Radar Level Transmitter For Molten Metal Level Measurement

The Radar level transmitter is known well for the accuracy and low maintenance it offers to the users. In the metal industry, molten metal furnaces have high temperatures and gases which call for special level measurement technology. Ultrasonic level transmitter fails to work here due to conditions unfavourable to their operations. Also, the presence of gases and foam disrupts the ultrasound waves and the readings are misleading and inaccurate. On the other hand, other level measurement technologies like float switches have a high maintenance cost as they need to be replaced frequently. Since radar level transmitters use radio waves or electromagnetic waves, they are independent of external factors such as gases, pressure, high temperatures, and material of the furnace.
