Measuring techniques for continuous level measurement

In continuous level measurement, the level of a medium in a tank or silo is detected with the help of different measuring methods and converted into an electronic signal. The level signal is either displayed directly on site or incorporated into a process control or management system.
Typical applications for continuous level measurement are process tanks, storage tanks or silos in the process industry.
 
The measured media are:
  • liquids
  • pastes
  • powders
  • bulk solids

Measuring techniques for point level detection

In point level detection, a point level switch detects when a certain predefined level is reached. Such a device is employed when it is not necessary to measure every possible intermediate level, as is the case with continuous level measurement. A switching command starts or stops filling equipment such as conveyors or pumps. Point level switches outputting a binary signal can be integrated into a process control system.
Point level detection systems can be used in liquids, pastes, powders or coarse bulk solids.
 
Typical applications for level switches are:
  • minimum or maximum detection
  • leak detection
  • overfill protection
in process tanks, storage tanks, silos and pipelines.

Differential Pressure Flowmeters

Differential Pressure Flow Meters consist of a flow body containing some type of throttle restriction with known characteristics, such as a venturi, orifice, cone, or segmented wedge. This restriction creates a differential pressure between a pressure tap (P1) upstream of the restriction and a pressure tap downstream of the restriction (P2) which is proportional to the square of the volumetric flow rate. For a more detailed discussion of the principle of operation, please go to: http://www.smartmeasurement.com/flow-meters/differential-pressure/measuring-principle

Differential Pressure Flow Meters are excellent for very low flows or low Reynolds numbers (Re. < 500), high-viscosity fluids which contains dust or solid particles, or applications for measuring flows of liquid cement, crude oil flow meters, asphaltic oil, coal-tar oil, wastewater, hard pulp,  carbon black solution, asphaltic oil, coal-tar oil, wastewater, hard pulp, carbon black solution, as well as two phase flows. SmartMeasurementTM offers Cone-Type Differential Pressure flowmeters as well as a wide selection of Differential Pressure (DP) transmitters that can be used with a customer-supplied Differential Pressure element. Volumetric calculations can be performed with the ALDP-3051 transmitter with the ALDP-3051MV multivariable transmitter has the ability to perform mass flow calculations. Please see the Differential Pressure matrix below for the best fit device for your application.

Smart Measurement’s ALSONIC-AVM system is an open channel flow meter that works as an area-velocity meter in conjunction with a user-supplied level transmitter to measure flow rates in open channels. The ALSONIC-AVM consists of an advanced DSP-based flow computer and four transducers, with the transit time difference of ultrasonic sound pulses being used to measure the open channel flow velocity. The ultrasonic pulses are transmitted upstream and downstream across the channel at an angle between the flow direction and the sonic wave path; the difference in the sonic wave’s transit time is directly proportional to the liquid velocity.

The ALSONIC-AVM may be used in rectangular, circular, trapezoidal, or other shaped channels. Since the transducers create almost no restriction, virtually no head loss is created. The advanced DSP-based flow computer with cross-correlation and FFT technology allows this system to work in the most difficult applications, including those involving liquids with high concentrations of suspended solids and air or a large noise component.

Our unique transit-time technologies will enable accurate flow measurement even with less than ideal flow profiles. The ALSONIC-AVM also comes with an optional, patented Laser Pointer Alignment tool for alignment of each pair of transducers.

Electromagnetic Flow Meters

Electromagnetic flowmeters, also known as magnetic flow meters or simply mag meters, offer a number of practical advantages over traditional flow metering technologies which employ mechanical measuring techniques.

The simple construction of our electromagnetic flow meters is the key to these advantages. A SmartMeasurement magnetic flow meter does not contain any moving parts, rotating gears or turbines, or bearings. Instead, it relies on two electrodes to measure the density of the induced magnetic field that results from an electrically conductive fluid, such as water, flowing through a pipe. The density of the magnetic field is directly proportional to the fluid velocity of the flowing liquid.

For a more detailed discussion of the operating principle of our electromagnetic flow meter designs, please visit our Magnetic Measuring Principle page.

Request a quote today, or contact SmartMeasurement for more information on our electromagnetic flow meter models.

 

High Precision Mag Meter Technology

Specific advantages that our magnetic flow meter technology provides include:

  • High accuracy
  • Low cost
  • Little to no pressure loss
  • Readings that are unaffected by changes in density or viscosity
  • No susceptibility to bearing wear or other mechanical wear-and-tear issues

Because the only wetted components in a SmartMeasurement electromagnetic flow meter are the electrodes and the liner, these components can be fabricated from a variety of materials to make the mag meter compatible with virtually any electrically conductive fluid, including aggressive acids.

