SF Series Pump Seal Failure Relays are designed to monitor the shaft seals of submersible pumps. A resistive-measuring probe is installed in the pump seal cavity. With input voltage applied, the LED is Green ON. If the seal starts to leak, contaminating fluid enters the seal cavity, which lowers the resistance between the internal probe & the common connection. When the resistance drops below the user-adjustable sensitivity set-point of the relay, the output relay energizes & the LED turns Red ON. The relay output can be used to give an alarm indication of a leaking seal. These products will automatically reset when the fault condition clears. Probes are pulsed with a DC voltage to prevent electroplating.
