The experts for measurement solutions

Our products reliably provide key process information in the production of polyethylene and polypropylene, in urea and PTA plants as well as in cellulose or rubber production. Furthermore Berthold measuring products are used in the highly critical process of coal gasification.  Our customers are some of the world’s biggest and best in their fields – BASF, Bayer, Dow, DuPont, Eastman, Exxon Mobil, INEOS, SABIC and Shell just to name just a few.
As a technology partner, Berthold readily supports their customers with expertise and know-how in the development of new innovative processes, even if custom-made solutions are required. As a matter of fact, our aim is to get the best out of your process.

X-ray Interference Protection (XIP)

With this function, weld tests can no longer distort the measured value. The measured value is frozen until the external radiation influence is over. A digital output signals the detection of interfering radiation. All our level measurements are equipped with XIP.

Product Radiation Compensation (PRC)

Does your product contain natural radioactive radiation? No problem!
The Product Radiation Compensation (PRC) feature provides reliable, accurate level measurement through independent activity measurement and integral compensation for a reliable and precise level measurement.

Gas Property Compensation (GPC)

In the case of radiometric measurement, gas density variations can falsify the measured value, unless you have gas density compensation from Berthold. With the feature GPC, a second measurement determines the current gas density in the tank and has a compensating effect on the connected level measurement.

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.

Long-term stability

A reliable measurement is vital for the operation of a process and is therefore, our highest priority. Berthold’s detectors operate absolutely stable irrespective of changes in ambient temperature. Even drastic temperature shifts, e.g. from winter to summer don’t irritate the measurement drift. Our patented method for detector stabilization compensates for temperature influences and aging.

Detector Stability

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

Whitepaper “Rod source / point detector"

Berthold has published the whitepaper “Rod source / point detector arrangement”, wherein the advantages and benefits of a rod source/point detector arrangement are explained. Due to less frequent production downtimes, simpler and thus more economical spare parts inventory, increased long-term and temperature stability and consistent process quality, the higher acquisition costs are mitigated within a short period of time.