The only real limitation of the electromagnetic flow meter is that the measured fluid media must be electrically conductive (> 5μS/cm). Non-conductive fluids, such as oil and other petroleum-based fluids, cannot be measured with mag meter technology.

Magnetic Flow Meter Options

SmartMeasurement offers a comprehensive line of magnetic flow meters, including:

  • General purpose mag meter
  • Battery-powered mag meter
  • High pressure mag meter
  • Mag meter with integrated BTU measurement
  • Ceramic-lined mag meter
  • Insertion mag meter

This wide array of product offerings allows users to select a SmartMeasurement magnetic flow meter for applications in many different industries, from factory automation and food and beverage processing to mining, municipal/wastewater treatment, and pulp and paper production.

Coriolis Mass Flow Meters

What Is A Coriolis Flow Meter?

Coriolis flow meters rely on the Earth’s Coriolis effect to measure fluid mass flow rates. Inside the flow body of a SmartMeasurement Coriolis meter, flow is diverted into two parallel sensor flow tubes, which are vibrated in opposition to one another by an energized drive coil. The mass flow meter’s phase shift, measured by Hall Effect sensors mounted at the sensor tubes’ inlet and outlets, is caused by the Coriolis effect and is directly proportional to the mass of the media flowing through the tubes. Thus, the Coriolis flow meter is a true mass flow meter.

For further information on our Coriolis meters’ principles of operation, please visit our Coriolis Technology page.
 

SmartMeasurement’s Coriolis Meters

 

In addition to providing a direct mass flow reading, our Coriolis flow meters offer a number other advantages. Perhaps the biggest of these advantages is their multi-parameter measurement capability. SmartMeasurement Coriolis meters provide direct mass and volumetric flow rates, process temperature, and density readings.

These liquid flow meters also provide inferred readings for density-dependent parameters such as water-in-oil percentage, degrees Brix, and degrees Baume. Another advantage of our Coriolis flow meters is that they require no straight pipe runs upstream or downstream of the meter.

Mass Flow Measurement

Most traditional flow metering technologies, such as turbine meters or positive displacement meters, employ volumetric techniques. This means that the meter output or displayed value on the screen is in volumetric units of measure, such as GPM or LPM. There are a number of flow measurement applications that require the flow rate to be measured in mass units, including chemical mixing/batching, custody transfer, and emissions monitoring. Making use of volumetric flowmeters in these applications can prove to be challenging because converting the volumetric units to mass units requires the volumetric reading to multiplied by a media density value. For liquid fluid media, the density value changes with temperature; for gas media the density changes with both temperature and pressure. The changing density leads to inaccuracy when volumetric meters are applied in these situations. Mass Flowmeters solve this problem by providing a direct mass flow reading which is immune to changes in process temperature and pressure.  

SmartMeasurement offers two Mass Flowmeter technologies. The ALCM Series of Coriolis Mass flowmeters is ideal for liquid flow measuring applications and is available for line sizes ranging from ½” through 8” and flow rates ranging from 150 to 1,000,000 kg/hr. For compressed gas applications, the ATMF line of Thermal Mass flowmeters is available in both in-line and insertion versions to accommodate line sizes ranging from ¼” to over 30”.

Energy Flow Meters

Energy Flow Meters

Energy Flow Meters Overview: Flowmeters that perform energy measurement consist of a flowmeter with integrated temperature measurement to measure both supply and return temperature and then calculate thermal energy in units of BTUs. In addition to providing direct BTU measurement, these flowmeters also can display liquid flow rate and process temperature. The temperature measurement is typically achieved via use of precision RTD elements while the liquid flow rate measurement can be done with an electromagnetic flowmeter, a turbine flowmeter, an ultrasonic flowmeter, or a variety of other flowmeter technologies.

SmartMeasurementTM offers Energy flow meters that employ ultrasonic and magnetic flow measurement technologies in order to provide users with a degree of flexibility in selecting the best product for their specific application.  For non-intrusive energy measurement, the ALSONIC-EG provides highly accurate energy measurement for applications including treated water with low electrical conductivity and buildings where the air-conditioning can’t be turned off to install the meter.  The ALSONIC-EG enables retrofitting of transducers under pressure with a clamp-on non-intrusive installation method. For applications where there are particulates or bubbles entrained in the fluid, the ALMAG-EG, which makes use of a Mag Meter to measure the liquid flow, is the instrument of choice.  All SmartMeasurement BTU Flowmeters are available with optional Mbus, BACNET, MODBUS, and Profibus communication protocols.

