Radar level measurement through closed tank roofs
Safe and flexible level monitoring of dangerous products in containers made of non-conductive materials
Aggressive products such as chlorides and acids are often stored in tanks made of non-conductive materials like fibreglass. This is also true for portable IBCs that require fast processing. In those cases, the installation of a level transmitter is either not desirable or simply impossible due to a lack of mounting infrastructure.
KROHNE’s OPTIWAVE FMCW radar level transmitters can be freely suspended above those tanks to measure right through the tank roofs. Unlike ultrasonic level transmitters, the tank does not need to have an opening and the radar does not have to be attached to it for reliable and accurate level measurement. This allows for more flexibility and puts operational and occupational safety first.
