Measurements in crude distillation columns

Control the core process and meet your production targets

The distillation column separates crude oil into its natural components that are then further refined in downstream process units. Getting an accurate and reliable measurement at this stage is critical for yield accounting, meeting production targets, planning and scheduling. You need to maximize the feed rate while ensuring the mixture of crude types meets environmental specifications. Trouble in the crude distillation could lead to costly shutdowns.

Thinking about modernizing level measurement technologies

If so, you should know that compared to conventional level measurement methods, such as displacement measurement or differential-pressure measurement with impulse lines, the guided radar system not only provides technological superiority, but also offers clear cost advantages throughout its service life time, starting from project planning to acquisition and commissioning all the way though servicing and maintenance.

Effective control requires accurate and reliable measurement

Our newly developed electronic dP measurement system removes the hassle of faulty measurement due to clogged impulse lines or temperature effects. And at the same time, it reduces installation and maintenance cost significantly.

Get advise for your critical measuring points

To guarantee efficiency in your distillation process, the temperature readings of your furnace must be reliable. This is a challenging application with aggressive gases, high temperatures and expansion in the pipes. Our experienced team of engineers can help design and select the right devices for your critical measuring points.
