Sensor: Chemical Resistance to External Parts


The wireless vibration sensor has 5 primary components for assembly.  Each have different tolerances to chemical exposure.  This document summarizes the completed assembly and best practices.


If in doubt about the integrity of the wireless sensor, turn off, remove, and contact Symphony Industrial AI for replacement.


The device should not be exposed to inorganic concentrated acids, chromic acid solutions, aniline hydrochloride, hydrochloric, hydrofluoric, nitric, phosphoric (>40%), sulfuric acids.


Should not be exposed to alcohols such as benzyl, carboxylic, isopropyl, methanol, or ethanol.

Salt Solutions:

Can support exposure to some salt solutions such as sodium chloride (10%), sodium carbonate (2%, 20%), zinc chloride (50%), but should not be exposed to sodium fluoride, sodium hypochlorite (10%), sodium sulfide.


Should not be exposed to hydrocarbons such as aliphatic, aromatic, phenols, ketones, ethers or polar hydrocarbons.


Device should not be exposed to acetone, alkalis, aluminum fluoride, ammonium fluoride, brake fluid, bromine, butane, chlorine, gasoline, iodine, kerosene, linseed oil, methane, phenol solution (5%), thionyl chloride, triazane.


Note: this list is not inclusive of all tests or exhaustive of all chemicals exposure potentials.
