SECTION 1 - INTRODUCTION

1-1. General
The Model 224/224C Differential Pressure Unit (DPU) is a mechanical device
that measures differential pressure relative to a gas or liquid flowing through a
process system, or to the level of a liquid contained in a process vessel.
For process flow measurements, the DPU is connected across a primary device
(e.g., venturi, orifice plate, or flow tube) located in the process system.
For liquid level measurements, the DPU may be connected in a variety of ways
to measure the difference in pressure caused by variations in the level of the
liquid in the process vessel.
1-2. Product Description
The Model 224/224C DPU is a dual bellows assembly enclosed within pressure
housings. The dual bellows assembly consists of two opposing internally con-
nected liquid-filled bellows, a center-block, range springs, overrange valves, and
a torque tube assembly.
The pressure housings are connected by pipe or tubing to the primary device
located in the system piping. Variations in differential pressure within the pres-
sure housings cause the bellows to expand or contract in a linear direction
towards the side having the lowest pressure.
The linear movement of the bellows is converted into angular rotation when
transmitted to the torque tube shaft by the drive arm and this mechanical motion
actuates the mechanism of the process monitoring instrument.
The process monitoring instrument that is connected to the torque tube assem-
bly may be an indicator, a switch, a transmitter, a recorder, or other process
control device.
1-3. Specifications
The Model 224/224C DPU is available in various pressure ratings to measure
to specific ranges between 0-30 inches of water column and 0-1000 psi, with
safe working pressure (SWP) ratings from 500 to 10,000 psi (224 Non-C lim-
ited to 500 to 3,000 psi SWP). See Table 1-1, page 4.
The 224C Bellows Unit Assembly (BUA) is produced in three bellows sizes:
1-5/8 inch, 5/8 inch, and 3/4 inch diameter.
The 1-5/8 inch diameter BUA accommodates differential pressures to 55 psi.
The range springs of this BUA are contained within the bellows and do not
come in contact with the measured liquid.
The 3/4 inch BUA accommodates differential pressures up to 400 psi and the
5/8 inch BUA up to 1,000 psi. The range springs of these BUAs are grouped
around the outside of the bellows and must be of a material that is compatible
with the liquid being measured.

CAUTION
Ambient temperatures below +40°F should never be allowed for water
filled (D-fill) units.

1-4. Theory of Operation
The M224/224C DPU measures the differential pressure (DP) in a process
system relative to process functions and produces a mechanical output that actu-
ates process monitoring instruments and process control devices.

Figure 1-1. DPU Components
The high-pressure (HP) housing is connected by pipe or tubing to the high-
pressure side of the primary device. The low-pressure (LP) housing is connected
to the low-pressure side of the primary device.
Any pressure changes within the housings causes the bellows to move in the
direction of least pressure. As the bellows move laterally, the connecting drive
arm follows the motion of the bellows, and twists the torque tube.
The torque tube shaft, which is freely supported within the torque tube at its
outer end, but attached to the torque tube and drive arm at the inner end, rotates
through the same angle as the drive arm. The rotation of the torque tube shaft
provides the mechanical motion required to actuate process instruments, such as
recorders, indicators, transmitters, controllers, and switches.
If the bellows are subjected to a pressure greater than the range of the DPU,
they move their normal travel range and a small amount of overtravel until
the overrange valve seals against the valve seat. As the valve closes, the fill
liquid is trapped in the bellows. Since the fill fluid is essentially noncompressible,
the bellows are fully supported and will not be damaged regardless of the
overpressure (up to the full rated pressure of the instrument) applied to them.
Also, since dual overrange valves are used, full protection against overrange is
provided in either direction.
An additional convolution in the high-pressure side of the bellows provides
for expansion or contraction of the fill fluid relative to ambient temperature
changes. This extra convolution acts as an accumulator permitting the fill fluid
to change volume without materially affecting the pressure within the bellows or
changing the physical relationship of the two bellows.

