Krohne Inc. has added three 24 GHz and three 80 GHz Optiwave radar level transmitters to its product line, which complement the existing 10 GHz devices.

The entire range of Optiwave two-wire loop-powered FMCW radar level transmitters is ideally suited to industries from chemical and petrochemical to mining, minerals, and metals processing and cover liquid and solid applications.

With the Optiwave 5200 (10 GHz) and now the Optiwave series of 24 and 80 GHz radars, Krohne offers the appropriate frequency for each application. The new 5400/6400/7400 (24 GHz) and 3500/6500/7500 (80 GHz) radars are each designed for specific industry needs, delivering accurate level measurement, even in most difficult applications.

Krohne offers a choice of process connections starting from ¾-in., as well as lens, drop, and horn antennas to suit all process and installation conditions. The Optiwave transmitters offer a measuring range from the antenna edge up to 328 ft, with accuracy from ±0.08 in. The transmitters can measure products with dielectric constants as low as 1.4, and feature a quick setup assistant for easy commissioning, as well as an empty tank spectrum function for eliminating false reflections.
