Process Refractometers Improve Production and Quality of Phosphoric Acid Production

Phosphoric Acid Production
Phosphoric acid is an important product used in industrial applications such as the manufacture of agricultural phosphate fertilizers, detergents, pesticides, metal coating, etc. Due to its non-toxic and mildly acidic nature, phosphoric acid is also used in other applications including food flavoring, soft drinks, pharmaceuticals, dental products, cosmetics, and skin care products.

Phosphoric acid is produced by mining the naturally occurring phosphate rock and processing it via a wet process or a thermal process. The concentration of the acids during the wet process can be measured inline with the process refractometers, such as those manufactured by K-Patents.

To learn more about where and how these refractometers are used in wet process phosphoric acid production, visit the PSI Controls web page.

Wiring the AMETEK Drexelbrook Universal IV RF Admittance/Capacitance Continuous Level Measurement System


The video above describes how to wire the Drexelbrook Universal IV  Continuous Level Measurement System.

The Universal IV level system is the most advanced RF continuous level measurement system available. It includes worldwide hazardous location approval and is immune to vapor, dust and foam interference as well as to tank obstructions such as nozzles, ladders, pipes and agitators. The Universal IV features standard display/keypad, auto-ranging capabilities, local or remote installation, as well as state of the art measurement technology providing unmatched stability and accuracy. It is ideal for a wide array of level applications in industries such as oil and gas refining, water and wastewater along with the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.

Drexelbrook Universal IV
The Pro Model
integrates the RF Admittance technology with the versatility of Cote-Shield technology.  The Cote-Shield technology is designed to ignore coatings on the probe and measurement span of 1" to 800'. 

The Lite Model is the entry level RF Capacitance measurement system without Cote-Shield capabilities, can be used in non-coating conductive liquids and insulated coating applications where Cote-Shield is not required and offers a level measurement range up to 20' typically.

Universal IV RF Continuous Level Measurement System Features
  • Easy one-time calibration
  • Low cost of ownership, no maintenance and no moving parts to wear out
  • Immune to tank obstructions such as nozzles, ladders, pipes and agitators
  • Available as intrinsically safe systems
  • Output: 4-20 mAdc, HART. Compatible with HART.
  • Supply voltage: 13-30 VDC, 2 wire loop powered
