Application

In the ammonia reactor, nitrogen reacts with hydrogen to form ammonia. The temperature in the reactor can be anywhere up to 500 °C at pressures of 200 bar. To monitor the system pressure, the measurement itself does not take place in the interior of the reactor, but in the cooler inlet pipe of the reactor.

Your benefit

Reliable
Special sealing concept prevents diffusion by the ammonia
Cost effective
Maintenance-free operation even at high temperatures and pressures
User friendly
Simple installation and commissioning
