How do measure the level of a tank which is in vacuum pressure? (3)
to set the 4 mA output of the transmitter, a pressure equivalent to wet leg pressure must be applied to the low side of the transmitter with the high side vented to atmosphere and the adjustment made. Alternatively a vacuum equivalent to...

Help: Calculate flow according to output of around 10mA (1)
10 mA is equivalent to 37.5 inches of water. You ge this by dividing (10-4)/(20-4) and multiplying by 100. Flow is equal to the square root of the differential pressure across the orifice plate. So take the square root of 37.5 which...
