A perfect view – even with condensation!

Always reliable measurement, even with buildup and deposits

For the latest generation of radars, condensate on the sensor is not an issue. Totally unaffected by condensation or buildup on the antenna, VEGAPULS 64 accurately detects the liquid level.  With the smallest antenna of its kind and exceptional focusing, it delivers outstanding performance every time. Simply world-class!

How does it work?

Highly resistant encapsulated PTFE antenna for long service life in the chemical sectors

Messy conditions – so what?

The antenna system of VEGAPULS 64 is encapsulated in PTFE or PEEK, so there are no cavities or crevices in which product can accumulate. The surface of the material is very finely processed with diamond tools, which also considerably reduces product adhesion. In addition, special software algorithms filter out interference caused by buildup on the antenna system. Thanks to the high dynamic range of the sensor, signal attenuation caused by product deposits is largely compensated. This allows the level to be reliably detected even with contamination on the sensor.

Your benefit

  • High measurement certainty, even with product deposits collecting during operation
  • Measurement independent of condensation and system quickly available after cleaning cycles
  • Non-contact measurement enables maintenance-free operation
Optimized signal processing makes VEGAPULS 64 independent of buildup.

A radar beam focused like a laser!

Good focusing delivers security

The latest cutting-edge technology from the world leader: the unsurpassed focusing of VEGAPULS 64. This enables the radar beam to be targeted at the liquid surface with pinpoint accuracy, avoiding internal obstructions like heating coils and agitators. This new generation of level sensors is also completely unaffected by condensation or buildup and has the smallest antenna of its kind.  Simply world-class!

How does it work?

Excellent signal focusing allows use even in confined spaces

Level in the focus

VEGAPULS 64 operates with a transmission frequency of 80 GHz. With an 80-mm antenna, this results in a beam angle of only 3°. The radar sensor receives only distinct, definitive reflections from the product surface. This makes the measurement more accurate and reliable.
By comparison: a conventional radar sensor with 26 GHz transmission frequency and an antenna of the same size has a beam angle of approximately 10°. Due to the considerably wider signal beam, agitators, fittings or buildup on the vessel wall cause interference that can affect the measuring result.

Your benefit

  • Considerably easier setup and commissioning, even with complex vessel internals
  • Increased measurement certainty over the entire measuring range through better focusing
  • High accuracy, even when the sensor is mounted close to the tank wall
A radar beam with 80 GHz only reflects from the product surface. A wider radar beam with 26 GHz also reflects from internal fixtures and agitators.

The ultimate for small tanks!

Small process fittings extend the area of application for radar

When it comes to contactless level measurement of liquids in small containers, smaller is better. With the smallest antenna of its kind, VEGAPULS 64 is simply the greatest! With its excellent focusing and insensitivity to condensation or buildup, this new radar sensor is truly exceptional. Simply world-class!

How does it work?

Smallest antenna in the world, process fittings down to ¾" thread

Small but mighty

VEGAPULS 64 operates with a transmission frequency of 80 GHz. This corresponds to a factor of 3 compared to the technologies used until now. For that reason, the antenna system and the process fitting can have correspondingly smaller dimensions.
That makes radar measurement technology more interesting for a much wider range of applications. Existing vessels with small process fittings can be equipped with radar sensors without first carrying out costly modifications.

Your benefit

  • Easy retrofitting of existing facilities, without modification
  • Threaded, flange and hygienic fittings for widely different areas of industry
With its compact design and process fittings down to ¾" thread, VEGAPULS 64 can be used very effectively on small tanks and containers.
