What are the difficulties and solutions of radar level meter measurement in high dust condition?

In the process of cement production, material level detection and material level alarm control play an important role from mining and crushing to storage and packing of finished cement. But because of the complex working conditions of cement plant, radar level meter has no small difficulty in measuring. Today, I would like to talk with you about specific difficulties and solutions.

First cement plant material for measurement in the dust under the condition of particularly large, especially some pneumatic feed bin, involves the kinds of materials, material particle size is differ, dielectric constant is different also, such as broken limestone, raw meal, clinker, fly ash, coal, cement, the level of the bunker, it is very difficult to accurately measure Especially fly ash bin with low dielectric constant.


Secondly, in cement production, material level measurement encountered another difficulty is strong dust interference, especially pneumatic conveying powder silo, dust flying when feeding, low visibility, laser level meter and high energy ultrasonic level meter can not be measured, although radar level meter at this time can receive part of the surface echo. But the echo signal was also weakened. In addition, due to the uneven surface of the radar echo is refracted, will also lead to the existence of radar echo; In addition, there are some conditions from the bottom to the bin inflation, so that the material surface loose, material level measurement is more difficult.

So what can be done about these difficulties? Under the condition of strong dust, on the one hand, the radar with high transmitting energy can be selected, on the other hand, the measurement software with continuous measurement algorithm of wave-loss waiting can be selected. When the radar encounters strong dust, it will not misjudge the measurement result even if the radar loses wave for a short time. After entering the state of continuous measurement algorithm, if the reflection wave of real material surface can be recognized within the set waiting time, the correct measurement value of material surface can be obtained. In the past, only a few foreign radars have this function. At present, there are also domestic radars with this function, and the practical application effect is very good.


In addition, some silos in cement plants are very high, such as homogenizing silos of  50cm. It takes time and energy to board high silos to debug radar, so it is recommended to choose HART handheld operators that can be debugged remotely in the central control room. In the central control room, the range and other basic parameters can be set, and the radar echo waveform can be observed, and the waveform can be used for remote diagnosis and debugging, greatly reducing the on-site work intensity of the staff, to avoid the risk of climbing operation.


The smart radar level gauge commonly used at present also has a function similar to "driving recorder", that is, when the material surface mutation occurs on the scene, it can capture the radar echo waveform at that time, which is very useful for debugging the silo under complex conditions.
