HANSFORD Sensors showcased its latest vibration monitoring products at the Maintec 2013 exhibition in Birmingham.
Among new products on show were, for the first time in the UK, the HS-109 Triaxial accelerometer that allows three axes to be monitored simultaneously as well as a new version of its spot facing tool, which has been re-engineered to extend its operating life.
The HS-109 can be used either offline or as a permanently mounted sensor. It is supplied with an IP67 stainless steel housing as standard, is available with an M12 connector and can be configured at different levels of sensitivity, for use in a diverse range of applications, at operating temperatures from -55 to +140ºC.
With its ability to read three axes simultaneously, the HS-109 can save considerable time in both set-up and operation.
The spot facing tool, supplied as part of a spot facing installation kit, features a specially designed long-life tungsten tip. Each kit allows maintenance engineers to install vibration sensors quickly and easily and includes tapping drill, taps, tap wrench and spot facing tool, in a robust carrying case. Three versions of the kit are available for ¼, M6 and M8 mounting threads.
Hansford also used Maintec to promote its range of industrial accelerometers, which includes standard sensors, for use with all rotating and reciprocating equipment, plus submersible and ATEX-approved and sensors for specialised applications, multi-sensor switch boxes, vibration sensor modules, portable vibration meters and condition monitoring protection systems.