Positive Displacement Flow Meters

 

Positive Displacement Flowmeters, which employ one of the oldest-known flow measurement techniques, are widely used in industry and have one of the largest install bases of any flow meter technology. Positive Displacement Flowmeters feature two precisely machined rotating members inside a measuring chamber of known volume which may be used to accurately determine volumetric flow rate as a function of the rotors' velocity. A more detailed discussion of the principle of operation can be found at:http://www.smartmeasurement.com/flow-meters/positive-displacement/measuring-principle

The advantages that the Positive Displacement Flowmeter provides over other technologies are numerous. These advantages include high accuracy (up to 0.1% of reading), excellent repeatability, wide turndown ratios, high temperature operation, high viscosity operation, no upstream or downstream straight pipe requirement, the ability to be used with mechanical registers which require no electrical power, and readings which are immune to changes in viscosity. This combination of features and advantages makes the PD meter an ideal choice for applications that can be found in many different industries including food & beverage, paint & coatings, oil & gas, and fluid power.

Thermal Flow Meters

Thermal meters measure gas mass flow directly without the need for additional need pressure, temperature and/or density monitoring.  They operate either by introducing a known amount of heat into the flowing stream and measuring an associated temperature change, or by maintaining a probe at a constant temperature and measuring the energy required to do so.  Thermal mass flowmeters include two temperature sensors and an electric heater between them. The heater can protrude into the fluid stream or may be external to the pipe. By eliminating temperature changes in the process, any heat transfer within the flow stream is directly proportional to its mass flow.  For a more complete description of thermal mass flow technologies please go to; http://www.smartmeasurement.com/flow-meters/thermal/measuring-principle

Thermal meters have no moving parts, wide turn-downs (up to 1000:1), a range from 0.02 meters per second (4 feet per minute) to over 200 mps (40,000 fpm), and very low pressure drop.  SmartmeasurementTM, s ATMF series of thermal mass flowmeters can be used with pipe diameters ranging from 8mm (¼”) to up to several meters using our multi-sensor configurations.  Process connections can be flanged, threaded, or hot-tapped ball valve.  SmartmeasurementTM’ s ATMF Series Thermal Mass Flowmeters feature available integral style or remote mount electronics, an easy-to-read OLED display, and a unique calibration self-check technique that allows for field verification of the factory calibration. Please see the Thermal Product Matrix below to select the best configuration for your specific application.

Turbine Measuring Flow Meters

 

Turbine Flowmeters measure volumetric flow, where flow passing through the tube is measured as a function of the mean velocity of the streaming fluid.   Turbine flow meters may be configured to measure either gas or liquid flow rates. A low mass turbine wheel carried axially in the tube is rotated by the fluid; the RPM of the turbine wheel is directly proportional to the mean fluid velocity within the tube. For a more detailed discussion of the principle of operation please go to: http://www.smartmeasurement.com/flow-meters/turbine/measuring-principle

SmartmeasurementTM’ s ALTM turbine flow meters come in sizes ranging from 15-300mm (½” to 12”) and feature a wide turn-down with minimum uncertainty and a very repeatable output.  The ALTM is excellent for precise measurement of instantaneous flow of low-viscosity fluids such as tap and demineralized water, fuels, liquefied gases, light fuel oils, solvents, and pharmaceutical fluids. Please see the turbine flowmeter matrix below to select the best meter for your application.

Ultrasonic Flow Meters

What Is An Ultrasonic Flow Meter?

 

Ultrasonic flow meters offer a number of advantages over other flow measuring technologies. The most distinct of these advantages is the non-invasive nature of ultrasonic measuring technique: fluid flow can be measured by clamping a pair of transducers onto the outside of the pipe without contacting the measured fluid.

This installation method, unique among flow metering technologies, allows ultrasonic flow meters to be used in applications where the process cannot be shut down and/or the pipe cannot be cut for installation. Clamp on flow meters also cause no pressure drop, suffer no mechanical wear and tear, allow for bidirectional measurement, and provide the ability to pass unlimited solids past the meter without damage.

