The XDB502 liquid level transmitter is an essential tool for various industries, including steel, chemical, paper, wastewater treatment, water supply, thermal, power, food, and non-ferrous metals. It operates by utilizing a pressure transmitter to measure liquid levels in diverse environments, withstanding high and low temperatures, corrosion, vibration, and shock. In this article, we'll discuss how the XDB502 transmitter works, its applications, and installation tips.
How Does the XDB502 Liquid Level Transmitter Measure Liquid Levels?
The pressure transmitter works directly in contact with the medium being measured. Its performance depends not only on product quality but also on optimized engineering design, proper model configuration, and correct on-site maintenance.
Apart from measuring pressure, the pressure transmitter can be used for various purposes, such as measuring flow using a differential pressure transmitter and measuring liquid level using liquid pressure.
In a static liquid, the pressure (P) at a point in the liquid is directly proportional to the distance (h) from that point to the liquid surface. The relationship can be expressed as P = ρgh, where ρ is the medium density and g is the acceleration due to gravity.
Installation and Usage in Static Water
When measuring the liquid level of a static fluid in an open container, vertically insert the level transmitter into the bottom of the container. Secure the cable connecting the transmitter and the junction box at the open end of the container.
If the medium has a high viscosity (e.g., in a wastewater tank), consider adding a sleeve or bracket to ensure the transmitter can be inserted into the bottom of the container.
For outdoor installations, place the transmitter's junction box in a well-ventilated and dry area, away from direct sunlight and rain. This precaution prevents the shell from overheating or water ingress, which could damage the internal circuit board.
The XDB502 liquid level transmitter is a versatile and reliable tool used across various industries for measuring liquid levels. Its accurate measurements are crucial for maintaining operational efficiency and safety in many processes. By following the aforementioned installation tips and ensuring proper maintenance, you can ensure the longevity and reliable performance of your XDB502 transmitter.
