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.
