+25 … +75 bar
Special challenges:
Very thick-walled reactor, high pressure, high temperature


Heavy oil residues are processed in the hydrocracker, such as atmospheric and vacuum residue. Fresh catalyst is continuously added and used catalyst is withdrawn, enabling product quality over time. To promote safe and efficient heavy oil processing, a reliable measurement and density profiling is needed for control of critical process stages.
