Magnetostrictive Level Transmitters for Petrochemical Applications

The patented sensor technology of ABB’s K-TEK level products enables the LMT range of transmitters to be used in the most difficult industrial level applications like compressor level, interface measurement, and separator level applications. Furthermore, the LMT Series Level Transmitters are the world’s only magnetostrictive level transmitters to be certified for use in SIL2 and SIL3 systems as per IEC61508.

ABB solves high accuracy and challenging applications on a daily basis.

The magnetostrictive transmitters in ABB’s K-TEK level products are largely used worldwide to deliver nonstop level indication and transmission of an analog and/or digital signal for tracking or control.

The exceptional design enables an increase in level sensing resolution, which is over 100 times greater than a traditional reed switch-type device. The versatility of the magnetostrictive level transmitter facilitates direct in-tank installation (LMT100) or external mounting (LMT200) to a magnetic level gauge. HART and FOUNDATION Fieldbus options render ABB’s magnetostrictive level transmitters simple to connect digitally to a majority of the control systems.
