Optimize heavy/ medium crude separation
Get higher quality crude and less maintenance
A higher quality crude and less maintenance in your process is now possible with our multiparameter guided wave radar technology. Often in separator applications, there is a rag layer (emulsion) which can cause challenges in accurate interface and overall level measurement. This technology is specifically designed to overcome these challenges.

Higher quality crude oil
Multiparameter probe for interface measurement. Two current outputs for interface layer and overall level.
In medium and heavy crude separation (API 15° to 31° 870 to 960 kg/m3 (7.3 to 8 lb/gal)), it can be challenging to measure the overall level as well as the interface accurately with a single device. In these applications a rag layer (emulsion) often exists. If this rag layer exceeds 5 cm (2 inches), a standard guided wave radar device will not be able to measure the interface. And, a capacitance level device would only be able to show the level of the water - not the overall level.
Our patented multiparameter guided wave radar device combines traditional guided wave radar technology with capacitance level technology - taking the advantages of each into one device. Once the rag layer (emulsion) has reached a thickness greater than about 5 cm (2 inches) - the sensor automatically switches into capacitance mode - so the interface is detected continuously.
