Replacing displacers: Upgrading to guided wave radar technology eliminates costly maintenance

05. August
A VEGAFLEX 81 guided wave radar sensor is retrofitted in a displacer cage for an electronic level measurement.
Many refineries and petrochemical facilities rely on mechanical displacers for liquid level measurements and interface measurements. Replacing this older technology with a VEGAFLEX guided wave radar is a simple way to improve efficiency and eliminate unnecessary labor costs.

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.

How a simple point level measurement saw through the foam

06. July
Brewery front
Of all the sensors inside Bell’s Brewery, however, only one is highlighted with a bright LED indication ring – the VEGAPOINT 21. This point level switch is special for a couple of reasons. It’s the first of its kind to be installed in the United States, and it’s located on a foam trap tank in the newest addition of the growing brewery.

Level measurements in the deep fryer without the mess

26. February
Operating large, industrial fryers relies on a single level measurement made in a small side chamber using a non-contact 80 GHz radar.
Level measurements in large industrial fryers have traditionally been made using contact technology. More and more food processing facilities are finding more success with non-contact 80 GHz radar.

Compact radar sensors deliver reliable level values independently of process and environmental influences

11. February
Radar is the better ultrasonic under any kind of process or environmental conditions

Radiometric Measurements and X-Ray Interference

10. February
X-ray interference with radiometric, or nuclear, instrumentation is a serious problem that can result in measurement errors and permanent damage to detectors. This white paper discusses users’ options for preventing errors, avoiding damage, and continuing to measure during X-ray interference events.
