BRANFORD, CT – Steam cogeneration, or CHP, is a highly efficient and environmentally friendly way to produce useful heat from electricity production. However, operating conditions in a CHP plant can be challenging for the longevity of equipment and components. Water is at a constant 260˚F (126˚C) and mineral salts and dirt create a corrosive environment that shortens the useful life of equipment.Read more
Level Control and Measurement
Fluid Level Control
Fluid level control is a mechanism, device or system which monitors, compares and regulates the level of liquids or gases within a process to a set value. Level control is used to adjust the level value to a safe level using electric or pneumatic signals. To provide good control, accurate measurement is paramount.
Fluid Level Measurement
Level measurement determines the position of the level relative to the top of bottom of the process fluid storage tank or silo. Level control and measurement is essential to assure the safety and profitability of industrial processes. This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in level control and measurement of fluids.
