    • Recent Advances for Direct and Indirect Reading Level Gages
    • Using details from the events at the Texas City Refinery in 2005 and the Philadelphia Refinery in 2019 as a backdrop, we’ll explore ASME Section I Code requirements for level indication and move on to recent directions for improving the safety and reliability of level gages at powerhouses and in process units at refineries.     As a contributor to the US Chemical Safety Board investigation at Texas City and with a long connection to the Philadelphia Refinery, Mr. Henwood shares ways to protect plant assets and personnel with better technology that can make a real difference in unit performance and longevity.
