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.
