Measuring rock flow on a conveyor belt: Application of the Month

01. July
Mass flow measurements are a necessity at quarries, mines, paper mills, and power plants. These measurements are required for two main reasons: control and material transfer. Getting a reliable and accurate measurement ensures operations run smoothly without interruptions or slowdowns.

Radiometric mass flow measurement ensures precision charging in lime works

17. May
The non-contact WEIGHTRAC 31 is ideal for harsh operating conditions and can also be relatively easily retrofitted to a conveyor belt.

Finding the optimum level in coke drums: Application of the month

02. May

The delayed coking unit is arguably one of the most important applications in a refinery, and maximizing its efficiency with accurate and reliable level measurements gives operators the ability to safely increase throughput and minimize downtime. Since this is a volatile process in a large vessel with thick walls, radiometric instrumentation has been proven to be the best solution.

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.

Security in every application

Every industry places very specific requirements on the measurement technology it uses. VEGA sensors reliably fulfil the most demanding measuring tasks.
