Micropilot FMR67 continuous wave (FMCW) radar for continuous level monitoring

Results:

  • Secure operation under extreme conditions

  • Reliable operation

Challenges:

  • Inventory management has often been difficult in the past due to expensive and unreliable methods using sonar instrumentation.

  • The angle of repose lead to signal loss.

  • Coatings or contamination due to extreme cloud of dust form during filling cycle.

  • Solids tends to be very low dielectric constant and its bulk density is low.

Solution:

One of the most advanced radar instruments uses 80 GHz frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar for continuous level monitoring.
This instrument has a short-wave length of only 4 mm, along with a narrow beam path of just 3 degrees. The combination of a short-wave length that performs well in small particle solids like palm kernel, and a narrow beam that does not see or reflect off objects, makes FMCW radar ideal for solids applications.

Component:

Micropilot FMR67 : Measures independent from density or bulk weight, conductivity, dielectric constant, temperature and dust.
