Magnetrol Eclipse GWR Probe For Dirty Liquids

Magnetrol presents the first overfill-safe Eclipse Model 705 Guided Wave Radar (GWR) 7MG probe for dirty liquids, designed for heavy-duty use on hydrocarbons, with viscosity up to 10,000 cP. Once installed in the appropriate cage, the 7MG is a coaxial GWR probe with full mounting flexibility and mechanical overfill safety. The 7MG re-uses existing bypass cages, still-wells or bridles, making them the outer tube of a normal coaxial design.

The 7MG is adapted in design to meet the 2, 3 or 4in size of the cage it will be operating in. A special adaption piece assures the perfect impedance alignment with the characteristic impedance of the newly formed coax style GWR probe. Heavy-duty industries want fewer probe choices. These choices must provide safe solutions and reduce downtime during maintenance. The new Heavy-Duty Guided Wave Radar 7MG Probe meets this requirement.

The new offering includes heavy duty GWR probes that satisfy level, volume and interface measurement requirements with one single configuration, are designed to be used in clean and dirty liquids, and are mechanically overfill safe. Mechanical overfill safety allows measurement up to the process flange and guarantees no loss of signal by mechanical design instead of relying on software algorithms that some suppliers are forced to use.

10 years ago, the Magnetrol Eclipse 705 was the first two-wire loop-powered Guided Wave Radar transmitter (or device) on the market. Magnetrol has added new capabilities to Guided Wave Radar - a heavy-duty offering and the new caged 7MG probe.

The Eclipse 705 handles temperatures from -196 up to +430C, pressures from full vacuum up to 430 bar, liquefied gases with very low dielectrics up to water-based liquids, and saturated steam applications for high pressure steam drums, operating up to 155 bar.
