Level Measurement Solutions for Chemical Condensers

Condensation is the heat transfer process that changes a gas or vapor to a liquid. It is employed in the reflux process to improve the efficiency of distillation. Condensation can also be employed for producing saturated liquid products, for sub-cooling, or to serve an environmental or vapor recovery function. Condensation is carried out in a variety of configurations. By properly monitoring chemical condensers, plants can ensure that distillation and other processes run as efficiently as possible.

Redundant Level Measurement for Chemical Overfill Prevention

In the chemical industry, level instrumentation is required to measure continuous liquid levels in flammable tanks and to prevent potential overfill. Chemical plants stringently enforce environment, health, and safety (EH&S or HS&E) management practices with the expectation that their suppliers have a similar culture.
