1.2.1 Transmitter/Antenna
Ground
1. The device is manufactured as one unit that includes the
transmitter and antenna.
2. Remove any protective material from the antenna before
installing.
3. Install the transmitter/antenna into the process connection.
If threaded, tighten securely by hand using the housing for
grip. Ensure there is no cross-threading and do not over
tighten as this may cause damage to the plastic threads.
4. Adjust the beam position by turning the internal launcher
adjustment (Figure 2). The internal launcher adjustment is
numbered 1-18 that equates to 10-180 degrees of adjustment; 9 is the midpoint. The polarization pattern is parallel
to the transmitter display when the adjustment mechanism
is in the #11 position (factory default). Each index number
represents 10 degrees of rotation. After positioning the
transmitter display, the launcher should be adjusted so the
polarization pattern is parallel to a line tangent to the nearest tank wall (Figure 3). Do not optimize the Echo Strength
at one level in the vessel.
• Do not place insulating material around any part of the
Radar transmitter including the antenna process connection.

Figure 7 at left shows the maximum measuring range
(Distance) based on fundamental conditions of
Dielectric, Distance and Turbulence. Maximum distance is calculated as Tank Height + Sensor Offset. It
is measured from the Sensor Reference Point (bottom
of NPT thread, top of BSP thread or face of a flange).
If the liquid level is allowed onto the antenna, noise
and media build-up drastically decrease reliable measurement. Liquid should not be allowed closer than
380 mm (15"), BSP: 405 mm (16") from the bottom
of the antenna mounting threads (or face of hygienic
flange). The distance from the end of the antenna
varies depending on antenna chosen. See Figure 8.

2.3.3.3 Problematic Applications; GWR Alternative
•
•
•
•
58-610 Model R82 Radar Transmitter
Some application concerns can be problematic for Radar.
For these, Guided Wave Radar is recommended:
Extremely low dielectric media (εr<2.0)
Very weak reflections from the liquid surface, particularly
during turbulence, can cause poor performance.
Tanks heavily cluttered with false targets (mixers, pumps,
ladders, pipes, etc.)
During times of very low liquid levels of low dielectric
media, the metal tank bottom may be detected deteriorating performance.
11
• Foam can either absorb or reflect the microwave energy
depending upon the depth, dielectric, density and wall
thickness of the bubbles. Due to typical variations in the
amount (depth) of foam, it is impossible to quantify performance. It may be possible to receive most, some or
none of the transmitted energy.
• Extremely high liquid levels (Overflow) conditions when
liquid very near the antenna (above the Blocking Distance)
can cause erroneous readings and measurement failure.

Mounting
The R82 Radar transmitter can be mounted to a vessel
using a variety of process connections. Generally, either a
threaded or flanged connection is used.
2.4.1 Installing the Transmitter
•
•
•
•
Figure 10
Before installing, make sure:
Process temperature, pressure, dielectric, turbulence and
distance are within the antenna specifications for the
installation.
End of antenna is protected from bending or breaking.
Insulating material is not placed around any part of the
Radar transmitter including the antenna flange.
Transmitter is being mounted in the optimal location. See
following sections: Location, Beam Angle, Obstructions,
Nozzles, Stillwells, and Open Channel Flow for specific
information.
2.4.1.1 Location
Ideally, the Radar transmitter should be mounted providing an unobstructed signal path to the liquid surface where
it should illuminate (with microwave energy) the largest,
possible surface area. See Section 2.4.1.2, Beam Angle.
Unavoidable obstacles will produce reflections that must
be minimized during field configuration. Mount in a
location equal to 1⁄2 the radius of tank top. Do not mount
in center of vessel nor closer than 25 cm (10") from the
tank wall.

