Extreme Measuring Tasks
Radiometric Level Measurement
Continuous level measurement and point level detection in liquids and bulk solids with Gamma devices
Radiometric level measurement with source container and Gammapilot provide reliable measurement values where other measuring principles can not be used anymore due to extreme process conditions or because of mechanical, geometric or construction conditions. Gamma devices are made for non-contact point level detection, continuous level, interface and density measurement in liquids, solids, suspensions or sludges.
With radiometric measurement devices, four measuring tasks (continuous level, point level, density, and interface) can be solved, even under extreme process conditions. The radiation of the gamma source container is emitted almost unattenuated in one direction only, and is damped in all other directions. This guarantees the highest safety for the personnel and reliable measurement.
Radiometric measurement: Measuring Principle
The gamma source, a cesium or cobalt isotope, emits gamma radiation which is attenuated as it passes through materials. The measuring effect results from the absorption of radiation by the product to be measured which is caused by level changes. The measuring system consists of a source, a source container, and a compact transmitter as a receiver.
