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.

Relying on our own measurement technology – level measurement of silicone gel

26. July
Electronics manufacturing in Schiltach is responsible for the intelligent inner 'brains' of all VEGA products.
The radar sensor VEGAPULS 64 also optimizes one of VEGA's own processes in electronics manufacturing in Schiltach, where more than one million printed circuit boards are produced every year for both sensors and signal conditioning instruments.

Shingle manufacturer achieves precise pump control with VEGA 80 GHz level sensor

04. May
Shingles are dipped in asphalt and asphalt is measured with the VEGAPULS 64 radar sensor for liquid level.
4mm of liquid asphalt was the difference between running a pump at 0% and 100% capacity for a Canadian shingle company. They found the to-the-drop level measurement they needed with the VEGAPULS 64 radar sensor. Learn more in this success story.

Level Measurement 101: Through-air Radar Does It All

28. March
Through-air radar for level measurement comes in a variety of antenna sizes.
In the second installment of Level Measurement 101, our series on level measurement technologies, Radar Product Manager Greg Tischler explains how through-air radar operates and why now is the best time to use this technology to monitor level in liquids and bulk solids applications.

VEGAPULS 64 level sensor monitors active ingredient concentration in pharmaceuticals

08. December 2017
The dual requirements for instrumentation used in drug manufacturing demand both perfect hygiene and maximum precision: even the smallest accuracy deviations in a process can lead to large differences in the potency of the medicine. A pharmaceutical company near Shanghai uses extraction processes to produce biological drugs with highly precise dosages of active ingredients.

Ball Valves, Gate Valves, and 80 GHz Radar: What We've Learned

01. December 2017
Isolation valves are common in many automated processes, especially those involving harsh liquid products. Isolating a level measurement sensor from a volatile product protects plant personnel and the sensor. Historically, using a through-air radar sensor in such an application has proven problematic. After hearing about successful and reliable level measurement using 80 GHz radar on isolation valves in the field, we tested the VEGAPULS 64 on valves in our lab. Find out what we learned.

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.

VEGAPULS 64 measures levels reliably in fruit and vegetable processing

05. October 2017
"An apple a day keeps the doctor away". Many people take this old English proverb to heart, from babyhood through to adulthood. This means specialists in the fruit and vegetable processing industry have to make sure that even applesauce out of a baby food jar has the right consistency and quality. This includes the company Mainfrucht, a subsidiary of Grünewald International.
