How do you determine the best level measurement options to optimize your process output without risking efficiency?
The chemical sector differentiates from other industries for its wide range of production scales and diverse processes from batch to continuous.
Being able to quickly adapt to process changes, production demands and customized customer requirements will dictate the level of investment and instrumentation you will need.
Level Measurement Technologies
This article reviews the most popular level technologies used to control and/or manage the correct level of your liquid or solid ingredients used in process vessels or silos containing bulk solids materials. The measurement approach will be discussed in terms of the general characteristics of the process such as temperature, pressure, steam, dust, vessel type etc.
Both continuous technologies such as ultrasonic and radar will be covered as well as pressure transmitters and point level switches.
