INSTALLATION
2.1 UNPACKING THE RECORDER
When unpacking the recorder, be careful not to damage any associated thermal capillary
systems if so equipped. Remove all protective cushioning material, cardboard guards, and
shipping tape. Check the accessory mounting kit (if included) for completeness.
Instruments may be shipped with pens or pointers secured in a fixed position. If so, remove
any tape, elastics or packing material as required. Do not apply excessive force to linkages
or mechanisms while unpacking as they can be thrown out of calibration or permanently
damaged.
2.2 SELECTING A LOCATION
When choosing a site for the instrument, select one that is convenient to both the process
and operator. Avoid areas where dirt, dust, and corrosive fumes are excessive and also
areas where vibration is encountered. Make sure that operating temperature limits given
for certain models in are within specifications. If ambient conditions are out of this range,
excessive errors and poor performance will result. Prolonged exposure to extreme
environmental conditions may eventually cause instrument failure.
2.3 INSTALLING THE RECORDER
Before installation is attempted, make sure that the selected area provides sufficient
clearance for the door to swing open. There should also be enough clearance for any back or
bottom connections to enter the instrument.
Since some measuring systems are position sensitive, the instrument must be installed so
that it is reasonably level on both its horizontal and depth axis (x and z). This will ensure
that it operates in its factory-calibrated position.
2.3.1 Wall (Surface) Mounting
For this type of installation the instrument is fastened to a wall or flat surface using the
three, reversible mounting brackets contained in the accessory kit. The brackets are
mounted at the rear of the recorder as shown in Figure 2-1. Drill starting holes for each
bracket at the required distances. Insert lag bolts or screws through the bracket holes and
tighten each until the case is secure.
2.3.2 Panel (Flush) Mounting
Provide a proper size cutout as required. Install the instrument in the opening using the
reversible mounting brackets and tension bolts as shown in Figure 2-2. Tighten each
tension bolt until the instrument is rigid and self-supporting. Secure the bolt locking nuts
to maintain the tension setting.

Installation / 2-5
2.3.3 Rear Pipe Mount
This mount attaches to a two-inch pipe as shown in Figure 2-3. Two locking screws are used
to secure the instrument at the desired height. The pipe may be cemented into the ground,
welded or clamped to a bracket, beam, pipe, etc., or pedestal mounted.
2.3.4 Portable (Table Top) Cases
When portable recorders are used for tabletop applications, no installation is required other
than leveling. The leveling feet are shown in Figure 2-4.
2.4 REVERSIBLE CONNECTION PLATES
Recorders contain a connection plate that provides a maximum of four connection ports.
This plate is adaptable for either bottom or back-fed connections. It is used in conjunction
with a solid plate that occupies the unused opening.
For bottom connections, the plates are positioned as shown in Figure 2-5. For back
connections, the connection plate and the solid plate positions are transposed using the
same hardware.
Figure 2-5 - Reversible Connection Plate
2-6 / Installation
CI-53011/53012
2.5 IDENTIFYING THE PORT CONNECTIONS
Numbers embossed on the plate (1 to 4) (rear or bottom) identify the four ports associated
with the Universal Connection Plate. These ports are typically assigned for pressure
connections or as a feed through for capillary tubing associated with pressurized thermal
systems. On models with electrical chart drives or alarms, one of the four ports will be
assigned for the line cord or electrical conduit.
Each port assigned for a measured variable (pressure or temperature) is marked by a
colored dot. These dots correspond to pens marked by the same colored dots. The number
and range of each pen is listed on the specifications data plate affixed to the instrument
door.
Figure 2-6 - Standard Assignments for Pressure & Temperature Recorders
CI-53011/53012
Installation / 2-7
The standard factory assignments for 1 to 2-pen recorders is shown in Figure 2-6. Note
that on 1 and 2-pen models, a specific port is designated for use with electrical conduit.
Some special attachments may utilize vacant ports for applications such as case purging. In
these instances an appropriate label will be attached to identify the function.
Under some circumstances, the purchaser may specify port assignments that do not conorm with the schemes shown in Figure 2-6. The installer should carefully check the
specifications data plate and pen color codes before making any connections.
2.6 PERFORMING ELECTRICAL WIRING
Whenever electrical options are furnished with an instrument, the wiring terminals will be
contained inside the recorder case behind the chart plate. To remove the chart plate, refer
to Section 3A. Labels affixed to the terminals provide identification for AC power connections and options.
2.6.1 Electrical Conduit
The port or opening assigned to bring in electrical wiring is identified in Figure 2-6. If the
recorder plugs into a regular power outlet, this opening should contain a rubber or plastic
grommet to protect the wire. If the recorder connects to a metal-encased conduit, a screw-in
conduit clamp (not furnished) should be installed in the opening to secure the conduit.
2.6.2 AC Power Connections
Instruments may be furnished for 120Vac, 50 or 60 Hz operation. Make sure that the
voltage listed on the specifications data plate conforms with the local power source. Using
the wrong supply voltage can result in instrument burnout.
WARNING
No wiring should be attempted while the
unit is powered and operating. If any
rewiring is required, the equipment power
source, as well as power sources for
external options such as alarms, must be
turned off to prevent electrical shock.
On basic recorders with electronic chart drives, AC power connections are made directly to
the drive terminals. These terminals may be identified by L1 andL2 labels or by respective
black and white leads of the motor. The connections are made as shown in Figure 2-7.
The green grounding screw inside the case provides a direct connection to the instrument
housing. It is essential that this screw be connected to an approved earth ground to provide
maximum safety for users.
WARNING
Instruments equipped with an Electrical
Alarm Unit must be properly grounded to
protect users from electrical shock and
2-8 / Installation
CI-53011/53012
possible fatal injury. Grounding should be
performed in accordance with the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/ISA standard S82.01,
S82.02 and S82.03 and local regulations.
If the recorder is wired for an AC power outlet, a three-prong plug must be used. The greencoded prong of the plug must be wired to the green grounding screw of the recorder.
If the AC wiring is brought in through a metal power conduit, the green grounding screw of
the recorder must be wired to an approved ground.
Figure 2-7 - Connections for Recorders with Electric Chart Drive
and No Other Electrical Options
2.6.3 Alarm and Pump Control Connections
When a recorder is specified with an Electric Alarm Unit or Pump Control Unit, the
connections shown in Figure 2-7 do not apply. The AC power connections are made to a
separate terminal block that includes terminals for alarm contacts. To identify these
connections, refer to either Appendix YB - Electric Alarm Units or Appendix YC – Pump
Control Units.
2.7 SETTING UP THE MEASURING SYSTEM
Each measuring system is unique and requires different setup strategies. The installation
and operating techniques for each type are referenced as follows:
• Pressure Models (Gauges) & 3-15 psi Pneumatic Receiver Models
See Appendix GA - Pressure Measuring Systems for installation and application details.
2.8 REFERENCE DIMENSIONS FOR GENERAL PURPOSE CASES

