MTS Sensors receives HART certification for LP Series liquid level transmitters
MTS Sensors, a division of MTS Systems Corp., has received HART certification for its new LP Series of liquid level transmitters under the latest Interoperable Test Kit (ITK) 7.2.
The LP Series features the Tank Slayer, RefineME, Chambered, and SoClean models based on MTS Sensors’ proprietary Temposonics magnetostrictive sensing technology.
The HART output is available on either the loop-powered single loop 4-20mA output or the dual loop 4-20mA output.
The LP-Series targets hazardous area applications in the oil and gas, chemical, and mining industries as well as sanitary applications in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries.
All models in this series feature an integral display and offer intrinsically safe approval under NEC, CEC, ATEX, or IECEx.
Designed for use in aboveground bulk storage tanks, the Level Plus Tank Slayer features 3-in-1 measurement of the product level, interface level and temperature.
The analogue output features a single temperature point for indication, whereas the existing Modbus output offers up to 16 temperature points.
Tank Slayer’s ±1mm inherent accuracy makes it suitable for monitoring inventory levels of refined fuels, crude oil, fuel oil, ethanol and other valuable liquids.
Tank Slayer is complemented by the Level Plus RefineME level transmitter aimed at shorter process tanks in oil refineries, chemical plants, and mines.
RefineME has the same 3-IN-1 measurement capability but offers a wider variety of process connections, such as ANSI and DIN flanges, as well as wetted parts including stainless steel, Hastelloy C, and Teflon.
The Level Plus Chambered is especially optimised for incorporation into magnetic level gauge (MLG) systems, such as those found throughout refineries and chemical plants, as well as boilers.
The transmitter is mounted externally to the MLG to provide remote feedback in addition to the local visual measurement.
SoClean liquid level transmitters are targeted at sanitary industries, including food and beverage and pharmaceuticals.
It offers sanitary process connections with variable size tri-clamps, as well as four different mechanical end plugs to fit individual customer needs.
MTS liquid level transmitters are suitable for cleaning via steam-in-place (SIP) or clean-in-place (CIP) processes.
SoClean is offered with stainless steel and electropolished stainless steel wetted parts.
