LB 480 SENSseries radiometric level / density detectors are announced as "the answer to many of the toughest process measurement applications in the oil and gas industry." Ruggedly designed for hostile environments, new LB 480 has been awarded SIL 2 and 3 certification (TuV Sud according to IEC 61508:2010 guidelines).
For both level (continuous and point) and density measuring - systems employ sophisticated electronics and software routines.
Their features enhance production capabilities and efficiencies in refining and oil production. These include CPU monitoring through a watchdog timer, automatic gas density compensation, monitored current output, plus detector temperature monitoring with min/max threshold for cooling water operation.