Fluid velocity is measured by sending an ultrasonic pulse from an upstream transducer to a downstream transducer and back again. The measured difference in the amount of time that each pulse takes to traverse the pipe is directly proportional to the mean fluid velocity. SmartMeasurement’s ultrasonic flowmeters use this measured velocity to calculate the liquid flow rate based on user-entered information about the process application.

For a more detailed discussion of our ultrasonic flowmeter’s principles of operation, please visit our Ultrasonic Measuring Principle page.

Variable Area Measuring

 

Variable area flowmeters are simple and versatile devices that operate at a relatively constant pressure drop and measure the flow of liquids, gases, and steam. Variable Area (VA) flowmeters make use of a float, piston or vane placed inside a flow body, which changes position in response to changes in flow rate of the measure fluid media. The position of the float, piston or vane provides a direct visual indication of flow rate. Either the force of gravity or a spring is used to return the float to its resting position when the flow lessens.  For a more detailed discussion of the principle of operation, please go to: http://www.smartmeasurement.com/flow-meters/variable-area/measuring-principle

SmartmeasurementTM’ s ALVAMT Variable Area flow meter is of the spring operated variety, which allows the meter to be mounted in either horizontal or vertical orientations. The ALVAMT makes use of rugged, metal tube construction making it ideal for high pressure, high temperature and other demanding flow applications where safety is a concern.  Features include mechanical readouts for use in locations where power is not available or in hazardous areas; analog and digital LCD local display options, multiple process connection options; several different materials of construction for metering of aggressive fluids and corrosion resistance; and HART enabled 4-20mA output to allow for remote monitoring and control.

Vortex Measuring Overview

Vortex meters are one of the few flow measuring technologies that can measure all three phases of a fluid; gas, liquid and steam.  This technology provides a cost-effective, reliable, low maintenance solution for many flow measurement applications. It has no moving parts, therefore no routine maintenance or cleaning is required. The vortex flowmeter can measure also measure wet and/or dirty gases. Vortex flow sensing technology relies on measuring the number of vortex pulses generated by a bluff body immersed in the flow stream. A bluff body is machined inside the vortex flow meter; as flow pass through this bluff body, vortices are generated in either side of the bluff body. The flow rate can be determined by measuring the number of vortices.  For a more detailed discussion of the principle of operation, please go to: http://www.smartmeasurement.com/flow-meters/vortex/measuring-principle.

The design of SmartmeasurementTM‘ s ALVT vortex flowmeter allows for extremely wide turndowns while maintaining an almost unlimited upper end as well as a high pressure rating.   The ALVT can be configured in inline styles with both NPT and flanged connections or as an insertion meter with optional hot-tapped ball valve mounting for installation and/or removal of the instrument without shutting down the process.  Our ALVT-MASS multivariable vortex flow meter incorporates an RTD temperature sensor and a solid state pressure transducer that allows the mass flow rate of steam, gases and liquids to be measured and displayed directly on the meter’s display. Please see the Vortex flowmeter matrix below to view all available options.

C/FD Series Magnetic Float Level Switch

The FC/FD Series is a magnetic float level switch product line. They are top mounted units designed to provide cost-effective multiple switch points using a single entry point into the vessel.

The FC/FD series is a magnetic float level switch product line based upon two principles, buoyancy and magnetism. The floats of the FC/FD magnetic float level switch are designed for a specific minimum fluid density (specific gravity), based upon the volume and weight of the float elements. The floats contain a magnet and the stationary stem can incorporate the reed switches corresponding to each float. The reed switches open or close their electrical contacts when the magnetic element in the floats come in contact with the reed switch locations in the stem. The reed switches will reverse their contact state when the magnet in the float element moves away from the location of the reed switches in the stem. The FC/FD float level switch is more cost effective than competing technologies when multiple switch points are required from a single point of entry in a vessel.

FG Series Magnetic Float Level Transmitter

The FG Series is a magnetic float level transmitter comprising a float and sensing guide rod. The float is sized (volume and weight) based on the density of the fluid to be measured. As the liquid in the vessel travels up and down, the float will rise and fall on the sensing rod. The magnetic float level transmitter has a resistance output directly proportional to float position, fluid level.

FG series are magnetic float level transmitter devices using the principles of buoyancy and magnetism to generate a changing electrical output in response to the rise and fall of the float on the sensing guide rod. The magnetic float level transmitter provides a 3-wire resistance output or can be equipped with an appropriate level transmitter to provide a 4-20mA analog signal indicating liquid level. The sensing guide rod includes a series of reed switches along the entire measuring length. Placement of reed switches provides either of two possible measuring resolutions.