OPERATION OF CHART DRIVES
3A.1 GENERAL INFORMATION
Series 53011 to 53012 Round Chart Recorders utilize a gear-reduction motor to drive the
center hub. Rotation of the chart is in a counterclockwise direction when viewed from the
front of the instrument.
Recorders may be specified with standard or optional chart drive arrangements. The
standard chart drive is either spring-wound (single or dual speed) or battery operated
(multi-speed). Although single-speed drives are standard, some spring-wound types have
dual-speed capabilities while the battery operated chart drive offers 11 selectable speeds
and an OFF position. The dual-speed types include a gear lever for changing speeds. The
type of drive furnished with a recorder is listed on the specifications data plate.
Figure 3A-1 - Operating Components
CI-53011/53012
Operation of Chart Drives / 3A-1
3A.2 INSTALLING THE CHART
The circular paper chart (8-inch diameter) is held against the chart plate as shown in
Figure 3A-1. The installation procedure is provided as follows:
1. Open the recorder door to gain access to the interior. The door latch lifts up to release
the latch.
2. Release the pen lifter rod from the upper guide slot holder and move it downward to
raise the pen/s from the chart.
CAUTION
Never force a pen arm toward either side of
its resting position because some arms may
be coupled to measuring devices with little
or no give. Damage to the pen arm or
linkage may result if the strain is excessive.
3. Slide the chart hub clip shown in Figure 3A-1 toward its rounded end and flip it upwards to unlock it.
4. Lift the old chart from the bottom to clear the hub and remove it from the recorder.
5. Insert the new chart beneath the pens while maneuvering its center hole over the hub.
Position the chart so that the upper part is under the guide slot and the left part is under the time index.
6. Rotate the chart by hand until the desired starting time on the chart is indicated by the
time index.
NOTE
On multi-pen recorders the time index corresponds to the arc traced by the #1 pen.
The other pens will trace slightly different
arcs because of their longer lengths.
Flip the chart hub clip down and slide it horizontally to lock the chart into position.
7. Push the pen lifter rod upward to lower the pens on the chart. Place the pen lifter back
in its holder (upper guide slot). The chart installation procedure is complete.
3A.3 OPERATING CHART DRIVES
Four types of chart drives offered for recorders. The operation of each type is discussed
below.
3A.3.1 Single-Speed, Spring-Wound Drives
These drives contain a key winding shaft as shown in Figure 3A-2. To wind the drive, it is
first necessary to remove the paper chart. An opening will be found in the chart plate that
3A-2 / Operation of Chart Drives
CI-53011/53012
lines up with the shaft. Insert the key into this opening, over the square-end shaft, and
wind the key in a clockwise direction. When wound, the motor operates continuously; there
is no off position.
Single-speed drives contain an adjustment to compensate for minor mechanical speed
variations. On many models, this adjustment is accessible through an opening in the chart
plate. On other models it may be necessary to remove the chart plate.
The actual speed can be checked against a stopwatch by measuring the time required for a
selected chart interval to pass by the time index. If the measured lapsed time does not
coincide with the time period of the chart interval, insert a screwdriver into the screw slot
and turn the adjustment to the left to reduce the speed, or to the right to increase it. Do not
turn the adjustment more than one increment for each test.
Figure 3A-2 - Single-Speed, Spring-Wound Chart Drive
3A.3.2 Dual-Speed, Spring Wound Drives
Dual-speed drives, shown in Figure 3A-3, are hand wound in the same manner as described
for single-speed drives. The drive operates immediately after winding. (Note that some
earlier version drives were not self-starting. To start these versions, rotate the starter knob
in the direction shown and release it. Repeat this procedure if necessary.)
Select the desired speed by moving the speed shift lever in either direction. For some
recorder models it will be necessary to remove the chart plate to access this lever. For other
models this step is not required since an opening is provided in the chart plate to access the
lever.
CI-53011/53012

