GREAT FOR WINTER USE!
Kem-X keeps water out of the bourdon tube, eliminating damage caused by
frozen water in the bourdon tube.
on SPAN Gauges - must order with gauge
ranges from 30 to 5,000 psi
heavy metal, external isolators, which are often expensive and
media from entering the Bourdon tube of your gauge with SPAN's exclusive,
patented "Kem-X-Socket-Saver." Once the tube of the SPAN gauge has been
evacuated and filled with instrument oil, a special elastic "boot" is
inserted directly in the socket of the gauge and held in place by a
retaining ferrule. This combination isolates any media from the wetted parts
of the instrument. SPAN's Kem-X prevents freezing or corrosive chemicals
from harming your gauge.
When the gauge
is put in service and the media is pressured up inside the
"Kem-X-Socket-Saver", the diaphragm expands inside the socket to cause a
gauge reading, but the service media never enters the Bourdon tube. Give
your gauge the advantage of having a SPAN Kem-X-Socket-Saver.
Do not remove
"Kem-X-Socket-Saver" from the socket. Do not try to simulate
pressure on the Bourdon tube by inserting foreign objects into the isolator
or damage will result.
Due to the sensitive
nature of pressure gauges they are only warranted against defects in
materials and workmanship, until they are put into service.
