Common Configurations for the ABB LWT300 Series Guided Waver Radar Transmitter

Storage tanks,
liquid or solid.
Agitated tank
with stilling well.
The ABB LWT300 Series level transmitter can be used on a wide variety of liquid and dry storage tank configurations, such as agitated tanks with and without stilling wells, horizontal cylinder tanks, plastic tanks, and tanks with external chambers. The instrument uses LevelExpert™, a built-in intelligence to differentiate between the actual level and other false signals.

The ABB LWT300 Guided Wave Radar transmitters are equipped with on-board diagnostics that can be used for safety monitoring, improved reliability, downtime reduction, and performance verification.

The LWT300 series addresses several industries such as oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, power generation, water and wastewater, pulp and paper, and marine. To meet these challenging applications, this series of instruments offers a wide range of configurations.

USE ABB MODEL LWT310 FOR LIQUIDS

Horizontal tanks.
The LWT300 series is comprised of the LWT310 and LWT320. The LWT310 fits in a 19 mm (¾ in) NPT interface and is offered in a flanged version.

USE ABB MODEL LWT320 FOR SOLIDS

The LWT320 fits in a 38 mm (1 ½ in) NPT interface and is offered in a flanged version.

For solids applications, the LWT320 is recommended since it can withstand a higher pull force. The LWT320 is also useful for applications having a 38 mm (1 ½ in) NPT interface.

The Jordan Mark 75 Control Valve

The Jordan Valve Mark 75 wafer-style control valve provides you strong advantages in pricing, weight, capacity, and ease of maintenance. The wafer body means lower weight and size, which lowers cost. The Mark 75's lighter weight means you spend less time on installation and support.

The wafer-style body and sliding gate combination gives you an operating Cv range from 8 to 600 for outstanding control. The Mark 75 also makes  180° rotation easier, as well as reversing of function and changing actuation because of its T-slot design.

JORDAN MARK 75 CONTROL VALVE HIGHLIGHTS


  • Shorter stroke length than globe or cage designs
  • Straight-through flow
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Easy installation between flanges with wafer body
  • High flow rates
  • Self cleaning, self lapping seats
  • Reduced noise compared to conventional globe/ cage valves
  • More resistant to cavitation / flashing with straight through, wafer design

Installed in a broad range of gas, chemical and steam applications all over the world, Jordan control valves have been providing unparalleled benefits to industrial manufacturers for over fifty years.
