Advanced Level Instrumentation for Any Application

Advanced Level Instrumentation for Any Application

The term industrial level measurement refers to essential measurements taken at an industrial site, manufacturing plant, processing facility, or large building requiring monitoring the level of fluids in tanks, silos, bins, pipes, or other vessels. Many industrial level transmitter and switch technologies are available depending on what kind of industry or manufacturing process is measured. 


Industrial level measurement is crucial because it helps maintain and improve a product's quality efficiently and safely, with fewer environmental concerns.


For example, to maintain a product's quality, the measurement determines the weight or volume of ingredients or whether or not a particular production process produces an acceptable level of defect-free products. Level measurement provides continuous improvement by using feedback from transmitters and switches to make changes in production processes and equipment. Industrial level measurement is crucial because it helps to maintain and improve the quality of the product. Level measurement applies to many industries, including manufacturing, agriculture, and food production.


Industrial level measurement is essential for ensuring the safety of people working in plants, factories, and other industrial settings. 


Industrial level measurement systems monitor and control industrial processes to ensure they run smoothly and safely. Level transmitters and switches are commonplace at companies that produce chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other substances that need special attention and care. Overfilling or underfilling could affect the health and welfare of workers and communities.


Industrial level measurement is essential for protecting the environment from spills and leaks of hazardous material. 


Many times the detection of a leak of hazardous material at an industrial plant cannot be done by a human being with the naked eye. Industrial level measurement is necessary to detect the possibility of dangerous environmental materials escaping into the surrounding area, ensuring that they do not seep into water sources and contaminate them.


Siemens level switches and transmitters are arguably the most advanced on the market, improving product quality, plant safety, and environmental protection. 


The Siemens approach of capacitance technology creates an appropriate level measurement method for state-of-the-art processes. These three unique features in Siemens technology support this:


  1. Inverse frequency shift applies to all Siemens capacitance instruments - a small level change creates a significant difference in frequency, providing better resolution.
  2. Active Shield for the high-end switches and continuous transmitters - Ignores process connection interference, thereby significantly improving the ability to detect the presence or absence of materials with very low dielectric constants.
  3. Sensitive Tip applied to Siemens standard point level switches - sensor Tip does not see the build-up at the process connection.


Additional features are included in level controllers like the SITRANS LT500 HydroRanger with features that improve processes, ensure safety and help the environment.


  • Wall cling reduction: Extends maintenance intervals and prevents detection of false level readings (caused by the fat ring) that can lead to messy spills.
  • Pump run-on: Runs pumps beyond their "off' setpoint for a short period to reduce sediment accumulation.
  • Pump exercise: Runs pumps if they have been inactive for some time.
  • Time to spill: Calculates the remaining time while filling/emptying before reaching an overspill/empty condition (set the time according to the application's critical condition).
  • Pump interlock: Removes a pump from rotation (by digital input). If a pump fails to start, the event is stamped and logged.
  • Pumped volume: Calculated by rate estimation or pump cycle.
  • Pump energy savings: Five peak periods supported.

Control Performance Analytics (CPA) by Siemens - Efficient Plant Optimization Using Automated Control Loop Analysis

Control Performance Analytics

As industrial process applications grow in complexity, production management goals for process safety, flexibility, and product quality become ever-more ambitious. More transparency is needed to detect the potential for optimization and process fine-tuning.

In process industries, control performance is vital for reaching production targets. The single control loop is the initial core for each process application. Studies show that about half of all control loops are not well-tuned, whether due to non-optimum parameters, manual operation, oscillating controlled systems, or mechanical issues with the control valves.

In addition, process engineers in large-scale process plants are typically in charge of hundreds of control loops. Evaluating control performance across various process states in correlation with alarms requires a lot of time and expertise. Detecting possible areas for optimization and tuning control loops is not a one-time job due to continual process changes and wear and tear on equipment.

CPA is a cloud-based managed service that enhances process data transparency and control loop optimization. Collection and analysis of plant-wide information give the customer complete control over data. Identification of control loop states comes from automatic KPI (key performance indicators) calculation, capable of identifying setpoint tracking, steady-state problems, and even static or sliding friction in-process valves. The application also allows automated analysis of new parameter sets to test the control loops without impeding plant operations.

Fixed Gas Detection Factory Service from Sensidyne and Ives Equipment

Fixed Gas Detection Factory Service

Fixed gas detectors are commonly found in large industrial facilities where explosive or noxious fumes, vapors or liquids exist.  Fixed gas detectors are used to identify significant leaks and provide an early warning of  leaking from a specific system. Relays and adjustable alarm point settings are used to configure fixed gas detection systems. Fixed gas detectors respond swiftly to atmospheric threats thanks to these settings. Opening and closing ventilation and exhaust fans, triggering visual and audio alerts, and closing valves are just a few of the functions they can do. 

Industrial safety professionals understand how critical it is to keep essential safety instruments calibrated and serviced. Infrequent sensor calibration reduces the accuracy of gas detection readings and may result in the failure to detect gas leaks, resulting in an unprotected zone. 

And now might be a good time to perform some preventative maintenance.

SITRANS LR560 Long-Range FMCW Radar Level Transmitter Improves Production, Inventory Control, and Costs at PET Container Plant

LR560

In the southeastern United States, a corporation manufactures and provides beverage containers for many bottling facilities. The company manufactures a wide range of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles in various sizes for both carbonated soft drinks and water. PET bottles are manufactured in two steps using injection molding and blow-molding equipment. 

