The vapour liquid separation that occurs in a knockout drum protects the waste or cooling stream from process vapours and compressors from water. This crucial measurement point means it requires constant, reliable level monitoring without being influenced by the high volume of vapour inside the vessel. A reliable instrument ensures that there is no water carry-over into the compressor, avoiding the extremely expensive downtime that results from an upset.
Diverse technologies with comparative output can provide redundant level measurement
Materials with high chemical resistance reduce maintenance costs
Easy installation and setup
