Prairieville, LA - K-TEK, announced the new MT2000 Waveguide Model C8P71. Designed for use with the MT2000 guided wave radar level transmitter, the C8P71 is a robust coupler and waveguide created specifically for high temperature and high pressure hydrocarbon applications. The coupler can withstand extreme pressure and has the highest temperature rating in the industry: 1500psi @ 800°F (103 bar @ 427°C) and 5000 psi @ 100°F (344 bar @ 38°C). The C8P71 directs the radar beam through a concentric waveguide, thus alleviating divergence problems and echoes from tank walls and surrounding structures. The C8P71 has a hermetic seal and is unaffected by vapors (excluding steam), making it especially useful for noxious environments.
The MT2000, configured with the Model C8P71 Waveguide, is designed specifically for measurements in high temperature and high pressure hydrocarbon applications, including liquid/liquid interfaces. By incorporating a borosilicate glass insulator/seal and a 316 stainless steel body, the device can handle extreme pressures and higher temperatures than other guided wave radar transmitters in the industry.
The MT2000 provides the highest accuracy readings in the industry at ±0.20 inches (5.1 mm). With traditional displacers or DP transmitters, the specific gravity of the fluid being measured changes with temperature and pressure, producing varying accuracies. The MT2000's guided wave radar is unaffected by variations in specific gravity, thus providing accurate level measurements even with widely varying temperatures and pressures.
