Pressure transmitter with ceramic CERTEC® measuring cell meets the stringent demands of the pharmaceutical industry

14. March
Thanks to its wide measuring range, one VEGABAR 82 sensor is sufficient, where previously two pressure transmitters operated in parallel.
A good example of this can be found at CARBOGEN AMCIS AG, where VEGABAR Series 80 is used for pressure measurement. Thanks to their wide measuring range and ceramic CERTEC® measuring cell, these high-performance pressure transmitters meet the requirements of bioprocesses, from fermentation and filtration to purification.

Measuring through plastic tanks: Application of the Month

04. March
Operators can mount the VEGAPULS WL S 61 above the poly vessel for a non-intrusive level measurement.
Radar signals can penetrate non-conductive products like plastic, and VEGA radars have been making non-intrusive level measurements using this method for a long time. During those years, VEGA has perfected a few tips and tricks to get the best results when you're storing materials inside poly vessels and IBC tanks.

Radar level transmitter VEGAPULS 64 measures the level in whey production

27. February
The Tirol Milch plant in Wörgl, which belongs to the Berglandmilch Group, is renowned for its cheese far beyond the borders of Tyrol. VEGA has been working together with the company for a long time. 10 to 12 VEGA radar level transmitters are currently in use.

Accurate level measurements for foamy applications

12. February
Foam makes it difficult to get a level measurement
Getting an accurate level measurement in the presence of foam can be especially challenging. Fortunately, there are technologies that can read through the foam and get a necessary liquid level measurement, giving operators better control over their process.

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

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.

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.