SECTION 2 - INSTALLATION

2-1. General
The instrument should be inspected at time of unpacking to detect any damage
that may have occurred during shipment. Note: The DPU was checked for
accuracy at the factory — do not change any of the settings during examina-
tion or accuracy will be affected.
For applications requiring special cleaning/precautions, a polyethylene
bag is used to protect the instrument from contamination. This bag
should be removed only under conditions of extreme cleanliness.
2-2. DPU Mounting
A. Flush or Panel
1. Cut an opening in the panel and drill four holes (17/64"), per outline
dimension drawings in Section 5.
2. Pass the instrument through the cutout in the panel (from panel front).
3. Attach the indicator to the panel with four screws.
C. Pipe
Refer to Section 5. The unit must be mounted approximately level for
proper operation.
2-3. DPU Piping

WARNING
HIGH PRESSURE HAZARD. TO PREVENT PERSONAL
INJURY OR DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT, DIRECT ALL PIPING
AWAY FROM THE OPERATOR WHILE CONNECTING THE
DPU TO THE SYSTEM PIPING.
WARNING
EXPLOSION HAZARD. NO ORGANIC COMPOUNDS,
OIL, GREASE, DIRT, OR SCALE OF ANY KIND CAN BE
TOLERATED IN AN OXYGEN INSTALLATION.
WARNING
FOR INSTALLATIONS WHERE THE PRESSURE COULD
EXCEED THE RATED MAXIMUM SAFE WORKING
PRESSURE OF THE DPU, THE PIPING SYSTEM MUST
INCLUDE PROTECTIVE MEASURES TO PREVENT OVER
PRESSURE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE LOCAL
AND NATIONAL PIPING CODES.
WARNING
THE MODEL 224/224C DPU IS NOT DESIGNED FOR
HIGH STATIC OR DYNAMIC LOADS AT IMPULSE LINE
CONNECTIONS. THE IMPULSE PIPING SYSTEM MUST BE
DESIGNED WITH ADEQUATE SUPPORTS TO MINIMIZE
THE LOADS AT THE DPU.

WARNING
DO NOT REUSE HOUSING BOLTS. SEE HOUSING BOLT
WARNING ON PAGE 20.
CAUTION
DPU pressure rating has been determined using standard methods
without specific considerations for corrosion (internal or external) or
fatigue. The system designer should appropriately derate any DPU
where these considerations are significant issues. Do not subject DPU
to unnecessary shock/overrange pressure during operation.
CAUTION
DPU bellows protects torque tube from exposure to process fluid.
Cyclic conditions can cause undetected bellows failure resulting in
exposure of the torque tube to the process fluid.
NOTICE
Do not share filling or vapor return lines with DPU piping lines.
Standard Piping Practices (observe when installing piping):
1. Shorten distance between primary device and DPU as much as possible.
Distances exceeding 100 feet are not recommended. For distances up to
50 feet, use 1/4-inch pipe or tubing. For runs 50 to 100 feet, use 1/2-
inch pipe or tubing. The recommended limitation does not apply if an air
purge or blow-back system is used.
2. Slope all piping at least 1-inch/linear foot to avoid liquid/gas entrapment.
3. Provide two feet of un-insulated piping between the DPU and the primary
device for each 100 degrees in excess of +180°F (+162°C), if process
media exceeding +200°F (+93.3°C) must be measured.
4 Assure that the temperature of the DPU never exceeds 180°F (+162°C).
When steam tracing is necessary, the steam pressure should not exceed five
pounds per square inch and insulation should not be used. If pressure must
exceed five pounds per square inch, limit the length of tubing around the
DPU to two turns and do not insulate.
5. When severe pulsation is present, install a suitable pulsation dampening
device upstream of the DPU; otherwise, accuracy will be affected.
6. Mount DPU on a solid support to minimize vibration. Tighten all points,
using a suitable compound; leaks in piping can cause measurement errors.
7. Rotate the housing as necessary to place the connection in the proper posi-
tion. The DPU has connections in the pressure housings to accommodate
various pipe sizes (refer to Section 5).
8. Install a valve manifold connecting the DPU and the source of differential
pressure to facilitate operation and checking of the DPU.
9. Install all shutoff and bypass valves so they are easily accessible from front
of instrument. Locate block valves at the source of differential pressure.
10. For gas service, it is recommended that zero check be performed with both
block valves closed. If gas flow is pulsating, a standing wave effect may be
in the process line displacing the indicator (appearing to be a zero error).