Figure 3A-3 - Dual-Speed, Spring-Wound Chart Drive
Figure 3A-4 - Battery Powered Chart Drive
3A-4 / Operation of Chart Drives
CI-53011/53012
NOTE:
The speed shift lever operates tightly and
requires a firm movement to change speeds.
The speed of the dual-speed drive may be tested in the same manner as described for
single-speed drives. Note that setting the speed adj. screw for one speed automatically corrects the second speed. In general, it is recommended that calibration be performed at the
drives lowest speed. However, if preferred, the user may calibrate the most frequently used
speed.
3A.3.3 Battery Powered Chart Drives
Battery drives use a single, 1.5 V, alkaline-type, C cell to provide power. The cell is contained in an compartment behind the pop-out cover shown in Figure 3A-4. The drive begins
operating when the cell is installed; there is no power switch on the drive.
The rotational speed of the battery drive is determined by a programmer module that plugs
into a mating socket. The module furnished with a drive will correspond with the drive
speed listed on the instrument data plate. Additional programmer chips may be stocked by
the user to obtain a selection of several speeds.
3A.4 REMOVAL OF CHART PLATE
The chart plate must be removed to gain access to the chart drive, wiring terminals, and
other internal components. The removal procedure is described as follows:
WARNING
Dangerous voltages are present in recorder
models equipped with electric chart drives
(120 Vac) or with electrically powered
options such as alarms. Remove all power
from electric drives and electric options
before performing maintenance procedures
or service checks.
1. Unlatch the pen lifter from the upper guide slot and move it downward to raise the
pen/s from the chart.
2. Remove the chart paper (if present) as previously described under the topic, INSTALLING THE CHART on page 3A-2.
3. Depress the spring clips on each side of the chart plate while simultaneously lifting the
bottom of the plate outward. Once the chart plate is disengaged, release the clips.
Maneuver the chart plate downward and outward to clear the chart hub and pens;
carefully place the chart plate aside.
4. Perform interior service adjustments or checks as required.
5. When replacing the chart plate, slowly guide the upper part of the plate into the upper
hook brackets while simultaneously pushing the lower part inward to engage the spring
clips. The chart plate snaps into place when pushed inward.
CI-53011/53012
Operation of Chart Drives / 3A-5
6. Replace the chart and lower the pens. Place the pen lifter back into its holder.
3A.5 SETTING THE TIME INDEX
The time index shown in Figure 3A-1 must point to the arc traced by the pen. On multi-pen
recorders, the time index must correspond with the arc of the #1 pen (shortest length pen
arm). All other pen arcs on multi-pen models will offset from this point by a fixed amount.
Users will encounter a screw-type and a snap-on type time index. To set the screw type,
loosen the screw, position the index on the edge of the chart plate as required, and fingertighten the screw to secure the position. To set the snap-on type, pry it off the edge of the
chart plate, align it with the proper pen, and press it back firmly into the plate edge.
3A.6 CHART DRIVE MAINTENANCE NOTES
General maintenance and service checks are provided herein for the three types of chart
drives. Refer to the appropriate procedure for your drive.
3A.6.1 Spring-Wound Types
These motors are factory-lubricated and do not require routine maintenance other than
external cleaning. If the drive fails to operate, factory repairs or replacement may be
required.
3A.6.2 Battery Type (1.5 Vdc)
These motors do not require routine maintenance other than replacing a worn out cell. If
the drive does not turn, check that the cell output is 1.5 V under load. Also check the cell
compartment for possible leakage and corrosion; clean compartment as required. Use only
size C-size alkaline cells for replacements.
3A.6.3 Electric Types (120Vac - 60Hz)
These motors do not require routine maintenance other than external cleaning. If the drive
does not turn, check that unit is plugged-into a good 110/120Vac (60Hz) source. If the drive
fails to operate, factory repairs or replacement may be required.
3A-6 / Operation of Chart Drives
CI-53011/53012
Section 3B
OPERATION OF PEN SYSTEMS
3B.1 TYPES OF PEN SYSTEMS
Recorders are furnished with one or two fiber tip pens. The fiber tip pen is a factory-filled
cartridge that is discarded when the ink supply is consumed. Fountain Pens are no longer
provided with new units.
3B.2 FIBER TIP PEN CARTRIDGES
Fiber Tip Pens (Figure 3B-1) provide the user with the convenience of disposable cartridges.
Each cartridge has a capacity of approximately 700 feet (213 meters) of writing. A fresh
supply of ink is obtained each time the cartridge is changed. The fiber tip pen provides
uniform ink flow, high clarity and reliable writing. No cleaning or maintenance is required.
3B.2.1 Conversion from Fountain Pen to Fiber Tip Cartridge
Fiber Tip Pen Cartridges can also be installed in older recorder models equipped with
fountain pen assemblies. A holding clip furnished with the fiber tip pen is used to secure
the cartridge. On certain older models the pen arm will not accommodate the cartridge due
to a ridge running along the arm length. For these models, the arms must be re-mounted
inward so that the ridge faces inside the recorder enclosure.
3B.2.2 Excessive Ink Consumption
If it is found that the recorder is consuming an excessive amount of cartridges, the
measurement application could be the problem. High ink consumption can sometimes be
traced to a measured variable that generates continuous wide swings or one that oscillates
or jitters. An untuned or poorly controlled process can cause continuous wide swings. Oscillation may indicate an oversensitive control valve that requires damping.
3B.2.3 Replacing Cartridges
Fiber Tip Pen Cartridges are furnished in packages of six in the color specified by the
purchaser. When replacing cartridges of multi-pen recorders, make sure that the ink color
matches the color dot on the pen arm.
The procedure for replacing cartridges is given below. A small, flat-edge tool such as a
screwdriver may be required to pry off the holding clip.
1. Unpack a new Fiber Tip Pen Cartridge and carefully remove the cap covering the pen
tip. Do not touch the pen tip.
2. Unlock the pen lifter from its holder and pull it downward to raise the pen/s from the
chart.
3. Unsnap the holding clip shown in Figure 3B-1. Use a small screwdriver to pry out an
outer edge of the clip. Discard the clip and the empty cartridge.

Operation of Pen System / 3B-1
Figure 3B-1 - Installation of Fiber Tip Pen Cartridge
4. Position the new cartridge on the arm. Fit the nib of the pen into the ‘V’ slot of the pen
arm.
5. While holding the cartridge in place, position the new holding clip behind the pen arm
and snap it in place. Make sure the outer end of the holding clip snaps over the outer
ridges of the pen cartridge.
6. Raise the pen lifter and place it back into its holder. The pen should begin tracing on
the chart.
3B.3 REMOVAL OF PEN ARM
The flexible pen arm can be removed for service or replacement. This is accomplished by
loosening the detachment screw on the pen mounting assembly (Figure 3B-2) and pulling
the arm downward to free it from the mounting. Once the arm is removed, inspect it for dirt
or film. If necessary, clean the arm using hot water and detergent. Rinse the arm thoroughly and dry.
3B-2 / Operation of Pen System
CI-53011/53012
When reinstalling the pen arm, push it snugly against the shoulder head on the pen
mounting. Make sure the notch in the arm fits into the shoulder head so that the travel arc
of the pen is maintained. Tighten the detachment screw moderately to secure the arm
position.

