Next level monitoring of solids and fluids in pressure vessels

We have developed accurate non-intrusive technology for separator level measurement based on Guided Ultrasonic Waves. Our sensors detect liquids and solids level. Measurement of emulsion and foam interface layers is under development.

Get in touch with us to discuss opportunities for collaboration!

Our prototype has undergone extensive lab/pilot testing and is ready for field testing offshore!

Technology

Based on 20 years of applied research at Fraunhofer IKTS and an innovation challange by Equinor.

Features

Non-intrusive, based on Guided Ultrasonic Waves

No radioactive source

Fast and accurate measurement

No downtime during installation and testing

Scalable for different vessel geometries

Measurement of solids, oil and water levels

Detection of foam and emulsions (under development)

Potential added value: integrity monitoring (corrosion, wall thickness, cracks)
