Level Measurement Solutions for Compressor Scrubbers

Posted by TechStar on Jan 24, 2023 9:23:00 AM

Natural gas can travel through thousands of miles of pipeline. In order to avoid pressure reductions and the resulting slowdowns caused by distance, friction, and elevation, natural gas must be pressurized. Compressors placed at key intervals keep the natural gas moving evenly and reliably. These compressors are generally grouped in stations, which are strategically located along the pipeline networks that transport and store the gas.

A typical compressor station consists of an inlet scrubber to collect liquids and slugs that may have formed in the gas pipeline. These compressor scrubbers have a primary section where liquids and solid parts are separated from the gas stream, and a secondary section where oil mist is removed.

Why is the dynamic range of a radar sensor important?

Why does a large dynamic range improve visibility?

For most of us, the bat species Microchiroptera is not the first thing that springs when trying to think of examples of the astounding achievements of evolution. But with its echo-locating system, it is the top performer among mammals when it comes to seeing in the dark, which means it can more easily locate the smallest of insects for food. Radar sensors function according to a similar principle. The better they can hear their "locating sounds" – or, if figuratively applied to radar sensors, the greater the dynamics, – the better the visibility of the level echo.