CALIBRATION
4.1 GENERAL NOTES
Bristol Babcock instruments employ a three-element linkage arrangement to transfer
motion from the measuring element to the pen arm. The calibration of the instrument is
determined by mechanical relationship that exists between the linkages and the driving
and driven mechanisms.
4.1.1 Calibration Equipment
In order to check calibration, it is necessary to supply precise input test levels equivalent to
0%, 50% and 100% of the instrument span. This will require an appropriate Pressure
Regulator and Precision Test Gauge.
Note: Accuracy of control and monitoring equipment should be five to ten times better
than that given for the measuring system in Section 5 - SPECIFICATIONS of this
manual. Typical accuracy of test equipment should be from ±0.1% to ±.01%.
4.1.2 Linkage Configurations
Each recorder uses a three-element linkage whose mechanical placement varies with the
type of model. The linkage may be arranged in two distinct configurations identified as H
and N. These configurations are shown in Figures 4-1 and 4-2.
The H-type linkage is used where output motion of the measuring element is in the same
direction as the input motion applied to the pen. The measuring element moves the driving
arm, connecting link, driven arm, and the pen arm. Depending on the positioning of components in the instrument, this linkage may appear in a horizontal, vertical or angular
plane. Similarly, the roles of the driving and driven arms may be reversed in some models
for design reasons. Regardless of the physical positioning of the linkage, the relationship
and movement between each element remains the same.
Figure 4-1- Typical H-Type Arrangement
CI-53011/53012
Calibration / 4-1
The N-type shown in Figure 4-2 shows the same components identified for the H-type but
in a slightly different configuration. Since the connecting link connects between the top of
the driving arm and the bottom of driven arm, the transferred motion is reversed. The Ntype linkage is used in instruments where the output motion of the measuring element is
opposite to that applied to the pen. The design arrangements for N-type linkages can vary
in the same manner as described for H-type linkages
Figure 4-2 - Typical N-Type Arrangement
4.1.3 Accessing Calibration Adjustments
Figure 4-3 identifies the calibration adjustments associated with the measuring element,
linkage, and pen arm. Since many of these adjustments are concealed behind the chart
plate, it will be necessary for the reader to fabricate a rigid test chart with a cut-away
section to permit accessibility. Proceed as follows:
1. Paste or glue an unused chart to a piece of thin, rigid cardboard. Do not allow any
wrinkles to form.
2. When dry, cut the cardboard to conform with the circular shape of the chart. Then cut
out approximately 150 degrees of chart area leaving the center hole intact.
3. Remove the chart plate from the recorder.
4.
Place the test chart on the chart hub and rotate it to a starting point where the
calibration adjustments are accessible and the pen has sufficient area to write.
5. Secure the chart position by locking the chart hub clip. Proceed with calibration as
required.
4.2 PRELIMINARY CALIBRATION CHECKS
The preliminary checks described herein will determine the need for instrument calibration. Under no circumstances should any adjustments be made until this procedure is
complete.

4.2.1 Calibration Check Points

4.2.2 Test Procedure
After the equipment has been set up, proceed as follows:
1. Apply a 0% test input to the recorder and compare the chart reading with that indicated
by the test monitoring device.
2. Repeat this test with 50% and 100% test points.
3. If the recorder readings are within ±0.5% of the test input, no calibration is required. If
not, proceed to Section 4.3 - DESCRIPTION OF CALIBRATION ADJUSTMENTS on
this page and Section 4.4 - CALIBRATION PROCEDURE on page 4-4.
4.3 DESCRIPTION OF CALIBRATION ADJUSTMENTS
The linkage provides adjustment of zero, span and linearity. The use of these adjustments
are described as follows:
4.3.1 Zero Adjustments
The zero adjustments are located on the driving arm as shown in Figure 4-3. The fine zero
consists of a slotted screw adjustment, while the coarse zero consists of two locking screws
that permit the driving arm to be repositioned on its shaft.
A zero adjustment is performed when the percentage of error is consistent throughout the
range. Zeroing moves the entire range up or down without having any significant effect on
span or linearity. Zero adjustments will correct most calibration errors and are the simplest
to make.
4.3.2 Span Adjustment
This adjustment, which is located at the junction of the driving arm and connecting link,
consists of a knurled wheel and two locking screws to secure the adjustment (Figure 4-3).
This adjustment affects the upper limit of the range. It is only adjusted if a zero correction,
cannot bring the upper limit within tolerance. Span adjustments tend to interact slightly
with the zero. Each should be checked several times for optimum accuracy.
4.3.3 Linearity Adjustment
The linearity adjustment consists of two locking screws on the connecting link that permit
adjustment of the length of the link (Figure 4-3). This adjustment compensates for poor
CI-53011/53012
Calibration / 4-3
linearity of the output curve such that crowding or spreading occurs at either half of the instrument range. Linearity errors produce unequal half outputs in either the 0-50% or 50100% half of the scale.
Figure 4-3 - Pen Linkage Adjustments (H-Type)
Linearity adjustments also interact with zero and span adjustments. It is the most difficult
of the three adjustments to make and should not be attempted until it is absolutely certain
that misadjustment of zero and span is not the cause.
4.4 CALIBRATION PROCEDURE
The procedures for setting the zero, span and linearity adjustments are described in the
following steps:
1. Check the recorder at the 0%, 50% and 100% test levels as described in Section 4.2
PRELIMINARY CALIBRATION CHECK.
2. If a consistent error occurs at all three test points, reset the test input back to the 0%
level and adjust the fine zero screw (Figure 4-3) to correct the error.
3. Re-apply a 100% test input. If the error is eliminated, calibration is complete. If the
error is still present, loosen the two span locking screws and set the span wheel to
correct. Secure the span screws when adjustments are complete.
4. If necessary, alternately repeat steps 2 and 3 until span and zero are within tolerance.
5. To check linearity, apply test inputs of 20%, 40%, 60% and 80%. If crowding or
spreading errors are observed, linearity calibration will be required.
4-4 / Calibration
CI-53011/53012
6. Apply a 50% input and note the error difference displayed on the chart. Multiply the error difference by 2.
7. Loosen the linearity locking screws and adjust the connecting link to a length
equivalent to the computed error (error difference x 2) in the opposite direction.
For example, if a recorder having a 0-100 psi range reads 48 psi for a 50% input, the
error difference is 50 - 48 psi = 2 psi. Therefore, the computed error difference is 2 x 2 =
4 psi. To provide an initial starting point, the linkage is adjusted to shift the error from
48 to 52 psi. This effectively increase the lower span half to 52 psi while reducing the
upper span half to 48 psi, a condition that is totally opposite to the original error.
8. Once the linkage has been set to the new error value, secure the linearity locking screws
and repeat steps 1 through 6.
9. If linearity crowding or spreading error persists at either end of the instrument range
regardless of how often calibration is attempted, unlock the snap fitting on the connecting link and try using hole #2 on the driven arm (Figure 4-3). Use a small screwdriver to unlock and secure the snap fitting.
10. Be sure to recheck zero and span after each linearity adjustment. Calibration is complete when the readings at all check points are within tolerance.

