How radar made the CIP process for butter so much better

26. October
Large day tanks are used to fill the 55-gallon drums. Chemical level is tracked with a VEGAPULS C 11 radar sensor.
A major dairy, known for its butter, automated the liquid level measurement of CIP chemicals using VEGAPULS radar level sensors.

Steam boiler drum level measurement technology comparison: Differential pressure vs. guided wave radar

22. September
Two guided wave radars provide redundant level measurements for added safety.
Optimizing the steam drum requires an accurate and reliable water level measurement. This article compares the two most commonly used technologies: differential pressure and guided wave radar.

How three municipalities are changing the game with better level measurement technology
