HOUSTON – SOR Controls Group is unveiling its patent-pending magnetic level indicator, 815DT smart differential pressure transmitter and temperature sensor product line at this year’s OTC.

The SOR 1100 is a magnetic level indicator (or mag-gauge) and visually indicates the liquid level of most any process media. The appeal of magnetic level indicators is total isolation of the process within a sealed piping column.

The company says another advantage of the SOR 1100 is that multiple devices can be triggered by the magnetic field of the float. It is possible to attach other level instruments to the outside of the primary chamber or in a secondary chamber. Applications include, but are not limited to: oil/water separators, flash drums, surge tanks, gas chillers, vacuum tower bottoms, alkylation units, propane vessels, and storage tanks.

The SOR temperature sensor line will also make its premier at OTC 2014. The temperature sensor line also include multipoint assemblies that allow, with a single process connection, the reading of up to 80+ temperature points to provide a temperature profile throughout the length of the column, tank, or reactor.

In addition to the introduction of new products, Engineering Manager Russ Carlson will present a white paper entitled “Wellhead Pressure Interlock Protection” during the “Subsea Equipment – Industry Needs Development Challenges” session on Wednesday, May 7 at 2 p.m. LaQuayne Wright from Chevron U.S.A. is the co-author of this paper.
