SYRACUSE, N.Y. â€šÃ¢â‚¬â€œ Cooper Crouse-Hinds has developed a smart, more user-friendly version of its Secondary Process Seal Assembly. Designed to prevent the passage of pressurized gases through conduit, cables and conductors, the new and improved Secondary Process Seal provides increased protection over the original, plus a new Rupture Indication Sensor that provides an immediate notification of a potentially explosive seal rupture.
The Rupture Indication Sensor saves time and labor costs, as it is able to quickly sense the buildup of pressure inside the fitting. The sensor provides immediate notification of a primary seal rupture, allowing maintenance personnel to quickly address the problem and isolate safety concerns. The sensor opens at 60 psi, and its stainless steel construction provides superior corrosion resistance and reliability.
The enhanced, user-friendly design of the new Secondary Process Seal has a number of convenient features. Most notably, the simplified design reduces the time associated with installation, decreases maintenance costs and reduces facility downtime. Plus, the integrated packaging contains all the necessary components for a seamless installation, without the hassle of pouring seals.
â€šÃ¢â‚¬Å“As a leader in explosionproof technology, Cooper Crouse-Hinds is committed to developing innovative products and solutions to the global marketplace,â€šÃ¢â‚¬Â said Dave Holloway, General Manager, Productivity Solutions at Cooper Crouse-Hinds. â€šÃ¢â‚¬Å“The Secondary Process Seal works to increase workplace safety while decreasing labor and potential downtime. With its simplified, user-friendly design, it truly is a one-of-a-kind solution.â€šÃ¢â‚¬Â
The Secondary Process Seal contains an explosionproof drain that allows for the safe release of gas, vapor or liquid from the electrical system, and meets or exceeds all ANSI/ISA/CEC/NEC requirements for a secondary process seal. With protection from pressurized fluids, gases and vapors to 1500 psi, it protects people and property in even the most volatile conditions.
Applications for the Secondary Process Seal include any facility with high pressure vessels containing explosive or combustible fluids, vapors and gases. These include oil and gas distribution and storage, petroleum refining, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, air separation and handling, and various military facilities.
The Secondary Process Seal with Rupture Sensor by Cooper Crouse-Hinds is the next step in their commitment to ESP (Enhancing Safety & Productivity). The goal behind ESP is to develop smarter, more powerful solutions that enhance safety and productivity. This promise is what drives Cooper Crouse-Hinds to continually develop products that anticipate customer needs and that work to achieve the goal of eventually making danger in the workplace obsolete.
