Separation vessel

Level measurement and point level detection in a separator vessel tank for recovery of raw materials

Process data

Measuring task:
Level and interface measurement, point level detection
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
15 m
Water-based media and hydrocarbons
Process temperature:
+20 … +80 °C
Process pressure:
0 … +16 bar
Special challenges:
Alternating media properties, emulsions


These processes often involve the separation of water-based media from hydrocarbons. In most applications, the upper, lighter medium is electrically non-conductive. Guided radar level measurement makes use of the effect that non-conductive media allow some of the radar energy to pass through, thus enabling a measurement of the interface between the water-based lower medium and the hydrocarbons.

Your benefit

Reliable measurement of the interface (separation layer)
Cost effective
Maintenance-free operation
User friendly
Easy setup and commissioning
