Special challenges


Solvents are used in the pharmaceutical industry for extracting active ingredients. They are then recovered via evaporation in a high-vacuum distillation vessel. After the solvent has been removed from the pharmaceutical product by evaporation, it is further processed. Reliable level measurement is required in the distillation vessel for process control.
