Chlorine Production - Challenging Requirements For Materials and Sensors
Chlorine is used in the most diverse processes imaginable. One type of chlorine production is the electrochemical breakdown of saline water (HCl) into hydrogen and chlorine. In order to achieve the highest possible yield and at the same time low environmental impact, the latest process technology is utilized. The extreme corrosiveness of the products requires the sensors to have high chemical resistance. The sensors must also withstand the powerful electromagnetic fields created by extremely high electrical currents during electrolysis.
Continuous Level Measurement with the VEGAPULS 63
The VEGAPULS 63 radar sensor is particularly suitable for continuous level measurement of chlorine. The encapsulated antenna system is covered by a PFTE disk, so that no metal has direct contact with the product; optimal corrosion resistance is thus assured.
Level Detection with the VEGASWING 63
Reliable level detection in chlorine storage tanks is ensured with the VEGASWING 63 vibrating level switch. Completely unaffected by product characteristics and process conditions, the VEGASWING 63 delivers a dependable, clear switching signal. Depending on the type and concentration of the process material, sensor versions in V4A (stainless steel) and Hastelloy, as well as plastic or enamel coated models, are available.
