Level Measurement in Geothermal Applications


Separators, heat exchangers/evaporizers and condensers are not the only devices where level meters are applied within the geothermal power plant. Level meters have to cope with scaling, moisture and other challenges in the process. Get an overview of level measurement applications in flash, binary and hybrid plants with their specific requirements and available level measurement technologies.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn the fundamentals of separators, evaporators and condensers
  • Understand the challenges in level measurement of geothermal fluid, brine and binary fluid
  • Learn about the applicable principles for level measurement
  • See some typical examples of how theses systems are applied in the process
