Safe and reliable measurement of the separation layers in the sour water stripper is extremely important in preventing sour water from accidentally getting into other parts of the plant. Sour water is highly corrosive and can cause serious damage over time, leading to safety problems in other process vessels and pipes. The sour water discharged from the stripper is delivered to the desulphurisation plant for further processing.
