So, you need to learn how to do level calculation for a pressure transmitter with capillary? Here’s what you need to know.

Level calculation never changes on a differential pressure transmitter; once you understand the equation, you can do any other range calculation. Now, there are several types of DP pressure installations to level measurement; I’ll give you a step by step based on your problem.

Level calculation for pressure transmitter with capillary
Example sent by the customer

Level at 0%

  • HP – LP
  • (Height H side x Capillary density) – (Height L side x Capillary)
  • (1000 x 1.02) – (6000 x 1.02)
  • 1020 – 6120
  • DP0% = – 5100 mmWC

Level at 100%

Also, it is important to understand the composition of a differential pressure transmitter. It is composed of a sensing cell (pressure sensor) and a transmitter. The cell has two pressure chambers separated by a diaphragm.

We call one chamber the high-pressure side and the other the low-pressure side, but we don’t have to take that literally. It just tells us the direction of the impact that pressure will have on the output signal.
