Methods for Install Guided Wave Radar Transmitters

March 19, 2021

Guided wave radar level transmitter is a common industrial instrument that can be used to measure both liquids and solids, which is not affected by vacuum, steam, noise etc. In order to achieve best measurement effect, how to install them really matters.

1. The highest material level shall not enter the blind area of the measurement;

2. Install the guided wave radar transmitter at the position where is1/6-1/4 of the diameter of the tank (1/10 of the measured range minimum). Keep the probe a certain distance away from the tank wall, the minimum distance from the tank wall to the probe should be greater than 500mm; and leave at least 30mm from the probe to the tank bottom.

3.Far away from the outlet and inlet.

4.Cables or probes must not touch the internal obstacles, the minimum distance between the probe and the obstacle in the tank is greater than 300mm. Try to avoid human ladders, limit switches, heating equipment, brackets, etc installed in the tank.

Thanks to the guided wave radar level transmitter principle(TDR principle), the guided wave radar transmitters are enabled to work in a variety of complex conditions.
