MD3018 Mud Density Transmitter

The MD3018 transmitter is designed with Hastelloy C-276 diaphragms for superior corrosion resistance. The transmitter is constructed of all welded 316SST capillary and electronics. This design enables the use of small bore, thick walled capillary to minimize oil volume and subsequent thermal errors due to oil expansion or contraction. The sensor can withstand static pressure and over pressures to 2000 psi. The sensing assembly is electrically isolated from the process media by an insulating glass seal. This prevents damage to the transmitter electronics caused by process borne electrical transients. The MD3018 is ideally suited for such applications as mud density measurements in oil drilling sites where the entire transmitter (including electronics) can be submerged in the drilling mud for excellent thermal accuracy.

Key performance characteristics of the MD3018 are:

  • Pressure Range of 0-30 inches H2O (8.33 PPG to 20.0 PPG).
  • Static accuracy better than +/-0.25% URL
  • Certified Explosion Proof and Intrinsically Safe to FM, CSA, and CENELEC requirements
