Here's how some of our customers used this product.
Preventing Basement Flooding
The Background: Our customer is a university maintenance department seeking a means of removing water from basement storage and laboratory facilities in case of flooding such as if the sprinkler system is activated.
The Problem: The storage and laboratory facilities contain a variety of radioactive and poisonous/corrosive substances. Should flooding reach those substances it would create a dangerous situation and a costly clean-up.
The Solution: We recommended the Rosemount 5408 radar level transmitter with SIS certification. The 5408 can detect rising flood waters and activate pumps to remove the water before the dangerous substances are exposed. The 5408 includes an analog output that could be connected to the customer’s DCS as well as PTFE or PEEK seals with chemically-resistant O-rings. It also meets the customer’s need for SIL2/SIL3 certification.
