Variable Area Flowmeter

The float of a VA Flowmeter easily moves up and down in the conical measuring tube. The vertical position of the float, obtained as a function of the flow velocity of the measuring media, is an indication of the flow rate. This flow rate can be read directly on the scale of the measuring tube.

Turbine Flowmeter

Fluid entering the meter first passes through an inlet flow straightener that reduces its turbulent flow pattern. Fluid then passes through the turbine, causing the turbine to rotate at a speed proportional to fluid velocity. As each turbine blade passes through the magnetic field generated by the meter’s magnetic pickup, an AC voltage pulse is generated. These pulses provide an output frequency that is proportional to volumetric flow.

Gas Turbine Flowmeter

The operation of the International Gas Turbine Meter is based on the measurement of the velocity of gas. The flowing gas is accelerated and conditioned by the meters straightening section. The straightening vanes prepare the gas flow profile by removing. undesired swirl, turbulence and asymmetry before the gas flows to the turbine wheel. The dynamic forces of the flowing fluid cause the rotor to rotate.

The turbine wheel is mounted on the main shaft, with special high precision, low friction ball bearings. The turbine wheel has helical blades that have a known angle relative to the gas flow. The conditioned and accelerated gas drives the turbine wheel with an angular velocity that is proportional with the gas velocity.

Diaphragm Switches

Level control with a membrane is the most economical method in measurement  of  level of  bulk  material  in  the  storage.  It  can  be used in open and non-pressure tanks. The diaphragm switch can check full, empty and loaded situations of powdered, dusty, corny, granular, grained bulk materials in the grain elevator. It is appropriate for using particles with 0,3 and 2,5 t/m³ and up to max. 30 mm.  The Membrane must be in contact with the material.

Working Principle:
As  long  as  material,  which  is  poured  to  the  grain  elevator, accumulates, the  membrane  is  closed.  The material  pushes  membrane back with composed press and mechanism pushes the contact. Contact  gives  audible  alarm  or sends a signal to stop the  filling mechanism of the grain  elevator.  When the material  precipitates and reduces, the contact reverts back. Precision setting is made during assembly by sliding the mechanism.

Vibrating Rod Limit Switch

The Vibrating Rod Limit Switch for solids is a single element tunned mechanical element-type level sensing device. The electronics excites the piezo-electric-crystals inside tuning rod, which makes the rod vibrate at it’s natural resonance frequency in free air. When the material touches the rod, vibration stops as resonance gets disturbed. Amplitudes of vibration are above threshold when the rod is free to vibrate. Amplitudes of vibration, as sensed by the electronics falls below the threshold, Materials presence is thus detected by observing the amplitude of vibration.

Vibrating rod level limit switches are used as a full, empty and demand alarm in containers, hoppers, silos containing bulks and powders of various types. Typical applications: cereals, beans, edible oil process, sugar, animal feed, rice plants, detergents, dye powder, chalk, gypsum, fly-ash, cement, sand, plastic granules, spices, milk powder etc.

Conductivity Switches

Conductivity level switches are used for checking liquid level of tanks and boilers. As it does not have any movable part, it can be used in the critical ambient and in the liquids with solid particle,
low density and high viscosity.

When liquid leved comes to the level of isolated electrode, current passage starts or stops between electrode andliquid. Strengthened this AC current may be assesed with a relay cirruit.

Application Areas
lt is an economic and safe solution for air pressure tank applications, water level control of steam boilers and conductive tanks.

RF Admittance Level Transmitters

RF admittance is a new level control technology developed from capacitive, anti-hanging material, more reliable, more accurate, and more applicable. It is an upgrade of capacitive level technology.

The so-called radio frequency admittance, admittance means the reciprocal of the impedance in electricity, which is composed of resistive components, capacitive components, and inductive components.

And radio frequency is the high frequency radio spectrum, so RF admittance can be understood as using high frequency Radio wave measurement admittance.

Application Areas

The RF level sensor is used in industrial and mining sites and is suitable for liquid, pulp, powder, oil, and solid measurement liquids.

