Today, there are multiple options and variations are available in order to cater all the small and large businesses. The ultrasonic level indicator for food processing is from their range of liquid leak detector. It is a non-invasively verifies the contents of cylinders and tanks holding liquids, suitable for a range of industrial purposes e.g food processing and ammonia cylinders in aerospace.

IBCs Industrial Food Processing
Background:

Food processing factory based in the south of the UK producing Coleslaw, packaged salads and pastas for the likes of McDonalds, Tesco, Morrisons, Lidl. Producing over 130,000 pots of Coleslaw a day.

Application:
2.2 metre high, 5mm stainless steel wall, filled with mayonnaise to be used for the Coleslaw. The current monitoring method consists of employing ladders to peer into the cylinder and check usage and remaining contents. The issue with this method lies in potential contamination and is a health and safety risk to the operator.

Solution:
Engineers conducted a site visit and after a short trial they were able to gauge that the existing liquid level indication technology employed on previous ranges would be efficient in quickly and accurately gauging the liquid level of mayonnaise within the vessel. It is known to be an efficient ultrasonic leak detector.

Implementation:
The implementation of the ultrasonic level sensor allows the plant to run more efficiently and reduces risks by providing the staff with a means of accurately and non-invasively monitoring the contents within the mayonnaise tank negating the need for physical inspection using ladders posing a health and safety risk to the operator.

Possibilities:
The trial and implementation suggested that could develop a fixed monitoring system for this vessel and others like it, in order to non-invasively; continuously monitor the contents of mayonnaise (or any other condiments) within the tank. In addition we also saw possibilities to refine the capabilities of the ultrasonic liquid level sensor to increase ease of use.

Ammonia cylinders in Aerospace
Background:

Manufacturer of high-end components for Aerospace and other high-end engineering. The Wolver Hampton facility runs 24/7 365 days a year and is the size of around 2-3 football pitches. The facility is concerned mainly in manufacturing high-end actuators that are installed on a range of civil and defense systems.

Application:
The facilities manager of the factory met with us at the Facilities Management show in Birmingham weeks prior. We were informed on the need to monitor the contents within Ammonia Cylinders.

The customer uses ammonia in a nitriding process in which ammonia is applied to a heated metal infusing the metal with Nitrogen. This can have beneficial properties such as making the metal harder/tougher/higher melting temperatures etc. Presently, weighing techniques are used to ensure a cylinder has enough contents for a run. This has been shown to be ineffective and incur waste - a non-invasive, accurate method would be quicker, reduce waste and save money.

Solution:
A Coltraco Engineer visited the site to conduct technology suitability trials. Our technology was found to be effective in accurately and quickly in identifying the liquid level within the ammonia cylinders.

Implementation:
It was recommended that a standard un-altered liquid level indicator would be a suitable solution.
We also cooperated with the customer to develop an in-house testing and recording process that was compatible with their current processes. The solution provided a quick and accurate non-invasive solution, which allowed for more efficient operations and reduced waste by ensuring partially empty cylinders were not returned to the gas supplier.

Possibilities:

The trial and implementation suggested that we could develop a fixed monitoring system for this agent to non-invasively constantly monitor their cylinder contents. This also stimulated interest in developing an Ammonia Portasteele® program by Coltraco to allow the accurate conversion of liquid level to agent mass.

    Ultrasonic Technology
    Calibration and training certificates available

Operating Method of Portable Ultrasonic Flow Meter
Transit Time flow meters utilize two transducers that function as both ultrasonic transmitters and receivers. The transducers are clamped on the outside of a vertical or horizontal pipe at a specific distance calculated by the instrument. The elapsed time of this ultrasonic flow meter between transmitted and received signals varies very slightly depending on whether the signal is traveling upstream or downstream and by comparing these time differences an accurate calculation of the flow rate is possible and is displayed in your choice of engineering units. As the ultrasonic beam crosses the pipe, compensation for laminar or turbulent flow is automatic.

Depending on the application and flow profile, the transducers can be mounted in V-method in which case the ultra sound transverses the pipe twice, the W-method in which case the ultra sound transverses the pipe four times or the Z-method in which case the transducers are mounted on opposite sides of the pipe and the ultra sound transverses the pipe only once. These modes are automatically selected by the instrument and are also user selectable. (X denotes the distance between the transducers; this is automatically calculated by the instrument at setup depending on the inputted application data).

This liquid level indicator is the prior unit with its unbeatable features on an international scale. It is an ultrasonic non-invasive liquid level indicator capable of recording and storing up to 1,000 cylinders worth of readings. The traditional range of liquid gas level indicator is used for identifying the content of critical fire extinguishing cylinders but it is then left up to the operator to accurately record this elsewhere and complete the reporting processes to certify a system. It was due to the disconnection between the physical servicing and data recording that the ultrasonic level indicator was designed to overcome. To avoid the unavailability and inaccuracy can lead to some serious situations so offering multiple solutions has always been the reason of popularity for Coltraco.

