Installation shall be done by trained installers, in compliance with the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Page 29: Installation Considerations

    3.2.1 Horn antenna requirements The Rosemount 5900S with Horn Antenna must be installed so that there are no pipes or other obstacles that could prevent the radar beam from reaching the tank bottom unobstructed. There are two flanges available; a horizontal flange for vertical installation, and an inclined flange for installation close to the tank wall.
  • Page 30 In case a vertical antenna axis installation is not possible without the tank wall penetrating the radar beam, the Rosemount 5900S has to be directed away from the wall by using the 4° flange. The inclination is necessary to ensure maximum accuracy.
  • Page 31 Horizontal flange Rx0.2 (R=tank reference height) 4° flange In exceptional cases the Rosemount 5900S with Horn Antenna can be installed closer to the tank wall if required. Please contact Emerson Automation Solutions/Rosemount Tank Gauging for advice. In certain cases, when maximum accuracy is not required, the horizontal flange can be used even if the wall intrudes into the radar beam.
  • Page 32 Parabolic antenna requirements Inclination The inclination of the Rosemount 5900S with Parabolic Antenna should not exceed 1.5 ° towards the center of the tank. For products with high condensation such as bitumen/ asphalt applications, the radar beam should be directed vertically without any inclination.
  • Page 33 Figure 3-3: Maximum Inclination with Parabolic Antenna A. Maximum inclination 1.5° Flange requirements The Rosemount 5900S with Parabolic Antenna is mounted on the tank nozzle by using the Flange Ball. It is designed for easy adjustment of gauge inclination within the specified limits.
  • Page 34 < 17° Nozzle requirements When installing the Rosemount 5900S with Parabolic Antenna on a 20 inch nozzle, the nozzle height must not exceed 600 mm (24 in.). There has to be a free passage for the radar beam within a 5° angle from the edge of the parabolic reflector to the lower end of the nozzle.
  • Page 35 F. 5° minimum Free space requirements The radar beam of the Rosemount 5900S with Parabolic Antenna is 10° wide. Obstacles (construction bars, pipes larger than Ø 2", etc.) within the radar beam are generally not accepted, as these may result in disturbing echoes. However, in most cases, a smooth tank wall or small objects will not have any significant influence on the radar beam.
  • Page 36 The antenna axis should be located at least 800 mm (31 in.) from the tank wall for best performance. For evaluation contact Emerson Automation Solutions/ Rosemount Tank Gauging. Figure 3-7: Free Space Requirements for the Rosemount 5900S with Parabolic Antenna 5°...
