The KROHNE OPTIWAVE 1010 Radar Level Transmitter is a factory pre-configured FMCW radar level transmitter designed for the continuous level measurement of liquids in bypass chambers. It becomes a Magnetic bypass Level Indicator (BM 26 W1010) when welded to a bypass chamber, equipped with a float and an IP68-rated indication. For maximum safety, the device features a dual process seal system that permits the removal of the converter under process conditions.

The OPTIWAVE 1010 features temperatures ranges from -0 to 302°F (-40 to 150°C) and pressures from vacuum to 40 barg / 580 psig. The robust housing of the OPTIWAVE 1010 is made of either aluminum or stainless steel. More accurate than reed chain transmitters, the OPTIWAVE 1010 is a cost-effective solution for a range of industries, such as chemical, petrochemical, power, water and waste water or automotive.

Applications for the OPTIWAVE 1010 include:

  • Raw material storage
  • Water hammer arresters
  • Liquefied gas
  • Hydraulic oil
