VEGAFLEX 83

TDR sensor for continuous level and interface measurement of liquids

For aggressive media or extremely high hygienic requirements


Application area

PFA coated or polished sensor. Even in applications with steam, buildup, foam or condensation, the sensor delivers precise and reliable readings.

The VEGAFLEX 83 level sensor measures maintenance-free agressive liquids or liquid media with highest hygienic requirements. Even in applications with vapour, buildup, foam generation and condensation, the sensor delivers precise and reliable measured values. The VEGAFLEX 83 is the economical and ideal solution for your application.

Your benefit

  • The gap-free hygienic design ensures simple and reliable cleanability
  • The maintenance-free operation increases the plant efficiency
  • The guided adjustment enables a simple, time-saving and reliable setup

Guided radar level sensor for sterile containers and hygienic applications

The VEGAFLEX 83 guided radar level sensor is ideal for level and interface (separation layer) measurement in tanks or sterile containers in the food and pharmaceutical industry. With its bare stainless steel probe, it meets the highest standards of hygiene and is the perfect solution for all hygienically sensitive media. The high-quality stainless steel probe easily withstands aggressive or corrosive liquids. Measurement is completely independent of product properties such as density or temperature, as well as foam formation or build-up.

The VEGAFLEX 83 guided radar level sensor is a special probe for hygienically sensitive liquids, e.g. for:

  • Level measurement in a ketchup mixer
  • Level measurement in milk tanks
  • Level measurement in acid containers

Other applications

Exhaust air cleaning in a wafer washing facility

Steam generation under hygienic conditions

Batch holding tank on a filling system

Level measurement in the holding tank of a filling system

Level measurement in the holding tank of a filling system
