Multiphase level measurements are required throughout process industries and are especially significant in the oil and gas and petrochemical sectors due to the value derived from effectively separating water and hydrocarbon. While level instrumentation has come a long way in measuring liquids of all varieties, multiphase level measurement remains a challenge and an opportunity to improve process efficiency.
The Genesis Multiphase Detector from Magnetrol is designed to measure multiple phases in applications with thick and dynamic emulsion layers. Features include 24 V DC input with four 4 mA to 20 mA outputs (including HART) for control of total level, top of emulsion, water level and sediment. Changing media characteristics have no effect on level measurement and calibration or moving of levels in the vessel is not required.
