Non-contact distance sensors measure without physical contact between sensor and measuring object.
Certified radar technology for uncomplicated level measurement for storing processes:
Fast & precise detection of moving surfaces
What is the Miners Canary?
In order to define the correct level measurement technology it is essential to analyze the different process parameters of the single application such as material properties, process temperatures, pressure and connections as well as the process atmosphere. The selection of the right level measurement technologies, their correct configuration and smart positioning will save substantial costs and add up to a significant improvement in the plants’ economic efficiency over its lifecycle.
Continuous level measurement between double filling: Optimum echo quality & dust-tight design make it possible
Many an inconspicuous component part can quickly become a problem if it does not function reliably. In the case of level monitoring, for example, cost-causing silo overfilling or running empty, which can result in a production standstill, are avoided. In order to integrate sensors perfectly into plants, the highest process compatibility is required for the individual production stages, as well as a certified design. For an animal feed producer in Chile, it should also be a non-contact measurement technology for the storage of powdered raw materials, which operates under high dust generation during the dynamic filling process.
When configuring a suitable sensor system for the plant operator, the focus was on process reliability, durability and simplicity. Furthermore, the requirements for the special installation situation had to be taken into account.
Innovative solutions for cooling tanks of the power industry: Contact-free radar sensor for content level measurement detection in seawater tanks
In Malaysia, a plant operator in the power generation field was looking for a smart solution for continuous level monitoring of its seawater tanks. To meet the challenges of space constraints and the salty atmosphere within the containers with robust accurate content detection, the NivoRadar® NR 3000 contact-free radar sensor with robust stainless steel housing was used.
Optimize sugar production: level limit measurement with vibrating rod & continuous measurement with radar
To record stock levels and control recipes for batch and continuous blending, plants need reliable and accurate measurement data to ensure that everything runs smoothly in production. Every industry with its variety of complex applications and materials likes to surprise at this point with tricky tasks. In the food sector, high standards generally have to be met in terms of hygiene and process reliability. In the case of the application processes of a sugar manufacturer in Central American Guatemala, it becomes clear that reliable, durable and flexible solutions for batch measurement have a positive effect on the entire processing procedure.
