|24.09.2003 - SM10 - Ball Valve With Integrated Sensor Connection|
|The SM10... is a full bore ball valve with an integrated sensor connection. This armature is an innovative solution for the installation and deinstallation of sensor and monitoring systems in pipes. It enables the exchange or cleaning of a sensor with minimum effort and only a very short interuption of the operation of the system. The sensor may be deinstalled when the ball valve is closed. In this case the pipe is closed on both sides of the sensor. This reduces maintenance time and cost. Venting of the pipe system will not be necessary anymore.|
If the sensor has to be removed for repair, the sensor connection can be closed by means of a screw cap, enabling the system to go into operation again. To ensure an exact position of the sensor, the ball valves may be equipped with distance pieces or arresting pins.
