ElMetro-Flomac - a reliable flowmeter for severe operating conditions
ElMetro company has completed certification on compliance to requirements of GOST 14254-2015 (“IP67”) for multiparameter Coriolis flowmeters ElMetro-Flomac.
Ingress protection (International Protection or shortly IP) of all flowmeter constructional parts against the intrusion of solid objects, dust and water now corresponds to IP67, view Pic. 1 below.
Code description IP (6)1 (7)2:
IP - International Protection;
The first digit defines enclosure protection of people from access to hazardous parts preventing or restricting the intrusion of any body parts or objects that are in human hands into the enclosure and of equipment from the intrusion of external solid objects into the enclosure.
ElMetro-Flomac flowmeter is provided with the highest protection degree “6” which ensures its safe operation by the personnel. Flowmeter enclosure provides protection from access to hazardous parts by a back of the hand, finger, instrument or a wire. Enclosure fully protects the flowmeter from dust which significantly prolongs its lifetime and prevents it from random failures.
The second digit defines protection degree of equipment from harmful effects of water. Flowmeter enclosure with code “7” protects it from water impact during short-term dipping to a depth of 1 meter.
Due to a new “IP67” protection degree flowmeter ElMetro-Flomac could be operated in severe operating conditions where other similar devices cannot be applied.
