Made-in-The-USA, Hazardous Location Position Sensors Perform Safely In Presence of Flammable Gases or Vapors

Pennsauken, NJ, September 6, 2022…Newtek Sensor Solutions introduces a new line of Hazardous Location LVDTs (Linear Variable Differential Transformers) that operate safely and accurately in hazardous and explosive environments with the presence of flammable or ignitable gases and liquids such as those found in refining and petrochemical plants, pipelines, and oil and storage tanks.


Approved for used in Class 1, Zone 0 and Zone 2 locations, the NT-HL-750 series of LVDT Position Sensors are ideal for pipeline and LNG storage tank structuring monitoring and real-time position sensing of different valves in oil and gas fields, chemical process plants, gas turbines and oil refinery platforms and rigs.  These AC-operated sensors also are Intertek approved and hold an ETL mark that certifies its use in hazardous locations throughout North America.


Offering contactless and reliable position measurement, the NT-HL-750 series of Linear Position Sensors operate over measurement ranges from ±1.0 inch up to ±10.0 inches.  Other notable features include:

  • A ¾” hermetically sealed and a stainless-steel construction makes the sensors robust when operating in different environments.
  • Wide temperature operating ranges of -28ºC up to 150°C enable sensor use in applications with fluctuating temperatures such as chemical process plants, oil refineries and power plants.
  • A ½” NPT conduit fitting for easy installation and protection against environment conditions. (A hard conduit is provided for HAZLOC areas).
  • A thru-bore construction that simplifies mechanical support, core guidance and cleaning of contaminants for longer life.
  • A radially of axially-mounted connector to fit different applications.


Constructed in the USA, NewTek’s NT-HL-750 series of Linear Position Sensors have standard lead times of 6 to 8 weeks, with expediting options available for emergency requirements.  For more information, refer to or contact Mike Marciante at 856-406-6877 to discuss your application requirements.
