Getting an accurate level measurement in vessels of hotel soap

21. February
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.

VEGAPULS 64 monitors the level in chocolate cream tanks. The perfect melt.

12. February
The production facility of Socado S.r.l., near Verona, Italy, is the El Dorado of all chocolate addicts. Here, the company produces chocolate bars and filled chocolates for direct consumption, and they also create products that require further processing, like chocolate blocks for the confectionery industry and many kinds of cocoa, milk and hazelnut based spreads.

Compact radar sensors deliver reliable level values independently of process and environmental influences

11. February
Radar is the better ultrasonic under any kind of process or environmental conditions

Plastic pellets to stadium seating: How 80 GHz radar level measurement guarantees seating for millions

30. January
The VEGAPULS 69 radar sensor provides accurate continuous level measurements from the top of the silo holding plastic pellets.
The latest 80 GHz radar level measurement sensors can measure materials with low reflective qualities like plastic pellets and flakes. The VEGAPULS 69 uses a higher frequency and smarter, more sensitive electronics to make level measurements in silos that weren’t previously possible.

New compact radar level instruments defy buildup to deliver reliable measurement

16. January
Even in applications with heavy buildup, radar is the better ultrasonic.

80 GHz radar vs. ultrasonic: Non-contact Level Measurement Technology Comparison

04. November 2019
radar vs ultrasonic
When it comes to non-contact continuous level measurement, radar and ultrasonic are two of the most common technologies used. Both technologies are used for similar applications across industries, and both types of devices use similar principles to make a level measurement. However, each technology has varying degrees of success in different applications. This paper will compare and contrast 80 GHz radar sensors with ultrasonic transmitters for liquid and solid level measurements.

Preventing oil storage tank overfill hazards with a more reliable high level alarm: Application of the Month

01. November 2019

Floating roof tanks are widely used at refineries everywhere, and spills in these vessels are not only costly, they’re also an environmental hazard. Fortunately, mitigating overfill risks is simplified by using a radar level sensor with an electronic output connected to a high level alarm, and in this application, the VEGAPULS 64 is the ideal radar sensor for the job.

VEGAPULS 69 level sensor secures coal supply in an Indonesian power plant

19. September 2019
A close up of a VEGAPULS 69 radar sensor installed in a power plant
Indonesia has committed itself to an ambitious program for expanding its energy reserves like no other country in the world. Coal-fired power plants are playing an important role in this effort, and level measurement technology from VEGA is ensuring the coal bunkers in these plants never run empty.

VEGAPULS 69 radar level sensor measures the level of wood chips in a bunker

30. August 2019
To be able to respond to increased demand, large bunker storage capacities are necessary.
Biomass bunkers can take on huge dimensions. In order to accurately determine the volumes of stored biomass, VEGA sensors are being used to measure not only vertically, but also horizontally. This is how one of Italy's largest biomass plants is reliably supplied with "fuel".

VEGAPULS 69 radar sensor measures the level reliably in small dosing vessels

12. August 2019
In dog food pellet production, a manufacturer was constantly struggling with an unreliable measuring point. After several different measuring principles failed, a breakthrough was achieved with 80-GHz radar level measurement technology.
