Preventing overflows in fly ash silos: Application of the Month

05. June
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.

A long-term relationship, through reliable level and pressure measurement

27. May
Sensors in the production and storage tanks measure level and pressure
The fruit processing company VOG PRODUCTS ensures high quality in its processing of fruit into concentrates, puree and flavourings. For many years now, the company has relied on over 250 dependable VEGA level and pressure measuring instruments to monitor its production and storage tanks.

The level sensor VEGAPULS 64 secures the raw material supply in the cosmetics industry

23. April
Whether confronted by installations such as agitators, adhesive media or extreme conditions such as SIP and CIP processes: the 80-GHz level sensor VEGAPULS 64 always delivers reliable measured values from the tanks and silos of the cosmetics industry.

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.

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.

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.

Radar level sensors ensure optimal flow in slurry and UF tanks

12. December 2018
VEGA measuring systems are being designed more and more with hygiene in mind, in order to reliably protect closed biosystems from microbes.
At Lonza, high-precision VEGAPULS 64 radar level sensors measure biopharmaceutical solutions in what are known as 'slurry' tanks. A precise level measurement ensures the quality of the highly patented substances.

Level measurement in glass vessels with 80 GHz radar sensor

06. December 2018
In addition to the many other advantages of the new radar sensors, two aspects make level measurement with 80 GHz in glass vessels particularly interesting: the small process fittings and the ability to measure through non-conductive materials. De Dietrich Process Systems, a company specializing in QVF® glass equipment, uses the new high-frequency radar based level technology to allow its users to significantly improve process monitoring.

The radar level transmitter VEGAPULS 64 delivers reliable measurement under fluctuating process conditions

20. November 2018
One of the major process conditions in this  production facility is strong foaming.
The specialty chemicals manufacturer CHT Germany GmbH uses the VEGAPULS 64 radar level transmitter to protect its tank stirring units. Its process measurement has a direct effect on the power output of the agitator motors in the mixing tanks.

Radar sensors from VEGA ensure accurate metering in lubricant production

11. October 2018
Both level (left) and pressure (right) are measured in the autoclave.
Keeping track of several hundred tanks is anything but easy. The contents must be precisely measured and documented so that the metering of individual ingredients is correct. At the same time, this is the most important source of information for purchasing and sales. That’s why pressure and level at Zeller+Gmelin are not only measured by VEGA sensors, the measured values are also recorded in the VEGA Inventory System.
