Introducing AMETEK Land’s EXSH1 Flame-Proof Housings for Temperature Measuring Instruments

AMETEK Land, a leader in temperature measurement and thermal imaging solutions, presents the groundbreaking EXSH1 flame-proof housings. Specifically designed for the EX SPOT pyrometer range and LWIR-640 thermal imager, these housings offer unparalleled safety and reliability in hazardous areas.

Durable and Resilient Construction

Crafted from high-quality 316/316L stainless steel, the EXSH1 housings boast exceptional corrosion resistance. With a certified temperature range of -40 to +70 degrees Celsius (-40 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit), these enclosures are built to withstand the most demanding conditions.

Uncompromised Protection and Versatility

Featuring IP66 and IP68 ingress protection, the EXSH1 housings offer unrivaled defense against dust, water immersion, and high-pressure water jets. Their robust construction makes them suitable for a wide range of applications, even in environments with explosive mixtures.

Clear Field of View and Hazard Compatibility

The gridless design of the housing ensures an unobstructed field of view, providing accurate and unimpeded measurements. Certified for use in areas with both dust and gas hazards, the EXSH1 enclosure eliminates the need for purge air, enhancing safety and convenience.

EX SPOT Housing: Revolutionizing Temperature Measurements

The EXSH1 EX SPOT housing is specifically designed to complement the EX SPOT range. These high-performance pyrometers enable fixed, non-contact, infrared spot temperature measurements. With various operating wavelengths, temperature ranges, and process requirements, the EX SPOT pyrometers excel in continuous annealing lines, semiconductor growth, and the hydrocarbon processing and chemical industries.

LWIR Housing: Advanced Thermal Imaging Capabilities

The EXSH1 LWIR housing is tailored for the LWIR-640 thermal imager, offering precise measurements from -20 to 1000 degrees Celsius (-4 to 1832 degrees Fahrenheit) across three ranges. This long-wavelength instrument, equipped with a selection of optics and lenses, delivers live true-temperature images at an impressive 60 frames per second. It is ideal for critical applications such as flare stack monitoring, vessel monitoring, and storage pile monitoring in the hydrocarbon processing and chemical industries.

Compliance and Simplified Specifications

With ATEX, IECEx, and UKEX certifications, the EXSH1 housings adhere to multiple international standards, ensuring global compatibility. This streamlines the specification process, making it easier for customers worldwide to incorporate these housings into their applications.

Complete Your Setup with Accessories

A comprehensive range of accessories is available for the EXSH1 housings, including versatile mounting brackets with pan and tilt adjustment, a sun shield for outdoor use, and a spoolpiece adaptor. The LWIR housing offers an environmental protection tube specifically designed for flare stack applications. For the EX SPOT housing, additional accessories such as purges and a vertical mounting stand are available.

Derek Stuart, Product Manager at AMETEK Land, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “The EXSH1 housing opens up exciting opportunities for customers in various industries, including hydrocarbons and semiconductors, to leverage the accuracy and reliability of AMETEK Land’s thermometers and thermal imagers.”
