With radiometric measurement devices four measuring tasks (continuous level, point level, density and interface) can be solved, even under extreme process conditions. The radiation of the gamma source container is emitted almost unattenuated in one direction only, and is damped in all other directions. This guarantees highest safety for the personnel and a reliable measurement.
Radiometric measurement: Measuring Principle
The gamma source, a cesium or cobalt isotope, emits gamma radiation which is attenuated as it passes through materials. The measuring effect results from the absorption of radiation by the product to be measured which is caused by level changes. The measuring system consists of a source, a source container and a compact transmitter as a receiver.
