Level limit detection (1)
A gamma radiation source and a Gammapilot M are mounted on opposite sides of the vessel at the height of the desired level limit. The Gammapilot M converts the received radiation intensity into a percentage. “0%” means that the radiation path is completely free, i.e. the level is below the limit. “100%” means that the radiation path is completely covered, i.e. the level is above the limit.
Continuous level measurement (2)
A gamma radiation source and a Gammapilot M are mounted on opposite sides of the vessel. The Gammapilot M calculates the level (percentage) from the radiation intensity. Detectors of different lengths are available to adapt the system to the measuring range. Also, multiple detectors can be interconnected (cascading).
Interface measurement (3)
A gamma radiation source and a Gammapilot M are mounted on opposite sides of the vessel in a height such that both liquids are irradiated. The radiation source may also be mounted inside the vessel. The Gammapilot M calculates the position of the interface layer from the intensity of the received radiation. Its value is between 0% (lowest possible position) and 100% (highest possible position).
Density or concentration measurement (4)
A gamma radiation source and a Gammapilot M are mounted on opposite sides of a measuring tube. The Gammapilot M calculates the density or concentration of the medium from the intensity of the received radiation. The unit can be freely selected. If an additional temperature sensor (5) is connected, the Gammapilot M accounts for the thermal expansion of the medium. That means, it does not output the measured density directly. Instead it calculates the density which the medium would have at a certain standard temperature defined by the user. Furthermore, the density signal of the Gammapilot M can be combined with the signal of a volume flow meter (6), e.g. Promag 55S. From these two signals it is possible to calculate the mass flow.
