Applications - Conductivity

Below are some simple diagrams to show the potential uses of Conductivity Level controls.

Control of 1 pump/valve between 2 levels fixed by length of electrodes.

Control of 1 pump/valve between 2 levels fixed by length of electrodes.

Using a fixed probe system means there are no moving parts to jam or go wrong.

Cut the electrodes at the point where you want something to happen
If there is any insulation on the electrodes strip back about 50 mm ( 2 inches) and expose the bare metal underneath.
Ensure you have an earth return. This can be the metal tank or the submersed pump or another electrode. If using an earth electrode it must always be the longest electrode in the tank. But it only needs to be slightly longer than the next electrode.
Remember to use the Hawker level controller which is the brains to make a repeatable reliable system.It is designed to ignore electrode contamination.

Pump and Valve Control a using multi holder

Control of 1 pump/valve between 2 levels fixed by electrode lengths using multi holder

A multi electrode holder is an ideal space saver and it cuts down on the installation costs. However you should only use a Multi electrode holder for clean liquids

Hawker Electronics can offer you a range of multi holders for small sumps and double skinned vessels up to larger tanks.

We can offer a range of electrode for chemical applications.

The principle is exactly the same as single electrode holders in that you need to have active electrodes for on/off control or open/close valves or high/low alarms.

Some multiholders can have up to 5 electrodes to give you for example pump control plus high and low alarm or 2 pump control plus high alarm.

Using a fixed probe system means there are no moving parts to jam or go wrong.

Cut the electrodes at the point where you want something to happen

Borehole pump controlled from electrodes in break tank

Borehole pump controlled from electrodes in break tank. Low level protection for borehole pump from electrodes suspended in borehole, stopping on lower electrode and starting when water level recovers to higher level

A break tank will call for water from the borehole. But it is important that the water abstraction from the borehole can cope with the demand.

A borehole electrode will protect the borehole pump from dry running
In the break tank electrodes will call for water to keep the break tank topped up.
A low level probe can be used to send an alarm to warn of low level in the break tank

remote borehole applications

Arrangement when break tank is remote

Control of 2 levels in borehole fixed by suspended borehole electrode. Pump controlled by level in Remote break tank.

Borehole pump stops on high pressure restarts when ball valve re-opens after suitable time delay.

Time clocks can be incorporated in these systems to limit pump running to low tariffs.

Borehole application using a Pressure transducer

Indication of water level in borehole using pressure transducer can be incorporated in above systems.

Lvel probes give point level detection. Sometimes continuous level indication is required so a mixture of level probes and a pressure transducer can be used.

The pressure transducer will give a continuous output signal for the calibrated depth of liquid and the signal will be either a millivolt or a milliamp signal. Nowadays most people prefer to use a milliamp signal in the range of 4 - 20 milliamps.

This output signal can be connected to a signal conditioning module to allow it to be respanned or into a trip amplifier to control pumps and give alarms or to a BMS system.
