  • 9. CHAPTER-1INTRODUCTIONCompany Profile:Atul Limited is a member of the Lalbhai Group, one of the oldest business houses in India.Today, Atul is one of Indias largest integrated chemical companies, with a turnover of Rs 1500crore. The Company is rated among the top five global producers in several niche chemicals; itserves a number of industries in India, as well as around the world, in the fields of aerospace,automobiles, agriculture, construction, fragrance and flavors, and paper and textiles.History:ATUL, nestled within the green and tranquil environs, is one of the largest chemical complexesof its kind in Asia, a dream of a farsighted and enlightened industrialists, the late ShriKasturbhaiLalbhai.The story of ATUL began in 1945, when Shri KasturbhaiLalbhai met Mr. Sidney C Moodey, the nthe President of American Cyanamid, and the idea of setting up a Dyestuff unit in India wasconceived. This was the time when the independence moment in India has reached acrescendo, and the desire to be self- reliant was widely prevalent. Shri KasturbhaiLalbhai saw, inthis proposal, self-reliance for India in Dyes on the one hand, and backward integration of hisbusinesses of textiles on the other. It was Shri B K Muzumdar, a scholar and economist, whotranslated Shri KasturbhaiLalbhai’s vision in to reality.In 1947, ATUL, meaning ‘Incomparable’, was set up on bank of the river Par, in Valsad District inGujarat, 200km north of Mumbai. The first manufacturing plant was inaugurated by India’s firstPrime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. From a modest beginning with few dyes, ATUL ltd hastoday emerged as a chemical giant, manufacturing an extensive range of dyes, Agrochemicals,Basic chemicals, Bulk drugs, Speciality chemical, Polymers, Pharmaceuticals and Intermediatesthereof.
  • 10. Over the years ATUL joined hands with American Cyanamid Imperical Chemical Industries (ICI),saw spun off to Zeneca and Ciba-Geigy to promote Cyanamid India, Atic Industries and Cibatulltd respectively. In 1995, Zeneca diversted its shareholding in Atic to ATUL thereby Broadeningthe product range of Dyes in ATUL. In 1999, Cibatul also merged with ATUL. A giant chemicalcomplex, spread over 1200 acres of afforested land, was once a barren and backward area. Thecomplex provides direct employment to about 2700 people.Atul is one of Indias largest integrated chemical companies and among the top five globalproducers of several niche chemicals. The Company caters to the aerospace, automobiles,agriculture, construction, fragrance and flavors, and paper and textiles industries. Atul producesover 700 diverse products through its seven business divisions:1)Aromatics2)Colors3)Crop Protection4)Floras5)Pharma& Inters6)PolymersWe at the Atul Limited are placed in Colors (CO) Division for undergoing our UG level Project.Colors (CO) Division:Colors division is the largest business division of ATUL ltd, manufacturing a wide range ofdyestuffs for the textiles, leather, paper, wool and silk industries. The CO division is one of theleading supplier of dyestuffs in India and export nearly 55% of its production to more than 75countries worldwide. It has a wide range of over 350 dyes.The division manufacturing operation started with sulphur dyes in 1952. In quick succession,other classes of dyes were added to the product range making ATUL as a pioneer in its field ofbusiness.
  • 11. Atic Industries ltd, a 50:50 joint venture between ATUL ltd and Zeneca plc was established in1955. Off late 1995, when Zeneca decided to diversted its textile colors business worldwide,ATUL bought over Zeneca’s stake in Atic Industries. Subsequently in the same year, Aticindustries was amalgamated in to ATUL and the integrated dyestuff business was formed underthe umbrella of CO division.The range of dyes offered are:*Acid dyes *Dye intermediates*Azoic coupling components *Fluorescent brightening agents*Azoic developing components *Reactive dyes*Disperse dyes *Sulphur dyes*Direct dyes *Vat dyesThe Colors Division has received a highest export award for a large scale unit(2002-03) byDyestuff Manufacturer’s Association of India.We also have received ISO 9001 Certificate. We are a member of ETAD.Besides India, major market for colors are Germany, USA, Bangladesh, UK, Switzerland, China,Turkey, Mauritania, Brazil, Hong Kong, Egypt, Italy, Spain and Australia.
