Distillation column

Level and pressure measurement in the distillation of primary products

Process data

Measuring task:
Level and pressure measurement
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
0.4 m
Process temperature:
-50 … +400 °C
Process pressure:
-0.5 … +2 bar
Special challenges:
Buildup, contamination and high temperatures


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.

Your benefit

Reliable level measurement across all pressure and temperature ranges
Cost effective
Standardized operation in all the measuring principles
User friendly
Robust and maintenance-free sensors reduce maintenance overhead
