Radar level sensor belongs to the general-purpose radar level meter, it is based on the principle of time travel measurement instrument, radar wave running at the speed of light, the running time can be converted into level signals through the electronic components. The probe sends out high-frequency pulses that propagate at the speed of light in space, and when the pulses meet the surface of the material, they are reflected back and received by the receiver in the instrument, and the distance signal is converted into a level signal. As refineries are at the heart of the petroleum industry, the importance of level measurement is obvious. It is not only the key to ensure the efficient operation of the production process, but also an import-ant cornerstone of product quality and safety.

However, the level measurement environment in refineries is often full of variables, the liquid medium is very different, and the measurement conditions are exceptionally harsh, all of which pose a great challenge to the level measurement. SKE's tank radar level meter with its unique advantages, for the refinery level measurement provides an effective solution.

Measurement Difficulties

The difficulties in liquid level measurement in refineries are mainly reflected in the following aspects: First, the liquid media are complex and diverse, including crude oil, refined oil, various chemical raw materials, etc. The physical and chemical properties of these media are quite different, which poses a great challenge to liquid level measurement equipment. Second, the refinery’s production environment is harsh, and factors such as high temperature, high pressure, corrosive gases, etc. will cause damage or interference to the liquid level measurement equipment; Third, the liquid level changes frequently, requiring rapid response from the measurement equipment. and the ability to measure accurately.

SKE's solution:

The SKE Oil Tank Radar Level Gauge is an efficient and stable measurement equipment designed to address these difficulties. It uses microwave principles for liquid level measurement and has the characteristics of non-contact, high precision, and strong anti-interference ability. In refinery applications, it can accurately measure the liquid level of various complex media without being affected by the properties of the medium; its rugged and durable design allows it to adapt to the harsh production environment of the refinery and operate stably for a long time; and it also has The characteristics of rapid response can timely reflect liquid level changes and provide strong support for the monitoring and control of the production process.

For sure, the application of oil tank radar level gauges also requires attention to some issues. First of all, when selecting the model, you should choose the appropriate model and specifications according to the specific application scenarios and needs; secondly, when installing, make sure there is no obstruction between the radar level gauge and the liquid being measured, so as not to affect the measurement accuracy; and maintain it regularly. Check the operating status of equipment, discover and solve problems in time, and ensure the accuracy and reliability of measurement data.

The application of oil tank radar level gauge in oil refinery liquid level measurement is of great significance. By overcoming the difficulties of liquid level measurement in refineries and improving measurement accuracy and stability, it provides a strong guarantee for safe production and optimal control of refineries.

Four tips to solve the inaccurate measurement of the radar level meter!

        1, first check whether there are parts damaged, such as by lightning, corrosion and thus damaged, if the probe and other parts are damaged and malfunction, is not normal measurement, this situation requires immediate replacement of damaged parts. If the inspection to determine the need for replacement, you can contact the manufacturer to provide replacement maintenance services.
       2, the second is the parameter setting error, once the parameter setting error occurs, and then accurate instrumentation, there will be measurement is not allowed, this problem can not be ignored, do not think that the district a parameter only, correctly set the parameters of the measurement results have a vital role, so once this kind of problem occurs, you need to re-adjustment and testing, can only be resolved.
       3, the third is the impact of poor working conditions, such as high temperature, low temperature, stirring, crystallization and foam, these phenomena will affect the accuracy of the radar level meter measurement, then you need to regularly maintain the radar level meter according to the situation, clean up the antenna and the antenna near the adherent, so as to ensure that the radar level meter electromagnetic wave can be effectively transmitted.
      4, the fourth is not installed correctly will also cause the radar level meter measurement inaccuracy, encountered this kind of problem must check the installation position, repeatedly measure the tank height, etc., to achieve precision, and then change the installation position can be solved.
