Temperature Measurement


ATEX approved thermal imager

September 2009 Temperature Measurement

Infrared programmes are now able to expand in South Africa with the introduction of Hawk IR’s ATEX certified thermal imager system. The new Ex CAM allows increased coverage, efficiency and worker and plant safety. The product is the result of intensive research and development aimed at facilitating infrared inspections within explosive atmospheres safely and in accordance with legal requirements. High strength materials and integral redundant safety systems certified to the latest ATEX requirements by DNV ensure maximum safety for employees and the facility.

The Dupl-Ex safety protection systems built into the Ex CAM deliver dual redundant pressure protection and intrinsic safety in one neat package. Certified by DNV to ATEX 2 IIG T4 for use within Zone 1 areas Ex CAM Professional does not require hot work permits and supplementary safety systems for operation.

The availability of Ex CAM eliminates the need for delicate safe area IR instruments alongside permits and gas detectors within the explosive environments – there is a safe alternative available.

Users already in possession of an infrared camera but requiring an ATEX certified unit are invited to contact R&C Instrumentation to discuss the possibility of trading-in the old camera towards the purchase of a new explosive atmosphere Ex CAM Professional.
