1. What is a multivariable transmitter?


The multivariable transmitter is the differential pressure transmitter that can measure temperature, static pressure, and other values. You can name these values as independent processing variables that are useful in compensating whenever there is a change in the density and viscosity of the medium. The multivariable transmitter also allows you to measure the parameters of the flowing medium whenever you are using it as a flowmeter. While operating as a differential pressure transmitter helps measure temperature, pressure, and differential pressure at similar timings. In real-time, the multivariable transmitter permits you to calculate the compensating flow of the mass. The multivariable transmitter facilitates the more correct readings while comparing with the primary differential pressure transmitters. The rate of accuracy is low in typical differential pressure transmitters. Because it cannot measure the variations of the pressure and temperature. The turndown ratio of the multivariable transmitter is 14: 1, which delivers high accuracy during the more extensive range of the flowing medium.

The applications of the multivariable transmitter are custody transfer, balancing the energy and material. You can also optimize and control through the multivariable transmitter.

6. What is the purpose of using a multivariable transmitter?


The multivariable transmitter measures more than one variable in the process just by using a single instrument. The multivariable transmitter can measure the temperature, pressure, and differential pressure. So, the multivariable transmitter serves as measuring the three different variables. The multivariable transmitter is also capable of measuring the mass flow or computation of the flow. An electronic display in the multivariable transmitter is present to show the processing temperature. The multivariable transmitter also displays the mass and volume of the flowing rate. The compensation option is available in some multivariable transmitters to shrink or expand in the pipeline’s working with the various pressure levels. You can also measure the accurate flowing of the gas by using the multivariable transmitter.


7. How does the multivariable transmitter work?


The operation of the multivariable transmitter is through the microprocessor and helps provide a reasonable accuracy rate and reliability. The composition of the multivariable transmitter is by the sensors, so it can measure the absolute and differential pressure. The sensors are present in the capsule, and these capsules are resistant to the piezo. When you apply the processing pressure on the multivariable transmitter and its diaphragm, it moves towards the sensor and microprocessor. Their combinations perform all the calculations. The multivariable transmitter replaces three transmitters, so there is a reduction in the multivariable transmitter’s installation cost.


8. Which factors to consider during the selection of multivariable transmitters?


The main factor for selecting the multivariable transmitter is choosing the primary element. For example, there are two parts in the differential pressure flow measuring applications: one is the primary element, and the other is the secondary element. The primary feature includes flow nozzles, pitot tubes, wedge meters, and Venturi tubes. The secondary elements are the multivariable transmitter or differential pressure transmitter.

According to the different properties of the fluid, the selection of the primary element is according to the applications. One more factor for the consideration of multivariable transmitters is the requirement and compensation of temperature and pressure. The fluid density changes with the corresponding changes in temperature and pressure. The variation in the density affects the measurement accuracy if there is no compensation in the flow rate. The occurrence of this adjustment is whenever the temperature, viscosity, density, or pressure impacts the flow rate.

9. Where do you use the multivariable transmitter?


The multivariable transmitter helps measure the differential pressure of the flow in various applications. For example, you can use a multivariable transmitter to measure the volume of the natural gas flowing during the filling of the underground storage under a high level of static pressure. The measurement has to be accurate. The measuring value is the specification of the standard volume of the flowing natural gas.

The multivariable transmitter is also suitable for measuring the level in the applications. The hydrostatic measurement of the level at which the multivariable transmitter provides an economical solution and easy installation. The multivariable transmitter helps in industrial applications whose working conditions are challenging. The multivariable transmitter is suitable for managing the changes in density and temperature affecting the rate of accuracy. You can also record the processing temperature and pressure along with the differential pressure by the multivariable transmitter. The changes in the density of the measuring medium can be corrected through the multivariable transmitter. As a result, there is a visible improvement in the quality of the measurement by the multivariable transmitter.

The combination of the multivariable transmitter is with the sensor, microprocessor, and dynamically flowing compensation. Therefore, it helps in producing the most accurate measurement and consistency in the measurement of the flow.

12. How is the design of a multivariable transmitter?


The multivariable transmitter accepts modular designing. It comprises a differential pressure sensor along with the integration of the electronic adaptor unit, a module of an amplifier with the controlling unit. The multivariable transmitter also has a two-wiring system RTD terminal for the input that helps measure the temperature of the process. The module of the sensor has a completely welded structure. Inside this module, there is a twin barreling system whose connection is with the overloaded isolation diaphragm; one absolute pressure sensor and other differential pressure are present inside the multivariable transmitter. The installation of an absolute pressure sensor is on the higher side of the pressure and measuring the pressure in the reference value to compensate for the effect from the static pressure. The differential pressure sensor is made by one capillary tube whose connection is with the negative pole of the sensor module.

Extra differential pressure is applied to the diaphragm of the differential pressure sensor by isolating the diaphragm and liquid in the filler. A small variation of the diaphragm changes the output voltage of the testing system. The voltage signals are directly proportional to the input pressure that keeps digitalizing with the help of an adaptor before transmitting into the amplifier. The amplifier performs the linearity on the signal and compensating for the temperature. The three values DP (differential pressure), P (pressure), and T (temperature) get converted into signals that are directly proportional to the mass flow rate. Depending on the different models of the multivariable transmitter, you can establish the connectivity from the female screw on the elliptical flange on the multivariable transmitter. Or the connection can be between the remote flanges and processing pipelines.

13. What are the considerations to install the multivariable transmitter?


There are three divisions of the considerations for installing the multivariable transmitter:

  • General considerations: The measuring performance is dependent on the accurate installation of the multivariable transmitter, impulse piping, and sensor of the processing temperature. Always mount the multivariable transmitter near the process and minimize the piping to receive the best performance. Also, consider the requirement of easy accessibility, the proper field for the calibration, and a suitable environment for the multivariable transmitter. The installation of the multivariable transmitter is for the reduction of vibration, shock, and fluctuations in temperature.
  • Mechanical considerations: In the steam applications along the processing temperature is more than the limit of the multivariable transmitter, never blow the impulse piping from the multivariable transmitter. Before proceeding towards measurement, close the flushing lines of the blocking valves and fill the lines again with the water. When the mounting of the multivariable transmitter is on its side, place the coplanar flange for receiving the draining or venting correctly. During the gas services, keep the connections of the venting and draining at the bottom, and during the liquid services, keep on the top.
  • Environmental conditions: Accessing the requirements and installation of the cover help optimize the performance of the multivariable transmitter. Mount the multivariable transmitter is beneficial for reducing temperature changes, mechanical shocks, and vibrations. At the external level, avoid the multivariable transmitter to get in contact with the corrosive materials. Note down the limits of the operating temperature.

14. What are the tools for the configuration of the multivariable transmitter?


  • Option of integrating the three-button configuration: This configuration is applicable for all electrical and environmental conditions. It can configure the multivariable transmitter and display by the accessibility of the three external buttons except for the flow parameters. The capabilities of zero and span are also present as an option by these buttons without or with selecting the display option.
  • Handheld configuration: The multivariable transmitter offers two-way communication and configures between the operator and the multivariable transmitter. The multivariable transmitter configures all the parameters for the safety environments—the designing and testing for fulfilling the requirements by the communication protocols. The multivariable transmitter can work from any handheld configuration device that is with proper validation.
