Multiphase Level Measurement

Improving level control in desalters to aid in use of opportunity crudes

Multiphase Level Measurement
(PresseBox) ( Bad Wildbad, )
One of the processes that can greatly influence the refineries’ profit margin is the desalter. When operating a desalter, one must constantly evaluate different parameters, each with a specific effect on the performance of the desalter. In the meantime, countries and local regulatory bodies are also applying strict quality demands on the brine/water leaving the desalters, presenting operators with more challenges. But how can we get the most out of our existing desalter? In order to optimize desalters and achieve the best efficiency, level control must be improved. Due to extreme process conditions, the monitoring of interfaces in process vessels can be very difficult and poses some challenges for the measurement technology.

Berthold Technologies has published the whitepaper “Multiphase Level Measurement - Improving level control in desalters to aid in use of opportunity crudes”, wherein the different technologies of level measurement and some of their possible issues are explained. Principally, the different nuclear density profile systems are discussed.

This paper shows how Berthold with its highly sophisticated radiometric Multiphase Level Measurement system EmulsionSENS helps refiners to optimize the separation process, minimize the probability of failure, increase efficiency, save chemicals and thus permanently reduce their operating costs.

Further information and the download of the whitepaper are available on our homepage:

We have been safely using radiometric measurement principles for 70 years. With our proven technology and years of experience working in the refinery industry, we can develop a solution that is right for you and your process. Berthold Technologies is here to help assist refiners to safely and reliably control the most difficult measurement applications so they can maximize their margins by increased rates through the units, increased the unit operational reliability by reducing unplanned shutdowns and reduced maintenance cost. Berthold Technologies is an international leader in industrial process instrumentation. By focussing on technology, powerful and customer-oriented measuring systems and devices are developed and produced. The production of high-quality measuring systems for industry and research began more than 70 years ago in Bad Wildbad in the Black Forest.
