Remote seal Transmitters Principle


A remote seal system consists of a transmitter, one or two remote seals, an appropriate transmission liquid, and a connection between the transmitter and remote seal (direct mounting or capillary). The volume in contact with the measured medium is defined by an flexible diaphragm.

The volume between this diaphragm and the pressure transmitter is completely filled with a transmission fluid. If a pressure is now applied to the remote seal, this is transmitted via the flexible diaphragm and the fill fluid to the pressure transmitter.

In many cases, a capillary is located between the remote seal and the pressure transmitter in order e.g. to minimize temperature effects from the hot medium on the latter.

However, the capillary line influences the response time and the temperature response of the complete remote seal system. When fitting remote seals to differential pressure transmitters, two capillaries of the same length must always be used.
