Measuring density with a non-contact measurement: Application of the month

09. December
A MiniTrac 31 density sensor is mounted on a vertical pipe to monitor the lime and asphalt mixture flowing upward. The measurement is made without interfering with the process or process material.
Asphalt shingles are made of fiberglass, asphalt, and ceramic-coated minerals. Fiberglass mats are run through a machine, coating the mats in asphalt multiple times. Near the end of the process, the ceramic-coated minerals are added for protection and color. The ratio of these two ingredients changes the asphalt mixture’s adhesive properties and its density, so a density measurement is critical for monitoring the adhesive properties of the mixture as it’s applied.

Modernizing radiometric measurements: A true story

11. November
Radiometric instrumentation lasts a long time. A paper mill in the Upper Midwest understands this all too well. During a service call, VEGA Field Service noticed a number of old radiometric detectors, one of which had been in operation since 1966. Interested in upgrading their dated equipment, operators at the paper mill called the radiometric experts at VEGA to schedule a visit and learn about their options. Not long after the call, VEGA was at the mill’s doorstep.

80 GHz radar vs. ultrasonic: Non-contact Level Measurement Technology Comparison

04. November
radar vs ultrasonic
When it comes to non-contact continuous level measurement, radar and ultrasonic are two of the most common technologies used. Both technologies are used for similar applications across industries, and both types of devices use similar principles to make a level measurement. However, each technology has varying degrees of success in different applications. This paper will compare and contrast 80 GHz radar sensors with ultrasonic transmitters for liquid and solid level measurements.

Preventing oil storage tank overfill hazards with a more reliable high level alarm: Application of the Month

01. November
overfill 3
Floating roof tanks are widely used at refineries everywhere, and spills in these vessels are not only costly, they’re also an environmental hazard. Fortunately, mitigating overfill risks is simplified by using a radar level sensor with an electronic output connected to a high level alarm, and in this application, the VEGAPULS 64 is the ideal radar sensor for the job.

VEGA Pressure Measurement Technology for the Production of Decor Paper

Continuous crusher operation with better level measurement: Application of the month

01. October
Rocks mining
Any mining operation is only as proficient as its crushing capabilities. Every crusher has an ideal level measurement at which it runs most efficiently. But getting an accurate and consistent level measurement in this application is a big challenge. Read how VEGA provides an accurate level measurement in this type of application.
