Ronan’s X96SI/R radiometric transmitter is claimed to be  ideal for difficult continuous level measurement applications in harsh process environments. The entire system mounts externally to the vessel or pipe to provide reliable and accurate measurement when other measurement techniques are not an option.

The X96SI/R, according to the supplier, is the first radiometric transmitter to be fully Ethernet capable, enabling configurations, software updates and data logging to be completed easily through the user’s PC using a standard Web browser. The X96SI/R includes a patented optical coupling that allows the transmitter and detector electronics assembly to be easily mounted to any detector configuration. The transmitter can also be remotely mounted in the field or control room. The X96SI/R is available in explosion proof, weather proof or stainless steel housings. The system is backward-compatible, enabling easy upgrades of existing systems to newer transmitter technology.

The complete X96SI/R radiometric measurement system can be installed and maintained while the process is running, without downtime, vessel modifications or risk of accidental release.
