ALERT - IF YOUR GENERATOR WAS PURCHASED BEFORE 2015, YOU NEED THIS UPGRADE.

PNEUMATIC WATER LEVEL CONTROLS AND SPARE PARTS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND AS OF 31 MARCH 202, GENERATORS WITHOUT THIS UPGRADE ARE NO LONGER TECHNICALLY SUPPORTED.

UPGRADE TODAY!

Water Temperature Controls Upgrade

Benefits of Upgrade:

  • Reduced maintenance
  • Avoidance of troubleshooting Pneumatic System
  • Back up during chemical acetylene supply interruptions

Cost of Not:

Failure of your existing system – this is not a stocked item so extended down-time will be incurred.

Rexarc now offers advanced generator water/temperature controls systems for its Model ATX and AX acetylene generators. These systems help control temperature/water so that the acetylene plant operates efficiently at low load. Rexarc’s advanced temperature control systems are designed to eliminate various issues associated with traditional air-driven controls. Rexarc’s advanced temperature control systems can be easily integrated with the acetylene generators temperature control system.

Upgrade Functionality Overview

The following overview suggests why our advanced water/temperature controls systems can be an advantage to any acetylene plant:

    • Ensures Proper Functioning: When the temperature rises to a pre-set point, a solenoid gets activated, and starts adding water to the generator. Also, water is added when the generator screwfeeds are functioning. Water addition helps keep temperature in control, and prevents carbide addition too.

 

    • Temperature Alarm: This control is equipped with electrical/mechanical temperature probe. When the generator temperature rises to the set point, the alarm produces sound alerts.

 

  • High and Low Water Level Alarm: When water level drops below than the set point, the alarm gets activated, and closes the drain valve of the generator. Also, the alarm produces a sound on activation. At high water level, the actuated ball valve for the drain is opened, and the actuated ball valve for water control is closed.

Upgrade Kit Contents

Each upgrade kit includes the following:

  • Actuated Ball Valve: This is used for water inlet and draining.
  • Electronic Operated Controls: These are replacements for air-operated controls on pre-mounted sub-panel. Our electronic operated controls allow easy installation.
  • Proximity Switches: These switches are used to replace flappers and orifices.
  • Relays: The relays are replacements for traditional screwfeed safety interlock switches.
  • Stainless Steel Tubing: The tubing is used to connect solenoids to actuated ball valves.
  • Control Panel: It can be easily installed in the plant’s electrical room.
  • Wiring Diagrams: A conventional pictorial representation of the upgrade circuit.
