Operating Principle of Non-Contacting Radar Level Sensor/Gauges (Unguided Wave)---Part one

DATE: 2016-05-17
BROWSE TIMES: 16

Radar level instruments measure the distance from the transmitter/sensor (located at some high point)to the surface of a process material located further below in much the same way as ultrasonic level sensor, by measuring the time-of -flight of a traveling wave and then determine the level of the process material. They are regarded as continuous level measurement devices because they continue to measure level even as the level of the liquid in the vessel changes.


The fundamental difference between a radar level instrument and an ultrasonic level instruments is the type of wave used. Radar level instruments use radio waves instead of sound waves used in ultrasonic instruments. Radio waves are electromagnetic in nature (comprised of alternating electric and magnetic fields), with very high frequency in the microwave frequency range - GHz.


There are two basic types of level radar instruments: guided-wave radar and non-contact wave radar. Guided-wave radar instruments use wave guide 'probes' to guide the radio waves into the process liquid while non-contact radar instruments send radio waves out through open space to reflect off process material. Note that guide-wave radar instruments are used in applications where the dielectric of the process liquid is quiet low. All radar level instruments use an antenna to broadcast or send radio signals to the process liquid whose level is to be determined. The diagram below illustrates these two approaches:

    Air purge+Nuzzle ,  Universal joint:The necessary adjunct when measuring the level of bulk solid in silos bins and tanks.When continuous microwave radar level meter  measure the level of solid medium, such as grains, cement powders, sand, stone or others 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 transmitter 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.)        &#...

    Dechuang radar level gauge, fight speed, are you afraid? At 9:24 am on January 14, 2020, our sales manager received an urgent call from a customer of China Coal Yulin Energy Chemical. An imported radar level gauge, which turned out to be a diesel oil storage tank at the work site, failed and could not operate normally, which has affected the production work on site. Urgently need a new radar level gauge and ask our company if we can provide the product as soon as possible and install it on site? Put down the phone, our sales will immediately communicate with the relevant person in charge; immediately arrange the production department to quickly debug a radar level gauge according to the customer's working conditions; the technician will bring the debugged radar lev...
