New Retractable pH Sensor for Tough Industrial Applications


Warminster, PA, April 02, 2009 - ABB has announced the release of the Endura TBX587 Retractable pH sensor. Responding to customer requests, the Endura TBX587 targets 1-inch NPT process connections found in sample lines in refineries, chemical plants, and other industrial applications.


The Endura TBX587 incorporates many innovative design elements into one convenient pH measurement system. The temperature compensation element has been moved to the tip of the sensor to provide response times up to 6x faster then conventional gel-filled pH sensors. An optional IP68 Vario Pin style cable connector simplifies sensor replacement without complicated wiring or terminal strips. The mechanical design of the Endura TBX587 includes a large T style handle to aid in insertion and retraction into pressurized process pipelines.


The new pH sensor is based on ABBs highly successful solid state, Next Step Reference design. The Next Step Reference is well designed to withstand chemical poisoning and build-up often found in strong chemical processes and slurries. 316 Stainless hardware is standard with the Endura TBX587 with options for Hastelloy and Titanium metallic fittings.


This product, combined with the popular ABB TB(X)557 low pressure retractable sensor, TB(X)564 high pressure retractable sensor, and the TB18 Safe-T-Clean valve allows ABB to address nearly any insertion style pH sensor installation.
