Cost Effective Alternative to Displacer Level Measurement

Cost Effective Alternative to Displacer Level Measurement
The Problem
Displacer’s often provide inaccurate results combined with high maintenance.
 
• Displacer accuracy is dependant on the specific gravity of a fluid. Varying specific gravities and “off spec” product result in significant measurement errors.
• Coating build-up on the displacer body produces errors.
• “Blowdowns” to clean displacer internals and cages is time consuming and expensive.
• Rebuilds due to component wear add significantly to the total cost of ownership.
• Interface measurements are more sensitive to slight specific gravity variances and result in separator throughput lower than the design specification.

The Solution
• Drexelbrook Radio Frequency (RF) Admittance technology eliminates all of the inherent problems with Displacer technology level measurement.
• RF is immune to changes in specific gravity, density, temperature, and pressure.
• Accuracies to 1⁄4 inch of level in short span installations.
• No moving parts to wear, No periodic maintenance.
• Replacement cost differentials covered by eliminating one rebuild.
