The shipbuilding industry places great demands on measurement and control technology. Products for this industry have to be safe, robust, and impervious. JUMO has many years of experience in this area so that it can offer reliable technology with the necessary approvals.
Measurement and control technology in the shipbuilding industry must not only be impervious to salty sea air. Strong vibrations, impacts, electrical disturbances, fluctuating temperatures, and dust also require high resilience of the implemented devices. For these requirements JUMO offers a variety of products that have been especially designed for use in water with high salt content and potentially explosive areas.
JUMO has the JUMO MAERA S29 SW level probe in its product range for use in ballast water tanks. The titanium version and the ATEX approval allow the level probe to be deployed in critical areas. Among other uses the level probe is suited for level measurement in anti-heeling systems or for highly viscous media.
Another product that is suited for hydrostatic level measurement on ships is the JUMO dTRANS p20 pressure transmitter. Its additional ATEX approval makes it predestined for use in LNG tanks. The HART interface enables the configuration of different parameters, such as scaling the measuring range, to be made with ease.
The JUMO MIDAS S07 MA pressure transmitter was also especially developed for the shipbuilding industry. The device can be implemented in harsh conditions due to its compact design and the robust stainless steel version.
JUMO also offers products for shipbuilding from the control and automation technology field. The DICON touch is a process and program controller that can acquire different physical measured values with high precision. These include the temperature in the fresh water generator, cooling water, lubricating oil, or steam pressure. Due to different output variants the actuators can be controlled in an analog or digital manner directly in the device.
The JUMO mTRON T measurement, control, and automation system is suited for demanding automation solutions with many measurands and signal sources. Its scalability enables individual adaptation to a particular task. Among other things the device can be used for the temperature increase of heavy fuels, temperature control in cabins, or plant monitoring.
Additional products for shipbuilding – such as screw-in RTD temperature probes, safety temperature limiters, or precision pressure switches – are introduced in the industry area of the JUMO website (http://www.jumo.de/en_DE/industry/ship-building/index.html).
