ST3 Positive Forced Air Enclosure

ST3-PFA-ENC :

Positive forced air environmental enclosure for SpectraTrend HT sensor head. This enclosure uses positive forced air to provide additional cooling in environments over 50°C and below 75°C, as well as protection of the lens system from contaminants such as dust, moisture and outgassing. Customer supplied factory air required. System includes enclosure, mounting plate, and mounting hardware.

 

ST3 Positive Forced Air Enc. W/Vortex

ST3-PFA-ENC-VTX:

Positive forced air enclosure for SpectraTrend HT sensor head. This enclosure uses a vortex cooler to provide additional cooling in environments over 50C and under 80C as well as protection of the lens system from contaminants such as dust, moisture and outgassing. Customer supplied factory air of at least 60 psi is required. System includes enclosure, mounting plate, and mounting hardware.

 

ST3 SS Sensor Enclosure W/O Vortex

ST3-SS-ENC:

Provides a stainless steel enclosure for the SpectraTrend HT Sensor head without a vortex cooler. This enclosure is used when the sensor is mounted in a location that does not require cooling (below 50 C) and material exposed over a production line to be stainless steel. Specifically designed for food and bio-pharma applications. Delivery: 5 weeks
