Major chemical manufacturer utilises Magnetrol technology for total level and interface applications

One of the world’s largest producers of caprolactam, an organic chemical used as a precursor to the manufacture of synthetic fibers, recently required continuous monitoring of liquid levels in tanks. The temperature range of the medium could reach 170°C (338°F) with an operating pressure of 3.5 bar(g) (50 psig).  Level …

Level measurement solutions for ammonia vaporisation skids

Ammonia vaporisation changes the state of ammonia from a liquid to a gas. Vaporised ammonia is important for use in industrial refrigeration and in pollution abatement technology, such as selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems used to neutralise nitrogen oxides from large electric utility and industrial boilers. Although ammonia is generally …

Magnetostrictive technology helps refinery measure liquid-liquid interface

Interface applications are among the toughest challenges in the process industries. In the oil & gas and petrochemical industries specifically, the need for interface measurement arises whenever immiscible liquids, those incapable of mixing, reside within the same vessel. The lighter medium rises to the top and the heavier settles at …

Level measurement solutions for waste compressor liquid

When natural gas enters a compressor station, it first passes through scrubbers and filters. These processes are intended to remove waste byproducts from the gas before it is compressed and continues to flow through the pipeline. Wastes can be water condensates or heavier hydrocarbons from the natural gas. Extracting and …

Level measurement solutions for water processing

Throughout the various processes involved in natural gas refining, the end result frequently involves excess water being captured and removed. Water removal is an important part of ensuring the purest natural gas product possible, but the water cannot be simply drained away. Produced water, wash-down water or collected rainwater requires …
