Measurement technology for hygienic and sterile processes

Optimal measurement technology – uncompromising quality

In the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, hygiene, reproducibility and flexibility are decisive factors for efficient as well as safe production with a high degree of automation. VEGA offers world-class level and pressure.measurement technology.

Standardised hygienic adapters

The standardised connections of the hygienic adaptors, which guarantee high system availability, can be selected as needed. Installing the adaptors requires only minimal effort. The end-to-end concept allows simple integration and fast maintenance – it also reduces spare parts inventories and production downtime.

No incompatibilities

VEGA sensors have been specially developed for the needs of the pharmaceutical industry, which are fulfilled by securely protected sealing, all-metal housings and wetted parts with a surface finish as fine as 0.3 µm RA.

Good manufacturing practice

Continuous monitoring of all production processes as well as routine inspection and testing of our sensors make us a reliable partner in adhering to good manufacturing practice. The basis for this is our quality management in compliance with ISO 9001 and our environmental management program based on ISO 14001.

Easy cleaning – reliable processes

To help ensure hygienic and sterile drug production processes, VEGA offers materials specially tailored to the strict requirements of the pharmaceutical industry – with all necessary approvals and material properties.

Efficient CIP/SIP cleaning

  • Cleaning in Place (CIP) and Sterilisation in Place (SIP) are methods for cleaning industrial process equipment.
  • During CIP cleaning, different liquids are pumped through the system piping. The cleaning media used are caustic and acidic solutions, some in high concentrations, often at extremely high temperatures.
  • VEGA sensors ensure that all required liquids are always available in sufficient amounts and reliably withstand the complex processes.

Wireless communication provides better accessibility: in clean rooms, in harsh industrial environments and in hazardous areas. It allows parameterisation, display and diagnostics from a distance of up to 25 metres, thus saving time and avoiding dangers. Simply via VEGA Tools app – on any available smartphone or tablet.

  
 

 

myVEGA

With myVEGA as your personal information platform you have access to numerous online functions relating to the VEGA products.

  • 2D/3D drawings of configured instruments
  • Access to product documentation and order data
  • Access codes for VEGA sensors
 

VEGA Inventory System

Lower inventory levels mean lower costs. VEGA Inventory System makes all important process and forecast information visible and easy to grasp. Measuring instruments installed on containers, tanks or silos automatically inform the user when replenishments are required. In your plant, the user-friendly service software accesses not only current measurement data, but also consumption data from previous operating periods.
 

 

IO-Link

VEGA uses IO-Link to make optimal use of all possibilities. With this manufacturer-independent, standard communication tool, sensors can be installed, parameterised and, if necessary, put back into operation faster and more cost-effectively. IO-Link is a digital interface that can transmit parameters automatically if an instrument is replaced.