EG Series Magnetostrictive Level Transmitter

The EG Series is a magnetostrictive level transmitter used to accurately measure the changing level of liquids. The EG magnetostrictive level transmitter uses the principles of buoyancy and magnetostriction. Single and two-float designs are available.

The EG series is a magnetostrictive level transmitter using buoyancy, magnetostriction and state-of-the-art electronics technologies to accurately measure the level of a wide variety of liquids, including interface and insoluble multiple liquids with a two-float design. In the typical EG series magnetostrictive level transmitter a float, appropriately sized for the specific fluid density, is mounted on the level transmitter stem such that the float will travel up and down due to the buoyancy of the float from the fluid being measured. The float contains a magnetic element. To locate the float position the magentostrictive level transmitter electronics sends a short current pulse down a sensor wire located within the level transmitter stem with a specific frequency, setting up a magnetic field along its entire length. This field interacts immediately with the field generated by the magnet contained within the float. The overall effect is that during the brief time that the current flows, a torsional force is produced in the wire, much like a sonic vibration or wave, and travels back to the magnetostrictive level transmitter electronics. A timing circuit exists within the electronics which measures the time-of-flight (TOF) between the start of the current pulse and the return signal. In this manner the float’s location (and therefore the fluid level) is very precisely determined and presented as a level signal by the magnetostrictive level transmitter, typically 4-20mA.

SE Series Rotary Paddle Level Switch

The SE series operating principle is simple. A unit is usually located through a bin wall at the top, middle or low level of a bin. During normal operation (no material present) a synchronous motor rotates the paddle at 1 RPM. When this paddle rotation is impeded by material, surroanding the paddle, motor will stall and cause the Micro switch to change state. (indicating an alarm or control) Product Introduction.

The purpose of the rotary paddle level switch is to detect the presence of solid/powdery material in most kinds of tanks, bins and containers. The unit is usually located through a bin wall at the top, middle or low level of a bin. During normal operation (no material present) a synchronous motor rotates the paddle at RPM. When this paddle rotation is impeded by material, surrounding the paddle, motor will stall and cause the Micro-switch to change state (indicating an alarm or control).

SP Series Thermal Dispersion Flow Switch

SP Series is a thermal dispersion flow switch is a precise flow sensing device for liquids. The principle of operation is based on heat transfer. The SP thermal dispersion flow switch is offered with a variety of output types and materials of construction. No moving parts make the SP series a long lasting and high value flow switch.

The SP series is a thermal dispersion flow switch product line that responds to liquid flow and provides a switch output. Based on the principle of heat transfer, the SP thermal dispersion flow switch consists of two temperature sensors. One temperature sensor is the reference and measures the temperature of the fluid where the thermal dispersion flow switch probe is immersed. The second temperature sensor is heated by the SP using constant power. This creates a temperature difference between the two temperature sensors. As the flow rate of the fluid increases there is a cooling effect due to the fluid moving past the heated sensor. The more flow, the more the cooling. A reduction in temperature difference between the two temperature sensors indicates that the flow rate exceeds the user adjustable set point. When the flow rate drops there is less cooling, which causes an increase in the temperature difference. The SP series thermal dispersion flow switch is available in several versions with choices of lengths, materials of construction and output types to meet a wide range of application requirements..

SF Series Paddle Type Level Switch

SF Series is a paddle flow switch for use with a wide variety of fluids. The paddle flow switch uses the force of the liquid flow to actuate a reed switch. It can be activated by as little as 5gpm (19.4l/m) flow.

The SF series is a paddle flow switch product line with field adjustable paddle length for a variety of flow conditions and pipe sizes. The SF paddle flow switch utilizes the force of the fluid flow in a pipe to move the paddle. As the fluid flow moves the paddle an internal spring is compressed, which moves a magnetic element. With no flow, or with an empty pipe condition, the paddle flow switch spring is fully expanded and the magnetically activated reed switch contact is open, indicating that a no-flow or empty pipe condition exists. As flow increases, the spring is compressed and the magnetic element moves toward the reed switch. When the flow moves the paddle in an upward angle of at least approximately 20⁰~30⁰ (or more) the magnet moves into proximity of the reed switch and activates it and the contact closes to indicate that a fluid flow condition exists.
