Radar

The microwave barriers of the radar point level sensors are suitable for non-contact point level detection of liquids and bulk solids of any kind, including detection of high purity liquids through container walls. When it comes to bulk solids, the microwave barrier lends itself well for heavy and dust-generating media or for backup detection on conveyor belts.

Featured Solutions

  • VEGAMIP-R61

    The VEGAMIP R61 is the receiving unit of the microwave barrier for level detection of bulk solids and liquids. Typical applications are the detection of bulk solids in silos, bunkers and crushers as well as of liquids in tubes and vessels. The non-contact measuring principle has no direct contact to the medium and guarantees wear and maintenance-free permanent operation.

    Application area

    The simple and robust measuring system is virtually independent of the process and the chemical and physical properties of the product. Also suitable for detection of objects, such as vehicles or ships, or detection of solid materials on conveyor belts.

    Your benefit

    • Simple adjustment saves time and costs for setup
    • Reliable measurement even with very abrasive products
    • Reliable measurement even with changing product features

    Applications:

    Belt transfer station

    In a coal power plant, either hard coal or brown coal is burned as the main fuel source. The coal is transported on conveyor belts to the furnace. To avoid backup or overfilling at the belt transfer stations, level controls are necessary. Because only a reliable level measurement at these belt transfer stations can ensure uninterrupted feeding of the furnaces with coal. Additional point level detectors are installed to prevent overfilling.

    Lime silo I

    For flue gas desulfurization a continuous production of the lime milk is required, the lime is kept on hand in sufficient quantities in large silos. Lime tends to readily adhere to more or less anything, depending on its type and consistency, interfering with equipment like the operation of instruments. A robust, non-susceptible level measurement is therefore absolutely necessary for reliable lime logistics and stocking. That’s why a non-contact measuring instrument that also works well in the very dusty environment is essential here.

  • VEGAMIP-R61

    The VEGAMIP R62 is the receiving unit of the microwave barrier in separate version that allows for installation on dangerous mounting sites or sites difficult to access. Typical applications are the detection of bulk solids in silos, bunkers and crushers as well as liquids in tubes and vessels. The non-contact measuring principle has no direct contact to the medium and guarantees wear and maintenance-free permanent operation.

    Application area

    The non-contact measuring method has no direct contact with the medium and thus guarantees continuous, wear and maintenance free operation. Detached version for use in poorly accessible or dangerous mounting locations.

    Truck loading

    Dust-free, closed loading systems are needed for fine aggregates and finished products such as cement. Automated loading of trucks is preferred in the industry and, while the load quantity is determined with a weighing system, it must be ensured that the truck is in the correct place and not overfilled. Reliable point level detection and vehicle positioning shortens loading times, increases throughput and improves the efficiency of the entire system.

    Incinerator feed chute

    After the crane system lifts the waste from the waste bunker and drops it to the feed chute, in the lower part of the chute, a hydraulic piston pushes the waste onto the combustion grate. It is important that waste in the chute is always at an optimal level and uniformly distributed. This prevents air from leaking into the furnace and ensures a constant supply of fuel for combustion. For that reason the minimum level in the feed chute has to be monitored and the resulting data displayed to the crane operator.

    Coke silo

    Coke is often stored in very tall silos. Coke product is also susceptible to plugging the chute as the vessel empties. To accurately measure and monitor the level in these silos, especially during fill/empty stages, the instrumentation must be able to perform reliably, even under these conditions.

    Crusher

    The large boulders are extracted from the solid bedrock with blasting. This very first stage in the process is needed to enable these very large rocks to be crushed by smaller, secondary jaw and roller crushers, which create the smaller sizes for screening to produce the basic building materials like gravel, grit or sand. To enable efficient, continuous operation and keep wear on the crusher as low as possible, level measurement and point level detection are required.
