The process water, which is usually extracted from a river, cannot be fed directly into the turbine loop until it has been treated. It has to undergo cleansing through filtering systems and ionizers. The raw water has contaminants that can cause long-term buildup. Level detectors need to work reliably to protect against overfilling the tank or dry running of the pump.