A. DESCRIPTION
The pressure measuring system of an instrument will consist of a helical or capsular
measuring element that either positions a pointer on a scale, or a pen on a chart. The
helical type is essentially a hollow metal coil that winds or unwinds with changes in
pressure, while the capsular type consists of a bellows assembly that expands or contracts
with pres-sure changes.
Helical elements are used to measure pressures ranges from 0-30 to 0-10000 psi. Capsular
elements are used to measure more sensitive pressure ranges from 0-1 in./water to 0-200
psi. The actual range furnished will be found on the instrument data plate.
Pressure elements may be constructed of 316 stainless steel, Ni-Span C or phosphor bronze
materials to match the needs of the process application. The type of material furnished for

B. PRESSURE CONNECTIONS
The pressure connection consists of 1/2" NPT threaded opening in the case. The location of
this connection is identified in the installation section of the manual. Note that instruments
are shipped from the factory with a protective cap over the port. This cap should be removed
once the instrument case is mounted.
Piping Material and Size
Plastic or copper tubing can be used for most general purpose applications. However, some
installations may require tubing or pipe made of steel or special alloys. It is suggested that
you review the application before making a choice.
The response time of a pressure instrument to an actual change of pressure is a function of
the diameter and length of the connecting line. For some applications involving very long
runs, these delays may be sufficient to slow down measurements. In general, fast response
will be obtained for distances up to 300 feet using 1/4 inch tubing (inside diameter). For
distances up to 500 feet, the use of 3/8 inch is recommended.
Unions & Shutoffs
A union connection and shutoff valve may be installed at the pressure port of the instrument. These items will provide a convenient means to disconnect the instrument from
the line for maintenance procedures without disrupting the pressure source. Examples of
the use of these items are shown in Figures 4 through 9.
Service Tees with Plug
A tee connected in the pressure line allows the pressure source to be accessed for service or
calibration checks. The tee includes a removable plug for bleeding the pressure line of air
pockets and moisture.

Issue: 04/03
G6000
Needle Valves & Pulsation Dampers
Some unregulated pressure sources may produce rapid fluctuations or oscillations on the
line which result in erratic readings at the instrument. These fluctuations, if continued over
a long period, accelerate mechanical wear of the measuring system and pivot points.
For minor cases, installing a needle valve in the line close to the instrument will minimize
the problem. In operation, the valve smooths out pulsations by restricting them through an
adjustable orifice. A proper setting is determined by experimenting with different valve
openings until steady readings are obtained.
In cases where severe oscillation or transients are present on the line a needle valve may
not prove adequate and a pulsation damper is recommended. This device contains an
adjustable needle valve and piston arrangement to regulate the pressure. The piston, whose
lateral movement is controlled by changes of input pressure, closes the valve on pressure
peaks and opens it on pressure drops. As such, the output pressure remains relatively
constant. The valve is adjusted in small increments until steady pressure readings are
achieved.
C. BASIC MEASUREMENT OF AIR, GAS OR LIQUID
A basic installation that connects the instrument to a pressurized air, gas or liquid main is
shown in Figure 4. The upper arrangement of this illustration employs a process valve,
needle valve, bleed valve and a union connection. The lower arrangement deletes the needle
valve and substitutes a pulsation damper. The use of these options was described in topic B.
The application of Figure 4 is chiefly intended for measurement of non-caustic process
substances that will not react with materials specified for the measuring element, fittings,
and accessory devices. However, these installations can also be used with caustic substances
providing that the measuring element and accessories are classified for such service. Since
such materials can add significant cost to the installation, the more economic arrangements
of topic D should be considered.
NOTE
All warranties for the instrument and accessories
provided by Bristol Babcock are void if the conigurations of Figure 4 are used to measure caustic subtances with under-classified instrument materials.
Air/Gas Installations
This type of system should be bled at the time of installation and periodically during normal
usage. Prior to bleeding, the process valve and needle valve (or pulsation damper) must be
opened and the bleed valve closed. The bleed valve is then opened until moisture stops
spitting out of the valve's discharge. Once pressure flow is uniform, the bleed valve is closed
and the needle valve (or pulsation damper) is adjusted for normal operation.
CI-53011/53012
GA-5
Pressure Measuring System
G6000
Issue: 04/03
Figure 4 - Basic Pressure Measurement Application
Liquid Installations
A requirement of these installations is that the pressurized liquid come in direct contact
with the instrument measuring element. In order for the instrument to provide accurate
and stable readings, the liquid must be free of air bubbles or pockets. Therefore, the lines
must be bled at the time of installation. Bleeding is performed in the same manner as
described for air/gas systems except that the bleed valve is kept open until the valve's
discharge stops spitting and the liquid flow is uniform.
D. MEASUREMENT OF CAUSTIC SUBSTANCES
If the materials used for the instrument measuring system and external accessories are
under-classified for measurement of caustic substances, some form of physical isolation
between the instrument and the process must be provided. This is achieved by using an
isolation device whose material is rated for the measured medium.

