Level Measurement for the Process Industry | Overview

Berthold Technologies - the inventor of contactless level measurement


Level MeasurementLevel Measurement Level measurement or the detection of levels or limit levels in the process industry is fundamental  to ensure safe and high quality production and logistics processes. Applications are most frequently carried out on liquids and solids in process tanks, storage tanks or silos.

However, there are requirements in which level measurements are not feasible or attainable with conventional measurement technology due to the extreme boundary conditions or only possible with very high installation or maintenance costs. This is applicable, for example, in environments with high pressure or high temperatures or with aggressive or abrasive media.

These difficult cases can only be solved with the help of radiometric measurement technology, which has been tried and tested for more than 65 years - a technology invented by Berthold. Externally applied gamma radiation penetrates thereby the measuring vessel. This is weakened depending on the vessel level. A detector located on the opposite side of the vessel measures the incoming radiation and can determine the level very accurately from the radiation attenuation. This level value is displayed either directly on site or integrated in a PLC or process control system.
