Frac Tank Monitoring Application: Example
In this scenario, a customer was looking for the ability to monitor the level of a 500-barrel (21,000 gallon) frac tank containing a 33 % HCL solution, among other trace chemicals such as Lead, Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, Benzene, and Hydrogen Sulfide.
Based on the provided application details, we recommended our LMK 809 submersible level sensor with a PVDF housing, Ceramic Diaphragm, FFKM seals, and an FEP cable. This combination of sensor materials offered the highest resistance to all the corrosive chemicals present in the tank.
Highlighted Features and Special Characteristics
- nominal pressure: from 0 … 0.4 mH2O up to 0 … 100 mH2O
- 2-wire output signals: 4 … 20 mA
- 3-wire output signals: 0 … 10 V others on request
- diameter: 45 mm
- chemical resistance
- high overpressure resistance
- especially for tank level
- measurement of viscous and aggressive media
- diaphragm 99.9 % AI2O3
- housing material PP-HT or PVDF
- optional versions (different kinds of cables and elastomers, prepared for mounting with pipe)
In addition to the LMK 809, other sensors suitable for corrosive chemical environments including: LMK 382 H, LMK 806, LMK 807, LMK 808, LMK 809, LMK 858.
