Level Calculation with Remote Seals

Diaphragm seals for tanks under Vacuum

The transmitter must be mounted level with or below the lowest tap to ensure positive pressure at the transmitter.

Level Calculation with Remote Seals

Dist. Between Taps = H

DP = Hside – Lside

DP = (L*SGp + h*SGf ) – (H+h)*SGf

DP = L*SGp – H*SGf

Calibration Range

LRV or 4mA point = Phigh – Plow
LRV = Head2 – Head1

LRV = (0.9*30”) – (0.9*100”)

LRV = -63”H2O

URV or 20mA Point = Phigh – Plow
URV = (Head2 + Head3) – Head1

URV = [(0.9*30”) + (1.1*50”)] – (0.9*100”)

URV = -8”H2O

Cal. Range = -63 to -8 in H2O

Density Calculation with Remote Seals Transmitter

Density Calculation with Remote Seals Transmitter

Max. Allowable ΔS.G = 0.2

Dist. Betw. Taps = 10 ft = 10 x 12” = 120”

Calibration Range

LRV or 4mA point = 120” * (SGp – SGf)

LRV = 120” * (1.1 – 0.95)

LRV = 18”H2O

URV or 20mA Point = 120” * (SGp – SGf)

URV = 120” * (1.3 – 0.95)

URV = 42”H2O

Cal. Range = 18 to 42 inH2O

Interface Calculation with Remote Seals Transmitter

Application Example: To determine % of interface of Liquid A with respect to Liquid B.

Interface Calculation with Remote Seals

Dist. Betw. Taps = 10 ft = 10 x 12” = 120”

Calibration Range

LRV or 4mA point = 120” * (SG1 – SGf)

LRV = 120” * (1.1 – 0.95)

LRV = 18”H2O

URV or 20mA Point = 120” * (SG2 – SGf)

URV = 120” * (1.3 – 0.95)

URV = 42”H2O

Cal. Range = 18 to 42 inH2O
