The most comprehensive range of explosion-proof measuring devices

Flammable and potentially explosive substances such as gases, vapors, mists and dusts occur in many areas of the chemical and petrochemical industry. Ignition of these substances can lead to severe personal injury and damage to property.Devices used in these areas must not cause any sources of ignition. Compliance with globally standardized types of protection ensures that no ignition sources arise during normal operation or when internal device failures occur.

Unique possibilities

Endress+Hauser offer an extensive range of explosion-proof measuring devices as well as attractive services. The range of services for flow, level, pressure, temperature, and analysis measurements opens up application areas in gases and dusts.The measuring devices are certified for the most critical gas groups and temperatures. Intrinsically safe two-wire devices are available for the first time for all of the main measurement methods in the area of flow measuring technology.
