field-proven
SOR 1500 series level switches have conquered the test of time under some of the toughest operating conditions the oil patch. Designed for harsh and hazardous environments and process materials where tough welds and rugged components are critical, the 1500s are built to take it.

Application: Separators
Multiple separators are a common sight in the natural gas industry. Even with raw gas wells, there is always condensate, water, or some other NGL that needs to be separated prior to transporting it for processing. There are a number of separation technologies and all of them require collection of these liquids after separation. Some are simple gravity separators, some can be quite elaborate. Regardless of the separation method, SOR 1500s fit the application.

simple, reliable solutions


SOR 1500 series mechanical level switches and a generic, horizontal separator process.

Inlet separator As raw gas from the field enters large vessels in the plant called inlet separators, condensate (natural gasoline) and water is removed from the main gas stream. An SOR 1510 level switch is mounted in a separator at, or about, the same elevation as the inlet pipe that brings in combinations of fluids such as oil, water, gas and condensate. A shut-off valve is installed in the inlet piping that is usually kept open by air pressure and allows the fluid mix to enter the vessel. When liquid reaches the float on the 1510, the switch actuates. Upon actuation, a signal is sent to (for example) a solenoid valve (sometimes via a PLC) that blocks the air normally routed to the valve. With the air supply cut off, the valve closes and fluid flow to the separator comes to a halt. When an SOR 1540 is used, the air supply reaches the shut-off valve via the pneumatic level switch. When actuated, the air is blocked and the shut-off valve closes because of a lack of air supply. In both cases, a separate level controller works in conjunction with a dump valve that drains the liquid from the separator.

Blow case separator Another specific separator application where 1500 series level switches excel is controlling a blowcase separator upstream from a compressor. A blowcase separator is essentially two vessels connected vertically. Gas flows into the upper vessel (compressor) and gravity pulls liquids down into the lower vessel (blowcase). When the blowcase is full, a 1500 series switch trips and closes a valve between the two tanks. A second valve opens and allows the compressed gas from above back down into the blowcase. This forces the accumulated liquids out into the pipeline downstream from the compressor. A second 1500 series switch is often used as a low level to reset the system when the blowcase empties. Both the 1510 and 1540 may be used with equal effectiveness; the one you choose depends only on the application and your preference.

rising above it. If the level reaches the switch, a signal is sent to a solenoid that works in conjunction with a dump valve which drains the liquid from the scrubber/contactor/absorber.

Flash tank separator-condenser When absorbing water from the wet gas stream, the glycol solution will sometimes pick up small amounts of methane and other compounds. Flash tank separators decrease the losses of these materials before the glycol solution reaches the boiler. The process virtually eliminates the burning and subsequent venting of these closely monitored compounds. SOR 1500 series switches are a popular choice to monitor flash tank levels and to prevent them from reaching a critical point.

The 1500s are not restricted to collection tanks. They may also be used to control the level of sour applications and/or sweetening solutions with NACE certification.

Glycol dehydrator Often, a glycol dehydrator is necessary for removal of tiny water droplets from natural gas if the water was not completely extracted with the separator. The process involves dehydrating the natural gas and usually calls for one of two processes: absorption or adsorption. The 1500 series switches fall into the absorption process. Glycol dehydration involves putting glycol in contact with a stream of natural gas that contains water. The glycol absorbs the water from the wet gas stream, becomes heavier and sinks to the bottom of the contactor where it is expelled. The natural gas is then easily routed out of the dehydrator and the glycol/water solution is sent to a special boiler that steams away the water allowing the glycol to be recycled. An SOR 1500 series mechanical level switch is installed on the inlet scrubber/contactor/absorber to monitor glycol/water levels. When mounted below the wet gas inlet, it prevents the glycol/water level from

Manual Check
The original 1500 was born from customer input and SOR continues the tradition by offering a manual check option for the 1500 series electric level switch. The optional manual check allows the user to verify switch integrity without removing it from the vessel or increasing or decreasing liquid levels. This is particularly useful for systems testing in safety applications, such as a manual override, where the switch is not called upon very often. It may also be used as a method to manually trigger a valve or activate the normal function of the switch. Many customers are mandated by regulatory authorities to include this type of function. Others just like the added functionality and peace of mind the manual check provides.

Chambers
Customers often ask SOR to use its machining and welding expertise to make small chambers that go with the 1500s they purchase. Thanks to a major expansion of the SOR manufacturing facilities, we now offer competitively priced, ANSI quality chambers for use with the 1500 series products.

Flexible processes make it possible for us to offer chambers for both 1-1/2 and 2-inch body 1500 series products, as well as a wide range of available process connections. Whether you require the standard 1-inch NPT or even flanged connections, SOR can make it happen. Just give us your requirements and were off and running. With chambers from SOR, you can consolidate vendors and buy from a name you have trusted for many years.

Extended Float
The manual check option is activated by simply pushing the self returning plunger. The manual check can also be activated by purchasing the MD option that provides a 20 remote cable. Whatever your application, the manual check option provides added functionality to the 1500 series without compromising pressure or temperature ratings. On occasion we have customers inquire about an extended float option for the 1500 series. These float extensions are available in a variety of lengths and materials that depend on the application, conditions and specs that the customer demands. This option extends the pivot arm and places the float further into the process vessel. It is particularly helpful in applications where the nozzle diameter is too small or where process build-up can limit the full travel of the float.

There are times when extending the float can have adverse effects on the units ability to handle lower specific gravities. Thats why SOR has several different options available and is prepared to design a solution specifically for you if necessary. Contact your local SOR representative for more information about SOR chambers, Manual Check, and Extended Float Options.
