K-TEK recently announced a unique blend of technologies that reduces risk and increases the safety ratings of level measurement systems. The company now provides a complete safety level package that combines redundant systems, independent technologies and a SIL2-certified device. The end result is safer and more reliable products and processes for chemical plants, oil and gas refineries and power plants. According to the company, more specifically:
- AT200 high-accuracy transmitters are the only magnetostrictive level transmitters in the industry that are certified for operation in SIL2 environments. They help reduce risk at the process measurement level when implementing safety instrumented systems in process plant environments.
- Point level switches, such as TX thermal dispersion and resonator vibrating forks, offer an independent and redundant form of level detection. All of these can easily be integrated with the company's KM26 magnetic level gauge with simple extruded outlets.
- The MagWave dual-chamber level measurement system is designed around a unique dual-chamber enclosure that includes a magnetic level gauge for level indication based on the specific gravity of the process, and a guided wave radar transmitter for measurements based on dielectric constant.
