Which radar level technology is best for tank gauging in custody transfer applications, FMCW or Time of Flight?
In many applications, higher-accuracy measurements are required to protect the customer from over-billing and the supplier from under-billing. Common products requiring this level of accuracy are typically oils, fuels, edible oils, and alcohols. In the oil & gas industry, this requires a system called automatic tank gauging (ATG) as defined by the American Petroleum Institute (API) standards.
