How Much Level is Enough?

Presented By

David Williams - Berthold Technologies

Conference: Buenos Aires 2018

One question that comes up in discussing continuous levels on delayed coke drums is how long of a measurement is required? This discussion comes up not only with the operator but also with the engineering company. Some of the questions are as follow.

  • Where does the level start?
  • Do we need to measure tangent to tangent?
  • We will look at the recommended length?
  • Why that length is recommended?
  • Where is the level placed on the drum?
  • Why is the level placed there?

We will look at these questions and answer why the span is what it is and where on the drum it is located.
