Help with a Krohne UFC 6300

06/22/2017 9:32 PM

Hello guys, i have a optisonic 6300 from krohne, but i don't have any idea how to parametize this optisonic. I tried to follow the settings that the manual informs, but when configuring the sensors simply do not give signal. Sorry for the bad english, i'am from brazil.

the optisonic

What kind of instrument is that, I am unfamiliar. Silica analyzer? pH transmitter?

It is a Krohne UFC 6300. Can you not Google?

Can you not make comments for which you are too ashamed to claim by online persona?

Are both of us unable to ask questions in the affirmative?

Who will not be able to see these questions as rhetorical?

Sheesh, I was merely asking for some more information from the OP?

Can you not go dunk your head in a toilet?

You imply that this is a new installation, needing parameterization, but the dirt and corrosion on the transducer casing and the condition of the pipe surface makes it appear to be an older installation.

So the questions are is this a unit that was working and now has failed and you are attempting to fix it by re-parameterizing it?

Or are you re-installing a previously used unit in a different location? There are different approaches depending on what the situation is, and you haven't given us a clue.

Krohne is notorious for minimalist documentation and true to form, the latest manual in a link provided above gave scant information on pipe preparation

My experience with clamp-on flow meters is with a different brand, but some installation requirements are likely to be common amongst ulstrasonic clamp-ons given the basics of the technology.

Check out the statements on preparing and cleaning the pipe surface from another brand's manual (Below).

Note that a clean surface is essential for energy transfer between the pipe and the transducer to the pipe.

Also note the warning against mounting ultrasonic transducers on the top of the pipe.

Other brands require the application of a pasty/greasy sonic coupling compound at the transducer contact point/surface as an energy transfer medium to cover scratches, voids, and irregularities in the pipe surface. Is the sonic coupling compound in place and in good shape?

"SELECTING A LOCATION FOR CLAMP-ON TRANSDUCERS
- Locate the transducers downstream from the center of the longest available straight run. A location ten pipe diameters or greater downstream from the nearest bend will provide the best flow profile conditions.

- Do not (if possible) install the transducers downstream from a throttling valve, a mixing tank, the discharge of a positive displacement pump or any other equipment that could possibly aerate the liquid.

- The best location will be as free as possible from flow disturbances, vibration, sources of heat, noise, or radiated energy.
- Avoid mounting the transducers on a section of pipe with any external scale.

- Remove all scale, rust, loose paint, etc., from the location.- Do not mount the transducers on a surface aberration (pipe seam, etc.). Prepare the pipe surface. Degrease the surface, if necessary, and remove any grit, corrosion, rust, loose paint, etc. Use abrasive material provided to provide a clean contact surface for the transducers. Clean an area 1/2” on either side of transducer and an additional 1/2” along the length of the transducer.

- Never mount transducers on the top or bottom of a horizontal pipe. The best placement on a horizontal pipe is either the nine o’clock or three o’clock position. Mounting on a vertical pipe is recommended only if flow is in the upward direction.

- When mounting on a vertical pipe flowing in a downward direction make sure there is sufficient back pressure in the system to maintain a full pipe."
