Ametek Drexelbrook’s DR 2000 guided wave radar level meter and the DR 5200 open air radar level meter are radar-based level measurement solutions designed to provide increased installation flexibility along with accuracy and reliability. Each device is calibrated for a wide variety of applications with housing options available in aluminum or stainless steel. 

The DR 2000 is a 2-wire, loop-powered guided wave radar level meter designed for applications like storage tanks, process vessels, open channel flow, water and wastewater facilities. The meter’s modular design allows it to be installed and operate from a tank roof, in a recessed space or in a building or structure with a low roof deign. A remote version is available that features a separate converter with display, which can be mounted and operated from as much as 100 meters away from the sensor location. The unit is designed according to IEC 61508 for Safety Integrity Level 2 (issued by an independent certifying body).

The DR 5200 is a 2-wire open air radar level meter that utilizes frequency modulated continuous wave technology and it offers a separate signal converter with display and quick coupling system. It also is SIL2 compliant to IEC 61508 for safety-related systems. Gasket-free PP and PTFE wave horn antennas ensure accurate level measurement of corrosive media. The device is suitable for all industries, especially chemical, oil and gas, wastewater, metals, minerals and mining.