2-4. DPU Piping/Startup Examples
"Typical" piping diagrams and startup procedures are presented on pages 9-17.
For specific application/installation/piping information, contact PRIME Factory.
Review all WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTICES (pages 7 and 8)
before installation or startup.
• Flow Applications (pages 9-13) (HP = High Pressure)
Ensure DPU HP housing is connected to the primary device upstream tap.
NOTICE: To prevent overheating DPU during blow-down, operator should
monitor temperature by placing his hands on pipe between DPU and the
manifold pipe containing the vent valves.
• Liquid Level Applications (pages 13-16)
The process media may be used as a reference leg seal fluid when it is of
a type that will condense in the reference leg under all conditions. If the
process or process media characteristics are such that the above conditions
cannot be met, a special reference leg seal fluid will be required.
If special seal fluid media characteristics are such that the above conditions
cannot be met, a special reference leg seal fluid will be required. The spe-
cial seal fluid must not be volatile and must not be miscible with the process
media. The difference in densities (special seal fluid vs process media) will
require compensation in calculating differential pressure range of the DPU.
• Liquid Specific Gravity Applications (page 17)
This method of piping is used for determining specific gravity changes in a
process media using differential pressure instruments.

J. DPU Below Tank with Reference Leg
Cool Liquids:
Use of reference leg cancels out the "dead leg" (piping from the tank
bottom to center line of meter body). Seal fluid in reference leg must not
volatilize. Process media can be used as a reference leg seal fluid if it is
such that it will condense in reference leg under all conditions. Otherwise,
special, immiscible seal fluid must be used. Difference in densities between
process media and seal fluid must be considered when computing differen-
tial pressure range of DPU.
1. Partially fill reference leg by opening bottom block valve, both shutoff
valves, and bypass valve.
2. Crack drain plugs on the
DPU housing and vent the
valve. Close when clear,
bubble-free liquid flows.
3. Close bypass and shutoff
valve on reference leg.
4. Remove plug from the top
port in 2-inch pipe cross
connection, and fill the
reference leg manually.
5. Open top shutoff valve
and crack vent valve until
bubbles are expelled.
Leave the reference leg
full.
6. Replace plug in pipe cross
and close vent valve.

A. Pressure Check
WARNING
FAILURE TO PERFORM THIS PROCEDURE CAN RESULT IN
SEVERE INJURY, DEATH OR SUBSTANTIAL PROPERTY
DAMAGE DUE TO THE RELEASE OF INTERNAL PRESSURE.
This procedure should be performed prior to removing the DPU housing
bolts, especially if the DPU has been installed in gas applications with
working pressures greater than 200 psig.
1. Back off all housing bolts 4 turns.
2. Check for internal pressure by attempting to move the housing in and
out along the bolts.
a. If the housing moves freely — no pressure is present — servicing
or repair may continue.
b. If the housing does not move freely — the bellows may
be pressurized and is POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS if further
disassembled.
Tighten the bolts and return the unit to the factory or
authorized service center for repair.
Tag the unit and specify “Gas in Bellows”.
B. Cleaning/Inspection Procedure
Instruments used in services where solids or semi-solids may accumulate
inside the pressure housings require periodic inspection and cleaning, as
follows.
1. Remove the DPU from service and remove the pressure housings.
2. Carefully remove the pressure housings from the bellows unit assembly.

NOTICE
If the accumulation of material inside the housing is extensive, rapid
removal of the housing may damage the bellows convolutions.

3-6. Servicing
Range Change
To change the range of the DPU, the bellows unit assembly (BUA) must be
replaced with a unit of the desired range.
BUA Replacement
WARNING
REVIEW ALL WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, AND NOTICES UNDER DPU
CLEANING AND INSPECTION (PAGES 19 AND 20) BEFORE PER-
FORMING THIS PROCEDURE.
NOTICE
Do not loosen drive-arm hold plug (located on the top of the BUA center plate)
when removing the mounting bracket. If the plug is loosened, the fill fluid in the
bellows will be lost and the unit will be rendered inoperable.

1. Disconnect the DPU piping, remove the instrument from service, and
remove the mounting bracket from the DPU.
2. Loosen the actuated instrument drive arm and separate it from the torque
tube shaft. Do not disconnect the actuated instrument linkage.
NOTICE
See the actuated instrument's manual for particular components that
must be removed to gain access to the DPU mounting fasteners.

3. Perform Pressure Check Procedure (A) under DPU Cleaning and Inspec-
tion on page 20. If internal pressure was found, do not continue
this procedure.
4. Remove pressure housing bolts and pressure housings.

