Oil & Gas Upstream Applications with SENSseries LB 480

The demanding processes in the oil & gas industry require measurement devices with top level performance and operational safety. The Berthold SENSseries detectors for the oil & gas industry are specifically designed to be used for such applications. These first-class radiometric detectors offer excellent long-term stability and repeatability for each application. Moreover, the SENSseries LB 480 offers detectors certified for SIL2 / SIL3 for use in safety critical applications. In short: SENSseries LB 480 is the product our oil & gas customers can rely on.

X-ray Interference Protection (XIP)

With this function, weld tests no longer cause sudden fluctuations in the measured value. When weld tests are detected, the measured value is frozen until the external radiation event ends. A digital output can be set to signal the detection of interfering radiation.
All of our level measurement detectors are equipped with XIP.

Product Radiation Compensation (PRC)

Does your product naturally emit radiation? No problem!
The Product Radiation Compensation (PRC) independently measures gamma from the product and removes its effect upon the measurement, for a reliable accurate level measurement.

Gas Property Compensation (GPC)

Gas property fluctuations in large vessels can greatly impact the amount of gamma at the detector, and therefore impact the measured value, if Berthold's gas property compensation is not added. With GPC, a second detector monitors how much the gas properties are effecting gamma transmission. Based on this, the level detector compensates for changes in gas properties, providing a reliable level measurement.

Detector retrofit program to improve your production

Especially in low radiation conditions, our highly sensitive detectors improve the signal to noise ratio, what is resulting in superior measurement performance compared to competing systems. Source replacement is costly, time consuming, and does not work towards a reduction in overall site source activity.

Berthold's retrofit solution

Do you need a measurement with an extremely short reaction time?

The LB 480 SpeedStar is used when the speed of the measurement is crucial. Due to the extremely short response time of 50ms, rapid changes such as slugs are detected early, allowing operators or the control system to compensate before they reach the production processes downstream.
