For this pre-treatment method, the level of ore slurry needs to be monitored continuously to guarantee a safe and optimized procedure and utilization of the autoclave. Due to the temperature (200–250 °C) and pressure (approx. 35 bar) conditions the walls of those autoclaves are too thick (around 300 mm) to apply conventional measurement solutions. Radiometric level measurement is the only technology to provide long-term, reliable results under those extreme conditions and measures continuously the level.
Wear-resistant and maintenance-free as measurement is contactless
The SENSseries LB 480 detectors are certified for use in SIL 2 applications. Even SIL 3 is achieved with homogenous redundancy. The certificate covers all measurement applications, from high level or low level alarms to continuous level measurement and density measurement. Thus safe operation of critical oil and gas processes is guaranteed.