During the servicing of each cylinder, operators continually record on the unit: the date, time, cylinder type and unit reading. When the system has been completed, the unit is plugged into a computer and the full data trail of readings can be downloaded and entered directly into system reports. This is how easily this liquid level indicator functions.

This unique capability of ultrasonic leak detector allows fire servicing companies to differentiate themselves from competition by providing high-asset value safety managers certification proof of the servicing having taken place, as well as a record of each cylinder level reading and evidence that during the servicing interval every cylinder was totally full.

Operating Method of Portalevel™ Datalogger

    Purpose of Sensor
    The device sends an ultrasonic signal directly into the cylinder using a sensor. The sensor ‘listens’ to the ultrasound signal which is reflected back by the cylinder and its contents
    Analyzing the Strength of Received Signals
    It then automatically analyses this information and provides the readout to the user which represents how strong the received signal is.
    Effect of Material on Signals
    The way the ultrasonic waves travel through different materials changes the signal which the Portalevel unit receives.
    Identification of Location
    The changes in the received signal can then be used to identify the location of the liquid level in a cylinder to an accuracy of ± 1.5 mm
    Change in Readings from Gas to Liquid Phase
    There is a large change in readings from the gas phase to the liquid phase. By finding the exact point at which this change occurs the liquid level can be located
    Generation of Results
    The results generated with the help of this ultrasonic level indicator can be downloaded onto a computer after testing by linking the unit to the computer with the provided USB cable and PC client software
    Continuous Storage of Entire Data Produced
    Using this technique, specific historical records can be built up on each system and the user can obtain verifiable proof of the system’s continuous inspection over time.

All around the world, there are various fire extinguishing agents which are utilized to meet the unexpected circumstances. The choosing procedure all depends on the purchaser’s needs and budgets but Coltraco offers a reasonably price fire extinguishing system with integrated liquid level indicators in order to make sure that respective can easily manage to monitor it consistently. As far as smothering out the fire flames with NOVEC 1230 is considered a really reasonable option. It manages to blow out the flames within matter of few seconds but what makes people to avoid is the expensiveness of this agent. After all this, if someone bears the budget for high quality protection, Coltraco Limited, UK makes sure that the monitoring system should be made reasonable to compensate the hard earned cash someone has spent on installing the fire suppressing system.

Novec 1230 gas suppression system is the up and coming era of compound fire concealment with quick and comprehensive results. The viability of the gas has earned it the endorsement of the utilization in marine fire suppressant procedures. The gas has been finished with all of the tests it was put through by the International Maritime Organizations. Henceforth it turned into an impeccable one to be introduced in the colossal boats of today and kill the blazes that may emerge in the unmanned ranges of a ship. Since the boats of today are sufficiently colossal to convey an entire square of a city in them, it is difficult to spread staff everywhere throughout the ship and watch out for any unfortunate action going on.

Features of Novec 1230 Gas Suppression System
 The Novec 1230 gas suppression system is utilized to kill out the flares in the ranges where there is no people show at all circumstances. It is a viable framework to drench fire with the gas that would give the staff enough time to achieve the spot and figure a procedure to conquer the flares that have risen because of any reason. The process functions with the associations of flame and smoke identifiers. There are various types of frameworks introduced in a ship, which is worried with the fabrication and plan of a ship. A few boats have the rack mounted or the slip mounted chambers introduced. The primary explanation behind the distinctive sorts of establishment is the work of the ship they are being introduced in.

As the gas is available inside the chambers that are associated with channels everywhere throughout the ship, as a rule these barrels are set in a different compartment. Henceforth, the staff once in a while draws them nearer yet it is basic to watch out for them. The gas may lose its adequacy after some time. In the event that it has been utilized sooner or later, the level of the gas is most likely to diminish in the barrels. Indeed, even after some time when it has not been utilized, the gas may lose its adequacy. In such a case the level may likewise diminish. Bring down levels of gas implies that if there should arise an occurrence of a more noteworthy fire, the gas would run out and the undertaking would stay fixed and the harm would not be dispensed with totally.

To ensure that the gas is constantly present until it is required, the barrels ought to be measured for time to time. These single cleaned barrels don't permit the human eye to observe inside and see the level of the gas. Henceforth we require some device to quantify the substance inside the single cleaned holders and for this reason the ultrasonic level indicator turns out to be the best instrument. Utilizing its one of a kind sense to identify level of the substance inside the holders without requiring contact with the fluid or gas it is measuring. The gadget would distinguish the level of the gas inside and the staff can choose if there is a need a refill or not.