Diaphragm Seal
This type of seal consists of a diaphragm that divides two chambers. In Figure 5, the left
side is in contact with the process media, while the right side is in contact with a liquid
sealant. Pressure variations occurring on the process side are transmitted by the flexible
diaphragm to the sealant. The compression and release of the fluid produces a corresponding change of pressure is sensed by the measuring element of the instrument.
Force Balance Seal
An arrangement using a Force Balance Seal is shown in Figure 6. This system, generally
used for pressure ranges from 0-12 in/H2O to 0-100 psi, requires an external air supply to
operate the seal mechanism.
Essentially, the Force Balance Seal obtains isolation through the use of a metallic
diaphragm coupled to an air valve arrangement. Compressed air applied to the input of the
instrument must pass through the air valve. Changes of process pressure cause the
diaphragm to move left or right and transmit a lateral motion to the air valve. For an
increase of process pressure the diaphragm causes the air valve to close so that less air is
bled to the atmosphere and more is supplied to the instrument. For a decrease of process
pressure, the air valve bleeds more air into the atmosphere so that less is available for the
instrument. In this manner, the instrument's measuring element tracks pressure variations
of the process.
Also recommended for use with a Force Balance Seal is a differential pressure regulator.
This device regulates pressure variations across the seal for improved stability and
measurement accuracy.
E. MEASUREMENT OF VISCOUS OR SOLIDIFYING FLUIDS
Liquids that tend to thicken or solidify at ambient temperatures must be kept out of the
measuring element to prevent damage. In the application of Figure 7, a purge system connected to the instrument input line is used to isolate the process media. A typical purge
system employs a medium such as water or air that is forced into the input line under heavy
pressure. The pressure applied to the medium is generally 2 to 3 times greater than the
process pressure.
In operation, the purging medium is forced into the junction of a process tee shown at the
left of the bubbler valve. The resultant pressure cushion against the process medium offers
resistance to the purge liquid and prevents mixing of fluids. However, if the process pressure falls near or below the purge pressure, the purge liquid will flow into the process line.
Therefore, the bubbler valve must be adjusted so that little or no leakage occurs at the
lowest pressure to be measured.
Two precautions must be observed when using a bubbler-type purge system. First, the
purging fluid must not produce any dangerous reaction when it combines with the process
medium. Second, the process material and purging liquid must have a compatible chemical
base so that there is no separation of the process medium. And finally, the purging medium
flowing into the process must be kept adjusted to a minimum amount to prevent overdilution of the final product.

F. MEASUREMENT OF STEAM OR HOT VAPORS
When the process medium is steam or condensing vapors, certain precautions must be
observed. In order to protect the instrument measuring system, the temperature of the
medium at the input of the instrument must not exceed 150 ºF (65 ºC). This protection can
be achieved as follows:
Instrument Mounted Below Connection
This configuration, shown at the top of Figure 8, is an arrangement whereby the instrument
is automatically protected from high temperatures due to the formation of condensate in the
pressure line. As long as the line is sloped downward as shown, the steam or vapors will
condense to liquid and act as a sealant. The sealant functions as a temperature barrier and
prevent steam from getting into the instrument.
Instrument Mounted Above Connection
When the instrument is above the level of the steam main, any accumulated condensate will
flow back into the main by gravity. To prevent this, a coil-type trap is installed near the
instrument as shown in the lower drawing of Figure 8. The trap maintains a limited amount
of liquid in the coil to act as a barrier. For this type of system, the pressure line must
CI-53011/53012
GA-9

initially be primed with water to protect the measuring element from overheating before
condensate can form.
Figure 8 - Steam Pressure Installation
G. VACUUM MEASUREMENTS
Pressure instruments with appropriate ranges (-30 to 0 in./Hg) can also be used for vacuum
measurements. Figure 9 illustrates the techniques for above and below-main type installations.
Although air is pulled out of the element and connection line during measurements, it might
be assumed that the problem of isolation can be ignored. However, a major problem with
Pressure Measuring System
GA-10
CI-53011/53012
Issue: 04/03
G6000
vacuum instruments occurs when the vacuum is suddenly released. At that moment oil,
grease, dirt or other undesirable substances in the line may be sucked into the measuring
system. If allowed to build up, this matter can influence the accuracy and performance of
instrument measurements. The use of seals and filters should be considered when dirty
vacuum lines are encountered.
Figure 9 - Vacuum Measurement Application
H. LIQUID LEVEL MEASUREMENTS
Pressure instruments may also be specified for liquid level measurement applications. For
these situations, the measuring element measures the pressure head of a column of liquid
contained in an open tank or vat. The pressure measurements are read on an instrument
scale calibrated in units that correspond to the height of the tank.
Instrument at Zero Line of Tank
Figure 10-A shows an application where the tank has a 0-30 foot measuring range. If the
instrument is installed so that the pressure element is at the 0% reference level of the tank,
the instrument readings should correlate with the level of the liquid even though the connecting pipe is lower than the zero reference line. In theory, the connecting pipe could be
any desired length and distance below the tank, however, this approach has some
limitations. If a minor zero offset error is observed at the instrument, a correction can be
made by using the Zero Adj. on the MV linkage. For more details, refer to the calibration
section of this manual.

Instrument Below Zero Line of Tank
Figure 10-B shows the instrument installed 3 feet below the 0% reference line of the tank.
Because of the additional 3-foot head present in the connecting line, the instrument will
show a +3 foot error for all readings. Although this error can be mentally calculated, it is
more convenient to recalibrate the instrument for direct scale readings. Refer to the calibration section of this manual for details.
Instrument Above Zero Line of Tank
Figure 10-C shows the instrument installed 3 feet above the 0% reference line. This results
in a -3 foot error for all readings. This error can be corrected by calibration adjustments.
Refer to the calibration section of this manual for details.