  • 12. CHAPTER-2 TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTWhat is temperature?Temperature is a measure of the average heat or thermal energy of the particles in a substance.Temperature does not depend on the size or type of object.The sensors used for measuring temperature are listed below Different types of thermometers Thermocouples Resistance thermometer Pyrometers etc.They are used according to their range.Temperature measures in different four scales named Fahrenheit, Centigrade, Kelvin, Rankineand Reaumur.In industries most commonly temperature measures in Fahrenheit and Centigrade.
  • 13. 1) RESISTANCETEMPERATURE DETECTOR: Resistance thermometers, also called resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), are sensors used to measure temperature by correlating the resistance of the RTD element with temperature. Most RTD elements consist of a length of fine coiled wire wrapped around a ceramic or glass core. The element is usually quite fragile, so it is often placed inside a sheathed probe to protect it. The RTD element is made from a pure material whose resistance at various temperatures has been documented. The material has a predictable change in resistance as the temperature changes; it is this predictable change that is used to determine temperature. A RTD Sensing element consists of a wire coil or deposited film of pure metal. The element’s resistance increases with temperature in a known and repeatable manner. RTD’s exhibit excellent accuracy over a wide temperature range. Temperature range: -200 to 700ºC Sensitivity: the voltage drop across an RTD provides a much larger output than a thermocouple. Linearity: Platinum and copper RTD’s produce a more linear response than thermocouples or thermistors. RTD non-linearities can be corrected through proper design of resistive bridge networks. The most commonly used element material is platinum with a resistance of 100 ohms @ 0ºC and a temperature coefficient (Alpha) of 0.00385 ohms/ohm/ºC. Other element materials also used are copper, nickel and nickel-iron. Platinum elements predominate because of their wider range, and because platinum is the most repeatable and stable of all metals. Tolerance of PT100 Ω (Alpha = 0.003850 @ 0ºC)
  • 14. Connection / Wiring details:Different connection Types. Standard Color code; A is white, B is red. Basic connection where the lead is short. No lead wire2 wire compensation, introducing an error into the reading. Most common connection 3 wire, the instrument measures the lead wire resistance in the B legs and allows for this in its reading.3 wire 4 wire connection is the most accurate measurement.4 wire The instrument measures the lead resistance of all four lead wires removing these values for its reading
  • 15. Duplex Duplex 3 wire RTD connection as per single RTD butRTD two individual element windings.Classes OfRTD :TOLERANCE CLASS A BTOLERANCE 0.06% 0.12%RANGE -200°C to 650°C -200°C to 850°CRTD Element Types:There are three main categories of RTD sensors. Thin Film Wire-Wound Coiled Elements Thin Film Elements have a sensing element that is formed by depositing a very thin layer of resistive material, normal platinum, on a ceramic substrate. This layer is usually just 10 to 100 angstroms (1 to 10 nanometers) thick. This film is then coated with an epoxy or glass that helps protect the deposited film and also acts as a strain relief for the external lead-wires. Disadvantages of this type are that they are not as stable as their wire wound or coiled counterparts. They also can only be used over a limited temperature range due to the different expansion rates of the substrate and resistive deposited giving a "strain gauge" effect that can be seen in the resistive temperature coefficient. These elements work with temperatures to 300 °C.
  • 16. Wire-wound Elements can have greater accuracy, especially for wide temperature ranges. Thecoil diameter provides a compromise between mechanical stability and allowing expansion ofthe wire to minimize strain and consequential drift. The sensing wire is wrapped around an insulating mandrel or core. The winding core can be round or flat, but must be an electrical insulator. The coefficient of thermal expansion of the winding core material is matched to the sensing wire to minimize any mechanical strain. This strain on the element wire will result in a thermal measurement error. The sensing wire is connected to a larger wire, usually referred to as the element lead or wire. This wire is selected to be compatible with the sensing wire so that the combination does not generate an emf that would distort the thermal measurement. These elements work with temperatures to 660 °C.
