HONEYWELL has introduced its new family of microwave radar level instruments for use in plant storage tanks.
The VersaLevel line further enhances the company’s expanding field-device portfolio and provides customers highly accurate and easy-to-install devices for efficient tank-level monitoring.
Germany-based Krohne will manufacture the level transmitters to Honeywell’s standards and specifications for quality, performance and reliability.
The VersaLevel product family includes a full line of guided-wave and free-space radar level devices.
Both types of devices are suited for a wide range of industries, including chemical, minerals and mining, oil and gas, petrochemicals and pulp and paper.
The guided-radar level transmitter uses sharp electromagnetic pulses to measure distances and levels for liquids, pastes, granulates, powders and liquid interfaces.
The device has higher signal dynamics and a sharper pulse than conventional guided-wave devices, which results in better accuracy. It also features a user-friendly and easily accessible touch screen, which displays in nine languages.
The free-space radar transmitter is ideal for applications that require non-contact measurement in difficult process conditions, such as tanks with agitators. The device features triple barrier gas-tight protection for applications that involve dangerous gases.
In addition, the free-space radar device can measure up to 80m and operates up to a flange temperature of 200°C.
