The Genesis™ Models ED1 & ED2 detectors are Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR)-based, 24 VDC level detectors designed to accurately measure the various layers in interface level measurement applications. Encompassing a number of significant engineering accomplishments, these leading-edge level detectors are designed to provide measurement performance well beyond that of many of the more traditional technologies.
Genesis models are designed to measure multiple phases in applications with thick and dynamic emulsion layers:
Vapor phase (based on tank dimensions)
Total level (e.g., hydrocarbon liquid)
Top of emulsion layer
Bottom of emulsion layer (e.g., water level)
What makes the Genesis Emulsion detector unique is that in addition to sending high frequency energy down the probe to detect the upper level in the classic sense, it is also sending energy up the probe to detect the various other levels that may be present. (Top of emulsion layer, bottom of emulsion layer, sediment). This combination of “Top-Down” and “Bottom-Up” measurement, along with very sophisticated software algorithms, makes emulsion layer detection possible.