  • 17. Coiled elements have largely replaced wire-wound elements in industry. This design hasa wire coil which can expand freely over temperature, held in place by some mechanicalsupport which lets the coil keep its shape. This “strain free” design allows the sensingwire to expand and contract free of influence from other materials; in this respect it issimilar to the SPRT, the primary standard upon which ITS-90 is based, while providingthe durability necessary for industrial use. The basis of the sensing element is a smallcoil of platinum sensing wire. This coil resembles a filament in an incandescent lightbulb. The housing or mandrel is a hard fired ceramic oxide tube with equally spacedbores that run transverse to the axes. The coil is inserted in the bores of the mandreland then packed with a very finely ground ceramic powder. This permits the sensingwire to move while still remaining in good thermal contact with the process. TheseElements works with temperatures to 850 °C.
  • 18. The current international standard which specifies tolerance, and the temperature-to-electricalresistance relationship for platinum resistance thermometers is IEC 60751:2008, ASTM E1137 isalso used in the United States. By far the most common devices used in industry have a nominalresistance of 100 ohms at 0 °C, and are called Pt100 sensors (Pt is the symbol for platinum).The sensitivity of a standard 100 ohm sensor is a nominal 0.00385 ohm/°C. RTDs with asensitivity of 0.00375 and 0.00392 ohm/°C as well as a variety of others are also available.Advantages Of RTD: High accuracy Low drift Wide operating range Suitability for precision applicationsLimitations Of RTD:RTDs in industrial applications are rarely used above 660 °C. At temperatures above 660 °C itbecomes increasingly difficult to prevent the platinum from becoming contaminated byimpurities from the metal sheath of the thermometer. This is why laboratory standardthermometers replace the metal sheath with a glass construction. At very low temperatures,say below -270 °C (or 3 K), because there are very few photons, the resistance of an RTD ismainly determined by impurities and boundary scattering and thus basically independent oftemperature. As a result, the sensitivity of the RTD is essentially zero and therefore not useful.Compared to thermistors, platinum RTDs are less sensitive to small temperature changes andhave a slower response time. However, thermistors have a smaller temperature range andstability.
  • 19. 2) THERMOCOUPLE:One of the most common industrial thermometer is the thermocouple. A thermocouple is adevice consisting of two different conductors (usually metal alloys) that produce a voltage,proportional to a temperature difference, between either ends of the two conductors.Thermocouples are a widely used type of temperature sensor for measurement and controland can also be used to convert a temperature gradient into electricity. They are inexpensive,interchangeable, are supplied with standard connectors, and can measure a wide range oftemperatures. In contrast to most other methods of temperature measurement,thermocouples are self powered and require no external form of excitation. The main limitationwith thermocouples is accuracy and system errors of less than one degree Celsius(C) can bedifficult to achieve.Any junction of dissimilar metals will produce an electric potential related to temperature.Thermocouples for practical measurement of temperature are junctions of specific alloys whichhave a predictable and repeatable relationship between temperature and voltage. Differentalloys are used for different temperature ranges. Properties such as resistance to corrosion mayalso be important when choosing a type of thermocouple. Where the measurement point is farfrom the measuring instrument, the intermediate connection can be made by extension wireswhich are less costly than the materials used to make the sensor. Thermocouples are usuallystandardized against a reference temperature of 0 degrees Celsius; practical instruments useelectronic methods of cold-junction compensation to adjust for varying temperature at theinstrument terminals. Electronic instruments can also compensate for the varyingcharacteristics of the thermocouple, and so improve the precision and accuracy ofmeasurements.Thermocouples are widely used in science and industry; applications include temperaturemeasurement forkilns, gas turbine exhaust, diesel engines, and other industrial processes.
