Burkert Fluid Control Systems introduces the Type 8178 ultrasonic level transmitters (non-contact), designed for continuous level measurement in open or closed vessels. These transmitters are suitable both for liquids and for solids, in virtually all industries, particularly in water and waste water management.

The following are some of the specifications of the Type 8178 ultrasonic level transmitters

  • Display LCD in full dot matrix
  • Process fitting: Mounting strap
  • Max. torque mounting boss: 25 Nm
  • Electrical connections: Cable gland M20 x 1.5
  • Measuring type: Distance between lower edge of the transducer and product surface
  • Dead zone: 0.6 m
  • Measuring range: 0.6 up to 15 m (for liquids); 0.6 up to 7 m (for solids)
  • Process temperature: -40 up to 80°C (-40 to 176°F)
  • Vessel pressure: 0 bar (0 PSI) (0 kPa) - because no sealing possibility
  • Vibration resistance: Mechanical vibrations with 4.g and 5...100 Hz
  • Temperature coefficient:  0.06%/10K (Average temperature coefficient of the zero signal -temperature error)
  • Resolution max.: 1 mm
  • Ultrasonic frequency: 35 kHz
  • Interval: > 2 s (dependent on the parameter adjustment)
  • Beam angle at - 3 db:  6 degrees
  • Adjustment time1): > 3 s (dependent on the parameter adjustment)
  • Accuracy:  < 0.2% or ± 6 mm (see diagram)
