How to improve the service life of smart pressure transmitters

If you want the smart pressure transmitter to operate for a long time, be sure to do the following:

1. Tour inspection

Check the meter to indicate the situation, whether there is any abnormality, see if he is within the specified range; some transmitters do not have on-site instructions, go to the control room to see its secondary indication. If there is any debris around the instrument or if there is dust on the surface of the instrument, it should be removed and cleaned in time. There are false leakage and corrosion between the instrument and process interface, the pressure guiding tube and each valve.

2. Regular inspection

For some instruments that do not need to be inspected daily, it is necessary to check regularly. Regular zero check, because the transmitter has a secondary valve or three valve group, five valve group, so zero check is very convenient, does not require too much time. However, the transmitter used in the control system, regardless of the inspection time, still needs to change the automatic to manual control, so the zero return period of this instrument can be longer. Since these inspections require the removal of street inspection equipment, it is cumbersome, so if there is no abnormality, the inspection period can be longer.

How to improve the service life of smart pressure transmitters

1. Regular discharge, condensate and venting.

2. Regularly purge the pressure pipe of the easily blocked medium, and fill the isolation liquid.

3. Regularly check the transmitter parts intact, no serious corrosion and damage; the nameplate and logo are clear and correct; the fasteners should not be loose, the connectors are in good contact, and the terminal wiring is firm.

4. Regular on-site measurement of the line, including whether the input and output circuits are intact, whether the line is disconnected, short-circuited, and whether the insulation is reliable.

5. When the transmitter is running, its housing must be well grounded. The transmitter used to protect the system should have measures to prevent power failure, short circuit, or open circuit.

6. In the winter season, the instrument should be inspected for the source and pipeline insulation and heating, so as not to damage the source pipeline or the measuring components of the transmitter.

Beyond this, you should pay attention to:

1. Prevent the transmitter from coming into contact with corrosive or overheated media;

2. Prevent dross from depositing in the conduit;

3. When measuring the liquid pressure, the pressure tap should be opened on the side of the process pipe to avoid sedimentation;

4. When measuring the gas pressure, the pressure tap should be opened at the top of the process pipe, and the transmitter should also be installed in the upper part of the process pipe so that the accumulated liquid can be easily injected into the process pipe;

5. The pressure guiding tube should be installed in a place with small temperature fluctuations;

6. When measuring steam or other high-temperature medium, it is necessary to add a condenser such as a buffer tube (coil), and the operating temperature of the transmitter should not exceed the limit;

7. When freezing occurs in winter, the transmitter installed outside must adopt anti-freezing measures to prevent the liquid in the pressure inlet from expanding due to the volume of ice, resulting in damage;

8. When measuring the liquid pressure, the installation position of the intelligent pressure transmitter should avoid the impact of the liquid (water hammer phenomenon), so as to avoid the sensor over-voltage damage;

9. When wiring, pass the cable through the waterproof connector (accessory) or the winding tube and tighten the sealing nut to prevent rainwater and the like from leaking into the transmitter housing through the cable.