Magnetostrictive Level Transmitters

The Magnetostrictive level trandmitter consists of three parts: probe rod, circuit unit and float. When measuring, the circuit unit generates current pulse and this pulse transmits downward along the magnetostrictive line and thus generates a ring-form magnetic field.On the outside of the probe rod is a float, which moves up and down along the probe rod with the change of the liquid level.The float also generates a magnetic field due to a set of permanent magnetic inside the float. When the current magnetic field meets the float magnetic field, a “twist” pulse, or “return” pulse, is generated. The time difference between the “return” pulse and the current pluse is converted into a pluse signal, which calculates the actual position of the float and measures the liquid level.

Application Areas

Magnetostrictive Level Transmitters are widely used in liquid level measurement fields such as petroleum and chemical industry. They have gradually replaced other traditional sensors and become the best in liquid level measurement.

Ultrasonic Level

The Ultrasonic Level Measurement is mounted on top of the vessel. Under the control of the electronic unit, the probe emits ultrasonic wave pulse to measured medium. The sound wave is reflected by the surface of medium, a part of reflection echo is received by the probe and converted into electrical signal. From the emission of the ultrasonic wave to the new reception, the time is directly proportion to the distance from the probe to the measured medium. The electronic unit detects the time and calculates out the measured distance according to the known sound velocity and obtains the level or volume of the medium.

Non Contact Radar

The Radar Level Meters are excellent devices for no contact level measurement. The microwave
impulses, emitted by the radars antenna, travel at speed of light and a part of their energy, reflected by the surface of the medium to be measured, is received by the same antenna.The period of time (flying time)
between the emission and the arrival of the impulses, is proportional to the existing distance between the antenna and the surface of the medium to be measured.

Displacer for Liquid Level and Interface

The transmitter with displacer is utilising the Archimedes Buoyancy Principle for continuous measurement of

  • level and interface
  • volume and mass
  • specific gravity (SG)

in liquid media. It is independent of pressure, temperature, conductivity, dielectric, foam or vapor. No power supply is needed.
The level measured in this way is transmitted to the display and / or the transmitter by means of a lifting rod and a magnetic coupling.

Applications for mobile and stationary containers.

Float Level Switches – top or sidemounted

Top or sidemounted float level switches are used for measuring and checking level of tank. lt is preferred in food, ship machine, boiler and storage tank applications with its advantages such as resistance to high temperature, long life contact structure, which is operable in each, vertical or horizontal connection.

Microswitch changes direction with the movement, occurring after magnet in float arm, moving by changing liquid level, affects magnet inside body, magnetically optained contact information is assessed by transferring into applications such as pump, solenoid valve etc.

For 2 layer interface applications with two different media the float drops into the upper liquid and is buoyanced accordingly by the lower liquid. The level is detected by a mechanical lever system and a magnetic coupling without contact to the display and / or transmitter.

Liquid Level Gauges (Tubular, Transparent, Reflex, Illuminator)

Liquid level gauges are mounted to the tank as a bypass chamber. It works according the law of communicating tubes. The level in the glass tube is identical to the level in the tank and can be monitored directly. 

Tubular Level Gauges are used for observing the fluid level at low temperature & low pressure.A tubular level gauge consists of a glass tube between two shut-off-safety-valves. The valves also serve as process connection via flange, thread or welding end. 

Reflex Level Gauges are used for observing the level of various liquids by using the reflection of light –  for high pressure & high temperature but not for steam measurements.The glass of a Reflex Level Gauge is ground in a way to enable it to refract light like a prism. At the zone of liquid to measure, the light gets almost absorbed. That makes this zone very much darker than the zone of gas. By this contrast the liquid level can be observed clearly. 

Transparent Level Gauges are used for observing the fluid level for high pressure & high temperature applicable for steam measurements.Inside the stand pipe of a Transparent Level Gauge, the liquid column is placed between two glass panels, which enable to see through. This transparency makes observation of the liquid level easily possible. 

The Illuminator option for Liquid Level Gauges is used for observing the fluid level in a dim place or at night.
Complete range of size, single and double section explosion-proof illuminators are made in single and double section styles for transparent and reflex level gauges. Double section illuminators require only one bulb for complete illumination of two gauge sections.

BYPASS

The bypass flow meter operates on the differential-pressure method. A ring with an orifice plate is installed in the pipeline. The orifice plate causes constriction of the flow and effects a drop in pressure. This pressure drop is proportional to the square of the flow rate.