  • 20. A thermocouple measuring circuit with a heat source, cold junction and a measuringinstrument.Principle of operation:In 1821, the German–Estonian physicist Thomas JohannSeebeck discovered that when anyconductor is subjected to a thermal gradient, it will generate a voltage. This is now known asthe Thermoelectric effect or Seebeck effect. Any attempt to measure this voltage necessarilyinvolves connecting another conductor to the "hot" end. This additional conductor will thenalso experience the temperature gradient, and develop a voltage of its own which will opposethe original. Fortunately, the magnitude of the effect depends on the metal in use. Using adissimilar metal to complete the circuit creates a circuit in which the two legs generatedifferent voltages, leaving a small difference in voltage available for measurement. Thatdifference increases with temperature, and is between 1 and 70 microvolts per degree Celsius(µV/°C) for standard metal combinations.The voltage is not generated at the junction of the two metals of the thermocouple but ratheralong that portion of the length of the two dissimilar metals that is subjected to a temperaturegradient. Because both lengths of dissimilar metals experience the same temperature gradient,the end result is a measurement of the difference in temperature between the thermocouplejunction and the reference junction.
  • 21. Types Of Thermocouple:Certain combinations of alloys have become popular as industry standards. Selection of thecombination is driven by cost, availability, convenience, melting point, chemical properties,stability, and output. Different types are best suited for different applications. They are usuallyselected based on the temperature range and sensitivity needed. Thermocouples with lowsensitivities (B, R, and S types) have correspondingly lower resolutions. Other selection criteriainclude the inertness of the thermocouple material, and whether it is magnetic or not. Standardthermocouple types are listed below with the positive electrode first, followed by the negativeelectrode.K Type:Type K (chromel {90 percent nickel and 10 percent chromium} – alumel {95% nickel, 2%manganese, 2% aluminium and 1% silicon}) is the most common general purpose thermocouplewith a sensitivity of approximately 41 µV/°C, chromel positive relative to alumel. It isinexpensive, and a wide variety of probes are available in its −200 °C to +1350 °C / -328 °F to+2462 °F range. Type K was specified at a time when metallurgy was less advanced than it istoday, and consequently characteristics may vary considerably between samples. One of theconstituent metals, nickel, is magnetic; a characteristic of thermocouples made with magneticmaterial is that they undergo a deviation in output when the material reaches its Curie point;this occurs for type K thermocouples at around 350 °C .E Type:Type E (chromel–constantan) has a high output (68 µV/°C) which makes it well suited tocryogenic use. Additionally, it is non-magnetic.J Type:Type J (iron–constantan) has a more restricted range than type K (−40 to +750 °C), but highersensitivity of about 55 µV/°C. The Curie point of the iron (770 °C) causes an abrupt change inthe characteristic, which determines the upper temperature limit.N Type:Type N (Nicrosil–Nisil) (nickel-chromium-silicon/nickel-silicon) thermocouples are suitable foruse between −270 °C and 1300 °C owing to its stability and oxidation resistance. Sensitivity isabout 39 µV/°C at 900 °C, slightly lower compared to type K.
  • 22. Platinum Type Thermocouple:Types B, R, and S thermocouples use platinum or a platinum–rhodium alloy for each conductor.These are among the most stable thermocouples, but have lower sensitivity than other types,approximately 10 µV/°C. Type B, R, and S thermocouples are usually used only for hightemperature measurements due to their high cost and low sensitivity.B Type:Type B thermocouples use a platinum–rhodium alloy for each conductor. One conductorcontains 30% rhodium while the other conductor contains 6% rhodium. These thermocouplesare suited for use at up to 1800 °C. Type B thermocouples produce the same output at 0 °C and42 °C, limiting their use below about 50 °C.R Type:Type R thermocouples use a platinum–rhodium alloy containing 13% rhodium for oneconductor and pure platinum for the other conductor. Type R thermocouples are used up to1600 °C.S Type:Type S thermocouples are constructed using one wire of 90% Platinum and 10% Rhodium (thepositive or "+" wire) and a second wire of 100% platinum (the negative or "-" wire). Like type R,type S thermocouples are used up to 1600 °C. In particular, type S is used as the standard ofcalibration for the melting point of gold (1064.43 °C).TType:Type T (copper–constantan) thermocouples are suited for measurements in the −200 to 350 °Crange. Often used as a differential measurement since only copper wire touches the probes.Since both conductors are non-magnetic, there is no Curie point and thus no abrupt change incharacteristics. Type T thermocouples have a sensitivity of about 43 µV/°C.CType:Type C (tungsten 5% rhenium – tungsten 26% rhenium) thermocouples are suited formeasurements in the 0 °C to 2320 °C range. This thermocouple is well-suited for vacuumfurnaces at extremely high temperatures. It must never be used in the presence of oxygen attemperatures above 260 °C.
