Density measurement in the hydrocracker

Process data

Measuring task:
Density measurement
Measuring point:
Vertical cylinder
Measuring range up to:
25 m
Heavy crude and residues
Process temperature:
+230 … +480 °C
Process pressure:
+25 … +75 bar
Special challenges:
Very thick-walled reactor, high pressure, high temperature


Heavy oil residues are processed in the hydrocracker, such as atmospheric and vacuum residue. Fresh catalyst is continuously added and used catalyst is withdrawn, enabling product quality over time. To promote safe and efficient heavy oil processing, a reliable measurement and density profiling is needed for control of critical process stages.

Your benefit

Safe measurement unaffected by process conditions
Cost effective
Continuous measurement allows effective process control
User friendly
Compact design
