How to introduce a pressure transmitter into the process


In this session we are going to discuss about how to introduce a pressure transmitter into the process.Follow the procedures below to introduce process pressure into the impulse piping and transmitter.

 Differential Pressure Transmitters

1) Open the low pressure and high pressure tap valves to fill the impulse piping with process liquid.
2) Slowly open the high pressure stop valve to fill the transmitter pressure-detector section with process liquid.
3) Close the high pressure stop valve.
4) Gradually open the low pressure stop valve and completely fill the transmitter pressure-detector section with process liquid.
5) Close the low pressure stop valve.
6) Gradually open the high pressure stop valve. At this time, equal pressure is applied to the low and high pressure sides of the transmitter.
7) Check that there are no liquid leaks in the impulse piping, 3-valve manifold, transmitter, or other components.

Gauge/Absolute Pressure Transmitters

1) Open the tap valve (main valve) to fill the impulse piping with process fluid.
2) Gradually open the stop valve to introduce process fluid into the transmitter pressure-detector section.
3) Confirm that there is no pressure leak in the impulse piping, transmitter, or other components.

Hey! do you want know about the calibration procedure of pressure transmitter?
