Area of application - VEGA has been a technology leader in the area of radar level measurement for many years. In almost every industrial process, the levels of liquids, muds, pastes, powders and bulk solids have to be measured continuously in tanks, silos, containers and pipelines. The requirements placed on the measuring instrument are as different as the types of products whose levels must be recorded, no matter whether it's process water or sewage, food, lye or acid, oil, cement or mining debris. External influences, such as very low or high temperatures, under- or overpressure, vibration or abrasion, are also factors the respective measuring instruments have to cope with when measuring the filling level. Radar sensors from VEGA offer a suitable solution for each of these different applications.
The measuring principle - The VEGAPULS sensor emits short radar wave pulses in the direction of the medium. The surface of the medium reflects the radar waves which are then received back by the antenna system of the radar sensor. Finally, the instrument calculates the level from the running time of the radar signals.
Radar sensors for liquids - Two different emission frequencies are available for the level measurement of liquids. The compact, high-frequency K-band sensors VEGAPULS 61, 62 and 63 are particularly suitable for applications in which very high precision is required. Excellent signal focusing is achieved even with small antenna sizes. The low-frequency C-band sensors VEGAPULS 65 and 66, on the other hand, are better able to penetrate foam and strong condensate deposits and are thus suitable for especially difficult process conditions.
Radar sensor for bulk solids - The high-frequency K-band sensors VEGAPULS 67 and 68 are applied for level measurement in bulk solids. Due to the excellent signal focusing, internal silo installations or buildup on the walls have no influence on the measurement. The highly sensitive electronics, especially adapted to the requirements of bulk solids measurement, enables reliable level measurement of widely different products up to 75 m.
