KING-GAGE LevelWAV microwave level transmitter provides continuous measurement of liquids in storage or processing vessels. Measurement is independent of dielectric constant, temperature, pressure and density variations. It is suitable to a broad range of level measurement and control applications including process conditions exhibiting visible vapors, foam, high temperature and/ or pressure. Level measurement is possible for highly corrosive materials (caustics, acids, solvents) and slurries.

LevelWAV Radar Level Transmitter

  1. 1. LevelWAV Radar Level Transmitter LevelWAV Model 3700 Effective: October 2015 Supplement 1100-44R ®® KING-GAGE Tank Level Transmitter KING-GAGE LevelWAV microwave level transmitter provides continuous measurement of liquids in storage or processing vessels. Measurement is independent of dielectric constant, temperature, pressure and density variations. It is suitable to a broad range of level measurement and control applications including process conditions exhibiting visible vapors, foam, high temperature and/ or pressure. Level measurement is possible for highly corrosive materials (caustics, acids, solvents) and slurries. LevelWAV utilizes advanced smart circuitry that automatically adjusts transmit energy and receiver gain to detect only the reflection from the measured material in the tank. 2-wire technology is easy to install and simplifies wiring requirements at the tank. Accurate and reliable operation with no moving parts or product contact eliminates the maintenance requirements of other level technologies. The compact size and mounting footprint makes tank top mounting of the LevelWAV radar transmitter suitable for even tight spaces. Radar level measurement is a practical solution in retrofit applications to replace failing or erratic level transmitters. Model offerings include sanitary configurations with stainless steel construction and food-grade PTFE antenna cover. ■ Advanced Smart Radar Improves Reliability ■ Compact Size for New or Retrofit Applications ■ Sanitary Configurations for Food & Dairy Applications Food/beverage • Chemical/Petrochemical • Energy Generation Pharmaceutical • Water/wastewater • Pulp & Paper • Marine Marsh Bellofram Group of Companies 8019 Ohio River Blvd. Newell, WV 26050 U.S.A. 304-387-1200 • 800-242-8871 • Fax: 304-387-4417 marshbellofram.com • king-gage.com Mountain States Engineering and Controls | 303-232-4100 | www.mnteng.com

LKe1100-44R.pdf Radar Level Transmitter Microwave pulses are emitted into free space where they are reflected by the liquid surface. Using the time of flight (ToF) principle, the returning echo is received at the device which determines the dis- tance to the liquid surface. Pulse burst radar does not require the greater power and more complex processing needed for frequency modulated con- tinuous wave radar transmitters. KING-GAGE Lev- elWAV radar level transmitters are more proficient at sorting through extraneous echoes and isolating the one generated by the actual level. Thus, they provide more accurate level measurement and reliability regardless of changes to specific gravity, dielectric constants* or conductivity of the liquid in the tank. Specifications Pulse burst non-contact radar transmitter Radar Frequency 6.3 GHz Process Connection 1-1/2” NPT or 2” NPT Housing Polished aluminum (standard) - with polypropylene antenna cover 316 stainless steel (optional - sanitary configuration includes PTFE antenna cover) Environmental Rating IP68 (NEMA 6) Temperature Ambient -40 °F to 140 °F (-40 to +60 °C) Process -40 °F to 176 °F (-40 to +80 °C) Pressure (Process) 5 bar (72 psi) Accuracy: ± 0.25% of range Maximum Measurement 0-15m (0-50 Ft.) Optional extended ranges - consult factory Output 2-wire analog 4-20mAdc Power Requirement 20-35 Vdc Maximum Load (Resistance) 33 ohms @35Vdc Pulse burst microwave (radar) energy is emitted down- ward and echos back from the liquid surface. Smart circuitry adjusts the transmit energy and receiver gain to distinguish level from any other reflected signals due to the tank structure.
