AURORA, IL – Once the petroleum refining process is complete, the results are stored at the plant until they are ready to be transported and sold. Finished refinery products are stored in tanks with capacities that often exceed 100,000 gallons. Some of the largest tanks store motor gasoline, jet fuel, diesel fuel, fuel oils, and LPG. Marketed products also include feedstocks for textiles, tires, pharmaceuticals and plastics.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.

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
