More Information:
VEGAPULS 68 Radar sensor - a tough instrument for tough environments Level measurement of bulk solids   Bulk solids, which vary widely in their density, form and features, confront the measuring instruments in industrial production processes with widely different challenges: powders often generate huge clouds of dust, while coarse, heavy bulk solids cause tremors and noise when being filled into a container from a great height. With VEGAPULS 68, level measurement in bulk solids is largely independent of process conditions. Due to optimized VEGA radar technology, the sensor can evaluate signals 1,000 times smaller than those conventional radar instruments can pick up. This high sensitivity allows a measuring range of up to 75 m even in products with bad reflective properties.   Area of application VEGAPULS 68, the level specialist for extreme bulk solids applications, fulfils all requirements for precise, reliable level detection of bulk solids in high-temperature or dusty environments such as coaling stations in power plants or storage facilities for building materials like clinker or cement. Because of these advantages, the robust VEGAPULS 68 is highly valued especially in the steel industry, in the building sector, in plastics processing as well as in the food industry and in the chemical and pharmaceutical sector.   Advantages VEGAPULS 68 is completely unaffected by dust, temperature, pressure, concussions or filling noise: - Non-contact measurement - Measuring range up to 75 m - High measuring precision - Simple installation - SIL qualified Technical data Measuring range:                    up to 75 m Process fitting:                        G1½A or flange Process temperature:              -200 ... +450 °C Process pressure:                     -1 ... +160 bar (-100 ... +16000 kPa) Measurement accuracy:          +/- 2 mm Transmitting frequency:          K Band
