The experts for petrochemical measurement solutions

Berthold‘s radiometric measuring systems are used where conventional measurement techniques fail. Berthold is the worldwide leading supplier of radiometric measurement systems for the petrochemical industry. Corrosive, abrasive, high-pressure, and high-temperature environments require a non-contacting technology that can withstand these conditions. Due to the non-intrusive nature of the radiometric measurement and the use of rugged material, the system is normally wear and tear free and, thus, perfectly suited for the variety of applications in petrochemical plants.


Advantages of radiometric technology

  • Suitable for all extreme operating conditions
  • High reliability and reproducibility due to patented aging and temperature compensation
  • Non-intrusive, with the product to be measured and thus not exposed to the harsh process conditions
  • Free of wear and tear
  • Easy to install on existing pipes and vessels
  • Lowest cost of ownership
  • No need for frequent recalibration

Radiometric measurement for extreme process conditions

Berthold measurement systems are suitable for highly critical processes and harsh process conditions. They provide reliable and highly reproducible key process information in the production of e. g. polyolefins (polyethylene (LDPE, LLDPE and HDPE) and polypropylene (PP)), PVC, PS, PET, other polymers and intermediates. As a technology partner, Berthold readily supports their customers with expertise and know-how in the development of new innovative processes, especially when custom-made solutions are required.

SIL certified option

The SENSseries LB 480 detectors are certified for use in SIL2 applications. Even SIL3 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 processes is guaranteed.
