Operating fluids - caution

The ICS100 has been tested for use in mineral oils only.
We do not recommend this sensor for use:-

  • In systems containing water based fluids (e.g. water glycol)
  • In systems containing oil with zinc additives present
  • Where system filtration allows particles greater than 10 microns in size

Information provided on product applications should be used by customers for guidance only. Customers should satisfy themselves of the actual performance requirements and subsequently the suitability for any particular design application and the environment in which the ICS100 is to be used. If you have any doubt about the content, cleanliness or filtration levels of your fluid, we recommend the use of the Penny+Giles contactless in-cylinder transducer range - see  product details on the ICT series.
