Magnetrol-AMETEK has released the Genesis Multiphase Detector for multiphase detection, measurement and control

Multiphase level measurements exist throughout process industries. They are especially significant in the oil & gas and petrochemical sectors due to the value derived from effectively separating water and hydrocarbons. While level instrumentation has come a long way in measuring liquids of all varieties, multiphase level measurement remains a challenge and a considerable opportunity.

The new Genesis™ Multiphase Detector from Magnetrol is designed to measure multiple phases in applications with thick and dynamic emulsion layers:

Vapour phase

Total level (e.g., hydrocarbon liquid)

Top of emulsion layer

Bottom of emulsion layer (e.g., water level)


The Genesis addresses the challenges of measuring dynamic conditions in difficult processes, such as desalters and separators. It is a powerful, cost-effective solution capable of measuring total level, emulsion layers, and sediment from a single opening in the vessel. It offers a number of features and benefits including:

24VDC input with four (4) 4-20mA outputs (including HART) for convenient control of total level, top of emulsion, water level, and sediment

Concurrent top-down and bottom-up signal generation

Proprietary and innovative software algorithms for interpreting signals

Changing media characteristics have no effect on level measurement

Four-button keypad and graphic LCD display allow for viewing of configuration parameters and performance curves

Proactive diagnostics for scheduling maintenance and mitigating unplanned shutdowns.
