Mold level measurement during continuous casting applications

In the extractor, there is an interface between the solvent and the extracted asphaltenes. This interface is typically not a clean interface, with a gradient change in density where the two products of different densities separate.The level is typically measured by means of a float or differential pressure. Other technologies measure the physical characteristics of the fluids. If the physical characteristics change slightly, this leads to errors in the level measurement.