Specific Gravity Correction
When an instrument intended for liquid level measurement applications leaves our factory,
it will be calibrated for the value of SG (Specific Gravity) specified by the purchaser.
However, if the type of liquid is changed, a SG error will be introduced into the readings.
The amount of error can be calculated by the following formula:
±PSI = h (SG)/2.3097
Where:
h=
SG =
±PSI =

I. LOW-RANGE PRESSURE MEASUREMENTS
Instruments with sensitive low-range pressure elements can be affected by changes in
barometric pressure and room pressure. In general, these instruments should not be installed in rooms having exhaust or intake fans. Installations near air conditioners, forced
air heater ducts, oscillating fans and breezy windows should also be avoided. Opening and
closing the door of a tight room can also cause a momentary variation in the reading.
J. MEASUREMENT AT TEMPERATURE EXTREMES
When the temperature of the measured medium is above or below instrument specifications,
modifications of the system will be required. A failure to do so may result in inaccurate
readings or, in extreme cases, damage to the measuring system and the instrument. Observe the following suggestions before installing instruments in these environments.
High Temperature Extremes
The high temperature limits of an instrument are usually exceeded when the measured
medium is steam or hot vapors. The techniques for correcting this situation involve the use
of a liquid vapor barrier or a steam seal that isolates the medium from the instrument. More
information on this application is given under topic F.
Low Temperature Extremes
Instruments mounted outdoors or in unheated areas may be subject to freezing conditions.
To maintain proper operation, both the instrument and the pressure line must be protected
from freezing. In moderately cold climates where evening temperatures fall below freezing
for short periods, the case can be protected by installing it in an insulated enclosure. Sufficient protection can be achieved for the line by wrapping it with insulation. This method
will provide reasonable protection from night time freezing provided that daytime
temperatures average 45 °F or higher.
Areas subject to prolonged freezing will require a weatherproof enclosure having an
electrical heater-thermostat arrangement. This heater will maintain the interior of the
housing within the specified operating range of the instrument. The use of electrical wraparound heater tape for the pressure line will also be required to keep the line from freezing.
The heater tape should also be equipped with a thermostatic control to regulate the temperature.
K. OVERRANGE & UNDERRANGE PROTECTION
The pressure measuring systems used in our instruments are designed to handle a certain
amount of pressure overload without damage. However, extreme overpressure or underpressure can permanently warp or damage this system. If you anticipate that over or
under-ranging will occur, the use of relief valves are recommended to limit pressure excursions in one or both directions. These valves, which are adjustable, are installed in the
pressure line at the input of the instrument.

L. ELEMENT CONSTRUCTION & ACCURACY
The accuracy of our pressure instruments is related to the construction material of the
pressure element. Instruments with pressure elements made of Ni-Span C and 316 Stainless Steel are factory-calibrated to an accuracy of ±0.5% of span. Those instruments with
pressure elements made of Monel-C tube (per NACE specification MR-01-75) are factorycalibrated to an accuracy of ±1.0% of span. The range and material of the element furnished
for your application will be as specified in the sales order.
WARNING
The user should be certain that the pressure
element range and material are suitable for the
intended measurement application before placing
the instrument in operation. A failure to check the
element application could result in damage to
equipment and property, and possible injury to
persons. If the application is in question, the user
is urged to contact Bristol Babcock for additional
information.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Electric Alarm Units will actuate an external alarm circuit when the measured variable
crosses an alarm setpoint. Units may be specified with high, low or high-low alarm circuits.
Figure YB1- Hi-Lo Alarm Unit
Types of Scales
Two types of scales are used with alarm units: auxiliary-set and direct-set. The auxiliaryset type shown in Figure YB1 contains its own scale and adjustment knob/s for setting
alarms. The direct-set type (no longer available as of 2/21/05) doesn’t have a scale or
CI-53011/53012

adjustment knobs; it uses the setpoint knob associated with the pen mounting mechanism
of the recorder. Note: The terms auxiliary-set and direct-set are defined from the
standpoint of the recorder. Except for the method of reading and setting the
alarms, both types operate identically.
Theory of Operation
Alarm activation is achieved through a SPST magnetic reed switch contained inside the
alarm unit. When the setpoint knob is adjusted to a desired trip point, the position of the
switch is also changed relative to a magnetic assembly that is coupled to the pen arm.
When the recorder is in a non-alarm state, the magnet is positioned away from the switch.
During an alarm condition, the switch moves sufficiently close enough to the reed switch to
pull in the contact. This causes the relay to energize and operate the external alarm circuit.
The reed switch remains closed until the pen arm returns to the non-alarm zone.
ALARM WIRING CONNECTIONS
It is essential to perform all electrical wiring associated with alarm units in accordance
with the National Electrical Code (ANSI/ISA standard S82.01, S82.02 and S82.03) and local
authority.

High or Low Alarm Units (No Longer Available)
The high or low alarm units use similar hardware and differ only in the positioning of the
setpoint adjustment knob and the manner in which the relay operates. Figure YB2 shows
the internal and external wiring circuits. The SPDT relay contacts are brought out to the
field wiring terminals which allows the user to select a normally-open (NO) or normallyclosed (NC) configuration depending on the action of the external alarm device. The NC
contact is closed as shown when the relay is energized.
High and Low Alarm Units
These units, shown in Figure YB3, contain two reed switches and two relays to establish an
alarm operating zone. When the pen (measured variable) is inside this zone, the high and
low relay contacts will be open as shown. Should the pen go below the low setpoint, the low
relay contact will close. Should the pen go above the high setpoint, the high relay contact
will close.