If the pressure tap upstream of the orifice plate is connected by a pipe to that downstream of the orifice plate, a partial flow will flow through that pipe. This partial flow is proportional to the flow rate in the main pipeline.

The partial flow can be turned on and off, as required, by installing two ball valves in the bypass line.

The low-cost device in PVC is frequently used in swimming-pool water technology. The device in PVDF is suitable for the flow measurement of aggressive media, e.g. in water treatment, while the stainless steel type  is mainly used for flow measurement of air and gases. The measuring range extends from 0.02 – 0.16 m3/h to 300 – 1800 m3/h for H20, and from 0.15 m3/h – 1.5 to 1200 – 6000 m3/h for air at STP.

Positive Displacement

Positive Displacement Flowmeters are precise, reliable and rugged instruments for the volumetric flow of clean liquids including Solvents, Alcohols, Fuels, Oils, additives, chemicals, food bases, paints and viscous emulsions in general industrial, petroleum and chemical applications that require high degrees of accuracy and repeatability. They operate on the Positive Displacement principle using a gear technology (oval gear, tri gear, helical gear), or a sliding/rotary vane or bi-rotor alternative. Each rotation of a gear, (or vane) is proportional to a discrete unit of volume, in turn, the speed at which the gears rotate is directly proportional to flowrate. Output sensors (e.g. Reed and Hall Effect sensors) detect the movement of the gears, thus allowing local or remote instruments to display flow total, rate of flow or facilitate batching applications.

WEDGE TUBE

Thermocouple Sensor

Thermocouples are the most commonly used temperature sensors. Thermocouples are self-powered, (require no excitation current), can operate over a wide and high temperature range, and have fast response times.

Two dissimilar metal wires are joined together forming an electrical junction. The temperature difference of the two dissimilar conductors produces a temperature dependent voltage as a result of the thermo electric effect, (Seebeck effect). The voltage is measured and used to calculate the temperature.

There are different hot junction types: insulated hot junction (SO), grounded hot junction (SP), one hot Junction for 2 TC insulated from the sheath (SOA), hot junctions insulated from each other and from the sheath (SOB).

Thermocouples have a built in electronic cold junction compensation to correct the missing thermoelectric voltage due to the fact that the thermocouple cold end at the instrument is not at 0°C.

There are several types of thermocouples made from different materials for different temperature ranges and different sensitivities. The most commonly used is the K type. Here a list of the common types of thermocouples:

Bourdon Tube Pressure Gauges

An elastic (circled) measuring element (Bourdon tube) will be soldered or welded into a socket; the free end being firmly closed. A change in pressure causes the measuring element into a deflection. This deflection of the free end of the Bourdon tube is proportional to the applied pressure and will be transmitted to a rotary geared movement. This movement carries a pointer and indicates the pressure on a dial with 270° angle. An elastic (circled) measuring element (Bourdon tube) will be soldered or welded into a socket; the free end being firmly closed. A change in pressure causes the measuring element into a deflection. This deflection of the free end of the Bourdon tube is proportional to the applied pressure and will be transmitted to a rotary geared movement. This movement carries a pointer and indicates the pressure on a dial with 270° angle. Bourdon tube gauges are used for the measurement of high pressure up to 1000 bar and vacuum to -1 bar of gases, steam and fluids. The case size ranges from 40 mm to 1000 mm. Manodamp® axle damping movement is available for cases with 100 mm and 160 mm.
The accuracy is between ± 0,1% and ± 2,5% of full scale deflection. The bourdon tube can be made of brass, stainless steel or monel in case of aggressive medium.
The ambient temperature shall be -40…+60°C; the medium temperature not higher than +60°C using brass connection and +200°C using “UNI” type gauges made of stainless steel.

Diaphragm Pressure Gauges

A thin, concentrically corrugated diaphragm will be fixed between two flanges. The diaphragm will be loaded with the process pressure on one side and elastically deflects from its normal position. This way is proportional to the applied pressure and will be transmitted to a rotary geared movement. The movement carries a pointer and indicates the pressure on a dial with 270 angle. 

