Density measurement for resid hydrocrackers

Level and density measurement on Resid Hydrocracker reactors. The resid hydrocracking process is becoming more and more attractive to refiners as it allows a higher conversion rate than other heavy oil conversion processes. It is used to crack heavy fractions to achieve lighter and more valuable products. Resid hydrocrackers are challenging to operate due to the complex set of reaction vessels, catalyst handling and separating units, and elevated temperatures and pressures in the presence of hydrogen. Radiometric measurements from Berthold offer enhanced control for these units, and provide additional insight into the process that can be used to increase production.
