High pressure steam is critical for the operation of the refinery. For the production and reliable supply of steam, accurate level measurement is required that allows efficient operation of the steam boiler. In addition to level measurement, high and low water limit detectors are also extremely important. As safety devices, they ensure that the water level neither exceeds the upper limit nor falls below the lower limit.
