Drop Tube for in-tank submersion
Turtle Tough's Drop Tube is an excellent alternative to in-tank immersion rods for applications that require submersion depths greater than 3 metres. Turtle Tough Drop Tube allows a sensor to be “dropped” directly in a tank without attachments. Only sensors with back-end cable protection (CP option) should be used in this application to provide the required cable strength for retrieving the sensor from the tube. The guide tube holds the sensor in position at the desired depth (standard depth is 5m) and does not allow the sensor to drift aimlessly in the process at the risk of getting caught on agitators or internal tank components. This design saves lifting the immersion rod from the tank and allows shorter cable runs on the sensor. You can clean and calibrate by just pulling the sensor up from the tube. No winching of the immersion rod out of the tank is necessary, as the drop tube significantly improves the ease, safety and time spent on the cleaning and calibration of the sensor with the sensor at hand.
IMPORTANT: To ensure the compatibility of a sensor with your application, you should consider several elements. (sensor cable length, sensor configuration, waterproofing back-end type and length of PCV hose at the end of the sensor).
