Ball Valves, Gate Valves, and 80 GHz Radar: What We've Learned
01. December 2017
Isolation valves are common in many automated processes, especially those involving harsh liquid products. Isolating a level measurement sensor from a volatile product protects plant personnel and the sensor. Historically, using a through-air radar sensor in such an application has proven problematic. After hearing about successful and reliable level measurement using 80 GHz radar on isolation valves in the field, we tested the VEGAPULS 64 on valves in our lab. Find out what we learned.
