Tank Seal For Guided Wave Radar Level Measurement---Part One

Tank seal for guided wave radar level measurement---Part one


A microwave level gauge for measuring a level of a process material in a tank includes a ceramic seal and a microwave conductor. The ceramic seal is disposed adjacent to an opening in the tank and adapted to isolate circuitry from the process material. The microwave conductor is electrically coupled to the circuitry and extends through the hermetic seal and into the process material in the tank. The ceramic seal and an isolating adapter cooperate to isolate the microwave conductor from the process fluid and from external forces.


Level gauges are generally used in the process control industry to measure the level of material contained in a tank. As used herein, the term “tank” refers to a container, receptacle, vessel or other device for holding gases, liquids or solids. Radar level gauges are often used to measure process fluids or process solid levels in tanks, where the process materials range from benign materials to severely corrosive or abrasive compounds.


One type of level gauge for measuring a level of material in a tank is called a microwave level gauge. Microwaves are high frequency, short wavelength, electromagnetic waves. Microwaves, because of their short wavelengths, tend to travel in straight lines. This property gives rise to their application in radar, where objects are detected by the reflection of microwaves.


Generally, microwave or radar level gauges transmit an electromagnetic pulse into the materials contained within the tank, and measure the level of the process materials using the reflected pulse. As used herein, the term “microwave” refers to a high-frequency electromagnetic wave. The term “microwave pulse” refers to a microwave signal of short duration that is transmitted on a microwave antenna or conductor. The terms “microwave antenna” and “microwave conductor”, as used herein, refer to a conductive structure specifically designed to couple high-frequency electromagnetic energy (or to radiate electromagnetic energy). Typically, the microwave antenna or microwave conductor can both transmit and receive electromagnetic energy.
