  • Measuring the Level of Bulk Solids Stored in Silos

    Guided wave radar (GWR), ultrasonic, and pulse radar are time-of-flight (TOF) technologies used to detect level by measuring the time it takes for a microwave or ultrasonic signal to be sent, reflect from the surface of the material being measured, and return to the instrument. Measuring the level...