2.4.1.2 Beam Angle
Ideally, the beam pattern should illuminate the maximum
liquid surface with a minimum striking other objects in
the vessel including the tank wall.
Figure 11
12
58-610 Model R82 Radar Transmitter
2.4.1.3 Obstructions
Almost any object that falls within the beam pattern will
cause reflections that may be misinterpreted as a false liquid
level. Although Model R82 has a powerful Echo Rejection
routine, all possible precautions should be taken to minimize false target reflections with proper installation and
orientation. See Figure 12.
2.4.1.4 Nozzles
Improper installation in a nozzle creates “ringing” which
will adversely affect measurement. Two Antenna extension
lengths are offered to allow the R82 transmitter to work
reliably in a variety of nozzles.
The Minimum Blocking Distance of 380 mm (15") is
always measured from the bottom of the threads or face of
the flange. The related distance as measured from the end of
the antenna varies depending on the antenna extension
chosen. See Figure 13.
Figure 12
The narrow beam width of the 26 GHz, R82 does allow
mounting so that the antenna can be recessed inside the
nozzle. Optimally, the recessed dimension should never
exceed 2¥ the nozzle diameter (Schedule 40 maximum).
See Figure 13.
Avoiding Obstructions
NOTE: If the antenna is recessed in a nozzle it is mandatory that Echo
Rejection is run to eliminate any possibility of false reflections.
Maximum recess (m) is 2 x nozzle diameter (d) (schedule 40 maximum)

Figure 14
•
R82 Mounted in Stillwell (Bridle)
•
The R82 can be mounted in a stillwell but certain considerations should be given:
Metal stillwells only: 50 mm (2") Sched 40 max.
Diameter must be consistent throughout length; no reducers.
Stillwell length must cover complete range of measurement
(i.e., liquid must be in stillwell).
Welds should be smooth.
Vents: holes < 3 mm (0.125") diameter, slots < 3 mm
(0.125") width.
If an isolation valve is used, it must be a full port ball valve
with an I.D. equal to the pipe diameter.
Bridles/Bypass Installations: The launcher should be rotated
90° from process connections.
Configuration must include an entry for Stillwell I.D.
See Section 2.6.6.2, Item 34- Stillwell I.D.
2.4.1.6 Open Channel Flow Measurement
Model R82
Flow
For optimal accuracy, mount the transmitter a minimum of
75 cm (30") above the flow element (this is dependent on
type and size of the flow element). Consult factory for assistance on this dimension.
Install the Model R82 on the inflow side of the flume throat
or weir crest in the location defined by the manufacturer of
the primary measuring device. The unit should also be
aligned with the longitudinal axis of the flume or weir.
Parshall
Flume
Figure 15
Open Channel Flow Mounting
NOTE:
Proper position of the Model R82
should be per the recommendation of
the flume or weir manufacturer and
meeting minimum height recommendations. Mounting at least 75 cm (30")
above the top of the element will yield
best accuracy.

Open channel flow is performed by using the R82 to measure the level (Head) in a hydraulic structure. The hydraulic
structure is the primary measuring element, of which the
two most common types are weirs and flumes. Since the
primary element has a defined shape and dimensions, the
rate of flow through the flume or over the weir is related to
the liquid level (Head) at a specified measurement location.
The Model R82 is the secondary measuring device which
measures the height (Head) of the liquid in the flume or
weir. Open channel flow equations stored in the R82
firmware convert the measured Head into units of flow
(volume/time).

2.4.2 Installing the Transmitter
Launcher Adjustment
in #11 Position (Default)
Ground
Install the Transmitter with its integral antenna by threading
into the vessel. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN as this may
cause damage to the plastic threads.
• Do not place insulating material around any part of the
radar transmitter including the antenna flange.

Polarization Pattern
30 degrees: Rotate Launcher
Mechanism Clockwise (CW) 3 notches
The R82 transmitter utilizes a linearly polarized, microwave
beam that can be rotated to improve its performance.
Proper orientation can minimize unwanted reflections,
decrease sidewall reflections (multipath) and maximize
direct reflections from the liquid surface.
The internal launcher mechanism can be turned to optimize
performance. The launcher has index marks numbered
1–18 (representing 10–180 degrees). The polarization
pattern is parallel to the transmitter display when the
adjustment mechanism is in the #11 position (factory
default). Each index number represents 10 degrees of rotation. See Figures 16 and 17.
2.4.2.2 Launcher Orientation—Level Application
Ideally, the transmitter should be mounted half the radius
from the tank wall. In a typical vertical tank, the Launcher
should be adjusted so the polarization pattern is parallel to a
line tangent to the nearest tank wall. See Figure 17.
Rotate the internal Launcher adjustment to achieve the
correct Polarization position. Remember each notch on the
adjustment wheel is 10 degrees of rotation. See Figure 18.
∠30°
90 degrees: Rotate Launcher
Mechanism CW 9 notches
∠90°
For horizontal cylindrical vessels, aim beam down the long
axis of the vessel. Do not optimize the Echo Strength at one
level in the vessel.
A transmitter mounted within 25 cm (10") of a tank wall
may demand orientation adjustments to limit multipath
and optimize performance. See Section 2.4.2.4,
Poor Echo Strength.

