Microwave Intensity Meter

04/10/2018 8:37 AM

I am looking for microwave intensity meter for industrial applications. This meter or the sensing probe will be installed in a pipe for water treatment system and should have data transfer capability to a PLC.

I have no luck in surfing for specific type of product and am not familiar how this testing equipment looks like.

Does someone know of this type of measurement equipment or manufacturers from where I can get the details.

Regards

<...I am looking for...> Actually, the thread is inviting others in the forum to do this on the original poster's behalf. Ordinarily such invitations are declined.

The words <...microwave intensity meter for...water...> are meaningless as water does not ordinarily emit microwaves as an indication of any of its properties. So the purpose of the instrument needs to be stated, and then a Google search (other internet search engines are available) can then be used to locate a (number of) supplier(s) of said equipment.

Posting e-mail addresses runs contrary to the forum Rules of Conduct, which are

and are routinely removed by the forum Admin; they are easily harvested by spambots, which quickly render them unusable.

I believe to measure microwaves, you would be looking for an RF meter.

Try here. If you don't see what you need, refine your search to "RF meters."

If you search for what you are trying to do you will probably have better luck. What are you trying to do - separate chemicals, remove water? Microwave-assisted heavy metal stabilization, pathogen inactivation, wastewater parameter analysis, wastewater treatment polymers synthesis?

Is this flow measurement, level measurement or is your fluid emitting microwave radiation?

If the RF equipment is tuned to the "correct" frequency (2.45 GHz) then most of the power will be absorbed by water and turned into heat. This is how a microwave oven works. I presume how hot the water gets is how it becomes sanitized. If I am correct then a thermal probe in the water maybe a better choice than measuring either the forward, or reverse RF power going to or reflected from this water.

<...If...>

The forum doesn't know, though, as the Original Poster seems to have evaporated.

They may only be sleeping right now. Give them some time to respond.

What's wrong with you? Don't you know we live and work in the 24-7-365 21stC where eating, sleeping and sex is superfluous?
