Level Measurement 101: Understanding Differential Pressure

15. May
Differential pressure
This article will focus solely on how differential pressure is used to calculate a liquid level measurement in pressurized tanks. Advantages, limitations, and common industrial applications for differential pressure will be discussed.

Reliable levels for the right taste: Fohrenburg brewery relies on VEGA sensors

15. April
Anyone who has a unicorn in their coat of arms must certainly believe in magic and power of legend. Since 1260, the unicorn has featured in both the emblem of Bludenz and the trademark of the Fohrenburg brewery. However, in everyday beer production, instead of magic, it is better to rely on real measured values, preferably those delivered by VEGA sensors.

Electronic differential pressure detects density changes in the beer fermentation tank: Application of the Month

01. April
Fermentation Vessels combine wort and yeast to make beer.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pressure measurement in the ozone collection pipe

15. October 2018
Drinking water is the most important food of all. VEGA’s pressure transducers make an important contribution to the continuous processing of top quality drinking water.
