PD340 - Large flowrates - C102
With the introduction of the C 102 (4″) model, the PD 340 family of hygienic flowmeters is now able to measure flow rates up to 200 m3/h.
The meterhead and the electronics form one integrated unit, wrapped in a stainless steel housing, on which the removable terminal box is mounted.
Terminal- and Electronic Box
The electronics and the terminal box are identical with the versions used in the existing PD 340 range, so that existing plants can be upgraded to the new, larger flow transmitter without changing the control system or the wiring. The robust construction makes it ideal for harsh environment applications, such as trucks for milk collection.
PD340 - C102
PD 340 C 102 – Different, seen from the outside, but inside with same technology as the rest of the family. The new PD 340 C 102 is based on the same technology as the existing PD 340 range of meters, and its development has again been viewed with applications within dairies, breweries, and other food industry sectors in mind.
In the food industry, it is very common for the same flowmeter to be used to measure a number of different liquids, which typically have large variations in viscosity. Unlike many other flowmeters, this is no problem for the PD 340, because of its unique construction. Even when calibrated on water, it is still capable of measuring products having a much higher viscosity, such as cream or yoghurt, while still obtaining high measurement accuracy.
Like the rest of the PD 340 family, the C 102 model is able to accurately measure flow rates down to 1 % of its maximum flow rate (100:1 turndown), when the linearizing function is enabled.
Just like the rest of the products from PROCES-DATA, the PD 340 is manufactured at our factory in Silkeborg, where the product development takes place as well.
The Electronics Module, which controls both the sequence of measurement and output signal transmission, is available in either standard version or extended version.
The standard version has two pulse output signals and one logic input. The transmitter can also be directly connected to a display unit.
The extended version can be configured for two pulse outputs, exactly as with the standard version.
Alternatively, one of the pulse output signals can be changed into an analog current output signal, 4-20 mA, or the separate pulse outputs can be transformed to a combined 3-phased output signal.
See the manual for further details.
On the extended version electronics it is possible to connect the transmitter to a P-NET Fieldbus (data communication network) for central data collection or control.
