Vapor Quality Sensor in Strainer Housing (DX & Flooded)

Functional description:

Vapor Quality Sensor integrated into standard strainer housing available in both carbon steel (DN20 to DN300 (13 different sizes)) and stainless steel (DN20 to DN65 (6 different sizes)). Ask for availability if size outside of this range is requested.

With a vapor quality sensor integrated into a standard strainer house you are ensured safe functionality of the sensor and installation is easy. The butt weld 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.

Product features

Can be used for both DX systems and Flooded Systems (OVC systems)
Measures Vapor Quality in Refrigeration Systems (The Liquid-Vapor Ratio).
Increases COP up to 45 % in DX-Systems
Sensor makes Zero Superheat Control possible in DX-Systems
Enables Vapor Quality Control in Flooded Systems
A Vapor Quality Sensor installed in Strainer Housing ensures a perfect Measurement and Proper Functionality of the Sensor
Easy Installation and Cleaning

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.
