Applications by industry
Controlled or modified atmospheres can considerably increase the storage life of certain fruit and vegetable cargoes. Slowing down their metabolic rate delays the natural ripening of the produce without effecting its flavour and eating quality.
SST’s OXY-COMM Oxygen Sensor is designed to prolong the life of perishable food within refrigerated, controlled and modified atmospheres by accurately measuring the oxygen concentration.
In many applications it is critical to know the presence or absence of liquid. An early indication helps to prevent the loss of critical fluids, damage to equipment, costly service interruption and system downtime. Thousands of applications are at risk of fluid ingress causing detrimental effects to their systems or services.
An industry proven solution to these problems is SST’s affordable range of leak detection liquid level switches that prevent the high cost of leaking liquids.
SST’s zirconium dioxide oxygen sensors can help customers optimise their boiler combustion efficiency within the oil, coal, gas and biomass boiler market.
The oxygen to fuel ratio effects boiler efficiency. Too little oxygen results in incomplete combustion creating harmful emissions. Setting the boiler to burn with excess oxygen is the normal solution to reducing emissions.
SST initiated communication between inert gas system manufacturers for the marine industry, as they use a similar process to OBIGGS (On-Board Inert Gas Generation Systems), in order to keep the atmosphere within non-explosive limits.
To do this, it is necessary to check and control the oxygen and hydrocarbon gas content in the fuel and cargo tanks using SST’s highly reliable zirconium dioxide oxygen sensors.
