Pressure Switch Monitors Fish Hatchery Oxygen Generator
The Presair pressure monitor became a useful tool for fish hatcheries. Our friends over at the Missouri Dept. of Conservation placed the alarm light under the eve of their hatchery building in a location that they can easily see. If there is a problem with the oxygen generator and the pressure drops, the light kicks on and alerts qualified personnel. Their resource technician states, “it has proven to be a very useful tool for our operation.”
You can see in the below images, the hatchery ran air tubing from their oxygen generator to our Tinytrol pressure switch mounted on the wall. When pressure dropped in the oxygen generator the switch kicked the red light on mounted to the outside of the facility.
*It’s difficult to see, but the light is at the peak of the building.
The solution is rather straight forward. It’s a red stack light (also known as a signal tower) paired with a pressure switch. The pressure switch is then plumbed into the air line sensing the oxygen level. When air is not flowing, the light will kick on, alarming personnel.
Presair’s pressure monitor is a simple, economical solution without all the complicated components of a programmable logical controller. Other pressure monitoring devices incur a high cost upwards of a thousand dollars or more. Organizations have quickly found the value of a pressure monitoring device.
