Other fossil fuel services include:
● Data acquisition.
● Level measurement in the water / steam system
dp level / dp flow in the water / steam system.
● Pressure measurement in the water / steam system.
● Level measurement in the lime silo, ammonia tank, and coal bunkers.
● Leakage detection to protect the generator.
● Monitoring the lubrication circuit.
● Flue-gas flow rate.
● Point level detection at the electrostatic precipitator.
