VEGA Grieshaber KG
FOUNDATION Field Device
Fieldbus Foundation pressure transmitter with flush CERTEC? for level and
pressure measurement in paper, food processing, pharmaceutical and water/
waste water industries.
For determining the levels of liquids, the hydrostatic measuring
principle offers many advantages not the least of which are reliability
and economic efficiency. The measurement is affected neither by foam nor
by agitated product surfaces. The high chemical resistance of the ceramic
measuring cell and its front flush mounting allow the cleaning processes
(SIP and CIP) required in the food and pharmaceutical industry. For gauge
measurement in deep wells or basins, a hydrostatic pressure transmitter
is suspended on a cable and measures the pressure of the water column and
thus the level. A capillary tube in the connection cable joins the sensor
with the atmosphere and ensures that varying barometric pressure does not
influence the measuring result.
VEGA plics? instruments measure the process pressure in closed vessels
and pipelines with user and service-friendly technology. The measuring
cells can withstand any pressure and function reliably under all process
conditions in the chemical industry and in the production of foodstuffs.
VEGA pressure measuring cells compensate the influence of product
temperature automatically. The cell diaphragms also have high resistance
of vibration and alternating loads, as required for implementation in the
petrochemical industry and in mechanical engineering.
