Guided-wave radar transmitters measure level under harsh conditions

Going beyond through-air technologies, they are suitable for difficult-to-measure liquids and solids

When measuring the level of bulk solids, liquids and everything in between, guided-wave radar technology now offers more level-detection capabilities. For an ever-widening range of previously hard-to-measure products such as molten sulfur, liquid ammonia and petrochemicals, guided-wave radar transmitters provide accurate level measurements even under harsh chemical environments, wide variations in operating temperatures and pressures, and low dielectric constants. Great strides have also been taken in making these units easier to configure to a variety of process applications coupled with the simplicity of integrating these devices with most digital communication protocols.
