Radiometric level measurement

Radiometric level measurement

Continuous level measurement and point level detection in liquids and bulk solids with Gamma devices

Radiometric level measurement with source container and Gammapilot provide reliable measurement values where other measuring principles can not be used anymore due to extreme process conditions or because of mechanical, geometric or construction conditions. Gamma devices are made for non-contact point level detection, continuous level, interface and density measurement in liquids, solids, suspensions or sludges. Check out the broad range of radiometric devices and click on the button below.

With radiometric measurement devices four measuring tasks (continuous level, point level, density and interface) can be solved, even under extreme process conditions. The radiation of the gamma source container is emitted almost unattenuated in one direction only, and is damped in all other directions. This guarantees highest safety for the personnel and a reliable measurement.

  • Measuring Principle Radiometric

Radiometric measurement: Measuring Principle

The gamma source, a cesium or cobalt isotope, emits gamma radiation which is attenuated as it passes through materials. The measuring effect results from the absorption of radiation by the product to be measured which is caused by level changes. The measuring system consists of a source, a source container and a compact transmitter as a receiver.

Benefits

  • Non-contact measurement from outside

  • For extreme measuring tasks where other principles can not be used anymore

  • Source container with manual or pneumatic switching on/off and padlock, cylinder lock or locking bolt for fixing the switching position
