Dutch monitoring equipment manufacturer VPInstruments has introduced a new reliable and easy to use compression fitting and safety cable for all VPFlowCopes models of flowmeters.
The Delft-based company produces flowmeters that have to be inserted into pressurised systems.
With such meters, it is important that there is a clearly visible safety cable to keep the sensor secure, even when the compression fitting is not completely fixed.
The safety cable features an auto-break function, and like a safety belt in a car, the proprietary auto-break automatically locks the safety cable after it has been adjusted by the user.
It can only be adjusted intentionally by pushing the brake release, which is double secured.
Compared to the old safety cable, which had to be wrapped around the pipe, the auto-brake feature enhances safety and comfort.
