Two companies based in the U.S. northeast, Krohne and Drexelbrook, have formed a partnership to provide level detection equipment to the milling and grain industry.
The companies in March announced that Drexelbrook, a Horsham, Pennsylvania-based supplier of ultrasonic and radio frequency measurement products, will provide line-powered and loop-powered airborne and sensor-guided level gauges that incorporate Krohne's radar technology. Krohne is based in Peabody.
Radar and TDR are quickly becoming preferred level measurement technologies, Krohne said, because of its accuracy, reliability and durability.
The Drexelbrook instruments will utilize frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) technology. FMCW radar continuously measures a mixed differential frequency, rather than discrete periods of time, Krohne said.
"Partnering with Drexelbrook is a win-win situation for all concerned," said Jack Evans, Krohne president and c.e.o. "Both Drexelbrook and Krohne customers benefit from having the best radar technology available in the industry."
