Magnetic sensor mounting fixtures can be used for mounting WT100/101 (clamp specific), WT200 and WT210 series sensors as an alternative sensor mounting solution to stud welding or clamping on pipes and vessels. Each fixture accommodates one sensor and it is fixed onto the pipe using only the pull forces provided by the magnets.

Important:

The underside of the fixtures facing the pipe will be profiled to match the outer diameter of the pipe or vessel onto which they are installed. Please ensure that the fixture size matches the pipe outer diameter.

Only use approved Permasense sensor mounting solutions to mount Permasense sensors.

Permasense products should be installed only by Permasense trained/certified technicians.

Tooling and consumables

1 X Bostik Idenden 40-297 silicone sealant C20 tube (enough for 120-150 installations).

1 X Cartridge Dispenser - 300ml single cartridge manual applicator (reusable).

Installation procedure

Warning. Set the torque wrench to 4Nm. Do not use standard torque settings nominally quoted to 8Nm to install sensors using this sensor mounting method.

1. On painted pipe-work, define where the sensor needs to go. Remove a circular patch of the coating about 25mm (1”) diameter to allow the waveguides to contact the pipe directly. If unpainted, ensure clean metal surface is in contact with the waveguides.

2. Ensure that the pipe surface on and around which the fixture is going to be installed is free from debris.

3. Remove the fixture from the box. Remove the locking pins and locking washers from the magnets and replace them with the handles. Insert the pins back and keep the locking washes as they will be needed at the final stage of installation.

4. Place the magnetic fixture along the axis of the pipe such that the cleaned patch is in the middle of the aperture of the fixture. Ensure there is good contact between the surface of the pipe and the surfaces of the magnets. The faces of the magnets are profiled to match the pipe diameter. See Figure 2.

Removal procedure

Warning. If the pipe is hot, the magnetic fixture will remain hot for some time after removal. Take necessary precautions to protect against burns.

1. Ensure that there is a safe place for the magnetic fixture to be moved to once it is removed from the pipe or vessel. This can be a heat resistant/metallic container.

2. If there is a sensor or a sensor with lanyard installed on the fixture, remove them.

3. The magnetic fixture weighs 8.5kg [18.75 lbs]. Ensure adequate measures have been taken to support its weight when removed.

4. Starting with the first magnet, fit the handle on it by removing the pin, lowering the handle onto the shaft and placing the pin back.

5. Push down on the handle then rotate counter-clockwise by 180°. This will deactivate the magnet.

6. If the handle does not rotate freely, excessive heat may have caused the mechanism to seize. Try again with a harder grip. If the handle still does not rotate then secure the fixture tightly with a lanyard and leave it in place. The fixture cannot be removed.

7. When the first magnet has been successfully deactivated, repeat the process for the other magnets.

8. The magnetic fixture is now free to be reinstalled. Please allow time for it to cool down if it was installed on a hot pipe or vessel before attempting to use it again.
