The Optiwave 6300 C radar device is ideal for solid measurement, specifically designed for measuring the uneven surface of silo contents. It measures powder, granulates, and bulk solids in buffer silos, hoppers, bulk storage containers, and on conveyor belts. Its versatile design makes it suitable for a variety of industries, including mineral and mining, food, chemicals, pulp and paper, and power. The drop form of the Optiwave 6300 C’s plastic antenna generates a smaller beam angle (2º) than conventional antennas. This feature makes it unnecessary to use an antenna-aiming kit to amplify the reflected signal. The drop form also prevents crusting or dust layers on the antenna, making it excellent for applications with dust formation, such as mineral powder and granulates or wood chips.
