Filter monitoring is really a core task of differential pressure gauges ? the differential pressure increases when the filter becomes clogged. The measuring instruments thus signal once the filter should be cleaned or replaced. The efficiency of such a solution could be illustrated by the exemplory case of WIKA pressure gauges of the DELTA-line series in water treatment.
With microswitch and operating display ? the WIKA model DPGS40 differential pressure gauge enables safe filter monitoring.
In the water industry, reverse osmosis is really a widely used process to separate water from unwanted substances. ไดอะแฟรม ซีล use semi-permeable membranes.
For filter monitoring, an international solution provider for the treating drinking, industrial and wastewater uses WIKA model DPGS40 differential pressure gauges in its plants in Germany. The instrument measures the pressure on both sides of the membrane.
Timely intervention at the filter
As well as the on-site display of the differential pressure, the pressure gauge has an integrated microswitch. เพรสเชอร์เกจ sends a warning signal to the control centre whenever a defined limit value is reached. This enables the operator to set up for timely cleaning or replacement of the filter. Because of its mechanical measuring principle, the filter monitoring also functions reliably in the event of a power failure.
Continuous monitoring
Prompt intervention at the filter is necessary for two reasons. Firstly: It prevents possible contamination of the water. Secondly: The operator saves energy through continuous filter monitoring. The more fouled a filter is, the harder the pump has to work for the desired media flow.
Integrated working pressure indication
The customer find the DELTA-line pressure gauge for filter monitoring for yet another reason ? because of the integrated working pressure indication. These details is essential to the plant manager because it allows him to draw conclusions about the respective pump performance. To acquire this information minus the two-in-one solution, he would otherwise have had to set up an additional measuring location.
Further measuring requirements
In addition to filter monitoring, the differential pressure gauges of the DELTA-line series are ideal for tasks in level and flow measurement. In various versions, they cover a variety of applications. DPGx instruments can be found with analogue signal output or more to two microswitches. All have ATEX approval. Gleam variant with SIL certification and DNV-GL approval for marine applications.
