Micropilot level radar

Radar level measurement

Continuous level measurement in liquids and solids with free space radar sensors

Radar level measurement with top-down installation of a Micropilot sensor offers perfect application fit in all industries. Non-contact radar with simple commissioning, trouble-free operation saves time and money. For usage in a wide range of applications - be it in simple storage tanks, in corrosive or aggressive media or high accuracy tank gauging applications. Check out the broad range of Micropilot devices for radar applications and click on the button below.

Radar level measurement is a safe solution even under extreme process conditions (pressure, temperature) and vapors. Micropilot can also be used in hygienic applications for non-contact level measurement. Micropilot versions are available for different industries like for water/wastewater, the food industry, life sciences or the process industry. Various antenna versions for every kind of radar applications are available.

  • Measuring Principle Radar with Time-of-Flight

Radar measurement: Measuring Principle

Micropilot works with high-frequency radar pulses which are emitted by an antenna and reflected from the medium surface due to a change of the dc value (relative dielectric constant). The Time-of-Flight of the reflected radar pulse is directly proportional to the distance traveled. If the tank geometry is known, the level can be calculated from this variable.

Benefits

  • Non-contact, maintenance-free measurement

  • Unaffected by medium properties like density and conductivity, in bulk solids also unaffected by filling noise and dust

  • Freely adjustable measuring range

  • For high temperatures up to +450°C/+842°F
