Model 596 Detachable Level Transmitter

Model 596 Detachable Level Transmitter

When you need to replace your wastewater level transmitter, you don’t have time to wait. Downtime is not an option. With Viatran’s new RapidShip program, the Model 596 Detachable Level Transmitter is available in as little as one 1 to 2 days, and in some cases can be shipped overnight.
The RapidShip program allows you to reduce your inventory costs, minimize your supply chain management effort, eradicate unexpected delays and/or line down situations resulting from peaks in demand.
The Detachable Level Transmitter allows for a quick swap of the sensor head without having to remove your entire cable run. Model 596 is a rugged transmitter that is ideal for higher viscosity media and is resistant to a wide variety of materials. Its semi-flush ceramic sensing face resists clogging and is easily cleaned, allowing it to be used without a cage.

This model can operate in pressure ranges from 0-32 in. w.c. to 0-335 ft. w.c. (or equivilent in meters or PSI )and an operating temperature range of -13° to 185° F (-25° to 85° C). Viatran also stocks six of the most popular polyurethane cable sizes in lengths up to 150 feet (46 meters). When ordering, please specify the range (depth) and cable length needed.
