Once they began using the VEGAPULS 64, KIK Custom Products discovered they were getting an accurate level reading in their soap vessel for the first time in a long time. Level readings were accurate throughout the process, even with varying amounts of steam, because the sensor is immune to condensation and build-up on the antenna. Additionally, the sensor has a higher dynamic range, so it was able to detect a low return signal coming back from the turbulent surface.
The VEGADIS 81 and the VEGA Tools App were able to provide two different ways for operators to view the level in the vessel at a safe distance away from the hot steam. Prior to this, operators would have to put on safety equipment – a full protective suit – just to get a look at the sensor and see what was happening. Upon seeing proof the operation in one vessel was running more safely and efficiently, KIK Custom Products purchased instruments for two more vessels running the same process.
