Results

  • Measured the condensation (Top Level) at normal flooded condition which in the bypass chamber. The measurement works well and shows the expected values.

Challenge

• Interface measurement with emulsion layer.
• Sludge exist from time to time during process.
• Existing FMP41C failed due to suspect medium seeped in and cause false echo which trigger the alarm.

Benefits

  • The customer satisfy with a stabile and accurate measurement even with emulsion layer.

  • High reliability of measurement and better process control.

  • Easy commissioning and operation.

Instrument Used

Hybrid probe Levelflex FMP55 Sensor Fusion with capacitance and guided radar measuring principle in one device.
