Natural Gas Company Employee Testimonial
Your Mag-Probe is a time saver. I work for a gas company and almost everything is explosion proof. To test a solenoid valve without your Mag-Probe tester we would have to open the explosion proof housing to check the voltage across the solenoid. This can be time consuming. With your probe we just hold it up against the solenoid and watch the LED light up when the solenoid is energized. We have been using them for years and what a time saver.
Bartol Mag-Probe Safe to Use in Explosive Environments
Understanding the value of intrinsically safe test equipment in the Oil and Natural Gas Industries is important for technicians safety. Bartol Research designed the Mag-Probe to be the most versatile solenoid valve and relay tester on the market today. One of our biggest concerns was developing the tester to be intrinsically safe so it could be used quickly to separate electrical from mechanical problems in seconds, without having any explosive issues. In most cases our Mag-Probe can make its test through a solenoid valve, relay, or contactor explosive shielding.
Bartol Mag-Probe Underwater Test
Solenoid valve testers that operate using interchangeable batteries are not intrinsically safe. They are at risk of corroding internal contact points rendering them useless to use when testing solenoid valves and relays in corrosive environments, and impossible to use underwater.
The Bartol Mag-Probe is a completely self contained test instrument allowing flexibility for use in conditions where interchangeable battery operated testers have a high failure rate. If you have ever used a flashlight with interchangeable batteries I’m sure you remember pounding on the flashlight to get it to work. This will never happen with the Mag-Probe because every connection is soldered and totally sealed, isolating the internal components.The Bartol Mag-Probe allows use in liquid, explosive or corrosive environments making it an intrinsically safe tool for technicians testing solenoid valves or relays on off shore oil rigs, natural gas operations, refineries or chemical processing plants. To make it easy when testing large contactors with overlapping magnetic fields we have included a white protective shield with the Mag-Probe. This protective shield can slide over the sensing tip of the Mag-Probe to de-sensitize it’s sensitivity. This will reduce the chance of detecting overlapping magnetic fields generated by large solenoid valves, or contactors, in close proximity of each other. The white shield can also be used when storing the Mag-Probe when not is use. Always store the Mag-Probe away from magnetic fields.
The following document was created by HSI Sensing and explains the manufacturing details of the Bartol Mag-Probe you will want to keep on file. The Mag-Probe is manufactured by HSI Sensing in Oklahoma. HSI Sensing is ISO 9001 and AS9100c Certified by TUV. Please refer to the following downloadable document before purchasing the Mag-Probe.
Mag-Probe can make a solenoid Valve Test in Extreme Weather Conditions. One of the biggest problems in working on solenoid valves with test equipment in cold environments is freezing meters and intermittent problems because of the weather. The Mag-Probe can separate mechanical form electrical problems in seconds in the most extreme weather conditions. Tested and works effectively from -80° F to +160° F.
