A massive shift in the marine transportation fuels market is moving closer as new IMO 2020 regulations are set to begin January 1, 2020. On that day, the marine sector is required to reduce sulfur emissions by over 80 percent.

VEGAPULS 69 level sensor secures coal supply in an Indonesian power plant

19. September
Like hardly any other country, Indonesia has committed itself to an ambitious programme for expanding its energy reserves. Coal-fired power plants are playing an important role in this effort. And level measurement technology from VEGA is making sure that the coal bunkers in these plants never run empty.

Guided wave radar reads through buildup in the sulfur pit: Application of the month

03. September
Sulfur pit 2
One of the most dangerous and corrosive byproducts is found in the sulfur pit – a concrete pit for storing molten sulfur. This is where you’ll also find hydrogen sulfide, a colorless, flammable, poisonous, and corrosive gas. Maintaining a safe operating level in the sulfur pit is just as important as it is dangerous.

VEGAPULS 69 radar level sensor measures the level of wood chips in a bunker

30. August
To be able to respond to increased demand, large bunker storage capacities are necessary.
Biomass bunkers can take on huge dimensions. In order to accurately determine the volumes of stored biomass, VEGA sensors are being used to measure not only vertically, but also horizontally. This is how one of Italy's largest biomass plants is reliably supplied with "fuel".

VEGAPULS 69 radar sensor measures the level reliably in small dosing vessels

12. August
In the production of dog food pellets, the manufacturer struggled constantly with an unreliable measuring point. After several different measuring principles failed, a breakthrough was achieved with 80-GHz radar level measurement technology.
