HBX-DX, HBX-OVC, HBCP - Quality Sensors

HB Quality Sensor

The HBX is a revolutionary, patent-pending, sensor technology and it is the first sensor in the world capable of measuring the relationship between vapor and liquid a refrigeration system. The sensor measures the degree of dryness, “X”, of the vapor in the suction lines, and the value is converted into a 4-20 mA analog signal corresponding to “X”. The measuring range for HBX-OVC is X = 0.6…0.9 and the measuring range for the HBX-DX is X = 0.85…1.05.

The sensor is available in two variants, "Rod Style” for installation in a pipe elbow and “In-line” for welding into the suction pipe.

The sensor offers very precise measurements and provides instant read-outs of the gas quality, making it useable in most evaporators (plate, pipe, and air evaporators).

The sensor’s microprocessor also functions as a controller, enabling the direct control of a modulating motor valve such as the MVS or PEV, thereby bypassing the external controller or the PLC. The controller can be set up with all the parameters that are necessary for regulating a modulating motor valve or a stepper motor valve. The sensor is available with a cable for direct supply to and control of the motor valve, or as a sensor where the signal is sent to the external controller/PLC.
