The gamma source emits radiation which is attenuated as it penetrates the container wall and the medium. On the opposite side of the container, a detector converts the radiation received into an electric signal. Different interfaces absorb the radiation differently. If the transmitter has been calibrated to the media by wet calibration once, a correlation to the measurement of the interface results automatically, unaffected by process temperature and pressure.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″ css=”.vc_custom_1492661658202{background-color: rgba(171,214,234,0.3) !important;*background-color: rgb(171,214,234) !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Guided radar

As the pulses impact the medium surface, only part of the sending pulse is reflected. The other part penetrates the medium. As the signal enters the lower medium with a higher dielectric constant (dc) it is reflected once more. Taking the delayed Time-of-Flight of the pulse through the upper medium into consideration the distance to the interface is determined in addition. Applications up to 450 °C /400 bar.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″ css=”.vc_custom_1492661669715{background-color: rgba(171,214,234,0.3) !important;*background-color: rgb(171,214,234) !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}”][vc_column_text]


The name of the innovation in interface measurement is FMP55 Multiparameter. This instrument combines the advantages of the capacitance and guided radar measuring principles. Emulsion layers may cause signal losses in interface detection in guided radar measurements. Only Levelflex FMP55 Multiparameter can guarantee safe measured values for both the interface and the overall level with this unique, redundant measuring system. Applications up to 200 °C /40 bar.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″ css=”.vc_custom_1492661680933{background-color: rgba(171,214,234,0.3) !important;*background-color: rgb(171,214,234) !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}”][vc_column_text]


Media with a small dielectric constant (dc) cause very small changes of the capacitance value. Media with a high dc produce large capacitance changes. In many interface applications, the medium with the smaller dc value is on top, e.g. in hydrocarbon on water. The upper medium merely provides a minimum contribution to the overall capacitance value – the issued level thus only refers to the water level (the interface). Applications up to 200 °C /100 bar.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner equal_height=”yes”][vc_column_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”Density and concentration” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left|color:%23bf0033″ google_fonts=”font_family:Roboto%20Slab%3A100%2C300%2Cregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner equal_height=”yes”][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1492661564334{background-color: rgba(171,214,234,0.3) !important;*background-color: rgb(171,214,234) !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Vibronic – Liquiphant

Large number of process connections to choose from. Suitable for hygienic applications. Units of density: norm density, °Brix, °Baumé, °Plato, % volume, concentration, etc. with 2D and 3D tables. Formula editor to calculate customer-specific units. Up to five Liquiphant density sensors can be connected to the density computer FML621. Direct installation in tanks and pipes.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1492661589773{background-color: rgba(171,214,234,0.3) !important;*background-color: rgb(171,214,234) !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Coriolis – Promass

Maximum process dependability, because density, temperature and mass flow are all measured simultaneously. Approval for custody-transfer applications. No maintenance necessary. Units of density: standard density, standard volume flow and totalizing, % mass, % volume, alcohol tables (for mass and volume), target flow and carrier flow, °Brix, °Plato, °Baumé, °API, etc. Direct measurement in the pipe.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1492661632424{background-color: rgba(171,214,234,0.3) !important;*background-color: rgb(171,214,234) !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}”][vc_column_text]

Radiometric – Gammapilot

Straightforward retrofitting without process interruption; the pipes do not have to be opened. No maintenance necessary.  Units of density: g/cm3, g/l,  lb/gal, concentration, % mass,  °Brix, °Baumé, °API, etc. Installation from outside through the pipe, in the bypass or tank.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
