Getting an accurate level measurement in vessels of hotel soap

28. November
A sudsy bar of soap.
If you’ve ever stayed in a hotel and used one of those tiny bars of soap, chances are that soap was made in a plant in Northern Mississippi. Making the soap is a hot, sticky process and getting an accurate level measurement inside the tanks is no easy task.

The radar level transmitter VEGAPULS 64 delivers reliable measurement under fluctuating process conditions

20. November
One of the major process conditions in this  production facility is strong foaming.
The specialty chemicals manufacturer CHT Germany GmbH uses the VEGAPULS 64 radar level transmitter to protect its tank stirring units. Its process measurement has a direct effect on the power output of the agitator motors in the mixing tanks.

Radar sensors from VEGA ensure accurate metering in lubricant production

11. October
Both level (left) and pressure (right) are measured in the autoclave.
Keeping track of several hundred tanks is anything but easy. The contents must be precisely measured and documented so that the metering of individual ingredients is correct. At the same time, this is the most important source of information for purchasing and sales. That’s why pressure and level at Zeller+Gmelin are not only measured by VEGA sensors, the measured values are also recorded in the VEGA Inventory System.

VEGAPULS 69 supplies exact measured values for reliable production of high-quality chocolate

30. August
If there is a lack of raw materials, chocolate production at RITTER SPORT is at risk of coming to a standstill. By providing reliable measured values, the radar level transmitter VEGAPULS 69 ensures sufficient inventory levels in the raw material silos.

Level Measurement Technology Comparison: 80 GHz Through-Air Radar Sensors vs. Guided Wave Radar

03. November 2017
Radar level sensor and guided wave radar sensor.
80 GHz non-contact radar sensors appear to deliver the same superior focusing and incredible accuracy as the guided wave radar instruments that preceded them. This paper examines that claim by looking at how each technology performs against common measurement challenges.

Radar sensor VEGAPULS 64 ushers in a new outlook for level measurement in chemical and pharmaceutical applications

19. October 2017
The 80-GHz radar sensor VEGAPULS 64 opens up perspectives in the smallest of containers and deepest of tanks in chemical and pharmaceutical applications.
