Instrument knowledge|How to choose the correct type of guided wave radar liquid level meter?

 

Guided wave radar level meter, a liquid level measuring instrument in industrial production, is based on the time domain reflection principle (TDR) to complete the continuous level measurements of liquids, particles and slurry. Widely used in water storage tanks, acid and alkali storage tanks, slurry storage tanks, solid particles, small oil storage tanks, various conductive, non-conductive media, corrosive media such as coal bunkers, ash bunkers, oil tanks, acid tanks, etc. 

Instrument knowledge|How to choose the correct type of guided wave radar liquid level meter?

So how to correctly choose the guided wave radar level meter? Please see the following key selection points:


1.Confirm the viscosity of the measuring medium

When selecting a guided wave radar level meter, the viscosity of the measuring medium must be confirmed. If the measuring medium is very viscous, it is not suitable to use the guided wave cable pole. This kind of contact measurement method, hanging material will affect the signal transmission and reception and generate false signals. .


2.Confirm the causticity of the measured medium

If the measured medium is a corrosive liquid, it is necessary to use a wave guide cable sleeve PTFE or FEP material.


3.Definition of measuring range

The range of the guided wave radar liquid level meter is the vertical distance from the mounting flange surface to the bottom of the tank. At the same time, reserve the lowest probe of the cable at least 30mm from the bottom of the tank to ensure that the probe does not touch the bottom of the metal tank to generate interference signals. The cable can be reserved a little longer, you can cut it by yourself, but if you break it, you need to re-customize the cable. Therefore, we must confirm the length of the cable clearly when determining the technical parameters, so as to avoid the on-site measurement.

In addition, it is especially important to note that for the guided wave radar level meter with sleeve PTFE or FEP material products, the cable length cannot be shortened once confirmed。

 

4.Confirm whether there is stirring

Select the guided wave radar level meter to confirm whether there is stirring in the storage tank, where is the position of the fan blade, the blade is very close to the pipe wall, it is not suitable to use the guided wave radar level gauge, or add a bypass tube to measure. The cable or pole should be at least 300mm away from the pipe wall.


5.Confirm the dielectric constant of the measuring medium

If the measured dielectric constant of the liquid medium is very low, you can refer to the use of guided wave double cable or guided wave coaxial radar level meter, the effect will be better.


6.Fixing the probe tip of radar level meter

If the probe tip needs to be fixed, there are two kinds of fixing methods: insulated and non-insulated.

(I)Insulation fixing refers to the insulation fixing method when the measured dielectric constant is low and fixed on the bottom of the metal tank

(II)Non-insulating fixing refers to the non-insulating fixing method used when the dielectric constant of the measured medium is high and the tank is a metal material, a material with a low dielectric constant or a material very close to the dielectric constant of the measured medium.

    Instrument knowledge|Radar level meter, how to reduce the interference in the tank on the measurement When we install the radar level meter, we will encounter many on-site storage tanks with supports, such as beams and brackets,etc . . . These supports will interfere with the signal of the radar level meter. If the above interference objects appear in the radar emission area, when the normal liquid level is below the interference objects, it will inevitably affect the normal measurement of the radar level meter, and false echo signals will appear. When encountering such situations, there are the following solutions: Method 1: Cleaning up on-site interferenceIf the interference is too large, completely occludes or most of the transmission signal of the radar level meter,...

    When selecting the type of radar level gauge, consider the influence of stirring and vacuuming, and pay attention to the power supply and output signal.1. Selection under stirringIn a tank with stirring, guided wave radar is generally not used. The force of stirring can easily bring the cable of the guided wave radar into the propeller, or bend the rod of the guided wave radar. Therefore, only high-frequency or low-frequency horn radar for non-contact measurement can be selected.If the lowest liquid level on site is above the stirring propeller, it generally has no effect on the measurement. If the minimum liquid level will be lower than the stirring propeller, it is necessary to filter out the signal reflected by the propeller by learning the function of false echo, so as to ensure that t...

    Intelligent radar water level meter helps carry out flood prevention workRecently, as tropical disturbances in the southern coastal areas of my country have developed into tropical depressions, heavy rainfall has appeared in many areas of southern my country, and the flood control warning has been sounded. Since my country entered the flood season, a new round of flood control and early warning work has once again been put on the agenda. In flood warning work, the status of monitoring instruments can hardly be shaken. In order to do a good job in flood control and early warning, and prevent problems as much as possible, the intelligent radar water level meter DCRD1000A2 researched and developed by Xi'an Dechuang Electrictrical Technology Co., Ltd. not only greatly improves the measurem...

    Why choose the radar level sensor in industrial process level instruments? The radar level sensor can measure the level that many other level instruments cannot measure, radar level sensor uses the microwave pulse measurement method and can work normally within the specified frequency range. It can be used in environments where inert gases and volatilization exist under the interference of temperature or pressure changes. The radar level sensor is a non-contact continuous measurement type process level instruments, which can be used to measure the level of liquids or solids, particle sizes and particulate materials. It corresponds to 4-20mA output, which is set by inputting the empty tank height E (=zero point), the full tank height F (=full scale) a...
