Temperature Charts: All You Need to Know

Posted by Bindicator on Sep 22, 2015 8:38:00 AM

When a temperature range is listed on a specification sheet, it is often the extreme limits of the product. To get to those temperature ratings, modifications or special configurations may be required. For instance, to reach a higher temperature, a lag may be added to the level switch to move the electronics away from the heat source. Temperature charts are created to illustrate the limits of a design configuration, and it's important to know how to interpret them properly.

Silo Series #2: Point Level Measurement

Posted by Bindicator on Jul 29, 2015 10:25:00 AM

What is Point Level Measurement?

Point level sensors are used to detect the level of material in a tank or silo. There is high level (presence of material) and low level (absence of material). High level measurement allows a vessel to be filled to capacity while preventing an overfill situation. Low level measurement alerts the facility that the material needs replenished, preventing process and/or plant downtime.

Why Frequency and Beam Angle are Important to Radar Level Measurement

Posted by Bindicator on Dec 5, 2014 10:03:55 AM

How It Works

Radar is one of the most advanced forms of level measurement technology available in the dry bulk material industry. Radar measures the level of material by monitoring the time it takes for a microwave pulse to travel from the level meter to the surface of the material being measured and back to the meter. The time is calculated into distance which is then translated into a level measurement.
