More Level Measurement Technologies and Applications in Action

Yesterday we highlighted demonstrations of vibrating fork, ultrasonic, and guided wave radar level measurement technologies. Today we’ll highlight the rest of the new videos from Emerson’s Rosemount Level team.

In this 3:53 YouTube video, Rosemount 5300 Guided Wave Radar with Rosemount 9901 Chamber–No Surprises in the Field!, Emerson’s Tom Wienke shows how project risk is reduced by combining the guided wave radar to also supply the chamber or bridle assembly. He discusses the elements of design, fit, and quality compliance to ASME B31.1 or B31.3 standards depending on the type of chamber.

In this 3:43 video, Fermenter Foam Level Monitoring in Ethanol Plant, Emerson’s Dave Schneider shows how the Rosemount 5300 can help you detect the level of foam to help reduce the need and cost of antifoaming agents. Reducing this level of foam helps to maximize capacity of the fermentation vessel. Level measurement is a challenge due to the variable density of the fluid and the carbon dioxide gas produced by the fermentation process. One energy company using this technology was able to increase the level in their fermentors 5%, which translated into an estimated $20,000,000 USD annually in increased ethanol production.

In the final video in our recap of new videos, Level Challenges in Boiling Hydrocarbon Overcome by High-Sensitivity GWR (3:14), Emerson’s Andreas Hessel explains how the Rosemount 5300 Series Guided Wave Radar provides reliable level measurements despite the severe challenges with boiling hydrocarbon. At these conditions, heavy turbulence, low dielectric constants, and supercritical states can be present. Andreas highlights how direct switch technology and probe end projections address these conditions.