  • 23. MType:Type M thermocouples use a nickel alloy for each wire. The positive wire (20 Alloy) contains18% molybdenum while the negative wire (19 Alloy) contains 0.8% cobalt. Thesethermocouples are used in vacuum furnaces for the same reasons as with type C. Uppertemperature is limited to 1400 °C. It is less commonly used than other types.Advantages with thermocouples: Capable of being used to directly measure temperatures up to 2600 oC. The thermocouple junction may be grounded and brought into direct contact with the material being measured.
  • 24. Disadvantages with thermocouples: Temperature measurement with a thermocouple requires two temperatures be measured, the junction at the work end (the hot junction) and the junction where wires meet the instrumentation copper wires (cold junction). To avoid error the cold junction temperature is in general compensated in the electronic instruments by measuring the temperature at the terminal block using with a semiconductor, thermistor, or RTD. Thermocouples operation are relatively complex with potential sources of error. The materials of which thermocouple wires are made are not inert and the thermoelectric voltage developed along the length of the thermocouple wire may be influenced by corrosion etc. The relationship between the process temperature and the thermocouple signal (mill volt) is not linear. The calibration of the thermocouple should be carried out while it is in use by comparing it to a nearby comparison thermocouple. If the thermocouple is removed and placed in a calibration bath, the output integrated over the length is not reproduced exactly.RTDs vs Thermocouples: Basic differences between RTDs and Thermocouples are given below: RTD THERMOCUPLE Temperature Requirement -200 to 500 °C -180 to 2,320 °C Time Response Slow Fast Size (Sheath Diameter) 3.175 to 6.35 mm 1.6 mm Accuracy And Stability High Low
  • 25. 3) DIGITAL TEMPERATURE INDICATOR:Under the category of temperature measuring instruments, we offer technically advanceddigital temperature indicators and controllers.

  • 26. CHAPTER-3 LEVEL MEASUREMENT The height of the water column, liquid and powder etc., at the desired measurement ofheight between minimum level point to maximum level point is called level.Level is measure with the help level gauges (sight glasses), other level meters etc. 1) ULTRASONIC LEVELTRANSMITTER: Measures by Reflected UltrasoundThe Ultrasonic Level Transmitter allows simple and reliable non-contact level measurement offluids in a tank, sump or other container. The microprocessor-controlled circuit generates apulse that is transmitted from the transducer face. This pulse is reflected back from the surfaceof the liquid. The "round trip" transit time is then converted into the current output, which isdirectly proportional to the fluid level.The current output (4-20mA) can power a load of up to 750 ohms.

  • 30. CHAPTER-4FLOW MEASUREMENTMeasurement of quantity which is flowing through close surface is known as flow.Basically flow measurement is classified in three categories: Instantaneous flow measurement Total flow measurement Mass flow measurement 1) MAGNETIC FLOW METER: BASIC PRINCIPLE: Faradays law of electromagnetic induction.Magnetic flow metersuse a magnetic field applied to the metering tube, which results in apotential difference proportional to the flow velocity perpendicular to the flux lines. Thepotential difference is sensed by electrodes aligned perpendicular to the flow and the appliedmagnetic field.
  • 31. The magnetic flow meter requires a conducting fluid and a non conducting pipe liner. Theelectrodes must not corrode in contact with the process fluid; some magnetic flow meters haveauxiliary transducers installed to clean the electrodes in place. The applied magnetic field ispulsed, which allows the flow meter to cancel out the effect of stray voltage in the pipingsystem. A magnetic flowmeter is a device that can measure a water-based or conductive volumetricflow with no moving parts.
