①Reference Plane

②Center of Vessel or Symmetrical axis

▶ The best mounting position for a conical vessel with flat top is the center of its top, as the effective measurement can reach the bottom of vessel.

①Correct

②Wrong



▶ If there is obstacle it the areawhere the microwave covers, such as ladder, limit switch, heating devices, support .etc which will lead to a wrong measuring, wave guide is required.


▶ If there are obstacles in the tank which can affect the measuring result, reflector is required.

Note: the diameter of ventilation hole is 5~10mm.

The diameter of wave guide is minimum 50mm, and the internal of the pipe should be smooth.

Suitable for liquids with good fluidity, not good for viscous liquids.



▶ Connection Pipe requirement:Antenna minimum length into tank is 10mm
