Recently we’ve had a few level measurement-related posts–one on a refinery desalter vessel application and another on guided wave radar setup, calibration, and diagnostics. To continue on this theme, I’ve discovered an article, Determining the level best in radar measurement, on the U.K.-based website. Emerson’s Sarah Parker highlights contacting and non-contacting radar level measurement […]
