Symaga, a Spanish family-owned business specialized in designing, manufacturing and marketing of galvanized steel silos, starts the production of a brand new membrane sensor.
The technical project, carried out after several months of research, has achieved an optimization from previous membrane sensors, with an increased cost-competitiveness and safety for the sensor.
“The new sensor is designed under norm EN 60079-0, EN 60079-31 and with Directive 2014/34 / EU, that guarantees a safe use in explosive atmospheres that occur inside of the silo due to combustible dust occurrences,” the company said in its press release. “The SY-SM1 sensor is ATEX ZONE 20 certified, the zone with the highest explosion risk, and ATEX Zone 21. To guarantee safety for our team in manufacturing, SYMAGA has assumed the reference standard for the manufacture of ATEX equipment, UNE EN ISO / IEC 80079-34 under its quality system.”
One of the main advantages of the new membrane sensor is its integration of a regulation column, which allows for sensitivity adjustment. Another advantage is its easy assembly, with the sensor adapting perfectly to the wavy shape of our silos’ body sheets, and it can also be installed in the hopper. “We especially recommend it to detect the minimum level in powdery and granular products with easy flow and with a specific weight between 300 and 2500 kg / m³.” Symaga said. The new SY-SM1 membrane sensor is part of the 2020 Product Development Plan, which highlights Symaga's continuous R&D work to improve storage solutions.
