Application

In the ammonia separator, the reaction gas mixture (ammonia, hydrogen, nitrogen, traces of methane) is cooled to the boiling point of ammonia (-33 °C). This condenses the ammonia gas. A bypass tube is typically used for measuring the level of the condensed ammonia. In addition, a limit switch is also installed directly in the vessel as a redundant measurement.
