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.

Plastic pellets to stadium seating: How 80 GHz radar level measurement guarantees seating for millions

30. January
The VEGAPULS 69 radar sensor provides accurate continuous level measurements from the top of the silo holding plastic pellets.
The latest 80 GHz radar level measurement sensors can measure materials with low reflective qualities like plastic pellets and flakes. The VEGAPULS 69 uses a higher frequency and smarter, more sensitive electronics to make level measurements in silos that weren’t previously possible.

New compact radar level instruments defy buildup to deliver reliable measurement

Even in applications with heavy buildup, radar is the better ultrasonic.

80 GHz radar vs. ultrasonic: Non-contact Level Measurement Technology Comparison

04. November 2019
radar vs ultrasonic
When it comes to non-contact continuous level measurement, radar and ultrasonic are two of the most common technologies used. Both technologies are used for similar applications across industries, and both types of devices use similar principles to make a level measurement. However, each technology has varying degrees of success in different applications. This paper will compare and contrast 80 GHz radar sensors with ultrasonic transmitters for liquid and solid level measurements.

Preventing oil storage tank overfill hazards with a more reliable high level alarm: Application of the Month

01. November 2019
overfill 3
Floating roof tanks are widely used at refineries everywhere, and spills in these vessels are not only costly, they’re also an environmental hazard. Fortunately, mitigating overfill risks is simplified by using a radar level sensor with an electronic output connected to a high level alarm, and in this application, the VEGAPULS 64 is the ideal radar sensor for the job.
