Sulphur decanter

Density and interface measurement in the sulphur decanter

Density and interface measurement in the sulphur decanter

Process data

Measuring task:
Density and interface measurement
Measuring point:
Horizontal bullet
Measuring range up to:
15 m
Elemental sulphur and water
Process temperature:
+90 … +120 °C
Process pressure:
+1 … +3 bar
Special challenges:
Double wall tank, very aggressive medium


In a sulphur decanter, the operator must manually verify the interface level of the sulphur deposits as they slowly build up under the water. An instrument that can automate the measurement and enable continuous operation of the process ensures availability of the vessel and minimal impact on the downstream process.
