Whenever there is a risk of the return condensate being contaminated with foreign matter, condensate monitoring in accordance with EN 12952/3 is essential. There are two types of foreign matter: soluble and solids.
Temperature-compensated conductivity monitoring is used to detect dissolved solids. In combination with the LRS 1-7 switch, the LRG 16-9 electrode detects even minimal contamination of the condensate by alkalis and acids.
For the detection of solids in the form of oil and turbidity, GESTRA offers the OR 52 - a system that uses directly transmitted light to compare light scattered by particles in the liquid and so detect even tiny amounts of contamination. False alarms are reduced to a minimum, and system malfunctions are detected automatically.
