Processing operations facing challenging conditions measuring liquid levels in storage tanks will welcome this new 80 GHz non-contact radar level sensor from BinMaster (Lincoln, NE). Measuring distances up to 98 feet, the BinMaster NCR-84 80 GHz radar is designed specifically for reliable measurement in demanding liquid conditions including excessive steam, vapor, condensation or surface foam. The signal is focused in a very narrow beam angle, allowing for precise aiming to avoid obstructions in the tank such as agitators, mixers, fittings or heating coils. The NCR-84 is also appropriate for use in tanks with turbulent product surfaces, viscous media and slurries. Other benefits include:
- Threaded, flange and hygienic versions for a wide variety of industries and applications, plus a plastic antenna option for use in low pressure or temperature ranges.
- The capability for data from the NCR-84 to be sent to the BinView web application or Binventory software for live data monitoring from a smartphone, tablet or PC. For real-time data access in the plant near the tanks, the DPM-100 digital panel meter can display readings in gallons, headspace or level for multiple tanks.
- Plant-friendly operation and compatibility within a network of many types of sensors.
- An encapsulated PFTE antenna that is resistant to buildup and is maintenance free.
Setup and diagnostics can be done in minutes using the BinDisc module under the unit lid. The NCR-84 is simple to configure and commission, even in complex vessels.
