Vapor Quality Sensor

Category: HBX-ST-CO2 - DX and Overfeed Systems for CO2/Butane/Isobutane/Propane gases

With a vapor quality sensor integrated into a standard strainer house CO2/Butane/Isobutane/Propanese you are ensured safe functionality of the sensor and easy installation. The butt-welded connection makes it easy to weld with same size of piping.

Please be aware that the flow direction of the vapor quality sensor is opposite of the flow direction when used as a strainer. If installed with wrong flow direction functionality will NOT be correct.

Besides the benefit of easy installation this solution makes it easy to dismantle the lid with the sensor conductor and clean it if necessary.

The sensor integrated into standard strainer housing is available in both carbon steel DN20 to DN300 and stainless steel DN20 to DN65. Ask for availability if size outside of this range is requested

Product features

Measures the volumetric concentration of gas in a gas/liquid mixture
Balanced evaporator control to achieve semi-flooded operation with high heat transfer
Able to control an expansion valve directly with simultaneously analog 4-20mA output to a PLC
Can be used to optimize and control both DX systems and overfeed systems
Instant measurement and analog output
Can be used for all common refrigerants

Applications

Flooded system:

HBX ST flooded applikationstegning

Optimum efficiency at all loads is obtain by measuring the Vapor Quality in the outlet of the evaporator and use the signal to change the height of the driving head as shown, lower level will minimize the liquid amount  in the evaporator and secure balanced and dynamic evaporation  during part load and thus optimum heat transfer.

The HBX-OVC-ST Vapor Quality control signal (cable out, 4-20mA) is connected to DI 3 (pin 3) on the HBSLC liquid level sensor and used to change the desired set value for the liquid level in the recirculation vessel/separator.
