Flo-Tel+ is said to be the only non-invasive, fail-safe detection system on the market. Offering a wide range of benefits to customers in safety-critical environments, Flo- Tel+ can be either hardwired or used in conjunction with Elfab's ATEXapproved wireless detection system, Radio-Tel.
An IP66 rating makes Flo-Tel+ suitable for use in highly dusty environments and areas where shortterm flooding may occur.
Applications can now include FPSO units within the oil and gas industry.
At a time when zero emissions and quality standards are becoming increasingly important, Flo-Tel+ offers unprecedented advantages, from triggering alarms to shutting down a process, says the company.
