Oil Separators

Point level detection and continuous level measurement in separators.


Real World Example

One of the key operations in oil production is the separation of oil from water. Interface levels inside of separators must be continually monitored to protect against the inadvertent loss of oil during the separation process.

Point level switches can be utilized as high level alarms to prevent overfills as well as low level alarm detection to prevent oil from escaping through the drain pipe. These units can also be side mounted into a vessel or tank and used as interface level detection.

Magnetic Level Indicators provide visual level indication and can be coupled with side mounted transmitters for continuous level measurement. Adjustable MLS switches can be added for alarm set points – providing an all in one solution.

Industries: Oil & Gas, Food/Beverage, Petrochemical, Chemical and Refining.