NOTICE
It is recommended that new O-Rings be used whenever pressure hous-
ings are replaced.

5. Install the pressure housings onto the new BUA and attach with
appropriate housing bolts (see Table 3-1 for torque requirements).
6. Re-attach DPU (See para. 3-7, page 24 for procedure) to the actuated
instrument.
NOTICE
(Drive Arm/Torque Tube Tightness Test)
For nuclear seismic/high impact qualified units, a tightness test must
be performed whenever a DPU is attached to an instrument. See para.
3-8., page 24 for specific instructions.

7. Install the assembled instrument into service (in reverse order of removal)
and calibrate, per separate actuated instrument manual.

Figure 3-2. Attaching Drive Arm to Torque Tube


1. Slip drive arm over torque tube shaft; clear end of torque-tube housing by
approximately 0.030-inches before securing to prevent interference.
2. To tighten drive arm assembly onto torque-tube shaft:
a. Support block/shaft and tighten clamp screw until snug to shaft.
b. Still supporting block/shaft, tighten clamp screw an additional:
• Sintered: 1/3 to 1/2 turn (This screw can normally turn one full
revolution before breaking.)
• Slotted: 1/4 to 1/3 turn (The slot in the slotted clamp block
should still be open.)
3-8. Drive Arm Tightness Test Procedure
(Required for Nuclear Seismic/High Impact Shock Qualified Units)
This procedure tests drive arm to torque-tube attachment tightness by apply-
ing torque developed by DPU onto a fixed drive arm. Care should be taken
to apply pressure slowly as the torque is being applied to the connection
through the torque-tube drive shaft and not the torque-tube itself.
With pointer at normal 0% torque-tube rotation position (max. minimum scale
position or 0% on a normal 0 to 100% scale unit), adjust drive arm stop bracket
(or use alternate means) to prevent pointer from moving (stop bracket interferes
with drive arm movement). Note: On reverse acting and split range units, the
DPU must be pressurized to move pointer to max. minimum scale position and
on suppressed units it will be necessary to apply pressure to establish a reference
point to check for “zero” shift.
Pressurize DPU as required to full calibrated scale differential pressure (100% of
the full scale range). This achieves 8-degree of torque-tube drive shaft equivalent
torque onto the connection.
Observe shift in unit “zero” following DPU depressurization (as required) and
drive arm stop bracket readjusting (to allow free movement of the drive arm and
pointer). A downscale (counter-clockwise) shift in “zero” of greater than 1/2% is
indicative of drive arm slippage necessitating further clamp block tightening.

SECTION 1 - INTRODUCTION

1-1. General
The weatherproof Models 288A, 288C, and the explosion-proof Model 290D
are DP Indicating Switches. The 288A and 288C have a NEMA-4 watertight
die-cast aluminum case (finished with a weather-resistant black epoxy resin
paint). The cover lens is secured in the bezel with an elastomer ring to reduce
the possibility of accidental breakage. This ring also acts as a seal between the
bezel and the case to ensure a moisture, fume and dust-free atmosphere for the
indicator and switch mechanism.
Model 290D has an explosion-proof case that is certified for Class I, Division 1,
Groups B, C & D service. The large cover lens allows maximum readability of
the indicating pointer.
Switches and all adjustments are readily accessible when the cover is removed.
The built-in switches energize either single or dual alarm circuits when the mea-
sured differential pressures exceed predetermined limits. These limits may be
either maximum, minimum, or both.

1-3. Indicating Switch (refer to Figures 1-2/2-1 to 2-6 and Table 2-1)
Rotation of DPU torque tube shaft is coupled through connecting linkage within
the switch case to move the pointer across the scale plate. An actuating cam,
directly connected to torque tube shaft, rotates with the motion of the shaft.
Two cam follower roller/actuator arm assemblies, one for each switch, respond
to torque tube rotation by opening and closing the switches as they ride on and
off the cam. The levels of DP at which the switches actuate are adjustable with
high and low alarm switch adjustments on the scale plate.
Standard models can have one or two alarm switches. Each switch can be con-
nected to operate normally-opened or normally-closed. The direct-set switch
contacts are adjustable over a scale range of 5-95% nominal.

