Control of chemical levels in streams is being achieved thanks to chloride monitoring and dosing system from Bell Flow Systems.
The measurement of water quality is critical in many different industries including food and beverage, water and wastewater, oil and gas and chemical along with many others. It can be important to understand and record the levels of various parameters and also control the level of chemicals in a solution. Bell Flow Systems was approached to provide a method of monitoring the level of chloride in a stream and to transmit this data to control dosing to maintain a set concentration. Using equipment manufactured by Electro Chemical Devices, the company was able to provide a chloride sensor married with a digital transmitter offering an accurate, reliable and user friendly package.
The T80 transmitter has been designed as a universal transmitter to accept various different sensors for pH, ORP, dissolved oxygen, specific ion, conductivity or resistivity measurement and has two channels to simultaneously measure two different parameters. The transmitter allows the user to read the measured values, which can be viewed graphically, as a percentage of the 4-20mA scaling or as the measured value and also to use a 4-20mA output to control the dosing and maintain an accurate chloride concentration. Relay outputs are also used to trigger alarms when specified values were reached. The transmitter also offers Modbus and HART communications making this a versatile unit for many industrial applications. The simple menu structure and easy to read LCD display makes this very user friendly and an attractive choice for clients.
S80 sensors are being produced in many configurations from various housing materials, cable lengths and process connections. They are also available as insertion or immersion styles for use in pipes or in in the end of a stand pipe for immersion into a tank or pond. Using a stainless steel body with hygienic tri-clamp flange connections allows this system to be fitted into the pipework – maintaining the sanitary conditions of the application. Further benefits of the S80 sensor include the detachable cable for easy fitting and maintenance and also the replaceable electrode cartridge to simply replace when the cartridge is at the end of its life or for a change of application, therefore reducing cost of ownership.
