UWT’s Nivoradar in a chemical storage tank

Radar Sensor NivoRadar® NR 3100 for level measurement
Radar Sensor NivoRadar® NR 3100 for level measurement

The challenge:

A fertilizer producer requires a solution to control high precision measurement of sulfuric acid in 4-meter tanks. Due to the material being highly corrosive, chemical resistance was vital when selecting the process material.  Quick signal response and accuracy were also important as the instrument should control subsequent processes.

The solution:

UWT has a suitable solution with the non-contact level transmitter, Nivoradar 3100 with 78Ghz frequency and the signal response of ca. 10 seconds. The plastic lens antenna made of PEI and high precision of 5mm together with stainless steel flange and stainless-steel housing were important to increase the efficiency of the process.
