Jogler Magnetostrictive and LIDAR Level Transmitters

This video illustrates the technology used in the Jogler MGT-6000, ILT-6000, and LLT-1000. Both the ILT-6000 and the LLT-1000 are Magnetostrictive Level Transmitters, whereas the LLT-1000 is a LIDAR Level Transmitter. 

The MGT-6000 Magnetostrictive Level Transmitter is a loop-powered non-contact level measurement device that attaches to a magnetic level gauge. The MGT-6000 uses the magnetostrictive principle and time-of-flight calculations to quickly and accurately measure float position and, ultimately, the liquid level in the indicator. Elastomeric vibration-isolating bushings ensure continuous operation in high-vibration environments. 

The ILT-6000 Direct Insertion Magnetostrictive Level Transmitter is a non-contact loop-powered level measurement device installed directly into a process vessel. The ILT-6000 provides a fast and accurate measurement of float position and, ultimately, the liquid level in the gauge by utilizing the magnetostrictive principle and time-of-flight calculations. The ILT-6000 installs in an isolation well assembly, which allows the transmitter to be removed, serviced, or replaced without disrupting the process. 

The LLT-1000 LIDAR Level Transmitter is a laser-based non-contact instrument for measuring dry solids and opaque liquids in silos, tanks, hoppers, and other vessels. The LLT-1000's 4-20mA and relay outputs allow its use in a variety of control schemes.

What Is Mettler Toledo Intelligent Sensor Management (ISM)?

Mettler Toledo Process Analytics Intelligent Sensor Management (ISM) is an innovative digital technology for analytical process parameters that combines many features into a unique solution. The foundation of the technology is built from a microprocessor embedded in all ISM sensors. This allows a wealth of valuable features that analog sensors cannot compete with, including a robust digital signal fast error-free measurement, point startup, and advanced diagnostics that clearly inform operators when calibration maintenance or replacement will be required. 

The critical diagnostics tool in ISM is the dynamic lifetime indicator (DLI). The DLI provides technicians with a clear indication of how much the exposure to a process has altered a sensor's condition. In the case of ph sensors by continuously analyzing the process conditions and other factors. The DLI constantly calculates how many days are remaining in the reliable lifetime of the sensor. There is no estimating based on a percentage of remaining life. You receive a precise number of days of life remaining, making it easy to plan maintenance and replacement. If process conditions become more or less harsh, the DLI rapidly responds appropriately. In addition the DLI actually adapts to process conditions to ensure diagnostics are always reliable.

Another important feature of ISM technology is "plug and measure" when connected to an ISM transmitter. The pre-calibrated sensor is instantly recognized and the transmitter configures itself appropriately without any operator intervention. When an exchange of sensor is needed this plug and measure functionality means a pre-calibrated sensor can be installed and be ready to measure in under a minute. This substantially reduces the amount of time that maintenance staff need to spend at measurement points. With its highly informative diagnostics that adapt rapidly to process conditions and its robust digital signal, ISM offers efficiencies in maintenance planning, plant safety and productivity while also reducing production costs.

Continuous, Inline Process Refractometers Can Help You Improve Your Food Production Process

Process Refractometers

Adherence to dissolved substance concentrations in food processing is critical for consistent product quality. A refractometer, which measures refractive index, is an excellent tool for monitoring these concentrations. 

When immersed in a fluid, refractometers measure the magnitude of redirecting light, referred to as the angle of refraction. The refractometer links these measurements to the refractive index (nD), a long-established computation of known values. These values determine the concentrations of the solutions. 

Measuring dissolved solids in food production has enormous promise for better efficiency and quality. Many applications use a manual method in which measurements are taken repeatedly and at short intervals, which is inefficient and slows down the operation. Taking process measurements with a pipe-mounted (inline) continuous refractometer, such as the Electron Machine MPR E-Scan, is a considerably more efficient and time-saving method. 

The MPR E-Scan continually checks the concentration utilizing an inline sensor, allowing for accurate measurement of the devolved solids and repeatable process control. Typical applications cover all elements of the food business. Controlling the sugar content in juices, soft drinks, jams, and jellies; measuring the milk-fat solids in dairy products; and measuring mash measurements, wort concentration, and alcohol level are examples in food production. Continuous and real-time measurement reduces production run time and increases efficiency considerably.

Prevent Cold Weather from Affecting Your Outdoor Process Instrumentation

Ambient temperature will affect the measurement accuracy of process instruments. Additionally, when ambient temperatures are too low, fluids in the lines can freeze or thicken – resulting in physical damage. Instrumentation, manifold valves, actuators, and positioners exposed to adverse conditions need protection to avoid weather-related damage such as freezing.  

WinterShield™ Freeze Protection Heated Pockets (WSP Series) provide a "pocket" where the ambient air temperature within is maintained via a pre-set thermostat, thereby keeping your instrumentation well within typical operating specifications.

The WinterShield™ system provides a convenient, portable way to warm process equipment and keep it within proper operating temperatures. The design is indeed "plug and play" as they are entirely self-contained, include a power cord, thermostat, lacing, and insulation.
