Automating level measurements saves time and money

23. July
Operators previously checked the level in each silo manually.
The 80 GHz VEGAPULS 69 radar level sensor for solids accurately measures malts and grains in dozens of large silos at a large brewery outside of Mexico City.

VEGA measurement technology for the optimization of stone crushers

VEGA sensors measure level in a stone crushing machine
Sensors for monitoring and optimizing crusher machines: Reliable level measurement protects equipment, saves energy, and leads to higher product quality.

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.

Debottlenecking the throughput with VEGAPULS 69

12. December 2019
Radar level transmitter VEGAPULS 69 ensures efficiency in major iron ore mining operation for a more reliable material flow and a better process coordination.

Measuring density with a non-contact measurement: Application of the month

09. December 2019
A MiniTrac 31 density sensor is mounted on a vertical pipe to monitor the lime and asphalt mixture flowing upward. The measurement is made without interfering with the process or process material.
Asphalt shingles are made of fiberglass, asphalt, and ceramic-coated minerals. Fiberglass mats are run through a machine, coating the mats in asphalt multiple times. Near the end of the process, the ceramic-coated minerals are added for protection and color. The ratio of these two ingredients changes the asphalt mixture’s adhesive properties and its density, so a density measurement is critical for monitoring the adhesive properties of the mixture as it’s applied.

Continuous crusher operation with better level measurement: Application of the month

01. October 2019
Rocks mining
Any mining operation is only as proficient as its crushing capabilities. Every crusher has an ideal level measurement at which it runs most efficiently. But getting an accurate and consistent level measurement in this application is a big challenge. Read how VEGA provides an accurate level measurement in this type of application.

Measuring rock flow on a conveyor belt: Application of the Month

01. July 2019
VEGA radiometric sensor measuring mass flow on a conveyor belt
Mass flow measurements are a necessity at quarries, mines, paper mills, and power plants. These measurements are required for two main reasons: control and material transfer. Getting a reliable and accurate measurement ensures operations run smoothly without interruptions or slowdowns.

Preventing overflows in fly ash silos: Application of the Month

05. June 2019
VEGA radar sensor measuring level of fly ash silo
Safely storing fly ash is a matter of safety and air quality, which is why it’s heavily regulated by government entities. Having an overflow or a spill can be a big problem, which is why having a reliable and accurate level measurement is so important.

Avoid blockages in cyclone vessels: Application of the month

06. February 2019
Radiometric FiberTrac 31mounted on a cyclone vessel in a cement plant
Cement plants use cyclone vessels to create ingredients for cement production. Limestone and clay are heated to extremely hot temperatures before advancing to the next step in the process. These ingredients can accumulate and cause blockages, so operators need to monitor for plugged chutes in order to know when to keep the process running and when to shut it down for a cleanout.

Maintaining Your Mining Equipment

28. January 2019
