APG RP Explosion Proof Resistive Float Level Transmitter Hazardous Location and RPE General Use Resistive-Chain Probe Level Sensors are designed for use in the chemical, oil, shipping, food processing, waste treatment, and many other industries. Each RP is manufactured to the user’s specifications, making it fit to work precisely according to the application requirements.
Float level probe for small tanks. Every bit as durable as it’s bigger brother, the RPM, the RP is designed for smaller tanks, up to 8 ft. (RPX) or 12.75 ft. (RPE) in height.
APG RP Explosion Proof Features
- Continuous level indication
- Durable float matched to liquid specific gravity
- Resistive chain or loop powered 4-20 mA output
- RPX hazardous location approvals – Explosion proof, Intrinsically safe, Non-incendive
The RP level probe is fully customizable. From stem, or probe, length to float size and specific gravity, the RP level float will be tailored to your exact application needs.
This float level sensor is installed in some of the toughest applications in the world. The RP probe features superior quality, and high chemical compatibility to endure almost any level measurement application.
The RP probe makes level control easy. With simple “float-goes-up, float-goes-down” operation, this liquid level probe is far less prone to interruptions in performance or accuracy.
