The Petrochemical sector

The Challenge

Paddle switch in PVC powder

The biggest producer of ethylene in europe needs for silos, where PVC powder is stored, limit detectors to protect against overfilling and also to detect empty. PVC powder has a low dielectric constant, the density is about 700g/l. So specially the empty detectors should have a high mechanical stability. 

Our Solution

The application is solved with rotating paddle switches RN3000. The simple electromechanical switch has a stable stainless steel extension which keeps the mechanical forces from the product. It has enough sensitivity to detect the PVC powder and protect against overfilling. The sensor is dust sealed and works reliable in PVC powder for many years. It can be adapted to different process connections and power supplys.

Products

With the following products our customer has solved this measurement task optimally:

RN 3002 Tube Extension

Full Detector
Tube extension version

  • Vertical or oblique installation.
  • Protection tube ensures high mechanical load strength to the shaft.
  • Flexible height adjustment.

RN 3003 Angled Extension

Full, Demand, Empty Detector
Right angled gearhead with extension tube

  • Horizontal installation.
  • Mechanically robust level switch for heavy bulk solids.

The Challenge

A company in Kuwait had follwong requirements for a oil-tank plant:

  • Simple system to be installed to show the level & volume in bbls in the tanks .
  • Control Panel showing all the tanks with their actual volume & nominal capacities & alarms for the full & empty tanks, (Level alarming for min/max volumes).
  • The ability to see the tank levels data online with full real time tank-level information of the inventory.
  • All sensors has to be explosion proofed as a safety standard for diesel storage tanks.
  • Customer need a simple system to run & easy to be understood by the technicians in the plant.

Our Solution

The solution was the free radiating sensor NR3100 which has the approval for zone 2. The sensors has an easy quicksetup and works reliable in this crude oil application. The level sensors are connected to the webbased visualisation system NT3500. This system offers all reqirements, the customer needs.
