One pressure sensor for every application
VEGABAR 82: What you need to know
Pressure is reliable and repeatable, and at VEGA, we believe a pressure sensor should be able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. The VEGABAR 82 lasts longer and requires little to no recalibration because of its ceramic measuring cell. This versatile pressure sensor is used to measure process pressure, hydrostatic pressure, and electronic differential pressure in a number of industries.
- Dry, ceramic measuring cell: Abrasion-resistant ceramic requires little to no recalibration.
- Long-lasting sensor: Ceramic measuring cells last long after their metal counterparts have failed
- Bluetooth connectivity: No more crawling on the ground or squeezing into tight spaces to commission your sensor.
- 24/7 Support: Field service support available around the clock
Level measurement in an elderberry mash tank
Elderberries are first mashed up in order to produce a concentrate, from which food dyes are then made. The elderberry mash is refrigerated to maintain the product quality. Accurate level measurement and exact records of the process temperatures ensure hygienic operation.
Certified materials according to FDA and EC 1935/2004 regulations
One sensor, two measured values: simultaneous measurement of level and temperature
Maintenance-free, continuous operation
Fluidized bed reactor
Level measurement and filter monitoring in granulate production in the fluidized bed process
One method for producing and drying granulates is the fluidized bed process. A uniform stream of air is fed up through a distributor plate at the bottom of the fluidized bed reactor. A liquid granule suspension is sprayed in from above, in the air stream it turns into solid granulate and collects on the top of distributor plate and the exhaust air flows through a filter for cleaning. To ensure a high-quality process, both the granulate quantity on the distributor plate and the condition of the filter must be permanently monitored. The measurement technology must also fulfil the most stringent hygienic requirements in order to guarantee a consistently high granulate quality.
Certified hygienic design (3A/EHEDG) and approved materials according to EC 1935/2004 and FDA
Three instruments, four measured values: pressure (vessel and line), granulate level and temperature
Process data storable and transferable
Compressor knockout drum
Level measurement in the compressor knockout drum
The vapour liquid separation that occurs in a knockout drum protects the waste or cooling stream from process vapours and compressors from water. This crucial measurement point means it requires constant, reliable level monitoring without being influenced by the high volume of vapour inside the vessel. A reliable instrument ensures that there is no water carry-over into the compressor, avoiding the extremely expensive downtime that results from an upset.
Diverse technologies with comparative output can provide redundant level measurement
Materials with high chemical resistance reduce maintenance costs

Electronic differential pressure detects density changes in the beer fermentation tank: Application of the Month
A brewery's fermentation tank is arguably one of the most important steps in the entire beer making process. It's where the beer is made. That's why it's important to have an accurate and reliable measurement of how efficiently the ingredients are working to make the final product.Read more
Pressure transmitters with wear-free ceramic CERTEC® measuring cells can compensate for temperature shocks
The cooking and canning of food is a proven method of preservation. A short period of heating food is enough to kill any bacteria and prolong shelf life. Temperature shocks occur during CIP and SIP cleaning cycles, and they are easily compensated by pressure transmitters with a ceramic CERTEC® measuring cell - for a reliable measurement.Read more
7 good reasons for using pressure transmitters with ceramic measuring cell
Pressure transmitters with ceramic CERTEC® measuring cell have virtually no drift, are oil free, with high compatibility to most process media, excellent long term stability and capable of measuring accurately over very small measuring ranges.Read more
