LEARN FROM OUR EXPERTS how the performance of separators and electrostatic coalescers (desalters/dehydrators) can be improved by design and control instrumentation.
Our approach is different than most other instrumentation providers. Berthold Technologies sells measurement solutions, not just measurement devices. We work with you to provide the measurement you need to control and optimize your process.
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.
DuoSeries LB 470 is now also available with radiation interference discrimination (RID). The level measurement system with RID consists of a Co-60 source, an LB4700 detector with PVT scintillator, and a separate LB470 RID transmitter for display, calculation, and operation. The detector mounted at the measuring point is connected to the LB 470 RID transmitter via a two-wire cable. If Cs-137 or St-90 sources are being used for NDT at or near your plant, and you have a critical measurement that requires continual monitoring, the LB 470 RID is the right choice for you. This RID systsem discriminates between NDT gamma and that of its Co-60 source, and continues to provide a live and accurate measurement during NDT events.
The SENSseries LB 480 detectors are certified for use in SIL2 applications. SIL3 is achieved by adding an identical redundant SIL2 detector for homogenous redundancy. The certificate covers all measurement applications, from high level or low level alarms to continuous level and density measurements. Thus the safe measurement of critical processes is guaranteed.
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.
Multiphase level measurements are used wherever several phases are formed, and a density profile is required to monitor a separation process. Due to a lack of clear separation between phases and extreme process conditions, radiometric measuring systems are particularly well suited for this application. Changes in emulsion height, slight differences in phase densities, buildup on the vessel walls, very large vessels, or large measuring ranges often cause problems for other technologies, but can be reliably measured with the EmulsionSENS measuring system. Many processes can be better monitored and thus optimized with the multiphase level measuring system, including, and other separators or storage tanks.
Catalytic cracking, especially fluid catalytic cracking (FCC), is one of the most important conversion processes used in the refineries. To ensure a control of the entire cracking process, level measurements are essential. But the extreme process conditions of a fluid catalytic cracking unit pose some challenges for the measurement technology. The article “Made to measure” (published in the journal
