Guided wave radar level transmitters
Using radar frequencies, guided in a probe going into the monitored vessel, guided-wave radar level measurement provides continuous, reliable measurements with high accuracy. The radar wave being guided by the probe, the wave energy remains high which allows measurement even in harsh conditions.
The new LWT series of guided-wave radar builds on the legacy of the MT5000 series. Now with more powerful LevelExpertTM algorithm to efficiently track the level through the clutter, you do not need to be a radar expert to use this device: The expert is now inside the device!

Guided wave radar LWT300 series
Unlike traditional guided-wave radars that use device parameters requiring multiple adjustments, the LWT300 series of instruments does it for you.
The instrument uses LevelExpert™, a built-in intelligence to differentiate between the actual level and other false signals.
LWT300 series instruments cover a wide range of applications. They can meet your needs for applications up to 200 °C (392 °F) and 200 bars (2900 psi).
LWT310 vs LWT320
The LWT300 series is comprised of the LWT310 and LWT320. The LWT310 fits in a 19 mm (3/4 in) NPT interface while the LWT320 fitsin a 38 mm (1 1/2 in) NPT interface. Both are offered in flanged versions.
For solids applications, the LWT320 is recommended since it can withstand a higher pull force. The LWT320 is also useful forapplications having a 38 mm (1 1/2 in) NPT interface.
Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter MT5000 series
Pulses of microwave energy are directed to the product surface using a rigid rod or flexible cable type probe. This assembly has no moving parts and no loss of energy due to beam divergence. Multiple coupler and probe types are available to accommodate applications such as knock out drums, feed water heaters, production vessels and separators. 316L stainless steel is the standard probe material however materials such as Hastelloy C-276 and Monel are available for use in acidic or caustic services.