2.4.2.3 Launcher Orientation — Flow Application
Orient the R82 transmitter so the Polarization pattern is
aimed directly down the throat of the flume or weir.
If conduit connections are oriented 90° to the flow, set the
Launcher Adjustment to #2.
2.4.2.4 Poor Echo Strength
Ground
Launcher
Adjustment
Poor Echo Strength has many potential causes. Following
are two initial areas for investigation.
Launcher Orientation: Initial launcher orientation is always
parallel to tangent of the tank circumference (see Sections
2.4.2.1 & 2.4.2.2). In tall vessels and when antenna is
mounted close to the tank wall, improvement in Echo
Strength may be attained by rotating the launcher to
90 degrees.
)+(
)-(
Figure 19
Internal Launcher Adjustment
Signal Loss: If the Level signal is lost repeatedly at a specific
point in the vessel, it is usually a symptom that multipath
(side-wall reflections) are causing cancellation by returning
to the transmitter exactly 180° out of phase with the Level
signal. Utilize the following procedure:
• Go to transmitter screen #5 which shows both Level and
Echo Strength.
• Bring the Level up (or down) to the exact point where the
signal is repeatedly lost. Monitor the Echo Strength this
point is being approached. The Echo Strength will degrade
to a low point before it begins to increase.
• At the poorest Echo Strength slowly rotate the launcher
1–2 notches. Allow the unit to stabilize for approximately
one minute. Repeat this process until the Echo Strength
is optimized.

Wiring
Wiring between the power supply and the Radar transmitter
should be made using 18–22 AWG shielded twisted pair
instrument cable. Within the transmitter enclosure, connections are made to the terminal strip and the ground connections. Trim excess wiring to minimize clutter, noise issues and
allow access to Launcher adjustment. See Figure 21. The
directions for wiring the Radar transmitter depend on the
application:
• General Purpose or Non-incendive (Cl I, Div. 2)
• Intrinsically Safe
2.5.1 General Purpose or Non-incendive (Cl I, Div. 2)
Figure 21
Wiring the Transmitter
Caution: The R82 Radar transmitter
operates at voltages of 16–36 VDC (GP)
and 16-28.6 VDC (IS). Higher voltage will
damage the transmitter.
NOTES:
• If sufficient supply voltage is suspect,
use the R82 Low Voltage check
(Section 2.6.6.1, #33: Test 4-20 Loop).
A general purpose installation does not have flammable
media present. Areas rated non-incendive (Cl I, Div. 2) have
flammable media present only under abnormal conditions.
No special electrical connections are required. If flammable
media is contained in the vessel, the transmitter must be
installed per Cl I, Div. 1 standards of area classification.
To install General Purpose or Non-incendive wiring:
1. Remove the cover to the wiring compartment of the transmitter. Install the conduit plug in the unused opening.
2. Install a conduit fitting and pull the supply wires.
3. Connect shield to an earth ground at power supply and
leave floating at the transmitter.
4. Connect an earth ground wire to the nearest green ground
screw per local electrical code (not shown in illustration).
5. Connect the positive supply wire to the (+) terminal and the
negative supply wire to the (-) terminal.
6. Seal conduit to prevent ingress of moisture.
7. Replace cover of the transmiter.
2.5.2 Intrinsically Safe
An intrinsically safe (IS) installation potentially has flammable media present. An approved IS barrier must be installed
in the non-hazardous (safe) area.

Configuring the Transmitter
The Radar transmitter comes factory-calibrated and can be
configured in minutes for specific applications.
Before configuring the transmitter, collect the operating
parameters information. Then, power-up the transmitter on
the bench and follow through the step-by-step procedures
for the menu-driven transmitter display. Information on
configuring the transmitter using a HART communicator is
given in Configuration Using HART (Section 2.7).
2.6.1 Operating Parameters
Some key information is needed to configure the Radar
transmitter. If necessary, complete the configuration information table in Section 1.1.2.
2.6.2 Setting Up for Shop Configuration
The Radar transmitter can be configured at a test bench by
connecting a 24 VDC power supply directly to the transmitter terminals. The connections are illustrated in the
accompanying diagrams. An optional digital multimeter is
shown if current measurements are desired.
When using a HART communicator for configuration, a
minimum 250 Ω line load resistance is required. See the
HART communicator manual for more information.