Diaphragm pressure gauges are used for the measurement of pressure up to 40 bar and vacuum to -1 bar of gases, steam and fluids. Accuracy is ± 1,6% of full scale deflection. Case size from 100 mm to 250 mm diameter. The diaphragm can be protected against aggressive medium using foils made of Tantalum, Hastelloy C etc. or PTFE-coating. The connecting part can be made or protected with suitable material, i.e. SS 316L, PP, PVC, PVDF etc. Diaphragm pressure gauges with open measuring flange are perfectly suited for high viscous, crystallizing and solid matter containing medium in Industries like Palm Oil or Cooking Oil. Diaphragm pressure gauges can be easily supplied with an overload safety. 

The ambient temperature shall be -20…+60°C; the medium temperature not higher than +100°C.

Capsule Pressure Gauges

The capsule consists of two thin, concentrically corrugated diaphragms welded or soldered together. Pressure change in the capsule causes an elastic deformation on both sides of the measuring element. The travel of the measuring element is proportional to the measured pressure. It will be transmitted to a pointer using a geared movement and indicated on a dial with 270° angle.

Capsule pressure gauges are used for the measurement of low positive or negative values up to 600 mbar. Accuracy is ± 1,6% of full scale deflection. The capsule is made of brass or SS316 and used for measuring gases only. The ambient temperature shall be -20…+60°C; the medium temperature not to be higher than +100°C.

Differential Pressure Gauges

A pressure chamber will be separated by a thin diaphragm. This diaphragm is under static pressure from both chambers and additionally from one chamber with the measuring pressure. The diaphragm will transmit the pressure difference through a bellow onto the movement. The movement indicates the positive or negative value on a dial with 270° angle. A bellow on the opposite side compensates the power. 

DP Gauges are available from 0-1 bar to 0-25 bar with cases in 100 mm and 160 mm. They are made of stainless steel with standard connections of ½” BSP. 

Differential pressure gauges are used for the measurement of gases and fluids; these can also be aggressive.Accuracy is ± 1,6% of full scale deflection. The ambient temperature shall be -20…+60°C; the medium temperature not higher than +100°C.

Magnetic Level Gauges and Transmitters

Magnetic level indicators offers a reliable, accident-free and maintenance-free usage through a simple and break-resistant construction at a maximum process pressure of 320 bar and a temperature range from -50 °C through 400 °C to display the filling level of a tank. They have 3 basic parts: the chamber/tube, float and indicator. The fluid level is indicated directly with a separation of the measurement and indication area. The magnetic transfer of the fluid level from the tank to the indicator is continuous and vibration- resistant, even in the case of fast changing levels. 

  • Continuous magnetic transmission of the liquid level from the vessel to the gauge
  • Resistant to vibration
  • Level measurement for atmospheric and pressurized vessels, (liquid contained in pressure tight housing)
  • Perfect readability of the display even at greater distances and after several years
  • Simple, unbreakable and no-maintenance design
  • Suitable for corrosive, toxic or flammable media with separation of measurement and display compartments
  • Great reliability even at high temperatures and pressures
  • Alarm contacts can be attached at any point along the gauge
  • Optonal level control with switch contacts and/or analogue signal, (4…20 mA Hart/Profibus PA/Fieldbus)

  • No auxiliar power required

Capacitance Switches and Transmitters

Capacitance level instruments have a capacitive level sensor for level measurement of conductive liquid, low conductive liquid, granulated materials with solid particles, adhesive and acid/basic liquids. When a material comes between electrode rod and tank wall, a capacitance change occurs and when this change exceed adjustment threshold, contact output is delivered. Full-empty calibration can be performed easily and safely. Different designs and different solution related to industrial levelmeasurement are offered especially for machinery manufacturers.

Application Areas

Liquid tanks, food machines, cooling liquid tanks, shipping, glycol tanks, brine, waste water tanks. Oil tanks, CO2 liquid tanks, high temperature tanks, non-conductive liquids. Grain stores, cement, sand feed, flour, milk powder, organic and plastic granule. Sticky hot and high viscosity liquid, acid and chemical liquids.

Guided Wave Radar

Guided wave radar (‘radar on a rope’) transmitters are used for reliable product level monitoring. This level measurement technology is not impacted by dust, vacuum, humidity, foam, pressure changes, dielectric and temperature.

The GWR is installed on top of the tank.  A probe or cable is lowered into the vessel from the top and continuously measures the level of the product as it makes contact along its length. A microwave signal is transmitted from top to bottom and reflected back. The distance is calculated by the speed of light and the time delay.

