U/G Ore Bin Level Measurement!

260' high ore bin is no trouble for the FMR250 Solids Radar level transmitter.


FMR250 Parabolic level transmitter focuses the radar beam into a tight, narrow beam allowing it to be used in underground ore bins.


Antenna & electronics are covered with plastic bags to avoid dust buildup before inserting into the stand pipe.

 The key advantages of using parabolic radar for ore pass and rock bins:

  • accurate measurement can be made even while filling
  • can measure in extremely high dusty environments
  • non-contact measurement
  • quick set-up
  • measurements are not affected by changes in moisture or temperature
  • measurement is not affected by background noise
  • narrow beam angle which allows long measuring range in ore pass or rock bins
  • zero maintenance

Excellent echo signal even at 200' depths. FMR250 Parabolic Radar Level Transmitter.

Reliable and stable measurement even while bin is being filled.
