A couple years ago, Siemens published a great handbook on using radar to measure solids levels, but the $60 price tag limited its readership.
You can now download the book for free as an electronic epub file formatted for electronic readers, which in my case, is the Firefox browser on my laptop. It could be any browser (Internet Explorer or Chrome), or presumably any electronic book reader.
It looks just like the 120 page book. (But, it’s free!)
If you’ve wondered about upgrading from manual, point level or ultrasonic level measurements on your solids bins, this is well-written tutorial on the benefits of radar and it’s the right price.
Siemens radar technology has the cure for your level headaches. Reliable liquid and bulk solid level measurements, unaffected by steam and vapor.
If you’re having difficulty opening the epub file, you might need install a free epub reader add-on for your browser.
When I did a Google search for “epub reader,” I found the following add on application for Firefox, the web browser I use.
Once you’ve installed the add-on, you should be able to open and read the downloaded epub file.
