Point Level Switch

Gamma radiation emitted from a shielded source irradiates the vessel at the pre-defined level height. When the level reaches this limit, the radiation is significantly weakened or totally absorbed. The strong and sudden attenuation is measured by a detector at the opposite side of the vessel and an alarm is activated.

Temperature, pressure, dust, colour or chemical properties of the product have no influence on the outcome of the measurement. Consequently this results in the high reliability and low maintenance of the radiometric measurement systems, even under harsh operating and environmental conditions.
