Non-contact radar continuously measures the level of powders, granules, solids, or liquids in a vessel. Reliable and precise in high dust, 80 GHz non-contact radar excels in powders and solids in tall and narrow vessels. Pulse radar transmitters using a lower frequency are more commonly used in liquids and perform in diverse tank shapes and environmental conditions.
3D scanners provide continuous, non-contact level measurement using dust-penetrating technology for unsurpassed bin volume accuracy. Unlike single point devices, BinMaster's 3DLevelScanners measure multiple points to detect irregular material surfaces, cone up/down conditions, or sidewall buildup. Advanced acoustics-based technology is proven to perform in powders and bulk solids contained in tanks, silos, domes, warehouses, open bins, and piles.
Guided wave radar provides highly accurate, continuous level measurement utilizing time domain reflectometry (TDR) to measure the distance, level, and volume of material contained in bins, tanks, and silos. It performs reliably and is immune to dust, humidity, temperature, pressure, and bulk density changes as well as noise that might be present when filling or emptying the vessel.
A laser level measurement sensor is used for level control, plugged chute detection, and monitoring buildup. This non-contact device measures in a tight beam, making it suitable for use in very narrow vessels, constrained spaces, or in applications where the beam must be precisely targeted to avoid walls or other structures. Laser can be pointed at an outlet to ensure timely replenishment of material or mounted near the sidewall to detect buildup.
