Safe and Cost Effective Liquid Level Control with Magnetic Level Gauges and Magnetostrictive Transmitters

Magnetic Level Gauges

Magnetic level gauges are a safe, easy, and dependable way to measure fluid levels inside a tank. These visual indicators are a non-invasive, low-maintenance, cost-effective alternative to sight glasses. Because the fluid never comes into contact with the indicating glass, they are exceptionally safe for flammable, toxic, and corrosive liquids. There is no risk of leakage if the glass ever breaks. 

Magnetic Level Gauges (MLGs) are widely used in the monitoring and process control of liquid level and interface in various industries such as petroleum, chemical, power, paper, metallurgy, and water treatment. They are suitable for continuous process level measurement that is real-time, precise, safe, and dependable. 

The magnetic level gauge, bolted to the process vessel, provides real-time level and interface measurement based on magnetic coupling and buoyancy principles. IA float is inside the level gauge chamber with a 360° magnetic ring. An indicator with a vacuum glass tube containing a bi-colored two-face magnetic bargraph connects to the outside of the chamber. The float moves in response to the level change, causing the magnetic bargraph to turn and change color. Additionally, a mating magnetostrictive transmitter provides a continuous analog or digital output. 

The precise liquid level is displayed or "read." The indicator uses hermetically sealed glass tube technology to show the process level clearly. It eliminates, among other things, the common problems associated with glass gauges, such as vapor, condensation, and liquid leakage.

Most Common Applications for Magnetic Level Gauges:

  • Boiler: Steam drum liquid level
  • Power generation: Auxiliary machinery liquid level (HP reheater, LP reheater, de-aerator, condenser and heating network heater etc), chemical water
  • Coal Chemical: Methanol, dimethyl ether, synthesis ammonia/urea, MTO, CTL, SNG
  • Silicon industry: Organic silicon, polycrystalline silicon
  • Petroleum and petrochemical: Oil and gas, ethylene, trimerization and etc.
  • Fine Chemicals: Methane oxide, epoxy ethane, aniline, PTMEG, BDO, carbon fiber, POM, acetic acid, styrene, rubber, crude benzol refining
  • Others: Metallurgy, paper-making, water treatment, biological, pharmaceutical, food and beverage etc.

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.
