  • Selecting the Right Technology to Measure Level and Volume of Solids

    November 30, 2017

    Measuring the level and volume of powders and bulk solids in a vessel can be considerably more challenging than determining the level of a liquid. While measuring liquid level presents many challenges, most present a uniform surface. Solids don’t behave as predictably, and this often causes...

It was particularly critical that the flow measurement be performed in-line (on-line) within the process, thereby...

  • Measuring the Level of Bulk Solids Stored in Silos

    October 18, 2017

    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...
