APPLICATIONS
The transmitter will operate in most level measurement applications including: Knock-out pots Condensate drums Separators Flash vessels Storage vessels Receiver tanks Most liquids can be measured, with consideration, at operating process temperatures between -76F to +608F and pressures between full vacuum and 2200 PSIG (up to 3705 as a special). Typical liquid S.G. range is from 0.25 to 1.5, and interface applications with an S.G. difference of 0.1 are also practical. The range of the instrument is dependent only upon the length of the element specified, though lengths over 10 feet are considered the longest available.

FIELD ADJUSTMENTS Calibration


The transmitter is configured by the factory to operate in the process conditions advised at the time of order, and the displacer element dimensions are chosen to suit the maximum required span. However, provisions are made to check the calibration once on site and fine tune the calibration with the instrument in an empty vessel at 20C, or with the instrument at operating conditions.

Remote calibration
Remote calibration is not necessary for standard 4-20 mA operation. Alternatively, the ranging may be accomplished by using a SMART Communicator to establish digital communications and set the 4 and 20 mA points electonically, without the need for changing the liquid level using HART protocol.

Local calibration
Several adjustments may be made in the field using the unique Magnetic Scroller (MS) and the Calibration plug. The MS is a calibration tool with a magnetic tip, and is used to access and adjust certain operating parameters. The level transmitter is fitted with a calibration plug, which contains docking ports for the MS along with the heartbeat LED. The adjustments which may be made are as follows:

Local indication (optional)


A multi-function LCD indicator housed in a cast aluminium explosion proof enclosure. The 2 line display can be programmed to show output in percentage, engineering units and other operating parameters.

CONSTRUCTION Transmitter head


The transmitter head is cast iron with a paint finish of two part Epoxy white paint suitable for offshore or coastal use. Wetted parts are made from stainless steel which include the displacer element, trim and pressure tube. The spring is high alloy Nimonic suitable for corrosive liquids and high temperature.

Setting the 4 mA and 20 mA points


May be accomplished locally at the transmitter by using the MS to zero the device with the level at the required 4 mA point, the to Span the device with the level at the 20 mA point. The Zero and Span settings are non-interactive. An additional feature is the ability to span the instrument without the vessel being filled to the 20 mA point. In this case, the vessel is filled to a known level and the output increased to give the corresponding mA level. The 20 mA point is then electronically calculated by the instrument provided the output is linear.

Chamber
Where a chamber is specified, only certified materials to ANSI and ASTM are used. Welding is qualified to ASME IX and designed in accordance with ANSI B31.3. All pressure retaining parts are hydrostatically pressure tested to a minimum of 1.50 times working pressures. Other NDT including radiography & dye penetrant testing is available when specified at time of order. Inspection by customers or their appointed agents is welcome provided this is requested at time of order.

Setting the damping


The user can field set the damping (smoothing or response time) using the MS, to a value up to 100 seconds.

SMART/HART COMMUNICATOR OPTIONS


Hand Held Communicator
The HHC is fitted with a datapack which allows full access to all of the transmitter parameters. Ordering information: Model CK1

Universal Hand Held Communicator


The Universal HHC can be programmed with the Device Description (DD) of any registered HART device to allow full access of all the instrument parameters.

H-View
A Windows based PC programming tool which allows full communication with HART products. H-View provides access to all of the instrument parameters allowing programming and interrogation. Also supported is Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) which allows export and import of any parameter or measured variable into a Windows package such as Microsoft Excel where dynamic mimics can be displayed.

General note
All HART communicator devices allow access and programming of the universal commands and some common practice commands of any HART instrument, regardless of manufacturer.
