Rocsole Emulsion Watch
Now there's an alternative to nucleonic devices. Seeing and measuring a separator's emulsion layer or solid level, as well as providing a full profile of the separator, Rocsole's Emulsion Watch is non-radioactive, works when contaminated with Rocsole's See Beyond -technology and allows you to:
How Our Emulsion Watch Works
Utilizing leading-edge tomographic technology, our Emulsion Watch is a real-time, non-radioactive monitoring solution that physically sees and measures a tank’s emulsion layer, improving separation efficiency by optimizing residence time and resulting in higher quality output downstream. Process imaging and measurement is accomplished using a sensor, which is simple to install and requires minimal maintenance. The system works with solids, foams, liquids and gas.

Emulsion Watch Can Be Installed In a Wide Variety of Vessels
The sensor can be installed in a variety of different containers. Maximum length of the sensor is around 4.8 m, including the measuring section of 3 m. Installation method depends on the height of the container, larger containers require a larger sensor so to maximize the efficiency of the measuring section on the sensor and the imaging and the profiling of the containers contents, side flange can be used to achieve best results.
Installation In Separators
In separators under 3 m tall, it is recommended to use the Separator Profiler. the preferable installation method is to use a flange connection on top of the separator.
Installation In Tanks
For tanks and other large storage vessels, Rocsole offers a new Tank Profiler sensor. The sensor is installed from the top using a intrinsically safe cable conductor for power and data. This type of installation is usually easy to perform and makes the vertical positioning of the sensor very easy. The electronics/power feed unit is IECEx Zone 1 certified, while the sensor itself is Zone 0 certified, making it safe to use in every process.
Improve Separation Efficiency by Optimizing the Emulsion
In Oil & Gas operations, it is very difficult to identify what is happening inside a separator, tank or other vessel. Installing Emulsion Watch is a real eye-opener as it will allow operators to see everything in real time.
In short, the benefits of Separator Profiler with Emulsion Watch are clear:

Avoid the Cost of Ownership Associated With Radioactive Devices
Rocsole's technology is based on a safe electric measurement technology. It doesn't need any certifications related to nucleonic sources and their transport or usage on the field.
