique and proprietary glass formulation is arguably the strongest pH glass bulb in the world and is capable of withstanding direct impact from high velocity slurries. We like to think it is ‘virtually’ unbreakable for it’s intended use.
Fouling is another common problem with many brands of sensors, however our open geometry, coating resistant materials and our preference for high velocity (to keep the sensor clean) maintain optimal performance of the sensor within the sensibilities of a standard cleaning regime.