SECTION 2 - INSTALLATION

2-1. General
The instrument should be inspected at time of unpacking to detect any dam-
age that may have occurred during shipment. Note: The unit was checked for
accuracy at the factory — do not change any of the settings during examina-
tion or accuracy will be affected.
For applications requiring special cleaning/precautions, a polyethylene
bag is used to protect the instrument from contamination. This bag
should be removed only under conditions of extreme cleanliness.

2-2. Mounting/Piping/DPU Installation


Refer to the appropriate DPU Manual for the Model being installed.
2-3. Electrical Connection (Switches/Relays)
Units are supplied with either single or dual alarm switches and/or relays (de-
pending on customer order). The direct-set switch contacts are adjustable over
the entire scale range.
Table 2-1 shows switch and relay wiring color coding for legacy and current
configurations. Figures 2-1 through 2-6 show switch and relay wiring.
The high switch and low switch set point adjustment procedures are covered in
paragraph 3-7, page 16.
For physical location of switches, see page 3.
2-4. Switch Use
Switch contact life is influenced by various application conditions such as tem-
perature, humidity, airborne contamination, vibration, amount of plunger travel,
cycling rate, and rate of plunger travel (and others), as well as by the electrical
(circuit) characteristics.
NOTICE: Arc suppression for inductive loads will prolong the life of the switch
contacts.
Note: Due to their size, subminiature switches have small mechanical clear-
ances; therefore, no rating above 250 VAC has been established.
2-5. Startup
For startup procedures, Warnings, and information, refer to the separate DPU
Manual that is appropriate for the indicator-switch model (see front page of this
manual).
NOTICE
To ensure the unit calibration is within factory-set calibration tolerances, per-
form the Calibration Check procedure in paragraph 3-4, page 13.

3-3. Bezel/Lens (or Cover) Installation and Removal (Continued)
NOTICE
Ensure correct bezel gasket orientation before placing instrument
back in service. Incorrect bezel gasket orientation will cause the
instrument indicator to jam, resulting in inaccurate readings.
For 288C SST Version units, refer to Fig. 4-2, page 31.
For Explosionproof units, cover is unscrewed to gain access to the inter-
nal components. When re-installing cover, tighten cover securely and inspect
lens for cracks or other defects that may affect the explosionproof rating.
Refer to Fig. 4-3, page 32.
3-4. Calibration Check
To ensure the unit calibration is within factory-set calibration tolerances, per-
form the following procedure. NOTICE: Review all procedures, WARN-
INGS/NOTICES in the separate 224/224C DPU manual BEFORE
performing this procedure.
1. Mount instrument in an approx. level position and connect to a standard
pressure source (see separate 224/224C manual).
2. If the zero indication is incorrect,
remove bezel/lens assembly (cover
on explosionproof units) and re-adjust
zero, per the following: Pointer "slipped" HUB
rotated on hub
With a 1/4" open-end wrench (in-
cluded in calibration kit 0288-1032B),
hold the hexagon pointer hub fixed
and rotate the pointer with fingers
until the pointer accurately indicates

3. To test for reverse travel, connect
pressure source to LP housing and
Figure 3-2. "Slipping" Pointer
vent HP housing. Apply pressures
approximately 150% of the DP range.
The pointer should move approximately 5% to 10% below zero.
4. To test for overtravel, connect pressure source to HP housing and vent LP
housing. Apply pressures approximately 150% of DP range. The pointer
should move approximately 5% to 10% above full scale.
5. Apply 0, 50, and 100% of full scale pressure. If indication is within speci-
fied limits, no adjustments are necessary. If indication is not within specified
limits, perform a complete calibration, per paragraph 3-7, page 16.
6. Make sure instrument zero indication is correct; otherwise, repeat step 2.
7. Verify switch set points (refer to paragraph 3-8, page 18).

