Adaptors for Foreign Valves
Honeywell provides adaptors and storage tubes for HERMetic gauges and samplers for connection on already installed non-Honeywell valves onboard. With these, users can install gauges and samplers on any vessel already equipped with ball valves.
Portable level gauging and sampling equipment has to be connected to a ball valve installed on top of each tank. These valves are installed at the ship building stage and are difficult to remove/ exchange when the vessel is already in operation. HERMetic portable equipment can be fitted with special adaptors for installation on non-Honeywell valves, allowing proper functioning of the gauging or sampling system.
The following adaptors are available to users:
- TS 55000: Used to connect all HERMetic units with 1-inch quick connect coupling to valves with UNF 2 1/2 inch connection.
- TS 55115: Used to connect all HERMetic units with 2-inch quick connector to valves with UNF 2 1/2 inch connection
How Does It Work?
In order to match the existing tank tables, it is very important to know the exact type of valves installed onboard the vessel and the reference height of the reading index. The portable equipment, fitted with the correct storage tube, will have the same reading level without the need of reading index level compensation. When a unit is fitted with such connection possibility, it is necessary to have a separate grounding strap for intrinsic safety compliance.
What Problems Does It Solve?
The special storage tube and adaptors permit easy connection on foreign valves without the need to change already installed ball valves onboard and without any correction of the tank tables.
