What is A Single-Flange Level Transmitter

In the field of industrial automation and process control, liquid level measurement is a crucial aspect. It is directly related to the stability, safety and efficiency of the production process. Among many level measurement devices, single flange level transmitter has become the preferred measurement tool for many engineers and technicians due to its unique advantages. So, what is single flange level transmitter? Let us start from the point of view of a professional manufacturer, to provide you with a detailed introduction to the definition, principle, characteristics and applications of this product.

What is A Single-Flange Level Transmitter

I. Definition

Single flange level transmitter is a liquid level measurement device based on the principle of pressure sensing. It calculates the height of the current liquid by measuring the pressure change generated by the liquid on the isolation diaphragm, combined with the density information of the liquid. As a kind of field transmitter directly installed on the pipeline or vessel, single flange level transmitter has the advantages of simple structure, convenient installation, flexible adjustment and high measurement accuracy.

Ⅱ. Principle

The working principle of single flange level transmitter is mainly based on pressure sensing technology and density information of liquid. When the measured liquid exerts pressure on the isolation diaphragm, the diaphragm will undergo deformation, and this deformation will be converted into an electric signal through the internal sensor. At the same time, the transmitter corrects the measurement results according to the density information of the liquid to ensure the accuracy of the measurement results. Finally, the transmitter will convert the measured liquid level height information into a standard 4~20mA.DC signal output for control system or display instrument.

Ⅲ. Characteristics

Simple structure: The single flange liquid level transmitter adopts integrated design without any movable or elastic components, so it has extremely high reliability and stability. Meanwhile, its simple and compact structure makes it easy to install and maintain.

Easy to install: Since the single flange level transmitter adopts internal structure, it can be installed without using special tools. In addition, its flange interface design conforms to international standards and can be easily connected to various pipelines and vessels.

Flexible adjustment: Single flange level transmitter has two potentiometers for zero and range, which can be used for zero migration or range change arbitrarily within the effective range of liquid level detection. This kind of adjustment is not only convenient and flexible, but also the two adjustments do not affect each other, which ensures the accuracy of the measurement results.

Wide applicability: Single flange liquid level transmitter is suitable for liquid level measurement of various media, including high temperature, high pressure, strong corrosion, easy to crystallize, easy to precipitate and other media. At the same time, there are a variety of options for its liquid receiving diaphragm material, which can be reasonably selected according to the characteristics of the measured medium to meet the anti-corrosion requirements of different occasions.

High-precision Measurement: The single-flange liquid level transmitter adopts advanced pressure sensing technology and signal processing technology, and has high-precision measurement capability. Its measurement accuracy can reach ±0.1% or ±0.2% of the tuning range, ensuring the accuracy and reliability of the measurement results.

Ⅳ. Application

Single flange level transmitter is widely used in liquid level measurement and control system in petroleum, chemical, electric power, environmental protection, food and other industries. Specifically, it can be used in the following occasions:

  • Level measurement of high-temperature and high-pressure media

Single flange level transmitter can withstand high-temperature and high-pressure environments, and is suitable for level measurement of various boilers, reactors, tanks and other equipment.

  • Level measurement of easily crystallized and precipitated media

For easily crystallized and precipitated media, single flange level transmitter can realize continuous and accurate level measurement by choosing suitable receiving diaphragm material and adjusting parameters.

  • Level measurement of corrosive media

Single flange level transmitter has a variety of choices of receiving diaphragm materials, which can be applied to the level measurement of different corrosive media. At the same time, its anti-corrosion structure transmitter can further improve the corrosion resistance of the measuring equipment.

Measurement of media with solid particles or suspensions: for media containing solid particles or suspensions, the single flange level transmitter can be inserted through the flange structure to achieve accurate measurement.

V. Summary

In summary, single flange level transmitter has become an indispensable part of industrial automation and process control field by virtue of its unique advantages and wide range of application scenarios.
