Installation Details

A safe and quick solution for all of your measurements

The ultimate facts about

Close-Coupled Installation Details

Installation details help to achieve precise measurement results. At the same time, they realize less leakage, minimize safety risks and ensure a long life cycle of the measuring system.

Traditional Instrumentation

Traditional instrumentation connects measuring devices or transmitters via impulse lines and many accessories to the system. This method consumes a lot of time and effort during installation & maintenance activities while also being prone to vibration and leakage resulting in extensive maintenance activities.

Unlike as with the use of impulse lines, Installation Details are simple in their installation. They come as a plug & play application already pre-assembled and in pre-tested condition so that they can be installed directly.

Application fields

Close-Coupled Installation Details can be used in all industries where measuring is required. Regardless if you have a pressure, flow or level measurement. Using a wide range of compact designs and self-contained systems, they promise accurate measurement while ensuring high environmental and human safety. With less installation and maintenance efforts, Close-Coupled Installation Details promise an extended life cycle of the measurement arrangement.

Benefits of
Close-coupled Installation Details

With Close-Coupled Installation Details, engineers and technicians can start the assembling process right away. They don‘t have to spend time commissioning loose parts, bending tubes and tightness testing. Instead, they just specify an application set including all accessories from only one supplier.

The impulse lines used for traditional instrumentation call for lots of planning. They are also tricky to install while being time-consuming. Close-Coupled Installation Details have a simple installation process and are connected directly to the process either by weld, threaded or flanged connections. Additional components for adaptation at the plant can be omitted. They are a true plug and play application.

Close coupling reduces the risk of leakage, a critical feature in the oil and gas, chemical, and petrochemical industries. These industries must provide storage for fuel, oil, gas, various chemicals and wastewater. The holding capacity of the storage tanks is often several million liters. Leaks can be disastrous to both the company and the environment.

As joints and threaded connections are minimized, the risk of loosened parts from vibration is reduced. With the use of ½” connections, distorted or even broken lines are not an issue anymore. Most items are coming with a straight bore or with replaceable soft seats, so lines can be cleaned and seats easily & quickly replaced. This leads to a lifetime extension and delay the need for new investments.

With their compact welded designs, Close-Coupled Installation Details eliminate vibrations and unnecessary long distances to the measurement device. The results become more accurate and prevent miscalculations based on inaccurate information.

To avoid trapped residual media in the application or an uncontrolled release, which both are potential dangers for human and environment, Close-Coupled Installation Details offer various options of a controlled release:
Small vent valves for pressure, plugs for liquids or plugged gate valves to shut-off and connect a hose.

The operator can collect and dispose of it in a manner that meets regulatory standards and therefore without injury to health.

Some of the substances contained in the measuring system are corrosive or toxic, others are flammable or environmental hazards. The technician must ensure the availability of a system to capture and dispose of all gases and liquids.

Proper disposal is a legal requirement. The only exceptions are nitrogen, and drinking water. The drain and vent options help operators to properly dispose of accumulated gas and liquid residues during the maintenance and repairs of measuring assemblies.

Environmental protection

Strict conditions apply to process plants in the chemical industry: Safety and environmental protection always have to be ensured, because not all processed substances are harmless to human and nature. This also implies, that gases or liquids mustn’t escape from the plants, neither during operation nor maintenance.

Close-Coupled Installation Details support operators with the proper disposal of accumulating gas and liquid residues. Welded connections and the self-contained system provide enhanced safety while the application is pressurized or filled with media.
