Application of Radar Level Meter in Environmental Protection Industry

Release date:2024年01月19日 Article author:SKE Reading quantity:377

Here we would like to introduce several typical application cases of radar level sensor gauge being used in the environmental protection industry, and analyze the measuring principles plus key points on how to choose a right radar level sensor.

1. Principle and characteristics of radar level sensor gauge

Radar level gauge uses microwave pulse to measure items. By sending microwave pulses to the liquid or solid surface and receiving the reflected pulses, it calculates the liquid level or material height based on the time and speed of microwave propagation. Radar level meters have the characteristics of non-contact measurement, high precision, high reliability, explosion-proof, etc., which are suitable for various harsh environments and mediums.

Wastewater Treatment

Radar level meters are mainly used in sewage treatment to monitor the liquid level in sewage tanks, sewage treatment units and landfills. Through real-time monitoring of the liquid level, the status of sewage treatment can be learned in time to ensure that the treatment effect reaches the standard.

At the same time, the high-precision measurement of radar level meters also helps enterprises achieve their goals of energy conservation and emission reduction. By properly controlling the liquid level, parameters such as aeration volume and stirring speed during sewage treatment can be optimized to reduce energy consumption and operating costs.

Power generation through garbage incineration

In the field of waste incineration power generation, radar level meters are mainly used to measure the height of garbage in garbage pools. By monitoring the height of garbage in real time, the stable operation of garbage incineration can be ensured and the power generation efficiency can be improved. At the same time, radar level meters also help companies achieve their goals of waste reduction and resource utilization. By precisely controlling the garbage feeding speed and incineration temperature, the utilization rate of the calorific value of the garbage can be improved and environmental pollution can be reduced.

Water resources management

Radar level meters are mainly used in the field of water resources management to measure water levels in reservoirs, water towers, wells and other places. By monitoring the water level in real time, the situation of water resources can be grasped in time to ensure stable water supply. At the same time, the high-precision measurement of radar level meters also helps enterprises achieve their goals of water conservation and emission reduction. By properly allocating water resources and optimizing water supply solutions, waste and pollution can be reduced.

Measurement of waste storage silos

Radar level meter, as a kind of non-contact and high-accuracy measuring equipment, has been widely used in the measurement of waste storage silos. Its measurement accuracy directly affects the efficiency and safety of waste disposal. By monitoring the height of waste in real time, overflow or low material can be detected in time to avoid environmental pollution or safety accidents. Meanwhile, the explosion-proof design of the radar level meter also ensures safe and stable operation in explosive, flammable and other dangerous environments.

From all above, radar level meters are widely used in the environmental protection industry, involving the level measurement of liquid, solid, gas and other media. In the selection of a radar level meter, according to the characteristics of different working conditions, select the appropriate frequency, beam angle, antenna material, power supply mode, communication protocol, temperature and pressure compensation and other parameters, so as to ensure the accuracy, stability and reliability of the measurement.
