The NCR-84 is an 80 GHz radar used for continuous, non-contact level measurement in liquids. It is designed specifically for precise, reliable measurement in challenging conditions specific to liquids such as excessive steam, vapor, condensation, or surface foam. The signal is focused in a very narrow beam angle, allowing for precise aiming to avoid obstructions in the tank such as agitators, mixers, fittings, or heating coils. The NCR-84 is also appropriate for use in tanks with turbulent product surfaces, viscous media, and pastes.
This sensor is offered in threaded, flange and hygienic versions for a wide variety of industries and applications, plus a plastic antenna option for use in low pressure or temperature ranges. The threaded 1-1/2” version makes it convenient to mount existing small process fittings without the expense of costly mounting modifications. An optional ¾” NPT process fitting makes it easy to mount in small tanks and space-constrained areas.
