Product Announcement from KROHNE Group


 FMCW Radar Measuring Device -Image

Non-contact Radar (FMCW) Level Meter for Solids

  • One converter for all antenna types (PTFE Drop, PP Drop and metallic horn)
  • The only guarantee for measuring accurately in dusty conditions
  • Uses a unique Drop antenna design for very dusty atmospheres

This device is a non-contact Radar (FMCW) Level Meter for distance, level, volume and mass measurement of powders, granulates and other solids. It gives a stabler measurement than pulse radar and is well suited to dusty process conditions. The device can operate at very low and very high process temperatures as long as the process connection temperature limits are observed.

Highlights

  • ±3 mm / ±0.12¨ standard accuracy
  • PP or PTFE Drop antenna: its shape prevents product build-up in dusty applications
  • Operates up to a flange temperature of 200°C / 390°F and 40 bar / 580 psig
  • Measuring range up to 80 m / 260 ft
  • Antenna can be extended to suit any nozzle length
  • PACTware and DTMs included as standard
  • Optional second current output
  • Directly-accessible graphic touchscreen/wizard (option)
  • An installation wizard specifically for solids that permits the instrument to measure uneven surfaces accurately
