TD Housing Splice Assembly

TD Housing Splice Assembly The TD Housing Splice Assembly (Part No. 9080-0055) makes it easy to utilize retired device pairs located in an existing 5- or 10-bank transducer housing when installing a System Studies Manifold Monitoring Assembly. The housing mounts directly onto the transducer housing and accepts the 3/8" conductor pair tubing attached to the High Resolution Transducer's wire cover assembly. In addition to the 3/8" tubing fitting, the splice assembly is equipped with a tank valve that can be used for flash testing after device wiring and installation procedures have been completed. The mounting gasket supplied with the assembly includes a center cutout for access to the monitoring pair. It also serves to ensure a leak-free connection to the TD housing.

The splice assembly was designed for situations where a 6,000 foot air pipe manifold spacing design is being converted to a 3,000 foot design. This design conversion requires the removal of existing midpoint pressure transducers and the installation of a Manifold Monitoring Assembly at the midpoint location. Consequently, there is an abundance of available, pre-wired transducer pairs in the housing.

In a typical installation the monitored manifold's flow tranducer pair (blue, blue/white) would be connected to the working pair in transducer housing slot #1. If the Manifold Monitoring Assembly is equipped with a High Resolution Dual (pressure/flow) Transducer, a second TD Housing Splice Assembly will be required in the slot #2 position. The pressure device pair (orange, orange/white) would be wired to the working pair in slot #2. For the dual transducer installation, System Studies provides the Pair Splitter "Y" Connector (Part No. 9080-0085) shown below. The splitter makes it possible to separate the two transducer pairs, insert them into two lengths of 3/8" tubing and connect them to the splice assemblies at the housing.

Pair Splitter Y Connector The Pair Splitter "Y" Connector is supplied with two pulling wires that make it possible to route the transducer pairs through the fitting without having to disasemble it.
