Factors that should be considered when designing signal processing for radar level gauges/level transmitter

 

The radar level transmitter is a very practical level measurement. In the actual industrial application site, there will be a variety of non-ideal conditions and the following five factors:

 

1. The application occasions of radar level gauges/level transmitter are often limited and small spaces, rather than open huge spaces. The signal emitted by the radar level gauge/level transmitter is an electromagnetic wave, which diverges in space and has all the characteristics of an electromagnetic wave, such as reflection, diffraction, and refraction. Any object in the propagation room will reflect the signal. A small space will produce many reflected signals, including direct reflection signals on the surface of the object, and back and forth reflections and oscillations of the signal (multiple reflections on the surface).

 

2. When the height of the liquid level is different, it is equivalent to the continuous change of the measurement space, and the reflection and oscillation of the signal are different. Especially when the space to be measured has a curved surface, such as a vaulted tank, a spherical container or a horizontal elliptical lift, because the curved surface has a focusing effect on electromagnetic waves, the height change of the liquid level has a greater impact on the reflection.

 

3. After the radar level gauge/level transmitter is installed and put into use, the space surface conditions of the application occasions are constantly changing. Taking the reaction tank as an example, the medium that needs to be measured in the chemical process is various, and the liquid level will change when feeding. Material adhesion, changes in the physical or chemical properties of the inner surface of the tank, etc., these changes will inevitably affect the intensity of the reflected signal.

 

4.The medium of some application sites will directly affect the transmission and reception of radar waves. On the one hand, it affects the antenna, such as steam condensing on the surface of the antenna, and physical crystals on the surface of the antenna. On the other hand, the volatilization or atomization of the medium in the tank will also affect the propagation of radar waves, which will affect the measurement.

 

5. The measured liquid level also has a variety of changes, such as a mirror when it is still; the surface will fluctuate when the liquid level changes; sometimes there may be bubbles. Under different circumstances, the multiple reflections of the signal will change.

    1. Primary instrument and secondary instrument are idioms used in instrument installation engineering. The exact name should be measuring instrument and display instrument. The measuring instrument is in direct contact with the medium and is installed on-site outdoors, while the display instrument is mostly installed on the control room panel. In order to distinguish the instruments in a set of systems, the instruments installed on-site are referred to as primary instruments, and the panel-mounted display instruments are referred to as secondary instruments. The professional interpretation of the secondary instrument is an instrument that accepts electrical or gas signals sent by transmitters, converters, sensors (including thermocouples, thermal resistances), etc., and indicates the measu...

    Maintenance example: troubleshooting and maintenance of radar level meter F1401. Instrument type: 26G high frequency radar level meter2. Failure category: F1403. Failure analysis: F140 means that the echo signal is weak or there is no echo signal.So, how to solve this problem? The specific operations are as follows:Step 1:Troubleshooting on sitea. Check that the range set by the radar must be greater than the total range of the tank.b. When the measured medium is liquid, check whether the radar sensor enters water vapor.When the measured medium is solid, it needs to be checked for crystallization or excessive dust accumulation.The above cleaning is complete and reinstalled, and then adjust the radar angle until the radar echo signal is the strongest.Step 2: Oscilloscope test and repai...
