VEGA sensors handle complex measuring tasks in pharmaceuticals production

11. February
In pharmaceuticals manufacturing, the plant operator must be able to trust the measured values and the measuring instruments must function reliably for many years. For that reason, an Italian pharmaceuticals manufacturer relies exclusively on VEGA sensors for pressure and level measurement.

Avoid blockages in cyclone vessels: Application of the month

06. February

Cement plants use cyclone vessels to create ingredients for cement production. Limestone and clay are heated to extremely hot temperatures before advancing to the next step in the process. These ingredients can accumulate and cause blockages, so operators need to monitor for plugged chutes in order to know when to keep the process running and when to shut it down for a cleanout.

Maintaining Your Mining Equipment

28. January

The mining industry has been around for a long time, and as a mine endures, it must adapt to the latest technologies to stay viable because mining equipment is susceptible to aging technology and wear and tear just like everything else. VEGA constantly strives to improve density measurement technology for the mining industry to help our mining customers make those necessary upgrades with ease.

Level measurement in the reactor: ceramic and metallic VEGA measuring cells easily handle high temperatures and aggressive substances

28. January
While conventional diff erential pressure transmitters were previously used for level measurement, BASF’s measurement and control engineers in Kaisten have now decided to replace their instrumentation. They have switched their process control over to electronic diff erential pressure, which is silicone oil-free, without capillary lines and therefore without mechanical pressure diaphragms.

7 good reasons for using pressure transmitters with ceramic measuring cell

22. January
Pressure transmitters with ceramic CERTEC® measuring cell have virtually no drift, are oil free, with high compatibility to most process media, excellent long term stability and capable of measuring accurately over very small measuring ranges.

Monitoring the level of molten polyethylene for car parts

15. January
Car Interior - Steering Wheel
Many car parts are made from plastics and plastic composites, and this includes polyethylene. A major auto parts manufacturer was having difficulties finding a level measurement solution for their polyethylene tanks. Fortunately, VEGA representatives heard of the problem, and they found a solution with an 80 GHz radar.

Level transmitter for reliable disposal of sewage sludge

11. January
VEGAPULS WL S 61 is an all-rounder for water and wastewater applications. Its good focusing makes it ideal for pumping stations and rain overflow basins, as well as for flow measurement in open channels or continuous monitoring of river levels.

How loop reactors help keep us organized in the New Year: Application of the month

07. January
Loop Reactor at a Petrochemical Plant
The loop reactor is a critical step in polyethylene and polypropylene production. Monitoring the product density as the reaction occurs is equally as difficult as it is important. However, VEGA can provide a solution for these plants just as the products they're making provide solutions to homeowners looking to declutter in the New Year.

Making Shingle Manufacturing a whole lot safer with 80 GHz radar

Making roofing shingles is a hot, messy process. Monitoring the level of the hot asphalt being sprayed onto these shingles is important for keeping the operation running safely and smoothly, without interruption.

Radar level sensors ensure optimal flow in slurry and UF tanks

12. December 2018
VEGA measuring systems are being designed more and more with hygiene in mind, in order to reliably protect closed biosystems from microbes.
At Lonza, high-precision VEGAPULS 64 radar level sensors measure biopharmaceutical solutions in what are known as 'slurry' tanks. A precise level measurement ensures the quality of the highly patented substances.
