KROHNE ups the measuring ante in bulk storage applications with OPTIWAVE 6500C

KROHNE, a manufacturer and supplier of solutions in industrial process instrumentation, has highlighted its OPTIWAVE 6500C, a radar level transmitter for powders and dusty atmospheres.

KROHNE’s OPTIWAVE 6500C delivers continuous high measurement in silos, hoppers and containers.

It is an optimal product for bulk storage in many industries including mining and minerals. The radar offers several advanced technological features, including an 80 GHz (FMCW) band width radar and a 2.75 in lens antenna, making it ideal for environments with low dielectric media, the company says. With a measuring range extending over 328 ft (100 m), the OPTIWAVE 6500C is a perfect choice for uneven surfaces or tanks with obstacles, it added.

Other advanced features include PEEK Lens antennas with both concave and convex lenses for distances up to 100 m and a large backlit LCD screen with a four-button keypad, ensuring flexibility for different radar usage.

“While alternative solar radars are cheap and low-performing, the OPTIWAVE 6500C guarantees perfect results and a guaranteed three-year warranty, establishing itself as the most cost-efficient and productive option,” the company said.
