Selecting the Right Technology to Measure Level and Volume of Solids
Figure 1: Solids don’t naturally form a uniform level, so there are often huge differences between peaks and troughs.
Figure 2: Transmitters using FMCW technology, such as Emerson’s Rosemount 5408 level transmitter, send a signal constantly rather than pulses.
Figure 3: The latest acoustic phased-array antenna devices, such as Emerson’s Rosemount 5708 3D solids scanner, not only provide continuous online volume measurement but also offer visualization of the various peaks and valleys within vessels.
