DATE: 2021-01-28

Application case|120G FMCW radar level meter is applied to the measurement of liquid level in chemical reactor


In chemical reactors, can the liquid level be monitored for complex working conditions such as small range, rapid stirring, and steam? How to provide an effective solution for liquid level measurement?


Our 120G frequency modulated radar level meter has a transmission frequency of 120~130GHz and a 10GHz frequency sweep bandwidth. It only takes 80 ms to complete a complete measurement and calculation process for a distance of 100m. Non-contact measurement, strong anti-interference ability, can overcome the influence of steam, foam and stirring on the measurement, and accurately measure the liquid level in various small-range storage tanks and reactors.

Let us take a look at the actual performance of the radar level gauge DCRD1000B1 on the chemical reactor.

On-site working conditions and instrument parameters

Chlorination workshop of a chemical company:

Instrument parameters:

Model: DCRD1000B1

Medium: certain chloride, with chlorine gas; 

Range: 4.5 meters; Process connection: DN150 PN16;

Process pressure: 1.0Mpa; Process temperature: 100°C;

On-site working conditions: The tested device is a reaction kettle with liquid chlorine and steam. The tank is stirred in the middle, and the speed is about 120 rpm. There are three baffles inside the tank.

Others: other high-frequency radar level gauges have been tried on site, and the level changes during mixing cannot be measured。

Measurement process

The most difficult point in the measurement of this working condition is that the stirring speed in the tank is too fast, and the amplitude and frequency of the liquid level fluctuation are large. The radar signal is easily interfered and interrupted during stirring. The measurement effect of the 120GHz frequency modulation continuous wave radar level meter is as follows:

Measurement results and analysis

After field test, the 120G frequency modulation radar level gauge has good measurement results, and overcomes the following measurement difficulties in complex working conditions:


1)The reactor has a relatively small volume, stirring in the middle, and there are three baffles in the middle of the tank. The radar signal is best to avoid obstacles. Therefore, the reactor basically requires the launch angle of the radar to be smaller. The launch angle of the 120G radar level gauge Only about 1°, which meets the requirements of working conditions.


2)The stirring rate is very fast, and the difference in liquid level fluctuation is about 1m. During the stirring process, the normal output of the radar level gauge must be ensured, and there should be no signal interruption or signal bounce.


3) There is liquid chlorine and steam in the reactor, which need to be anti-corrosion, and the influence of steam on the measurement should also be reduced.


In summary, this radar level gauge has been successfully applied to the level measurement of the solution in the chemical reactor, demonstrating the reliability and stability of the instrument under complex working conditions, and achieving a satisfactory measurement effect for users.

    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...

    Air purge+Nuzzle ,  Universal joint:The necessary adjunct when measuring the level of bulk solid in silos bins and tanks.When radar level meter measure the level of solid medium, such as grains, cement powders, solid particles,  the solid material  will form a stockpile or hopper in the silo when feeding  or undloading. Then the antenna of the radar level meter need to perpendicularly alignment to the medium surface,  if the material is uneven,  and the heap angle is large then the universal joint flange is needed to adjust the horn angle to aim the charge level.(Due to the inclination of the solid surface it will cause the problem of  echo decay or even the signal loss.)When measuring the bulk solids, there will bring very heavy dust.  we add an air...
