Chemical Processing’s Level eHandbook: Best Practices for Level Management

Level measurement, which is the detection of the phase split between vapor/liquid, liquid/liquid, vapor/solid and even liquid/solid, is a key parameter in the operation and control of modern industrial processes. A reliable outcome depends on the phase conditions being relatively consistent under all process conditions. Unfortunately, the importance of level control isn’t always understood. Failure to measure level reliably has resulted in some of the most serious industrial accidents, including those at the Buncefield, U.K., fuel storage depot and BP’s Texas City refinery. In this Chemical Processing Level Management eHandbook, we discuss best practices for level management including:

How to Select the Right Liquid Level Sensor - It’s important to consider a variety of factors when choosing the type of technology

Properly Measure Liquid/Liquid Interfaces - Follow a simple rule for location of level gauge nozzles

Improve Reactor Vessel Measurement - Non-contact radar level meter speeds production and boosts worker safety
