Pressure transmitter with ceramic CERTEC® measuring cell meets the stringent demands of the pharmaceutical industry

14. March
Thanks to its wide measuring range, one VEGABAR 82 sensor is sufficient, where previously two pressure transmitters operated in parallel.
A good example of this can be found at CARBOGEN AMCIS AG, where VEGABAR Series 80 is used for pressure measurement. Thanks to their wide measuring range and ceramic CERTEC® measuring cell, these high-performance pressure transmitters meet the requirements of bioprocesses, from fermentation and filtration to purification.

Ready-mix operations and materials haulers find a better way to do business

08. March
A bulk solids truck makes a delivery to a ready-mix cement plant.
Ready-mix concrete and construction materials hauling companies are working together to do business more efficiently and keep costs down. A solution consisting of better measurements and more easily accessible data allows both companies to focus on what they do best.

Measuring through plastic tanks: Application of the Month

04. March
Operators can mount the VEGAPULS WL S 61 above the poly vessel for a non-intrusive level measurement.
Radar signals can penetrate non-conductive products like plastic, and VEGA radars have been making non-intrusive level measurements using this method for a long time. During those years, VEGA has perfected a few tips and tricks to get the best results when you're storing materials inside poly vessels and IBC tanks.

Radar level transmitter VEGAPULS 64 measures the level in whey production

27. February
The Tirol Milch plant in Wörgl, which belongs to the Berglandmilch Group, is renowned for its cheese far beyond the borders of Tyrol. VEGA has been working together with the company for a long time. 10 to 12 VEGA radar level transmitters are currently in use.

Accurate level measurements for foamy applications

12. February
Foam makes it difficult to get a level measurement
Getting an accurate level measurement in the presence of foam can be especially challenging. Fortunately, there are technologies that can read through the foam and get a necessary liquid level measurement, giving operators better control over their process.

VEGA sensors handle complex measuring tasks in pharmaceuticals production

11. February
In pharmaceuticals manufacturing, the plant operator must be able to trust the measured values and the measuring instruments must function reliably for many years. For that reason, an Italian pharmaceuticals manufacturer relies exclusively on VEGA sensors for pressure and level measurement.

Avoid blockages in cyclone vessels: Application of the month

06. February

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

The mining industry has been around for a long time, and as a mine endures, it must adapt to the latest technologies to stay viable because mining equipment is susceptible to aging technology and wear and tear just like everything else. VEGA constantly strives to improve density measurement technology for the mining industry to help our mining customers make those necessary upgrades with ease.

Level measurement in the reactor: ceramic and metallic VEGA measuring cells easily handle high temperatures and aggressive substances

28. January
While conventional diff erential pressure transmitters were previously used for level measurement, BASF’s measurement and control engineers in Kaisten have now decided to replace their instrumentation. They have switched their process control over to electronic diff erential pressure, which is silicone oil-free, without capillary lines and therefore without mechanical pressure diaphragms.

7 good reasons for using pressure transmitters with ceramic measuring cell

22. January
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.
