Level measurement in a stirring reactor

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
6 m
Oil/water mixture
Process temperature:
0 ... +50 °C
Process pressure:
0 … 0 bar
Special challenges:
Differently reflecting media, tank internals, agitators


In a recycling company, oil sludge, oil/water mixtures and emulsions from many industrial processes are collected and treated. The objective is to separate the oil and water for recovery, purification and reuse. This process takes place in several steps. Firstly the oil/water mixture is centrifuged, hydrogen peroxide is added and mixed in a stirring reactor, then finally it is centrifuged again. Continuous level measurement is required in the reactor stage to enable automated operation. It’s very important for there to be an absolutely reliable and accurate measurement even at low liquid levels, right down to the vessel bottom.

Your benefit

Reliable function, even with differently reflecting media, tank internals and agitators
Cost effective
Inexpensive integration into the reactor vessel, no modifications required
User friendly
Measuring point easily accessible