14
3-5. Pointer Installation and Removal
During adjustment and calibration of the unit, it may be necessary to remove
and reinstall the pointer, per the following procedures:
A. Pointer Installation
1. Position pointer on movement shaft with pointer set at zero scale.
It may be necessary to enlarge the hub hole, using a tapered broach
(included in the toolkit (p/n 0288-1032B).
2. Lightly tap pointer hub with a hand-set or other flat-end tool. Use
perpendicular blows to avoid bending shaft.
3. Check indicating switch for calibration over its entire range (refer
to Switch Calibration in this section). If indicating switch is correctly
calibrated, secure pointer to movement shaft by tapping hub with a
hand-set or other flat-end tool.
B. Pointer Removal
Pointer is removed with Pointer Puller (included in the calibration toolkit
0288-1032B), see Figure 3-3.
1. Slide pointer puller along pointer until pin protruding from tip of screw
in pointer puller is directly over movement shaft and arms of pointer
puller are directly under pointer. POINTER PULLER
2. Gently turn knurled head of
screw clockwise, pushing pin
against movement shaft and
HUB
lifting pointer with arms. Finger
pressure should be sufficient to POINTER
pull the pointer free. If more
pressure is required, an Allen
wrench (inserted into head of
HUB
the screw) can be used. How-
MOVEMENT SHAFT
ever, care should be exercised:
too much pressure can cause the Figure 3-3. Pointer Puller
pin to break. (p/n 0163-0005B)

3-6. Indicator Calibration (DP=Differential Pressure)


1. Securely mount instrument
in an approx. level position
and connect DPU into the
test setup, as described in
the appropriate (separate)
DPU manual.
2. Align linkage between drive
arm and movement, per
Figure 3-4.
3. Check pointer for zero
indication. If necessary, set
pointer to zero, by slipping
pointer on hub, per para-
graph 3-4, step 2.

Figure 3-4. Range/Linearity Adj. (50% DP)


15
3-6. Indicator Calibration (Continued) (DP=Differential Pressure)
4. Apply 100% pressure. If pointer exceeds full-scale, lengthen movement
range arm.
5. Release pressure. Set pointer to zero, by slipping pointer on hub, per para-
graph 3-4, step 2.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5, as necessary, to obtain correct zero/full-scale.
7. Apply 50% DP. If pointer does not indicate 50% scale, a linearity adjust-
ment is necessary. Loosen drive arm screw and move arm to shift pointer
in direction of error a distance of about 10 times linearity error. Tighten
drive arm screw.
8. Release pressure and reset pointer at zero. Check the span. If gear in
movement reaches limit of travel as a result of linearity adjustment (step 7),
slip range arm along gear approximately 5 degrees from normal 37.5 de-
gree angle to approximately 43 degrees (see step 2). Range arm is slipped
by applying pressure to range arm with thumb, while holding gear firmly in
place. Retest pointer response at 50%, 0%, and 100% of full-scale differen-
tial pressure, and adjust linkage until readings are acceptable.
9. Apply 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%, 75%, 50%, 25%, and 0% of full-scale
differential pressure consecutively to instrument without overshoot.
Lightly tap indicator to overcome friction. Pointer should accurately indicate
each applied pressure.
10. Test instrument repeatability by applying 0%, 50%, 0%, 50% of full-scale
differential pressure. Indicator should accurately indicate each applied pres-
sure.
11. Set stops to prevent pointer from striking snubbers on scale. Test setting by
moving pointer from zero position to 50% position manually and then let-
ting pointer return freely. If necessary, tap pointer hub to tighten it to shaft.
3-7. Complete Calibration (See Warning on page 13)
Before performing complete calibration procedure, verify that instrument is out
of calibration, by performing calibration check procedure (para. 3-4, page 14).
If instrument is out of calibration, before performing complete calibration proce-
dure, remove bezel/lens and inspect switch mechanism to verify the following:
• The roller rotates without wobble or binding.
• The cam does not touch the roller side shields.
• The actuator arm moves
freely on its pivot. CAM
Switch Roller
• All switch mounting screws
are tight.
• Linkages are straight and do Actuator Arm
not bind at the pivots. Plunger

3-7. Complete Calibration (Continued) (See Warning on page 13)
A. Calibration Setup
1. Connect lamp or buzzer to switch output leads. Connect a test voltage
to switch input terminals on terminal strip. (A low voltage is recom-
mended for safety.) If relay is installed in instrument, coil voltage must
be applied to switch.
2. Unlock switch plate and move
plate until roller is
positioned at top
of the cam.
3. Advance plunger

al 60° (one flat).

