Chesterton Connect™ Equipment Monitoring Sensor for Use in Hazardous Environments

Chesterton Connect™ equipment monitoring sensor is now available in a version certified for use in hazardous environments. The latest release of Chesterton’s IoT wireless monitoring product line is certified for use on equipment and structures in most hazardous environments dealing with high pressures, high temperatures, and flammable liquids. Rated for Class 1/Division 1 (gas, vapor environments) and Class 2/Division 1 (dust environments) and IP66 for outdoor use, the new Chesterton Connect Sensor can be used in operators’ most critical applications.

“’Intrinsic Safety’ is the electrical protection that allows the sensor to be used in hazardous areas with either dust or gases that can ignite,” explains Chesterton Product Manager Juan Cid. “The sensor contains safety features within electronics that prevent the sensor from becoming a source for ignition.

The Chesterton Connect™ sensor is easy-to-deploy and monitors rotating equipment such as pumps and heat exchangers, as well as structures such and tanks on a 24/7 basis for:

  • Equipment vibration
  • Equipment surface temperature
  • Process pressure
  • Process temperature

Uniquely, Chesterton Connect™ monitors process fluid conditions that impact mechanical seals, which are often the first component to exhibit signs of imminent equipment downtime.

The Connect sensor communicates with a mobile application via Bluetooth. The app supports multiple sensors to provide a comprehensive view of a plant’s equipment health to spot and fix issues before failure, often saving thousands in downtime. The app also alerts the user when equipment pre-set operating limits are exceeded. The collected data from multiple sensors can be exported to the Chesterton Connect™ Cloud platform to spot trends and compare data to avoid equipment downtime and troubleshoot difficult-to-solve issues.

Chesterton Connect sensors keep workers safe by allowing them to check remotely on conditions and performance. The new version also allows remote monitoring in hazardous areas, so plants save on maintenance time and avoid potential accidents.
