Ammonia separator

Level measurement and point level detection in the ammonia separator

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement and point level detection
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
3 m
Process temperature:
-40 ... 0 °C
Process pressure:
+1 … +6 bar
Special challenges:
Extreme diffusibility of the ammonia gas


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.
