Transmitter Ideal for Food, Beverage, Dairy and Pharmaceutical Applications
September 2, 2010
The hydrostatic level pressure transmitter can be used in food, beverage, dairy and pharmaceutical applications. Its watertight-patented pressure measuring cell and 316L stainless steel housing with polycarbonate sight glass withstand harsh washdown environments in the food industry. The transmitter can measure level in units of pressure, height, volume or mass with an accuracy of 0.1-percent. The unit can be used to measure level in silos, holding tanks, mixing tanks, filler bowls, balance tanks and other vessels. It meets 3A sanitary standards, has a watertight NEMA 6P-rated (temporarily submersible) housing, and operates in process temperatures from 14 to 212 degrees F. The transmitter can be programmed with strapping tables for nonlinear tanks. A linearization table with up to 32 points can be entered to make accurate level measurements in spheres, horizontal cylindrical tanks, and vessels with a conical outlet. Density and tank linearization tables can be programmed from the display to calculate mass or volume. The instrument can be programmed to measure level in units of pressure, height, volume or mass. Digital communication options include a 4-20mA two-wire signal with HART, Profibus PA, Foundation Fieldbus or WirelessHART.
