Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitters

Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitters

A guided wave radar transmitter is a type of radar level instrument used for measuring the level of liquids, powders, and other granular materials in a storage tank or process vessel. It is called a "guided wave" radar because it uses a probe or antenna to transmit and receive microwave signals that travel along a guided path, such as a coaxial cable or a metal rod, to the surface of the material being measured.

In industrial process control, a guided wave radar transmitter is typically used to continuously monitor the level of a material in a tank or vessel and provide feedback to the process control system. This information is used to regulate the flow of material into and out of the vessel, maintain a desired level, or trigger an alarm if the level exceeds a predetermined limit.

Guided wave radar transmitters are known for their reliability, accuracy, and ability to operate in harsh environments. They are commonly used in a wide range of industries, including oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and power generation.

Guided wave radar level transmitters are suitable for use in a wide range of industrial manufacturing sectors, including:
  • Oil and gas: Guided wave radar transmitters are commonly used in the oil and gas industry to measure the level of liquids and solids in storage tanks, process vessels, and pipelines.
  • Chemical: In the chemical industry, guided wave radar transmitters are used to measure the level of corrosive liquids and hazardous materials in storage tanks and process vessels.
  • Pharmaceutical: Guided wave radar transmitters are often used in the pharmaceutical industry to measure the level of liquids, powders, and granular materials in tanks, vessels, and hoppers.
  • Food and beverage: These transmitters are used in the food and beverage industry to measure the level of liquids, powders, and granular materials in tanks, vessels, and hoppers.
  • Power generation: Guided wave radar transmitters are used in power generation plants to measure the level of liquids, such as water and oil, in storage tanks and process vessels.
  • Other sectors: Guided wave radar transmitters are also used in other industrial sectors, such as water and wastewater treatment, pulp and paper, and mining.

Basics of Gas Coolers


Sample gas coolers are devices used to cool gases or vapors that are being sampled in a process control application. They are typically used in chemical, petrochemical, and refining processes, as well as in power plants and other industrial settings.

Sample gas coolers work by using a heat exchange process to transfer heat from the gas or vapor being sampled to a cooling medium, such as water or air. This lowers the temperature of the gas or vapor, which can be important for several reasons.

First, cooling the gas or vapor can help prevent the sample from reacting with the sampling system or other process equipment. This is especially important when the gas or vapor is reactive or corrosive. Cooling the gas or vapor can also help to prevent it from condensing or solidifying, which can interfere with the accuracy of the sample.

Second, cooling the gas or vapor can help to improve the accuracy of the measurement being taken. Many process control instruments, such as gas chromatographs and mass spectrometers, are more accurate when the sample being measured is at a lower temperature. This is because the measurement can be more stable and consistent when the sample is at a lower temperature.

Overall, sample gas coolers are an important component of many process control systems, as they help to ensure the accuracy and stability of the measurements being taken, and help to protect process equipment from damage or corrosion.

The Perma Pure Baldwin Hybrid Sample Gas Cooler


The Perma Pure Hybrid Sample Gas Cooler combines the superior performance of Perma Pure’s Nafion™ based drying technology with the functionality of a traditional thermoelectric cooler. Powered by compressed air, this nonelectric cooler achieves dew points lower than 0ÂșC, helping prevent condensation-related problems. The patented mechanical design is ideal for locations with limited or no access to power or other areas where a nonelectric product may be desirable.

VBall Wafer Style Rotary Control Valves

VBall Wafer Style Rotary Control Valves

S&S V-100 VBall wafer-style rotary control valves utilize a standard ball with a triangular-shaped wedge. Available in 2-inch through 8-inch, they combine precision, accuracy, and control over a full 90° of rotation, functioning as an excellent valve for both throttling control and on/off service and with various actuators. The valve design closes against one of several available ball seals with a shearing action. The S&S V-100 is a flangeless design and allows the valve body to fit between two existing pipeline flanges. The flow characteristic is modified by equal percent, with regular (forward) flow into the convex side of the V-ball. Bi-directional flow is into either side of the V-Ball; TCM ball seal, metal ball seal, or flow ring. Typical actuators used are the pneumatic spring, diaphragm rotary actuator, and the pneumatic piston rotary actuator. Mounting of these actuators can be on the right-hand or left-hand side viewed from the forward flow inlet.

FLO-TITE Industrial Ball Valves

FLO-TITE Industrial Ball Valves

A ball valve is a type of flow control device that regulates the flow of liquid through it by using a hollow, perforated, pivoting ball. When the ball's hole aligns with the flow inlet, it is open, and when the valve handle pivots the ball 90 degrees to halt the flow, it is closed. The handle is parallel to the flow when the valve is open. It is perpendicular to the flow when closed, allowing easy visual confirmation of the valve's status. Ball valves are trustworthy, closing securely even after extended periods of inactivity, and durable, functioning well after numerous usage cycles. Because of these features, they are an excellent choice for shutdown and on-off applications. However, they lack the fine control of other valves in throttle applications.

Flo-Tite Inc. manufactures high-quality ball valves that adhere to internationally recognized standards and specifications, including ANSI/ASME/ISO/NACE and API. They maintain an inventory of standard valves in Carbon, Stainless, Steel, and Alloy 20.
