Sensor with fast response time
Sto got informed about different measuring systems offered on the market. It soon became clear that only radar measurement technology would be a viable solution. The company eventually came across VEGAPULS 69
, which had been introduced to the market in 2014. Despite having had no experiences with VEGA, Sto installed the radar sensor on a trial basis in mid 2015.
The sensor is now being used in more than 10,000 installations worldwide. Its key advantages are its high transmission frequency of 80 GHz and antenna size of about 75 millimeters with a beam angle of only 4°. This allows the 80 GHz beam to measure reliably right past internal installations or buildup on the vessel wall.