AC Power Terminals
In Figures 2 and 3, terminals L1 and L2 are wired to a 120 Vac source to provide power for
the relay coil/s. Note that these terminals also provide power for electric chart drives and
other electrical options. Before making any connections, refer to the installation/wiring
section of this manual for safety information on AC power circuits.
SETTING ALARMS
The location and use of the operating adjustments depend on whether the instrument
employs auxiliary-set or direct-set units. Select the appropriate procedure below.
Auxiliary-set Units
The Hi and Lo setpoint adjustment knobs and the scale for these units are built into the
assembly. The scale is graduated from 0% to 100% to correspond with a percentage of the
instrument range. Turn the setpoint knob until the pointer indicates the desired alarm trip
point.
Direct-set Units
(Note: As of 2/21/05 Direct-set Alarm Units are No Longer Available)
The setpoint knob for these units is located on the pen mounting assembly. Turning this
knob sets the alarm unit and also positions a setpointer arm on the chart scale. On
recorders with high-low alarms, the green-coded knob and setpointer corresponds to the low
alarm, while the red-coded knob and setpointer corresponds to the high alarm. Turn each
setpoint knob until the pointer indicates the desired high and low setpoint values on the
chart. The mechanical arrangement contained in the setpoint mechanism prevents the
setpointers from crossing over onto each other’s domain.

DESCRIPTION
Pump Control Units, Figure YC1, are used in single or multiple pumping systems to
maintain the level of a liquid in a tank. Each unit contains two independent setpoint
adjustments for setting the desired pump operating range (turn on and turn off points).
These units are factory-installed in recording and indicating instruments and receive input
drive through the instrument linkage. They provide a SPDT relay contact output rated at 5
amperes, 115Vac for a pure resistive load.
Figure YC1- Hi-Lo Alarm Unit
Essentially, Pump Control Units employ two magnetic reed switches for the low and high
pump contacts shown in Figure YC2. The pivot magnet, which is coupled to the pen or
CI-53011/53012
YC-1
Pump Control Units
Y19249
Issue: 03/07
indicating linkage, tracks the motion of the measured variable. When the low setpoint is
crossed, the pivot magnet pole will rotate toward the left to close the low-end reed switch.
This closed contact completes the instrument relay circuit, thereby causing it to energize
and latch on. The relay’s contacts, in turn, actuate the external pump to begin the pumping
cycle.
Figure YC-2 - Switch and Magnet Assembly
Once the proper pumping level is established, the magnet pole rotates toward the right to
close the high reed switch contact. Once closed, this contact unlatches the relay. This
condition prevails until the tank level drops below the low setpoint. At that moment, the
relay will be latched on again and the pump will be turned on to repeat the pumping cycle.
INTERNAL CIRCUITRY
The internal circuitry of the pump control unit is shown in Figure YC3. The circuit is shown
with the magnet closing the low reed switch circuit (measured variable below low setpoint).
With this switch closed, the relay coil is energized. In this state, the pump N.C. contact is
closed and the pump is operating. Also the latch N.C. contact is closed to keep the relay
latched on.
As the liquid level builds up in the tank, the magnet moves away from the “low” reed switch
and the switches’ contact opens. The relay does not de-energize because the latch N.C.
contact keeps its energizing circuit closed.
Pump Control Units
YC-2
CI-53011/53012
Issue: 03/07
Y19249
Once the tank reaches the proper level (measured variable crossing high setpoint), the high
switch is closed to short out the relay coil. The relay then de-energizes and both the “latch”
and “pump” contacts drop to their N/O/ positions. The external pump circuit is opened and
the pumping stops. The “latch” contacts are also opened and they remain open until the
measured variable again falls below the low setpoint.
OPERATION
Units with Internal Setpoint Adjustments
The high and low setpoint adjustments and the setpoint scale on these types are all a
complete assembly. The scale is graduated in increments from 0-100% which corresponds to
the instrument range. To set it, turn the low (green) and high (red) setpoint knobs until
they are at the desired values. Note that the pointers cannot be crossed over behind each
other due to mechanical detents.

Y19249
Issue: 03/07
Units with External Setpoint Adjustments
The setpoint knobs and setpoint pointer on these types are located on the instrument face
rather than the Pump Control Unit, itself. They attach to the control unit through an added
mechanical coupling arrangement. To set it, turn the low (green) and high (red) setpoint
knobs until the setpointers are at the desired values. Note that the pointers cannot be
crossed over behind each other due to mechanical detents.
TROUBLESHOOTING
If the unit fails to operate properly, proceed with the following checks:
1. Using an ac voltmeter, measure potential across instrument wiring terminals
L1 and L2. If 120 Vac is not present, check supply source for blown fuses or
opens.
2. Disconnect external pump circuitry from terminals N.O., C and N.C. Connect
ohmmeter across terminals C and either N.O. or N.C. Move appropriate setpoint
adjustments so that setpointer crosses pen arm and activates alarm. Repeat test
with opposite contact and note if contact closures occur in both instances. If switch
action is normal, problem may be in external pump circuitry. If not, proceed with the
next step.
3. Pull out colored leads (pin connections) from Pump Control Unit to isolate it from
the relay. Touch ohmmeter leads lightly to socket pins (rear of socket) to make
continuity checks.
CAUTION
Do not push ohmmeter test probes into
relay socket openings. The relay socket
can be permanently damaged by forcing
test probes through the opening.
4.
Check switch continuity by turning setpoint adjustments as described in step 2.
Continuity should be measured between gray & red and also gray & blue lead pairs
(gray is common, red is high and blue is low). Use schematic of Figure YC3 as guide.
5. If no switch action was observed in step 4, problem may be in the Control Unit.
Check for defective reed switch or magnet that may have shifted positions. If
switching action of step 4 was normal, proceed with next step.
6. Plug colored leads back into sockets of Control Unit. Make sure relay is plugged
securely in its socket. If relay is defective, test operation of pump circuitry with a
replacement relay.
7. If new relay does not correct problem, check for broken or shorted connections at
socket assembly. Replace socket if defective.
