Berthold Technologies radiometric instruments for non-contacting level and density measurement are widely used in the global oil refining industry. Among their customers are well-known companies like Exxon Mobil, Sinopec, Shell, BP, Conoco Phillips, Lukoil, Total - just to name a few.
With Berthold’s measuring solutions based on gamma absorption they help their customers to reliably control their processes and thus ensuring a safe operation and maximising efficiency and profit. Berthold is renowned for cutting-edge technology and high-class products. They provide a wide range of standard solutions to the industry and in addition they develop, in close cooperation with customers and licensors, tailored systems for new processes and measuring tasks.

To make critical applications more reliable Berthold provide interface, level and density measurements for oil/emulsions/water in desalters, distillation bottoms, delayed coking units,  solvent deasphalting units, alkylation units, resid hydrocracking, fluidised catalytic cracking units (FCC) and continuous catalytic reforming processes (CCR)

The high-sensitive detectors achieve a better measuring effect and can work with remarkably low source activities. Depending on the application the source activity can be reduced by up to 80%.

Unique features such as X-ray interference protection during weld inspections (XIP and RID), Berthold’s patented temperature and aging compensation and SIL2/SIL3 certified detectors lead to superior measurement performance and high reliability, which remains stable and unfailing throughout the whole time of operation and worldwide sales and service support  can be provided through their excellent global network.

Berthold’s non-intrusive measurement systems offer outside mounting of components, smooth handling and operation, low cost of ownership, easy installation on existing pipes or tanks without modifications. Moreover, these systems are not exposed to the harsh process conditions, free of wear and maintenance and ideal for all high temperature, high pressure applications.
