 Advantages of radar methods for monitoring the filling level in technological tank, especially in case of aggressive environment are marked. Technical characteristics of the introduced level gage of 8-mm wave range, applied in systems with a number of tanks, are resulted. In the paper introduction of radar level gages at several power plants is mentioned. Perspective modifications of level gages with essentially lowered price and application of new programs for microprocessors of digital signal processing are discussed.
