E+H Levelflex FMP57 Guided Radar Transmitter

Levelflex FMP57 is the sensor for the highest demands in bulk solids and best suited for measurements in high silos, bunkers or stockpiles. Providing rope probes up to a length of 45m the FMP57 is also suited to measurements in high silos. Levelflex FMP57 guided radar is used for continuous level measurement in powdery to granular bulk solids. Dust, filling noises, temperature layers and gas layers do not affect the measurement.

  • Reliable measurement even for changing product and process conditions
  • HistoROM data management concept for fast and easy commissioning, maintenance and diagnostics
