Level measurement in an aluminium powder suspension reactor

Level measurement in an aluminium powder suspension reactor

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
1.2 m
Aluminium powder suspension
Process temperature:
0 … +130 °C
Process pressure:
0 … +0.3 bar
Special challenges:
Low dielectric constant, confined spaces, strong turbulence on the product surface, condensation


Aluminium powder suspension is an intermediate for titanium sponge production. In the reactor, vanadium oxide trichloride is removed from the aluminium powder suspension. When the aluminium powder suspension is fed into the reactor, strong turbulence arises on the product surface. To optimize the process, the level in the reactor must be accurately measured and monitored.