screw 1.5 turns (9 flats).
Linkage Arrangement
B. Calibration Procedure (see Figure 3-6)
To calibrate switch linkage (required when unit is rebuilt):
1. Loosen three linkage screws and turn crank to 12 o’clock position.
2. Use a 1/8-inch Allen wrench to hold index shaft and slip index pointer
to 0 on switch index. Tighten screw on crank to mid-slot position.
3. Turn switch index pointer to “1” (index numbers refer to numbers on
outer edge of scale plate).
4. Apply 10% differential pressure and adjust switch plate until switch
actuates. Lock the two linkage screws.
5. Rotate index pointer to “9.” Apply 90%
differential pressure and adjust crank radius until switch actuates.
6. Recheck 10% and 90% set points. Adjust crank radius and index
pointer until both set points are 2% accurate (nominal).
7. If switch is to be field-set at low differential pressure values (1% or 2%
of pressure range), check crank to prevent a top-dead-center position.
Otherwise, minimum set point position will be restricted and set point
may become reversed.
8. Adjust switch to actuate at desired pressure by applying test pressures
in a decreasing direction, in discrete steps. Allow unit and pressure
system to stabilize. Then change pressure a small amount. The magni-
tude of the pressure change is determined by desired accuracy of test.
Tighten lock screw before testing switch performance.

(Continued on next page...)


17
B. Calibration Procedure (Cont.) (see Fig. 3-6) (See Warning, page 13)
To calibrate switch linkage (required when unit is rebuilt):
8. (Cont.)
The high switch is usually set to actuate at increasing pressure — when
calibrating high switch, apply test pressure in an increasing direction.
This amount of loading will prevent cam-runout of a similar condition.
Excessive plunger loading (more than 3 flats) may cause roller to drag
on cam. Cam friction will be apparent by excessive hysteresis, erratic
pointer readings and inconsistent switch operation.
9. Check switch deadband, (actuate to reset) by applying differential pres-
sures in a decreasing then increasing (opposite for high switch direc-
tion). Observe pressures. To reduce deadband, advance plunger screw
(two flats maximum).
10. Adjust high switch to actuate at desired pressure. The procedure is the
same as for the low switch.
3-8. Changing Switch Setpoint
(Tools: Screwdriver, 1/8 Hex Allen wrench) (See Warning on page 13)
Set Point — The measured pressure at which the snap-switch actuates and
thereby changes the states of the N.O and N.C. contacts. For example, the set
point of the low switch is 24 psid with decreasing pressure.
Deadband — The difference in measured pressures between switch-actuation
and switch-reset. Deadband is usually expressed as percent of full scale (% of
F.S.). Deadband is not adjustable. For example, the switch above was found to
reset at 26.4 psid with increasing pressure. The deadband was 2.4 psi, or 4% of
the full scale (0 to 60 psid).
A. In-Service Instruments (calibration pressures
cannot be applied)
1. Remove bezel/cover. Do not
remove pointer or scale.
2. Insert hex wrench in switch
adjust post, (item A, Fig. 3-7).
3. Loosen switch lock-screw,
(item B), 1/2 to 1 turn.
4. With hex wrench, move index
pointer (item C) to new set
point as indicated on switch
index (item D).
5. If possible, check set point by varying pro-
cess pressures and observing pointer readings
when switch actuates. (Open manifold bypass
valve slowly and watch for “pointer-jump” at
set point or by electrical signal.) Improve set-
ting if necessary, repeat test several times to
verify stability.
Note: Switch index has 10 div., marked 0, 5, and 10.
These match markings on outer edge of scale. Figure 3-7.
Setpoint Adjustment
18
3-8. Changing Switch Setpoint (Cont.) (See Warning on page 13)
A. In-Service (Continued)
Example: Scale has range of 0-60 psid. Set point is 24 psid, with decreas-
ing pressure, (24/60 x 10 = 4). Move index pointer (item C) to division 4.
Start from bottom of switch index (0 on low, 10 on high). Tighten switch
lock (Item B) snug plus 1/4 turn. Do not overtighten.This will place set
point within ±2% of full scale.
B. Out-of-Service (Disconnected from process lines or mounted on bench)
1. Drain and vent housings.
2. Attach calibration pressure source (air or N2) to HP housing.
3. Apply pressures and observe pointer readings for accuracy. Use a pres-
sure standard (Heise gage or equiv.) for reference. Change pressures
slowly in discrete steps. A “bleed-pressure” method may cause errors.
4. Change switch set point as described in Part A.
5. Check set point by changing measured pressure to actuate switch.
For Example: To verify low-switch set point to 24 psid, apply approxi-
mately 30 psi. Then reduce pressure to approximately 25 psid, hold
for a few seconds, then continue in 1/4 psid steps until switch actu-
ates. If set point is incorrect, continue instructions in Part A.
6. To measure switch deadband, reduce pressure to zero, then increase
pressure until switch resets.
7. To verify repeatability of set point, repeat step 5 several times. For
improved accuracy, use smaller increments of pressure. Allow extra
time for slow response gages and for test systems that have long runs
of small bore tubing.
8. High alarm switches right side of the scale) are adjusted in a similar
manner. Apply increasing pressure to establish the switch set point,
decreasing pressure to measure deadband.
C. Notes
1. Always check set point after tightening switch lock screws.
2. Either switch may be set at any point of the scale, except allowance
must be made for deadband to enable switch to reset itself. For ex-
ample, high switch (right side of scale) may be set at 100% of F.S., but
should not be set near zero. Also, low switch may be set at zero, but
not near full scale. (Observe deadband values for specific models).
3. If switch performance is unsatisfactory (set point does not repeat, dead-
band is excessive, pointer exhibits hysteresis, contacts are unstable.
etc.) remove scale and inspect switch and mechanism. Scale is split for
removal without pulling pointer.
4. Switch Variations: (a) SPDT: This is the standard model (low, high, or
both); (b) DPDT: Two switches are stacked and actuated by a single
lever (low, high, or both); (c) Three (or four) SPDT: Switches have
independent switch points - No.1 and 3 are usually low switches set for
decreasing pressures. Nos. 2 and 4 for increasing pressures;
(d) Hermetically Sealed Switch (Micro 11HM41): this switch has
wide deadband, case is modified for electrical clearances, amperes are
reduced for 60 Hz service.
19
3-9. Preventative Maintenance
• Indicating Switch — Periodically inspect alarm switch mechanism to verify
that all mounting screws are seated properly. Inspect linkage for wear.
Inspect integrity of electrical circuits. Tighten as necessary.
• DPU — Warning/Caution notices, inspection/cleaning procedures, and
maintenance procedures are presented in the appropriate (separate) DPU
manual. Do Not perform any maintenance/repair on the instru-
ment or DPU without first reviewing all procedures and Warn-
ing/Caution notices in the separate DPU manual.

