ADM Instrument Engineering introduces a new range of accelerometers
designed specifically for monitoring vibration in hazardous operating environments.
Vibration monitoring is a critical aspect of ensuring reliability of
machinery in mining and mineral extraction industries. However, the operating
conditions impose significant additional burdens on the sensors. For any
equipment to operate reliably in a mine or similar harsh environment, it must
be built robustly; sensors, connectors and cabling used for monitoring should therefore
be capable of operating continuously while withstanding the harsh ambient
Typical conditions in mining environments include high levels of
moisture containing corrosive dissolved electrolytes, and high shock levels
from the impact of flying debris caused by cutting, crushing and drilling
Since mines are designated as hazardous areas, the operating equipment is
required to be intrinsically safe and certified for use in Group I hazardous
Monitran’s IECEx certified accelerometers are specifically designed as the
perfect plant and equipment monitoring solution for hazardous areas.
Monitran’s range of Group I hazardous area approved analysis
sensors and monitoring sensors includes the specially designed
side-entry versions such as the MTN-1100IS series, which requires less headroom
and offers streamlined cable routing from the sensor.
