Calibration of Displacer Level Transmitter
*Ask panel man to put the controller in manual mode for control loop and to put it on MOS for ESD loop.
*Hook up HART Communicator and verify some parameters by refer to data sheet. Typical parameters are, tag number, PV, LRV and URV.
*Isolate the instrument from the process.
WARNING – If the process is hazardous, please ensure proper flushing is done to remove the entire hazard.
Remove isolation drain valve and open the vent flange
*Connect water pump to drain line and line up the reference tube
*Calculate the new measurement to get equivalent up trust force with S.G and length
*Mark on the chamber for reference calibration
*Hook up a multimeter in series with the signal to the DCS to measure current signal.
*Apply water level until 0% marking on chamber
*Multimeter should show 4mA
If not, do zero adjustment at transmitter using HART Communicator
Apply water level until 100% marking on chamber
*Multimeter should show 20mA
*If not, do span adjustment at transmitter using HART Communicator
*Verify the linearity by increasing and decreasing the pressure (0%,25%,50%,75%,100%,75%,50%,25% and 0%of range)
*After completion of the job ask panel operator to put loops back in normal mode or normalize the MOS
High S.G= 0.992
A= 810mm (measurement length)
0% = (A x Low S.G)
= (810 x 0.802)
= 649.42 mm
100% = (A x High S.G)
= (810 x 0.992)
= 803.52 mm