  • 32. 2) VORTEX FLOW METER:Another method of flow measurement involves placing a bluff body (called a shedder bar) inthe path of the fluid. As the fluid passes this bar, disturbances in the flow called vortices arecreated. The vortices trail behind the cylinder, alternatively from each side of the bluff body.The frequency at which these vortices alternate sides is essentially proportional to the flow rateof the fluid. Inside, atop, or downstream of the shedder bar is a sensor for measuring thefrequency of the vortex shedding. This sensor is often a piezoelectric crystal, which produces asmall, but measurable, voltage pulse every time a vortex is created. Since the frequency of sucha voltage pulse is also proportional to the fluid velocity, a volumetric flow rate is calculatedusing the cross sectional area of the flow meter.The frequency is measured and the flow rate is calculated by the flowmeter electronics usingthe equation where is the frequency of the vortices, the characteristiclength of the bluff body, is the velocity of the flow over the bluff body, and is the Strouhalnumber, which is essentially a constant for a given body shape within its operating limits.Benefits:Maintenance-free due to fully welded sensor construction providing excellent stability andreliabilityContains three measuring points in one device with no extra equipment, installation or cablingcostsSaves downtime because of isolation valve, which makes an exchange of pressure sensorpossible without interrupting the process
  • 33. Easy installation because of Plug & PlayRedundant system as a dual transmitter version is available
  • 34. CHAPTER-5 PRESSURE MEASUREMENT It is defined as amount of force applied to a surface & it is measured as force per unitarea. The essentials of pressure measurement are encompassed in the above definitions &following observations.1. Pressure is independent of direction.2. Pressure is unaffected by the shape of confining boundaries.Types of pressureGauge pressure: (Kg/cm2) It is the difference between absolute and atmospheric pressure.Absolute pressure: (Kg/cm2) It is actual total pressure acting on a surface.Vacuum pressure: It is the pressure having value below zero.Static pressure: It is pressure at a particular point when the fluid is in equilibrium.Different scales of pressure: Pound per sq. in. (PSI) Pascal (Pa) Atmospheric pressure (atm) Pieze Torr mmHg kg/cm2
  • 35. 1) PRESSURE GUAGE: Most standard dial type pressure gauges use a bourdon tube-sensing element generally made of a copper alloy (brass) or stainless steel for measuring pressures 15 PSI and above. Bourdon tube gauges are widely used in all branches of industry to measure pressure and vacuum. The construction is simple yet rugged and operation does not require any additional power source.The C- shaped or spirally wound bourdon tube flexes when pressure is applied producing a rotational movement, which in turn causes the pointer to indicate the measured pressure. These gauges are generally suitable for all clean and non-clogging liquids and gaseous media. Low pressure gauges typically use an extremely sensitive and highly accurate capsule design for measuring gaseous media from as low as 15 INWC to 240 INWC (10 PSI). Digital gauges use an electronic pressure sensor to measure the pressure and then transmit it to a digital display readout. TYPES OF PRESSURE GUAGE: 1) Industrial gauges 2) Commercial gauges 3) Digital guages 4) Process gauges 5) Precision & Test gauges 6) Low pressure gauges 7) Specialty gauges CALIBRATION:Pressure gauges are either direct- or indirect-reading. Hydrostatic and elastic gauges measurepressure are directly influenced by force exerted on the surface by incident particle flux, andare called direct reading gauges. Thermal and ionization gauges read pressure indirectly bymeasuring a gas property that changes in a predictable manner with gas density.

  • 37. 2) DEAD WEIGHT PRESSURE TESTER: A dead weight tester apparatus uses known traceable weights to apply pressure to a fluid for checking the accuracy of readings from a pressure gauge. A dead weight tester (DWT) is a calibration standard method that uses a piston cylinder on which a load is placed to make an equilibrium with an applied pressure underneath the piston. Deadweight testers are so called primary standards which means that the pressure measured by a deadweight tester is defined through other quantities: length, mass and time. Typically deadweight testers are used in calibration laboratories to calibrate pressure transfer standards like electronic pressure measuring devices.
