High precision Flow Transmitter for sanitary applications
The PD340 Flow Transmitter from PROCES-DATA is an electromagnetic precision flowmeter for the volumetric measurement of liquids that are electrically conductive. The transmitter can be used in applications where a hygienic design is required.
The PD340 is the transducer of choice in industries where the highest standards in sanitation, hygiene, accuracy and reliability are of paramount importance. Industrial sectors ranging across the Dairy industry, Brewing Industry, Soft Drinks and Food, Animal Feeding, Potable Water, through to non-hygienic industries, where accurate measurement of a wide variety of conductive liquid chemicals is required.
One reason for its evolved popularity is because the transmitter offers such a wide versatility of usage. In its simplest form, it can act purely as a standalone flow transducer producing volumetric pulses or a 4-20 mA flow rate signal.
However, as standard, it can also be utilised as a complete batch controller and even act as a limit switch for a number of direct or derived local measurements.
The rugged construction of the transmitter also makes it suitable for installations where solid particles are present in the liquid.
When PROCES-DATA released the first generation of the PD340 Flow Transmitter in the early eighties, it was nothing but a revolution on the sanitary flowmeter marketplace.
Before PD340, mechanical flowmeters, developed for non-hygienic applications, were commonly used to measure the flow of milk, beer, wine, and other liquids in the food industry. They were difficult to clean, a lot of maintenance was required to keep them in operation, and their life time was short.
The PD340 was the first flowmeter with no moving parts, developed especially with sanitary applications in dairies, breweries, and other food industry in mind.
Due to its unique, square-tube design, the PD340 was, and still is, the only meter on the market, which can be calibrated on water, and still maintain its high precision, even when measuring liquids with a different viscosity, without the need for being recalibrated on the actual liquid. Furthermore, the compact design, with metering head, electronics and terminal box for wiring connection in one integrated unit, makes installation fast and easy.
The PD340 is used in a variety of process applications within the food industry, such as in dairies, breweries, or fish processing industry, as well as on mobile tankers for collecting or distributing milk, beer, wine, animal feed, or chemicals, where the PD340 is the core component in approved metering systems.
