 Advantages of radio wave (radar) signaling devices in comparison with other known instruments for measuring discrete filling levels in technological tanks are presented. An example of realization of radar signal indicator for controlling the level of ash in ESP hoppers at coal-fired TPPs is described. The basic technical characteristics of the developed signal indicators are given. There is information on successful test of the created trial system at Ryazanskaya SDPP and introduction of signaling devices at Oskolskiy metallurgical industrial complex.