  • 38. CHAPTER-6 OTHER FIELD INSTRUMENTS1) ORIFICE PLATES & FLANGES: An orifice plate is a device used for measuring the volumetric flow rate. It uses the same principle as a Venturi nozzle, namely Bernoullis principle which states that there is a relationship between the pressure of the fluid and the velocity of the fluid. When the velocity increases, the pressure decreases and vice versa. An orifice plate is a thin plate with a hole in the middle. It is usually placed in a pipe in which fluid flows. When the fluid reaches the orifice plate, the fluid is forced to converge to go through the small hole; the point of maximum convergence actually occurs shortly downstream of the physical orifice, at the so-called vena contracta point. As it does so, the velocity and the pressure changes. Beyond the vena contracta, the fluid expands and the velocity and pressure change once again. By measuring the difference in fluid pressure between the normal pipe section and at the vena contracta, the volumetric and mass flow rates can be obtained from Bernoullis equation. There are three types of orifice plates: 1) Concentric 2) Eccentric 3) Segmental

  • 40. 2) I to P CONVERTER: "current to pressure" converter (I/P) which converts an analog signal (4-20 mA) to a proportional linear pneumatic output (3-15 psig). I To P Converters purpose is to translate the analog output from a control system into a precise, repeatable pressure value to control pneumatic actuators/operators, pneumatic valves, dampers, vanes, etc.CALIBRATION: Zero adjustment of the unit is made by turning a screw that regulates the distance between the flapper valve and the air nozzle. Span adjustment is made by varying a potentiometer, which shunts input current past the coil. An integral volume flow booster provides adequate flow capacity, resulting in fast response time and accurate control.

Available in Y or T type designs, our Strainers remove suspended grit from steam and condensate that would otherwise damage your downstream equipments with no additional pressure drop. TRAP: The duty of a steam trap is to discharge condensate while not permitting the escape of live steam. No steam system is complete without that crucial component the steam trap (or trap). This is the most important link in the condensate loop because it connects steam usage with condensate return.
  • 44. A steam trap quite literally purges condensate, (as well as air and otherincondensable gases), out of the system, allowing steam to reach its destinationin as dry a state/condition as possible to perform its task efficiently andeconomically.The pressures at which steam traps can operate may be anywhere from vacuumto well over a hundred bar. To suit these varied conditions there are manydifferent types, each having their own advantages and disadvantages.Experience shows that steam traps work most efficiently when theircharacteristics are matched to that of the application. It is imperative that the correct trap is selected to carry out a given functionunder given conditions. At first sight it may not seem obvious what theseconditions are.They may involve variations in operating pressure, heat load or condensatepressure. Steam traps may be subjected to extremes of temperature or evenwaterhammer.They may need to be resistant to corrosion or dirt. Whatever the conditions,correct steam trap selection is important to system efficiency.
  • 45. SELECTION OF STEAM TRAP: Maximum steam and condensate pressures. Operating steam and condensate pressures. Temperatures and flow rates. Whether the process is temperature controlled.
  • 46. 5) SIGHT GLASSES: A sight glass or water gauge is a transparent tube through which the operator of a tank or boiler can observe the level of liquid contained within. Industrial observational instruments have changed with industry itself. More structurally sophisticated than the water gauge, the contemporary sight glass — also called the sight window or sight port — can be found on the media vessel at chemical plants and in other industrial settings, including pharmaceutical, food, beverage and bio gas plants. Sight glasses enable operators to visually observe processes inside tanks, pipes, reactors and vessels. The modern industrial sight glass is a glass disk held between two metal frames, which are secured by bolts and gaskets, or the glass disc is fused to the metal frame during manufacture. Borosilicate glass is superior to other formulations in terms of chemical corrosion resistance and temperature tolerance, as well as transparency. Fused sight glasses are also called mechanically pre-stressed glass, because the glass is strengthened by compression of the metal ring.
  • 47. 6) SWITCHES: PRESSURE SWITCH: A pressure switch is a form of switch that makes electrical contact when a certain set pressure has been reached on its input. This is used to provide on/off switching from a pneumatic or hydraulic source. The switch may be designed to make contact either on pressure rise or on pressure fall. FLOW SWITCH: A flow switch is a mechanical device that is switched on or off in response to the flow (or lack of flow) of a liquid or a gas. Flow switches are widely used in domestic air conditioning, heating and hot-water systems. TEMPERATURE SWITCH: A temperature switch is a switch that is responsive to temperature changes. Temperature switches generally are provided with a temperature responsive element which will open or close a switch when a predetermined minimum pressure or temperature is sensed by the responsive element.
