Filter monitoring is a core task of differential pressure gauges ? the differential pressure increases when the filter becomes clogged. The measuring instruments thus signal when the filter has to be cleaned or replaced. The efficiency of this type of solution can 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. The corresponding filter systems use semi-permeable membranes.
For filter monitoring, a global 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 comes with an integrated microswitch. This sends a warning signal to the control centre whenever a defined limit value is reached. This permits the operator to set up for timely cleaning or replacement of the filter. Due to its mechanical measuring principle, the filter monitoring also functions reliably in the event of a power failure.
Prompt intervention at the filter is necessary for just two reasons. Firstly: ไดอะแฟรม 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 required media flow.
Integrated working pressure indication
The customer find the DELTA-line pressure gauge for filter monitoring for just one more reason ? because of the integrated working pressure indication. These details is essential to the plant manager since it allows him to draw conclusions concerning the respective pump performance. To acquire this information without the two-in-one solution, he’d otherwise have had to create an additional measuring location.
Further measuring requirements
As well as filter monitoring, the differential pressure gauges of the DELTA-line series are ideal for tasks in level and flow measurement. In different versions, they cover a wide range of applications. DPGx instruments are available 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.
An overview of most instruments in the DELTA-line series are available in our flyer. Further technical home elevators the products can be found in the pressure gauge and contact pressure gauge product lines on the WIKA website. If you have any questions, your contact will gladly help you.
