(1) General points: The sensor must have a distance of at least 0.6m from the large transmitter or motor. Since the sensor operation relies on electromagnetic fields, it is important to avoid installing the sensor near large interfering electromagnetic fields. In addition, you should carefully select the installation location to avoid vibration.
(2) Mounting position when measuring liquid: The sensor should be installed to ensure that the liquid is full, so that the influence of density change on measurement accuracy can be reduced. When the process piping needs to be cleaned, the installation location should ensure that the liquid is completely emptied. In order not to accumulate gas inside the sensor, avoid installing the sensor at the highest end of the piping system.
(3) Mounting position when measuring gas:
In order not to collect liquid inside the sensor, the point of installation at the pipe should be avoided.
(4) Installation direction: The requirements of the process and the position of the process piping have been determined to determine the installation direction of most sensors. Although the installation angle of the sensor does not affect the flowmeter operation, the following recommendations should be considered as much as possible:
---- (a) When measuring liquid, the sensor housing should be installed face down to avoid air accumulation in the flow tube;
---- (b) When measuring gas, the sensor casing should be installed upwards to avoid condensation of condensed water in the flow tube;
---- (c) When measuring liquid slurry, the sensor should be installed vertically, like a flag, to avoid particles accumulating in the flow tube, the process medium should flow from bottom to top to avoid jet flow.
(5) Flow direction: The sensor can accurately measure the flow regardless of the flow direction. Generally, the sensor uses arrows to indicate the normal flow direction of the fluid.
