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.

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.

Monitoring the level of molten polyethylene for car parts

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.

Making Shingle Manufacturing a whole lot safer with 80 GHz radar

Asphalt roofing shingles installed on a house
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.

Level measurement in glass vessels with 80 GHz radar sensor

06. December 2018
In addition to the many other advantages of the new radar sensors, two aspects make level measurement with 80 GHz in glass vessels particularly interesting: the small process fittings and the ability to measure through non-conductive materials. De Dietrich Process Systems, a company specializing in QVF® glass equipment, uses the new high-frequency radar based level technology to allow its users to significantly improve process monitoring.

Getting an accurate level measurement in vessels of hotel soap

28. November 2018
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 2018
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.

Thanksgiving at VEGA Americas

Family gathers around the Thanksgiving Table
Thanksgiving in the United States is all about family. And VEGA, being a family-owned business, can get behind the values that surround this American holiday.

What haunts a Process Engineer’s Halloween?

30. October 2018
Trick-or-treat bowl
What would happen if all the candy companies ran out of sugar? That would be a truly scary Halloween. Fortunately, VEGA provides process instrumentation, so the candy creators always know just how much sugar is left in their storage silos.
