Application

Extracted natural gas and gas residues from oil production are contaminated with water and are therefore collected in gas separators (scrubbers) for separation. Pressures of up to +150 bar keep the gas in the liquid state. Exact pressure and level measurement enable optimal utilization of the gas separator and effective control of the gas drying process. The separation of gas from water is carried out by chemically binding the water to glycol and separating it mechanically. Accurate measurement of the gas/water interface determines the quality of the gas.
