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, the preferable installation method is to use a flange connection on top of the separator.
Installation In Tanks
In larger tanks – over 3 m – it is recommended to install the sensor to the side of the tank, using a standard flange connection.
In very large tanks, it is possible to use multiple sensors in parallel for complete profiling of the tank.
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.
The sensor installed into the tank visualizes and monitors:
- Full profile of the tank
- Thickness and placement of the emulsion layer, real-time

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.
