VEGA introduces 80 GHz radar sensors to customers in Rustenburg and Sasolburg

VEGA Controls SA introduced the VEGAPULS 64 and 69 radar sensors to customers at two separate events in February. The conference was very well attended by customers from the mining and refining sectors from Rustenburg and Sasolburg respectively.

Clemens Hengstler, Product Manager for Radar at VEGA Grieshaber KG Germany demonstrated how 80GHz Radar technology can help improve production in both the mining and chemical industries.

The VEGAPULS 64 is a sensor for continuous level measurement of liquids. With small tanks or in the case of narrow spaces, the small process fittings offer special advantages. The very good signal focusing enables the use in vessels with many installations such as stirrers and heating spirals.

The VEGAPULS 69 is a sensor for continuous measurement of bulk solids under different process conditions. It is ideal for level measurement in very high silos, large bunkers and segmented vessels. Thanks to the very good signal focussing a simple setup and reliable measurement is ensured. The VEGAPULS 69 can be equipped with an encapsulated plastic antenna or a lens antenna integrated in the metal flange. This enables the optimum application for different application areas.
