This week, we start the production of a brand new membrane sensor. The technical project, carried out after several months of research, has achieved an optimization from previous membrane sensors, with an increased cost-competitiveness and safety for the sensor. The new sensor isdesignedundernorm EN 60079-0, EN 60079-31 and withDirective 2014/34 / EU, that guarantees a safe use in explosive atmospheres that occur inside of the silo due to combustible dust occurrences.
The SY-SM1 sensor is ATEX ZONE 20 certified, the zone with the highest explosion risk, and ATEX Zone 21. To guarantee safety for our team in manufacturing, SYMAGA has assumed the reference standard for the manufacture of ATEX equipment, UNE EN ISO / IEC 80079-34 under its quality system.
One of the main advantages of the new membrane sensor is its integration of a regulation column, which allows for sensitivity adjustment. Another advantage is its easy assembly, with the sensor adapting perfectly to the wavy shape of our silos’ body sheets, and it can also be installed in the hopper.