2.6.5 Password Protection (Default = 0)
The Radar transmitter is password protected to restrict
access to certain portions of the menu structure that affect
the operation of the system. The password can be changed
to any numerical value up to 255. The password is required
whenever configuration values are changed.
The default password installed in the transmitter at the
factory is 0 (password disabled). The last step in the configuration menu provides the option to enter a new password.
If 0 is entered as a password, the transmitter is no longer
password protected and any value in the menu can be
altered (except diagnostic values) without entering a confirming password.
NOTE: If the password is not known, the menu item New Password
(Section 2.6.6.1 Level Measurement Only, item #35; Section
2.6.6.2 Volume and Level, item #39; Section 2.6.6.3 Flow and
Level, item #41) displays an encrypted value representing the
present password. Call the factory with this encrypted value to
determine the actual password.

to antenna ringing. It is measured from the Sensor
Reference point. Default of 380 mm (15") minimum distance from the process connection to the maximum level.
Extend this value when necessary to block reflections
from objects close to the antenna. Output will be held
at value corresponding to Blocking Distance. Do not
allow liquid into the Blocking Distance as false readings
can result.
Level Offset defines an area at the bottom of the vessel
where reflections can not be measured effectively due to
angled bottoms, heating coils, reflections from flat metal
tank bottoms in low dielectric applications, etc. It is the
distance from the bottom of the tank to the lowest valid

Enter the Blocking Distance
Blocking Distance defines an area near the antenna
where reflections can not be measured effectively due
to antenna ringing. It is measured from the Sensor
Reference point. Default of 380 mm (15") minimum distance from the process connection to the maximum level.
Extend this value when necessary to block reflections
from objects close to the antenna. Output will be held
at value corresponding to Blocking Distance. Do not
allow liquid into the Blocking Distance as false readings
can result.
Enter the Level Offset
Level Offset defines an area at the bottom of the vessel
where reflections can not be measured effectively due to
angled bottoms, heating coils, reflections from flat metal
tank bottoms in low dielectric applications, etc. It is the
distance from the bottom of the tank to the lowest valid
level reading. Level reading will never be lower than
Level Offset value.

60", 72", 96", 120" and 144". Palmer-Bwls (PalmerBowlus) flume sizes of 4", 6", 8", 10", 12", 15", 18", 21",
24", 27" and 30". V-notch weir sizes of 22.5°, 30°, 45°,
60°, 90° and 120°. Rect with Ends (Rectangular Weir with
End Contractions), Rect w/o Ends (Rectangular Weir
without End Contractions), and Cipoletti weir.
Crest Length
The Crest Length screen only appears when the chosen
Flow Element is Cipoletti or one of the Rectangular weirs.
Input this length in the user-selected level units.
Reference Dist
The Reference Distance is measured from the bottom of
the antenna threads to the point of zero flow in the weir
or flume. This must be measured very accurately in the
userselected level units. For some Flow Elements, such
as Parshall flumes, the Reference Dist is the same as the
Range value. Weirs and some other Flow Elements will
have a Reference Distance that is shorter than the Range
value.
Maximum Head
Maximum Head is the highest liquid level (Head) value in
the flume or weir before the flow equation is no longer
valid. The Maximum Head is expressed in the user
selected Level Units. The R82 will default to the largest
Maximum Head value that is allowed for any given flume
or weir. The Maximum Head value can be revised
depending on the value of the Reference Distance, or for
end user preference.
Maximum Flow
Maximum Flow is a read-only value that represents the
flow value corresponding to the Maximum Head value for
the flume or weir.
Low Flow Cutoff
The Low Flow Cutoff (in user-selected level units) will
force the calculated flow value to zero whenever the
Head is below this point. This parameter will have a
default and minimum value of zero.

