The Turtle Tough TOUGH4 is one tough sensor.
This sensor is designed to dry out making it perfect for remote monitoring applications where the sensor will be intermittently exposed to liquid.
The propriety Turtle Tough reference is specially manufactured to enable dehydration and rehydration for continuous exposure to dry conditions with only intermittent periods of wetness. Ideal for applications that have batch runs, inconsistent or restricted flows. This makes it suitable for remote access areas where sensors may unknowingly dry out.
The unique back-end assembly allows sealing to be run down the length of the cable; completely isolating it from the process media and eliminating the risk of ingress or poisoning. This allows for very long life at deep submersion in even the most aggressive processes without needing to seal the sensor onto an immersion rod. The flexible cable sealing actually allows a sensor to be lowered into a tank or process directly by the cable itself, without any supporting structure. Turtle Tough have design unique and proprietary sensor guide tubes to facilitate this optional installation method, eliminating the need for heaving and cumbersome immersion rods.
The RADEL body plastics provide both impact and chemical resistance. Utilising our proprietary toughened glass the sensor is ideal for slurries and abrasive media as well as being capable of resisting acids or fluorides that may chemically attack the glass.
The Tough4 Dehydration Resistant pH Sensor is ideal for any applications where there are batch runs, limited flow process systems containing free sulphide species such as hydrogen sulphide gas (H2S), hydrogen sulphide (HS–) or sulphide ions (S2-). Any measurement where aggressive chemical cleaning is needed to remove fouling or low maintenance operation is required with minimal cleaning and recalibration.
This sensor is available with our digital smart sensor technology. This plug and play sensor has a quick connect fitting, eliminating the need for hard wiring to the analyser. Onboard sensor memory allows the storage of calibration data, analyser configurations and sensor service history. This allows the sensor to be conveniently maintained and calibrated off-site or in the laboratory and pre-programmed with calibration data and analyser configurations. This stored information automatically uploads to the analyser upon connection and eliminates the need for any interaction with the analyser, greatly simplifying the change-out of sensors. A service log stored on the sensors is ideal for maintenance and quality assurance records.
