Automation Products Group (APG) is one of many great manufacturers that partner with Durham Instruments to make their innovative test and measurement solutions available to Canadian businesses. A key example of APG’s portfolio is the 1502 HU Hammer Union pressure transmitter. This unique instrument is designed for the toughest applications in the rugged, challenging work environments of land-based and offshore drilling installations, such as mud logging and measurement while drilling.
The market’s highest-quality HU transmitter
The 1502 HU is the highest-quality Hammer Union pressure transmitter on the industrial market, and many oil and gas operations are switching to it these days. APG uses a NACE-compliant nickel alloy and welded construction for the toughest drilling and production tasks in this sector. Its many advantages include ranges up to 15,000 pounds per square inch, a 1502 fitting, high shock and vibration resistance, and plus or minus ¼ per cent accuracy of full scale.
This is a versatile unit that suits many other industries besides oil and gas. Durham Instruments deems it suitable for use in general manufacturing, aerospace, automation, food processing, forestry, education, the medical field, the military, mining, packaging, power generation, alternative energy, transportation, and research and development.
This Hammer Union pressure transmitter has an output of 4-20 mA or zero to five VDC, and it meets strict international safety standards, including those of CSA Group, ATEX, and IECEx. Other notable features:
- Short lead times: As little as two weeks;
- Wide top access: For ease of use;
- Drain holes: For leak prevention and saving the connector;
- Welded construction: Built to withstand high vibration, and proven in on-the-field applications like measurement while drilling;
- Hazardous-location certifications: Includes Class 1, Division 1 Groups C and D and Class 1, Zone 0; and
- Optional halo cage: The toughest cage design available.
A number of model configuration options are available from APG, each one consisting of output, pressure range, electrical connection, fitting, and enclosure. There are 16 different electrical connections from which to choose, two fittings, and three enclosures, to suit any unique application.
