DISPLACER TYPE LEVEL TRANSMITTER CALIBRATION INSTRUMENTATION

This article is related to DISPLACER TYPE LEVEL TRANSMITTER CALIBRATION  and is written for Electrical and Instrument engineers and technician etc.

DISPLACER TYPE LEVEL TRANSMITTER CALIBRATION

There is lot of methods for level measurements, one of them is indirectly level measurement when column of liquid exerts pressure. In second sense we can say this is pressure measurement.
The pressure that liquids exerts on base vessel is  directly proportional liquid level of vessel. If the liquid level increases at base of vessel, pressure will also increase.
Mathematically this relationship will be
P = S.H
Here     P =  Pressure of the liquid  (Pascal)  ;  S =  Density of Liquid (Nm3/hr) ; H = level of liquid or column of liquid
If the specific gravity of liquid is constant. We can tell the liquid level by measuring pressure value in base of  the tank or any vessel. For this purpose we can use differential pressure transmitters which is commonly used now a days to measure the pressure at the base of tank.
We know that differential pressure transmitters measure the pressure but they are used for level measurements. DP transmitter are called Level transmitters. A displacer type level is most commonly level application used for the closed vessel as well as interface level where the two process liquid having diffrent specific gravity.

No upper blocking distance.
Independent of density changes.
Less influence by buildup.
Independent of foam.
Less influence by corrosion.
No moving parts.
Independent of vibration.

WORKING PRINCIPLE OF DISPLACER TYPE LEVEL TRANSMITTER

Its works on the arthmedics principle or the law of buoncy, the law say the weight of the substance immerse in the liquid is equal to the amount of liquid displaced by the body.

Now as per the question the way to calibrate the displacer level first we have to isolate the level troll chenber from
its process by isolating the root valves, then drain the liquid presence inthe chamber, connect the PVC transparent tube at the bottom of the cahmber and then start filling the water in the tube.

CALIBRATION OF DISPLACER TYPE LEVEL TRANSMITTER

To calibrate the displacer type LTs by fixed in the work/bench, First remove the head, clean displacer and chamber and
assemble, fix the calibration setup (drain isolation, clear tube and marked scale).

Calculate 100% position of fluid filling, by the Specific gravity of the fluid where the LT being used. (Ex: If specific is 0.8, then the 80% of the displacer height to be marked in chamber due to the water used for calibration), and mark every 25% in chamber ouside for reference.

  • Fill the water and check the transmitter/board/sensor response approximately.
  • Fill the water till the displacer touches. and chk 0% and adjust to 4mA.
  • Fill the water till 100% to check span and adjust 20mA. (If the LT s not responding, replace LVDT/board and chk)
  • Repeat zero and span check 4-5 times and the chk every 25 % rising and falling.

If ok, the prepare the calibration report and tag

ZERO CALIBRATION OF DISPLACER TYPE LEVEL TRANSMITTER

For zeroing Transmitter fill up the water into chember and adjust the zero check
this function two or three times….  compensate the S. G of diff liquids Prcoess S.G= 0.7 and
water S.G= 1.0 to calibrate the transmitter for span 0.7/1.0 *100= 70% fill the water upto 70% adjust the span.
For dry calibration of displacer you should knwo these
details below
Displcer weight: 2400 grms (2.4Kg)
volume of Displacer: 1620.84 by ^r2h..
displacer diameter: 7.620 centimeter
length of displacer: 35.56 centimeter
Note:the limitation of displacer cannot be exceed more than 72 inches….

    […] 7     Measure DC voltage between common and supply terminal of its proximitor using digital  multi meter and ensure that it voltage should e between – 22.5 to -24 VDC 8   Connect digital meter across common and output terminal of proximitor and note down its reading at zero micrometer position. 9        Rotate and move the knob of micro meter from zero position to 10 mills so micrometer spindle goes away from the face of probe and note down multi meter voltage reading. 10   Likewise you rotate micrometer position knob in step of 10 mills gradually up to 100 mill and note down corresponding digital multi meter reading. 11   Tabulate the reading of micrometer 0 to 100 mill VS corresponding  voltage reading of multi meter. 12    Calculate the linearity scale factor of vibration probe using above tabulation. It should be 200  ±10 % milli Volt/mill.
