Flare knockout drum

Level measurement in the flare knockout drum

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
4 m
Process temperature:
-50 … +30 °C
Process pressure:
0 … +100 bar
Special challenges:
High pressure, condensation


The unrecoverable residues of oil and gas production are collected in the flare knockout drum and liquefied at high pressure. The recovered liquid, the condensate, collects at the bottom of the vessel and is disposed of. The non-liquefied gases are decompressed and burned in the flare system. To ensure efficient and safe operation of the vessel, the level inside must be very reliably measured.

Your benefit

Reliable measurement, independent of process conditions
Cost effective
Ensures effective operation of the equipment
