Probe Sensor

Probe Sensor Introduction

High-end Probe Sensor for applications demanding high-resolution separator emulsion thickness and location detection. The Probe Sensor can be installed at an existing flange. The same sensor is also used to monitor solid levels in a separator, enabling setting off alarms when the solid levels reach a configured point in the vessel. Emulsion Watch is the best option when existing measurement technologies are failing, for example measuring emulsion layers or if non-radioactive technology is a requirement.

Sensor Features

  • A flanged connection – available in many flange sizes and probe lengths
  • Allows visualization of emulsion thickness and location and monitoring of solid levels (see Probe Sensor Applications & Services)
  • Easy to install and maintain without any moving parts
  • Without radioactive sources, safe to use and hassle-free from regulations
  • No calibration needed – The system visualizes right after powering up the system

Installation Targets

Probe Sensor can be installed in a variety of different containers. Rocsole offers three standardized sizes (see Probe lenght table), other sizes may be available on request. Maximum length of the probe is around 4.8 m, including the measuring section of 3 m.

Due to the flexible size options, Probe Sensor can be installed in a wide variety of tanks and separators. In separators under 3 m tall, the preferable installation method is to use a flange connection on top of the separator.

In larger tanks – over 3 m – it is recommended to install the Probe Sensor to the side of the tank, using a standard flange connection. For full profiling of even the largest tanks, multiple sensors may be installed on different positions.
