Instrument Knowledge|How to install DCRD1000A series radar level gauge correctly?

DATE: 2020-07-14

The DCRD1000A series radar liquid level gauge is a 26G high-frequency, non-contact radar level measuring instrument. It has the advantages of high performance, high precision and long service life. It can adapt to the harsh production environments of high temperature, high pressure, steam, dust, etc. The maximum measuring distance can reach 70 meters.


So, how to properly install the radar level gauge to ensure that the meter can work normally? Please see the following notes:


1. Installation Space

1) Installed at 1/4 of the diameter, and the minimum distance from the tank wall is greater than 250mm

2) Note: ①. Reference plane ②. Center of container or axis of symmetry

2. Conical tank installation

  The top surface of the conical tank can be installed in the middle of the top of the tank to ensure that the bottom of the cone can be measured

3. Solid pile

For solid materials, there are piles or nests, and the antenna should be aimed at the surface. If the material surface is uneven and the cone angle is too large, you must use a universal flange to adjust the antenna angle so that the antenna is aligned with the material surface as much as possible.

4. Material inlet port

1) The radar cannot be installed above the feed inlet;


2) When installing outdoors, sun-shading and rain-proof measures should be taken.


3) As shown in the figure: ①. Correct ②. Error

5. Arched and round tanks

When the radar is installed in the middle of the arched and round tank roof, it will not only produce indirect echoes but also receive the effect of multiple echoes; the multiple echoes may be greater than the threshold of the real echo, because multiples can be concentrated through the top Echo; therefore, the radar cannot be installed in the middle of the arched, round tank roof

6. Obstacles in the tank

There are obstacles in the area radiated by the transmitted microwave beam, such as human ladders, limit switches, heating equipment, brackets, etc., which can cause interference and lead to measurement errors. If it is affected, you need to add a guided wave tube for measurement.

7. Takeover height requirements

It must be ensured that the antenna is at least 10mm deep into the tank.

    Radar level transmitter are currently widely used in the monitoring of solids, dust particles, liquids, slurries, river water levels, etc. The level signal detected by the radar level transmitter is ultimately connected to the back of our automation control equipment or to the secondary display meter for monitoring control. The specific power supply and communication methods are as follows:1. (4 ~ 20) mA / 24V DC / HART two-wire system2. (4 ~ 20) mA / 24V DC / HART four-wire system3. (4 ~ 20) mA / (85~ 265) V AC / HART four-wire system4. RS485/Modbus/( 6~26)V DC5. Radio frequency 433MThe customer can select the power supply and communication mode according to the actual requirements of the site.

    The screw connection is a widely used detachable fixed connection, which has the advantages of simple structure, reliable connection, and convenient assembly and disassembly. Thread is a key part of thread coupling and screw drive, let us take a look at the classification of thread.According to the tooth shape, it can be divided into triangle, trapezoid, rectangle, zigzag and arc thread;According to the thread rotation direction, it can be divided into left-handed and right-handed;According to the number of spiral lines, it can be divided into single line and multi-line;According to the shape of the thread matrix, it can be divided into cylinder and cone.For threaded connections of radar level transmitters, there are two most common types: G 1 1 / 2A thread; NPT thread.

    Case application I The anti-corrosion radar level meter DCRD1000A5&DCRD1000C5 was successfully applied to a chemical project in Inner Mongolia Since Acid-base solutions are extremely corrosive in industrial production measurement applications, the wetted materials of equipment must be anti-corrosion materials. Our high-frequency radar level meter DCRD1000A5 and guided wave radar level gauge DCRD1000C5 are special models for corrosive conditions. Radar antennas are made of PTFE with good anti-corrosion performance, which has good sealing performance, strong corrosion resistance and stable measurement results.Any inquiry about the radar level meter, welcome to contact us at any time.

    The  Features of DCRD1000C series of Guided Wave Radar Level meter (GWR)The guided wave radar level meter is an excellent level meter with advanced technology, excellent workmanship and high precision. When the guided wave radar level meter is working, an electromagnetic pulse signal is emitted, which is transmitted to the liquid level and returned at a constant speed through a probe or a steel cable, thereby simply and accurately calculating the liquid level height.Guided wave radar level meter are currently used in a wide variety of tank containers. It is used to measure the liquid level or level of medium such as aqueous medium, acidic medium, alkaline medium, oil medium, and particles.The guided wave radar level meter (DCRD1000C series) independently developed by Xi'an Dechuan...