Total R Mode allows the user to enable and disable the
resettable totalizer. The default mode is disabled.
The Totalizer R Reset screen allows the user to reset the
total flow and elapsed time of Totalizer R to zero
(Totalizer NR is non-resettable). Since this action will
permanently lose this data, a second chance is provided
with an “Are you sure?” screen.
Generic Eqn Factors Generic Equation is a discharge
flow equation in the form of Q = K(L-CH)Hn, where Q =
flow (Cu Ft/Second), H = Head (Feet), K = a constant,
and L, C and n are user input factors that depend on
which Flow Element is being used. Make sure the flow
equation is in the form of Q = K(L-CH)Hn, and proceed to
enter the values of K,L,C,H and n.
Generic Equation Example (using equation for an 8' rectangular weir w/ end contractions)
Q = Cubic Ft/Second flow rate
L = 8' (weir crest length in feet)
H = Head value
K = 3.33 for Cubic Ft/Second units
C = 0.2 (constant)
n = 1.5 as an exponent
Q = K(L-CH)H
n
Using the factors above, the equation becomes:
Q = 3.33 (8-0.2H) H1.5
The discharge flow value for a Head value of 3 feet becomes 128.04 Cubic Ft/Second. If
GPM was selected for the Flow Units, the R82 Measured Values screen would display this
value converted to 57,490 GPM.

Select the Safe Zone Fault
Safe Zone is a user-defined area just below the Blocking
Distance. Set this Fault if it necessary to ensure safe, reliable
high-level readings in critical applications. Choices are None,
3.6 mA, 22 mA, Latch 3.6 or Latch 22. If Latch 3.6 or Latch 22 is
chosen, the loop current will remain in alarm until it it cleared by
customer in SZ Latch below (refer to #34).
Enter a Safe Zone Distance
Enter a distance value that develops a zone just below the
Blocking Distance. At this point the unit will report a Safety Zone
Fault (refer to #32) if the level rises into this area.
Clear Safe Zone Alarm
Clear a latched Safe Zone alarm.
Enter a Trim Level value
Trim Level is an offset value to be used to force the transmitter
to output the proper Level. This should only be used after Tank
Height and Sensor Offset have been confirmed as correct.

Configuration Using HART®
A HART® (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer)
remote unit, such as a HART communicator, can be used to
provide a communication link to the Model R82 transmitter. When connected to the control loop, the same system
measurement readings shown on the transmitter are shown
on the communicator. In addition, the communicator can
be used to configure the transmitter.
To confirm HART hand-held communications, attach unit
per Section 2.7.1. If communicator reads GENERIC on
first two lines, the HART hand-held does not contain the
current DDs (device description) for the Model R82 Radar
transmitter. Contact your local HART Service Center and
specify a MAGNETROL Model R82 device descriptor.

HART Configuration
A HART communicator can be operated from a remote
location by connecting it to a remote junction or by connecting it directly to the terminal block in the electronics
housing of the ModelR82 transmitter.
HART uses the Bell 202 frequency shift key technique of
high-frequency digital signals. It operates on the 4–20 mA
loop and requires 250 Ω load resistance. A typical connection between a communicator and the Model R82 transmitter is illustrated.
2.7.2 Display Menu
A typical communicator display is an 8-line by 21-character
LCD. When connected, the top line of each menu displays
the model (Model R82) and its tag number or address.
Usually the bottom line of each menu is reserved for software-defined function keys (F1–F4). For detailed operating
information, refer to the instruction manual provided with
the HART communicator.
The Model R82 transmitter online menu trees are shown in
the following illustration. Open the menu by pressing the
alphanumeric key 1, Device Setup, to display the secondlevel menu.

3.0 Reference Information
This section presents an overview of the operation of the
Model R82 Radar Level Transmitter, information on troubleshooting, common problems, listings of agency
approvals, lists of replacement and recommended spare
parts, and detailed physical, functional and performance
specifications.
3.1 Description
The Model R82 is a two-wire, 24 VDC level transmitter
based on the concept of pulse burst radar operating at
26 GHz. The electronics are mounted in a metal or plastic
housing with an innovative, internal launcher orientation
mechanism.
3.2 Theory of Operation
3.2.1 Pulse Burst Radar
Pulse
Pulse Burst
The Model R82 is a top-mounted, downward-looking pulse
burst radar operating at 26 GHz. Unlike true pulse devices
that transmit a single, sharp (fast rise-time) waveform of
wide-band energy, the R82 emits short bursts of 26 GHz
energy and measures the transit time of the signal reflected
off the liquid surface. Distance is calculated utilizing the
equation Distance = C ¥ Transit time/2, then developing
the Level value by factoring in Tank Height and Sensor
Offset information. The exact reference point for distance
and level calculations is the Sensor Reference Point—bottom
of an NPT thread, top of a BSP thread or face of a flange.

