Generally in the cement storage silo, the dust is very heavy and covers the antenna. DK value is very small. The key for this application, we applied ANL-9127 120GHz FMCW radar level transmitter without air purge. Maintenance free.
Key points: dusty environment, build up, maintenance free
This is a typical application of cement storage silo. For continous measurement, it requires the radar level transmitter cannot be affected by the dusts, especially the field without air source. Most of time, the antenna is stuck with the cement powder. However, for ANL-9127 120GHz FMCW radar level transmitter, there is no need of air purge, and still output stable level measurement to the controller.ANL-9127, 120GHz FMCW THz radar level transmitter, is the first 120GHz radar around the world. It is based on advanced FMCW (Frequency-Modulated-Continuous-Wave) technology. It can reach 1° beam angle, and delivers good sensitivity and accuracy. It offers higher bandwidth. These advantages make measurement much easier, more accurate, more stable and environmental adaptability, no matter of solids or liquids. Dusty or sticky environment does not interfere with radar level transmitter's detection.
- Strong penetration unaffected by dusty environment
- Easy installation and maintenance free
- Accurate and reliable measurement
Two sets of ANL-9127 was installed on the top of clinker silo