The Level Application Challenge 

The customer requires monitoring crystalline PET plastic pellets used to produce plastic soft drink bottles in storage tanks. The density of the crystalline pellets ranges from 30 pounds per cubic foot to 56 pounds per cubic foot, and the tanks can be up to 60 feet tall. 

Level measurement for inventory control and maintaining material availability during production periods is critical. If the inventory is running low, production needs to know if they will need to swap tanks. 

The customer had previously used a plumb-bob for level measurements and had tested ultrasonic level measurement tools from a different vendor. The plumb bob cord had become a mechanical annoyance, and the customer had encountered frequent echo loss using the ultrasonic level devices due to high dust levels. 

The Level Transmitter Solution 

The customer installed a trial unit of the Siemens SITRANS LR560 radar level transmitter, as the local Siemens salesperson suggested. The LR560 transmitter offers a continuous, consistent, and low-maintenance solution for level measuring. The SITRANS LR560 unit's plug-and-play functionality is suited for most solids level monitoring applications, including those involving severe dust and high temperatures. 

Its one-of-a-kind design enables safe and straightforward programming with the intrinsically safe handheld programmer without opening the instrument's lid. 

The Results 

After a year-long trial, the customer ordered an additional nine instruments for their storage silos. 

Benefits of the SITRANS LR560

  • Time savings
    • No maintenance is required. Because the SITRANS LR560 radar transmitter is a non-contacting instrument, eliminating the risk of product contamination as well as extended delays when plumb-bob cables get caught or broken.
  • Improved process reliability
    • Continuous level measurement is an accurate time indicator of how much is in the silo. A plumb-bob cable getting stuck at a certain distance can lead to misinterpretation of the actual level. After the line gets attached, there is no level history before the last request on-demand from the instrument.
  • Easier to use
    • The SITRANS LR560 transmitter uses a quick start wizard, and no further tuning or maintenance is required.

SITRANS LR560 Unique Product Features: 

The local user interface allows for ease of configuration and setup. Since the customer only uses the removable, local display during setup, the customer can save money by moving the indicating component from unit to unit as needed. The narrow, 4-degree beam angle enables reliable depth penetration into the silo and ignores potential silo wall interference.

The SITRANS LR560 2-wire, 78 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter monitors solids in silos to a range of 100 meters or 328 feet. Its plug-and-play performance is ideal for most solids applications, including those with extreme dust and high temperatures to +392ºF. Its unique design provides safe and simple programming using the intrinsically safe handheld programmer without opening the instrument's lid.

The SITRANS LR560 transmitter includes an optional graphical local display interface (LDI) that improves setup and operation using an intuitive Quick Start Wizard and echo profile display for diagnostic support. The startup is easy using the QuickStart wizard with a few parameters required for essential operation. The SITRANS LR560 instrument measures virtually any solids material level up to a range of 328 feet.

Valve Positioners for Every Process Control Application

Valve Positioners for Every Process Control Application

The Role of Valve Positioners

As a control valve accessory and the interface between the control system and valves, the valve positioner plays a vital role in ensuring reliability and optimal performance in your process control loops. Using a valve positioning device, you can adjust the valves' opening to allow for varying flow rates, from entirely on or off to anywhere in between.

Valve positioners move a valve in the right direction by increasing or reducing the actuator's air load pressure. The position of the valve stem or shaft corresponds to the setpoint from the control system.

On linear control valves, positioners mount to the pneumatic actuator's yolk or top framework. Rotary control valves mount to the end of the shaft. For either set-up, the positioner is attached mechanically to the valve stem or valve shaft, allowing the valve position to respond to the controller's demands.

Valve Positioners from Siemens

How Often Should You Calibrate Your Toxic/Flammable Gas Detector?

Toxic Gas Detector

Reprinted with permission from the United Electric Controls Blog.

When we think of gas detector calibration and how often it must be performed, it is dependent on many variables. First and foremost is determining if a gas sensor is out of calibration.

The best way to establish this is through a “bump” or functional test using a certified standard gas mixture of known concentration. If the device is functioning properly and still measuring gas within tolerance, calibration is unnecessary. Bump testing should be performed as regular maintenance on any gas detector. With the frequency depending on the sensor technology, manufacturer recommendations, specific company standard operating procedures and environment.

The two most common sensor types are NDIR and Electrochemical.

NDIR sensors tend not to drift and are calibrated prior to shipment. They require a bump testing frequency of 6 months or less to ensure performance is consistent. Calibration is only necessary if bump testing indicates the sensor is out of specification. Electrochemical sensors tend to drift over time and require bump testing every 3 to 6 months. Calibration is recommended annually or if bump testing indicates an out of spec sensor.

Due to the technology of electrochemical sensors, they will deplete over time and more rapidly if exposed to the target gas. They can also be poisoned if exposed to certain gases. If this is a risk, then bump testing more frequently is prudent. Calibration frequency can also be dependent on gas detector relevance. If it is a portable device, then it is pragmatic to bench calibrate before utilizing it in the field. If an area is planned to have significant traffic or work, then calibration should be performed for this event.

The sensor technology industry is constantly evolving, and with that newer sensors are assuring longer periods between calibration, or potentially no need to calibrate at all.

Using newly developed materials and software, sensors may last thousands of cycles without any performance decay, even if exposed to extreme environments or chemicals. The future is markedly promising.

Remember, the most important reason to calibrate your Vanguard Gas Detector is to provide accurate gas concentration readings in order that it could prevent illness, injury or death to personnel in the area. Your Vanguard may be exposed to extreme environments such as high or low temperatures, high or low humidity, or even harsh chemicals that may require more frequent calibration.  With proper maintenance, your Vanguard can provide the safety your team deserves.
