Non-Clogging Submersible Pressure Transducer For Wastewater Lift Stations

Wastewater lift stations, or pumping stations, are an integral part in the transportation and eventual treatment of wastewater and other used water. Wastewater is commonly transported through piping systems, using gravity to move the water from one location to another. Using gravity helps keep costs down during transportation. However, gravity cannot be used when the wastewater needs to be transported to a higher elevation. This is where lift stations come in. There are three main components of a lift station: Wet well – This is a single tank, located underground, where the wastewater is held until it is ready to

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

Lift Station Measurement With The PiloTREK

A wastewater lift station can be a very essential part of wastewater treatment. A lift station is essentially a pumping station that moves wastewater from a lower elevation to a higher elevation. A big benefit of using a lift station is the amount of money saved from not having to dig for sewer pipes Our partners at Nivelco had a customer in West Texas that needed continuous measurement of the level in their 30 ft deep wells containing stormwater and trash (during heavy rains, especially in the winter months, large volumes of trash wind up in the lift station inlet

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

A More Economical New Planar Antenna Versions In The Pilotrek Family

[siteorigin_widget class=”TTrust_Spacer”][/siteorigin_widget] GENERAL NIVELCO Process Control Co. is pleased to announce the launch of the new planar antenna version of the PiloTREK Pulse Radar Level Transmitter family These new versions are the most affordable members of the PiloTREK range while maintaining the advantageous features of NIVELCO’s non-contact microwave radar transmitter family, and what is more, in some cases offering better parameters. The new planar antenna type has a black PP integrated housing and is available with 10 m or 16 m measuring range. It has standard 4-20mA +HART® output, so can be used in HART® multidrop loops with the help
