For applications in which extremely high temperature operation is needed, Wilcoxon offers the HT series of accelerometers. Dryer sections of a paper machine regularly create conditions up to 150º C. Vibration monitoring sensors must be capable of operating continuously in hot environments without degradation. HT series sensors are built with extended range components that are manufactured to withstand high temperatures for long periods of time without failing.
The top-exit HT780A 100 mV/g broadband sensor operates at high temperatures for monitoring machine vibration on a wide range of rotating equipment such as motors, pumps, fans, compressors, turbines and generators. Its compact size allows the sensor to be mounted in tight areas not accessible by full sized sensors. The 316L stainless steel case provides rugged durability for most extreme environments. The sensing element is housed in a case-isolated Faraday shield, providing maximum protection from ground loops and RF interference.
