Elfab Launches first ATEX-approved Wireless Burst Detection System

October 24, 2011 - Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Pressure relief specialist Elfab has launched the industry’s first ATEX-approved burst detection system, Radio-Tel™. The new system combines the latest wireless technology with Elfab’s proven non-invasive detection system, Flo-Tel™+.

Suitable for the largest sites, Radio-Tel™ features real-time process monitoring of disc status and temperature. Situated in close proximity to the rupture disc, Radio-Tel™’s transmitters plug easily into the Flo-Tel™+. This eliminates the time-consuming and expensive wiring work necessary with all other detection systems.

The transmitters send a health message to the receiver every minute. When the transmitter detects that a disc has operated, the message changes to an alert signal.

Elfab has designed Radio-Tel™ to deliver maximum flexibility to its customers. Each transmitter emits a unique identification code with each health message, providing end-users with control over individual units. The system’s PC-compatible software indicates disc status, enabling customers to easily monitor their processes from the control room. The software allows for detailed monitoring of each device, including exact location, process temperature, battery life and signal strength. Additionally, Radio-Tel™ can be hardwired to deliver maximum control over individual processes, or to trigger a beacon or siren in the case of a burst detection occurring.

Radio-Tel™’s fail-safe receiver module features optimal outputs and is pre-set for both hardwiring and software monitoring. The module can receive signals from a distance of up to 0.5km; for larger sites, harsh operating environments or where buildings and structures weaken signals, repeater aerials are recommended.

Suitable for use in even the harshest of operating conditions, all Radio-Tel™ parts have at least an IP65 rating, with the transmitters being fully ATEX Zone 0 approved.
