The KENCO Magna-Site is a magnetic level gauge used to determine the volume of liquid contained within a tank. Because the Magna-Site eliminates the need for glass, high pressure applications and hazardous locations are protected from the danger of a chemical spill due to glass failure.
The KENCO Magna-Site utilizes three major components: the gauge housing chamber, the magnetic float, and the magnetic flag assembly (Indicator).
The gauge housing chamber is typically mounted adjacent to the side of the tank. It is constructed to withstand the same temperatures and pressures as the tank itself. It is equipped with the appropriate tank mounting connections for easy installation and to allow equalization of liquid level in tank and gauge.
Inside the gauge housing chamber is the magnetic float, which contains radially-positioned magnets to provide a 360 degree magnetic flux field. Each float is internally weighted based on specific gravity so that the liquid level in the gauge coincides with the location of the magnets inside the float.
Attached to the gauge housing chamber is the magnetic flag assembly. This is the visual means of liquid level indication for the KENCO Magna-Site. The assembly is made up of a series of bicolored, fluorescent flags. As the magnetic float rises and falls with the liquid level in the gauge housing chamber, a magnet embedded in each flag reacts to the 360 degree magnetic flux of the float. This magnetic interaction causes each flag to rotate 180 degrees. The flags below the magnetic flux of the float will flip to fluorescent green, while those flags above the float level remain bright white. Other colors are available upon request (red/white, black/yellow, blue/white).
When your application priorities are safety, visibility, and accuracy, the KENCO Magna-Site is the low-maintenance, cost-effective solution.
The KTC chamber mounted liquid level transmitter is a continuous multi-functional magnetostrictive transmitter that provides product level to the user via Analog (4-20mA) with HART®, Modbus RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) or DDA (Direct Digital Access). Magnetostrictive technology is one of the most accurate and repeatable level technologies available to date.
The principles of magnetostriction are used to create a reliable position measurement system for use in industrial environments. Inside the sensor, a torsional strain pulse is induced in a specially designed magnetostrictive waveguide by the momentary interaction of two magnetic fields. One field comes from a magnet located inside a float which moves up and down inside the KMLG magnetic level gauge chamber. The other field is generated from a current pulse which is applied to the waveguide. The interaction between these two magnetic fields produces a strain pulse which travels at sonic speed along the sensor waveguide until the pulse is detected at the head of the transducer. The position of the moving float magnet is precisely determined by measuring the elapsed time between the application of the current pulse and the arrival of the strain pulse. As a result, a reliable position measurement system is created that is capable of providing an accurate and repeatable measurement.