58-610 Model R82 Radar Transmitter
The exact level measurement is extracted from false echo
reflections and other background noise via the use of
sophisticated signal processing. The new R82 circuitry is
extremely energy efficient so no duty cycling is necessary to
accomplish effective measurement. For this reason, the R82
can track high rates of change that were heretofore impossible with existing loop-powered radar transmitters.

3.2.2 Equivalent Time Sampling
ETS, or Equivalent Time Sampling, is used to measure the
high speed, low power EM (electromagnetic) energy. ETS is
a critical key in the application of Radar to vessel level
measurement technology. The high speed electromagnetic
energy (1 ft/nS) is difficult to measure over short distances
and at the resolution required in the process industry. ETS
captures the EM signals in real time (nanoseconds) and
reconstructs them in equivalent time (milliseconds), which
is much easier to measure with today’s technology.
ETS is accomplished by scanning the tank to collect thousands of samples. The round-trip event on a 12.3 m
(40-foot) tank takes only 82 nanoseconds in real time. After
it is reconstructed in equivalent time it measures 135 milliseconds.

Troubleshooting
The Model R82 transmitter is designed and engineered for
trouble-free operation over a wide range of operating
conditions. Common transmitter problems are discussed
in terms of their symptoms and recommended corrective
actions.
WARNING! Explosion hazard. Do not remove covers unless power
has been switched off or the area is known to be nonhazardous.
Use of the included PACTware™ PC program is highly
recommended and invaluable for troubleshooting and
advanced calibration. A HART RS232 or USB modem
(purchased separately) is required. See MAGNETROL
PACTware™ bulletin 59-101.

3.3.2 Error Messages
The Model R82 Radar transmitter utilizes a 3-section
hierarchy for reporting diagnostic conditions: FAULTS,
WARNINGS, and INFORMATION. FAULTS and
WARNINGS will be shown in the Home screen when the
message is active. A chronological listing of messages can be
viewed in the HISTORY screen.
FAULT: The highest level in the hierarchy of diagnostics
annunciating a defect or failure in circuitry or software
that precludes reliable measurement. The current (mA)
value unit defaults to 3.6, 22, or HOLD and the Home
screen will freeze showing the highest priority Fault.
A chronological listing of messages can be viewed in the
HISTORY screen.
WARNING (MESSAGE): The second level in the hierarchy of Diagnostics annunciating conditions that are not
fatal but may affect measurement. The highest priority
Warning will be placed on the main (rotating) screen when
a Warning is detected but will not affect output current.
A chronological listing of messages can be viewed in the
HISTORY screen.
INFORMATION (MESSAGE): The lowest level in the
hierarchy of diagnostic conditions providing operational
factors that are not critical to measurement. A chronological
listing of messages can be viewed in the HISTORY screen.

SERVICE POLICY
Owners of Magnetrol products may request the return of a control; or, any part of a control for complete rebuilding or
replacement. They will be rebuilt or replaced promptly. Magnetrol International will repair or replace the control, at no cost to
the purchaser, (or owner) other than transportation cost if:
a. Returned within the warranty period; and,
b. The factory inspection finds the cause of the malfunction to be defective material or workmanship.
If the trouble is the result of conditions beyond our control; or, is NOT covered by the warranty, there will be charges for labour
and the parts required to rebuild or replace the equipment.
In some cases, it may be expedient to ship replacement parts; or, in extreme cases a complete new control, to replace the
original equipment before it is returned. If this is desired, notify the factory of both the model and serial numbers of the
control to be replaced. In such cases, credit for the materials returned, will be determined on the basis of the applicability of
our warranty.
No claims for misapplication, labour, direct or consequential damage will be allowed.
RETURNED MATERIAL PROCEDURE
So that we may efficiently process any materials that are returned, it is essential that a “Return Material Authorisation” (RMA)
form will be obtained from the factory. It is mandatory that this form will be attached to each material returned. This form is
available through Magnetrol’s local representative or by contacting the factory. Please supply the following information:
1. Purchaser Name
2. Description of Material
3. Serial Number and Ref Number
4. Desired Action
5. Reason for Return
6. Process details
Any unit that was used in a process must be properly cleaned in accordance with the proper health and safety standards
applicable by the owner, before it is returned to the factory.
A material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) must be attached at the outside of the transport crate or box.
All shipments returned to the factory must be by prepaid transportation. Magnetrol will not accept collect shipments.
