VEGAPULS SR 68

Radar sensor for continuous level measurement of bulk solids

Standard radar sensor


Application area

The large selection of process fittings and materials allows use in wide temperature and pressure ranges.

The VEGAPULS SR 68 is a radar sensor for continuous measurement of bulk solids even under difficult process conditions. It is particularly suitable for level measurement in high silos and large bunkers. The VEGAPULS SR 68 is an economical solution thanks to the simple setup and the reliable, maintenance-free operation.

Your benefit

  • High plant availability, because wear and maintenance-free
  • Maintenance-free operation through non-contact measuring principle
  • Reliable measurement independent of vapour, dust and noise