3-10. Locking Drive Arm to Torque Tube


Refer to the appropriate (separate) DPU manual. For explosionproof units,
refer to Section 4, 290D Detail Drawing, page 33 (See Warning on page 13).

Figure 3-8. Locking Drive Arm to Torque Tube


1. Slip drive arm over torque tube shaft; clear end of torque-tube housing by
approximately 0.030-inches before securing to prevent interference.
2. To tighten drive arm assembly onto torque-tube shaft:
a. While supporting block/shaft, tighten clamp screw until snug to shaft.
b. Still supporting block/shaft, tighten clamp screw an additional:
• Sintered: 1/3 to 1/2 turn (This screw can normally turn one full
revolution before breaking.)
• Slotted: 1/4 to 1/3 turn (The slot in the slotted clamp block should
still be open.)
NOTICE: For Seismic and High Shock Qualified Units, perform Drive
Arm Tightness Test, per paragraph 3-11.

20
3-11. Drive Arm Tightness Test (See Warning on page 13)
This procedure tests the drive arm to torque tube attachment for tightness, by
applying torque developed by the DPU onto a fixed drive arm. Care should be
taken to apply pressure slowly, as torque is being applied to the connection
through the torque tube drive shaft.
With pointer at normal 0% torque tube rotation position (max. minimum scale
position or 0% on a normal 0 to 100% scale unit), adjust drive arm stop bracket
(or use alternate means) to prevent pointer from moving (stop bracket interferes
with drive arm movement). Note: On reverse acting/split range units, it will be
necessary to pressurize DPU to move pointer to max. minimum scale position,
and on suppressed units, it will be necessary to apply pressure to establish a
reference point to check for "zero" shift.
Pressurize DPU to full calibrated scale DP (100% of full scale range) to achieve
8-degrees of torque tube drive shaft equivalent torque onto the connection.
Observe shift in the unit "zero" following DPU depressurization (as required) and
drive arm stop bracket readjusting (to allow free movement of drive arm and
pointer). A downscale (counter-clockwise) shift in "zero" of greater than 1/2% is
indicative of drive arm slippage necessitating further clamp block tightening.
