"Employee safety and environmental health are priorities for industrial facility operators who are seeking innovative ways to optimize their plants"

Plant operators in the oil and gas, power, pulp and paper and mining industries can now seek to reduce their on-site radioactive source size requirements by using a nuclear gauge for the density, level and interface measurement of highly viscous process materials.

The Thermo Scientific InterfacePRO gauge can be used for traditional gamma transmission applications (level and density measurements) or in gamma backscattering applications on large process vessels and pipelines. The gauge is designed to improve process control and lower operating costs by enabling quick response to process changes or hazardous conditions. Additionally, the highly-sensitive InterfacePRO gauge uses non-intrusive and durable gamma backscatter technology that is designed to minimize maintenance and lengthen instrument life.

“Employee safety and environmental health are priorities for industrial facility operators who are seeking innovative ways to optimize their plants,” said Lars Andersson, product line manager, level and density gauges, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “By significantly reducing the size of radioactive materials needed on site, the InterfacePRO gauge is designed to help operators improve plant safety and maximize efficiency even in the toughest operating environments.”

The InterfacePRO gauge is a component of the Thermo Scientific NextGEN Nuclear Platform, which also supports the Thermo Scientific DensityPRO and LevelPRO gauges. The InterfacePRO gauge allows users to standardize all process instruments on a single platform with features including:

  • A full suite of communications protocols, including HART, Profibus PA and Foundation Fieldbus, allowing for simplified self-diagnostic, archiving and trend analysis capabilities;
  • Commonality of electronics and spare parts with Thermo Scientific DensityPRO and LevelPRO gauges; and
  • EZCal II software, which offers functions for easy calibration and configuration.
