Using a Thermal Level Switch for Interface (Level) Detection

Instrument malfunctions are a common problem across a wide array of industries. For a segment of our clients, the combination of the process media and plant condition tends to cause instrument malfunctions that require maintenance. For a level switch to perform well it must avoid failure that can be caused by: Corrosion and/or “sludging” damage to the sensor caused by the soapy emulsion. High temperature Water contamination (Feedwater and cooling water often contains high mineral content, sediment, etc.) Electromagnetic interference Difficult access points limit monitoring and daily maintenance The Solution: Thermal Level Switch The Kayden Classic 800 Series Thermal Level

Displaying the 4-20 mA via Panel Meter

How to demonstrate the 4-20 mA analog output feature on the Kayden CLASSIC 800 series using a panel meter The product being used will be the Kayden CLASSIC 800 Series Thermal Dispersion Flow, Level, Interface & Temperature Switch & Transmitter The Kayden CLASSIC supports an analog output current loop (4-20 mA). This signal is an analog representation of the thermal signal as displayed on Thermal Signal Bar Graph on the Display Panel of the Kayden CLASSIC. Please note that the 4 – 20 mA output signal corresponds to the scaled thermal signal view as determined by the range (LED –

Application about leak detection with our Kayden switch

The Problem: Pumps require a form of mechanical seal, these seals will eventually break down and leak. Determining the point of failure is achieved by routine monitoring of the seal. Seal leak can be tolerated by directing the fluid into a recovery system by use of a drain line that directs the fluid into a storage container. How is it determined when the leak is occurring and to what degree? The Kayden CLASSIC 800 Series Flow, Level, Interface and Temperature Switch/Transmitter will help you determine whether or not to shut down the pump or send out a maintenance crew to

An application note about using our Kayden switch for pump monitoring and protection

What is needed in this situation? A rugged and reliable means for pump protection and monitoring. The pump (motor) when the inlet is dry / empty. Then automatically re-start the pump when the flow of the process material is restored. There is also a need for an alarm when blockages occur in the pipeline. Another need is to react to changes in the flow rate & temperature if desired. What is the problem? It is difficult to find one device that can be configured for a wide variety of flow conditions and will not require frequent maintenance To perform well

Overflow Protection Made Easy

Application Note Reliable and repeatable level control is critical in order to prevent contamination of the process upstream or downstream. The acid must not be allowed to flow into the process except when required as a chemical additive. What is the customers problem? Prior to the Kayden switch, the customer tried a competitors thermal switch and a gap switch in this application. Kayden was chosen and has succeeded where the other instruments failed: The Kayden CLASSIC 800 Series allows the customer to independently and incrementally adjust the level of heat, the range, and the (relay) set points to achieve high
