Measuring principle

KRG-10 measures liquid levels by transmitting radar pulses towards the liquid surface and receiving the radar echoes. The travel time for the radar pulse is proportional to the distance between the gauge and the surface.

Upon reception, microprocessors and intelligent software in the gauge head analyze the echoes and transform them into level output data.

The radar pulse is virtually less affected by the tank content and atmosphere, temperature or pressure. Thus, radar measurement is proven to be the most reliable gauging method in the most applications.

Furthermore, maintenance requirements are in fact zero that as no part of the gauge is in physical contact with liquid.

And KRG-10 has a function to remove unwanted echo. By using this function, the user can prevent the erroneous recognition of the reflected wave by unwanted echo.

All this makes KRG-10 very well suited for process tank applications in the chemical and water industry.

Stable Measurement

Disturbance Noise Elimination

Cyclical & Multi-bounce noise echoes are eliminable for stable output. It realizes stable measurement without leap in process tank measurement.

Predict Output

As the result of echo validation, KRG-10 can output predicted data reasonably.

Distance Filter Window

This window is effective for echo searching, and variable ranging available.

Bottom Echo Handler

Generally, liquids having low dielectric constant are difficult to be divided surface echo from tank bottom echo when its level is quite low and close to bottom. KRG-10 can deem the level is close to almost bottom without fluctuation.

Double Bounce Handler

Delayed echo by multi-bounce between liquid surface and tank ceiling will be eliminated.

Applications

KRG-10 is available to measure both of calm surface liquid such as storage tanks or buffer tanks and ruffled surface liquid such as reactor tanks.
