Guided Wave Radar Level Meter FLEX80Y Series

Measuring Principle

High frequency microwave pulses are coupled on a cable or rod and guided along the probe. The pulse is reflected by the product surface. The time from emission to reception of the signals is proportional to the distance of the level. The instruments are already preset to the ordered probe length (0 % and 100 %). In many cases, a setup on site is not necessary. In any case you carry out the setup of FLEX without medium.
The shortenable, bare cable and rod versions can be simply adapted to the local conditions, if necessary.

Level in liquid

Density fluctuations, steam generation or strong pressure and temperature fluctuations do not influence the measuring result. Also buildup on the probe or the vessel wall do not influence the measurement.
This makes the FLEX simple in planning and commissioning.
An ideal application is level measurement in a bypass tube or standpipe where even products with a dielectric constant of 1.4 can be measured reliably. Weld joints, buildup and corrosion inside the tube do not influence the accuracy of the level measurement. Also in case of overfilling up to the process fitting, your measurement is safe.
FLEX 81Y offers also a special solution for ammonia applications.

Interface measurement in liquids

Non-conductive products only reflect the energy of the microwave partly. The energy that is not reflected passes the medium and is reflected at the phase interface to a second liquid. This effect is used by the interface measurement. You can simply select this function on FLEX via the adjustment tools. By doing so, you get reliably the total level as well as the level of the lower menu in your vessel.
Typical applications are interface measurements in storage tanks, separators and pump sumps. Generally the FLEX determines the level of the water layer below a non-conductive medium. The FLEX is independent of the density of the medium, this means for you a reliable, mantenance-free and precise measurement.

Level in bulk solids

Typical process proporties in bulk solids are strong dust and noise generation, buildup or condensation and of course material cones.
With the FLEX you have the ideal measurement for your silo or bunker for such conditions. Also typical product properties such as, e.g. the moisture content, the mixture ratio or the granulation size are not important and make the planning really simple. The intelligent software gives you high measurement certainty and a well monitored probe.
Even in products with small dielectric constant (from 1.1), a reliable measurement is ensured thanks to the "thinking" processing.
