Hydra Step Level Monitoring System

INTRODUCTION

Water level detecting is critical in drums and boilers and other steam-raising systems since steam content inhibits accurate level control. There is the possibility of drum level falling below set-point, consequently the boiler can run dry, while if the water increase to higher level than set-point, wet steam enters downstream sections.

Hydra step water/steam monitoring systems are electronic gauging systems consisting of a water column which is connected to the drum, water enters the column from the vessel and by electrode signals based on the conductivity principle, the level of water is measured and monitored. This system is an alternative to water level gauges on boilers, giving a more reliable level indication than conventional visual gauges.
