How Radar Level Sensor Used in Measurement of Calcium Carbide

April 25, 2022

Calcium carbide is produced by the reaction of coke and calcium oxide. The industrial calcium carbide is a gray-black block with a purple or gray section. When it encounters water, it reacts violently to form acetylene and release heat. Calcium carbide is an important basic chemical raw material.Acetylene produced by the reaction of calcium carbide and water can synthesize many organic compounds, such as synthetic rubber, artificial resin, acetone, ketene, carbon black, etc.

A chemical company manager from Mongolia mainly produces calcium carbide and he requires us to recommend a radar level sensor for the material control. Based on his working condition, considering the characteristics of calcium carbide furnace blue carbon: lumpy material, large dust, fast feeding, special process warehouse structure, we recommend him a high frequency radar level sensor as following:

Holykell 80GHz radar level sensor

Transmission frequency: 80GHz;

Measuring range: 0.2 to 60 meters;

Measurement accuracy: ±1mm; Launch angle: 3°;

Power supply range: DC24V;

Signal output: 4~20mA;

Protection class: IP67;

Explosion-proof grade: ExdiaⅡCT6Gb;

Installation method: flange installation.

After following our suggestion, the manager bought our high frequency 80GHz radar level sensor HG80G in his production process. All the products keep working fine on the site and provide precise measurement. Our customer is quite satisfied with the measuring effect.