Different probes are used for a variety of applications:

  • coaxial probes for liquids with low dielectric constants
  • single element probes for viscous products
  • twin element probes for long measurement

Interface measurement is possible if the 2 media have different dielectric constants.

GWRs are also used as combo units with Magnetic level gauges for all kinds of liquids in vessels and tanks to have a backup for power cuts or in the power start up process.

Float Level Transmitter

When magnetic field of magnet within the buoy moving along tube according to liquid level comes up to the reed sensor, it opens or closes the electric circuit. Continuous type serial aligned resistance and reed relays are engaged and disengaged. Such changes of reed sensors and alarm or level information can be assessed through a relay circuit or control device.
Precision of reed sensor increases according to lowness of its placement range. It is preferred by the users due to the advantages of providing analogue output within the housing. Furthermore, it is possible to follow and to control the process in the field through indicator.

Rotary Paddle Level Switch

Rotary Paddle level switches are used for level control of solids in silos and tanks where materials with solid particles are stored.Full and empty signals can be received by performing level control in many demanding applications with different probe and pedal varieties in a safe manner. They can be connected horizontally and vertically.

Mini Switches

Mini Level Switches are economic and easy to install devices with minimal space requirements. They are used for level measurement in machines, tanks, boilers, etc. for both liquids and gases.

The Switches can be made by Plastic (PP, PVDF, PBT, Delrin) or stainless steel.

Working Principle:

When the magnetic field in the float is aligned with the reed sensor in the tube it opens or closes the electric ciruit. When the float moves away, the sensor reverts back.

Contact Devices

Contact pressure gauges are used to monitor critical limit values, trigger alarms and start, stop or switch processes by opening, closing or changing over a circuit.

They are used for cases starting at 100 mm diameter. The contacts are built in single-, double and triple versions. Installation will be below the ring dials. The nominal values can be set from outside covering full scale. Switching direction is clockwise.The installation of a contact device needs a junction box and bayonet lock bezel/bayonet lock case or push-fit bezel.

Thermowell Protection Tubes

A thermowell is a pressure tight tube which protects a temperature sensing element, (RTD, TC or other sensors) from corrosion, high presure or high velocity of the process media. The tube can be welded, flanged, threaded or clamped (sanitary) to a vessel or pipe.It allows the sensing element to be removed for service or repair without closing down the process line.

Quality thermowells are machined from drilled barstock (stainless steel material) to ensure a good sensor fit. Teflon, Alumina or ceramic materials are used for special high temperature or corrosive applications. A spring loaded temperature sensor ensures metal to metal contact with the tube. Tapered or stepped shapes of the tube improve the response time.

Mathematical Wake Frequency Calculations ensure that the thermowell design is robust enough to withstand the various stresses and strains produced by the process media, (turbulences/wakes, temperature, etc.) to avoid that the process media wake frequencies coincide with the tube frequencies which would lead to cracks and destruction.

We provide wake frequency calculation and can offer fully explosion proof solutions for the complete units (housing, sensors and protection tubes).

RTD Sensor

An RTD is a temperature sensor to measure temperature using the principle that the resistance of a metal changes with increasing or decreasing temperature. They required an electrical current (exitation current) which is transmitted through a piece of metal, called the RTD element or resistor. RTDs have a near linear response to temperature changes, they are stable and accurate and give repeatable responses.

Most RTD elements consist of a length of fine coiled wire (most commonly Platinum, Nickel or Copper)
wrapped around a ceramic or glass core. The element is usually quite fragile, so it is often placed inside a sheathed probe to protect it.

RTDs are available in 2, 3 and 4 wire configuration. (2 wire for short lead length,  3 wire (most commonly used) adds a line for the exication current to cancel the wire resistance effect, 4 wire config for highest accuracy)

The PT100 probe (el. resistance of 100.00 Ohm at 0°C) is most commonly used in industrial applications. PT500 (500 Ohm at 0°C) and PT1000 (1000 Ohm at 0°C) probes are available.

Machinery Thermometers

The measuring principle is based on the volumetric temperature expansion of the filling liquid in the glass tube. The expansion of the filling liquid is indicated on a scale. Machinery- glassthermometers are used for temperatures from -60°C up to +600°C.Accuracy is ± 1,6% of full scale deflection.
