The non-contact Rosemount TankRadar gauges generally perform more reliably than mechanical tank gauging sensors, such as float and tape gauges and servo gauges. Mechanical gauges are complicated devices, vulnerable to many failure modes. They also require inspection and service on a regular basis.
Radar gauges eliminate the failure occurrences associated with mechanical components. Therefore many tank gauging professionals, customers and other specialists agree that modern radar gauges may be more reliable and efficient than mechanical gauges.
This also means benefits in terms of safety. Reliable TankRadar gauges can complement a traditional High-High switch thereby introducing redundancy into the safety system. In this way, the safety level of your plant is improved.
