Application

The process temperatures in a distillation column place high demands on the measurement technologies deployed. The boiling point of the distillate frequently exceeds 400 °C. The aim is to achieve the highest possible product throughput for cost-effective operation of the plant. This means the raw material replenishments need to be optimally controlled by level and process pressure measurement in the column.
