Vibration

Vibrating point level sensors are used for overfill and dry run protection in liquids. They are also suitable for safety-related applications up to SIL2. Special materials and coated versions also allow their use in aggressive materials.

Featured Solutions

  • VEGASWING 61

    The VEGASWING 61 is a universal level switch for use in all liquids. Independent of the mounting position, it detects reliably with millimetre accuracy the limit level. The instrument can be used in vessels as an empty or full detector, as approved overfill protection, dry run protection or pump protection in vessels and pipelines. The VEGASWING 61 offers maximum reliability in a wide application range.

    Application area

    It detects the limit level reliably and with millimetre accuracy directly at the mounting position. Numerous process fittings, approvals as well as housing and electronics versions.

    Your benefit

    • Precise and reliable function due to product-independent switching point
    • Low maintenance costs
    • Minimum time and cost expenditure thanks to simple setup without medium

    Applications:

    Pump room

    To protect the process pumps, any leakage water, for example, arising from a faulty pump seal, is detected and an alarm triggered. The pressure in the pipe is measured directly at the pump and displayed in the control system of the plant. Any malfunctions can be quickly detected and dealt with.

    Cooling Water Pumps

    A considerable amount of cooling water is required for a coal power plant. Large, powerful pumps are needed to keep the huge quantities of water circulating. Robust and adjustment-free sensors ensure that the pumps never run dry.

    Ballast tanks

    Floating drilling or pumping assets such as platforms or FPSOs are stabilized by filling or emptying ballast tanks with seawater. This enables operators to critically and safely manage the ballast and trim of a vessel according to operational needs, deck loading and sea conditions. For trouble-free operation of the ballast system and the safety of personnel and equipment on board, reliable level measurement and point level detection are absolutely essential.

    Cleaning agent storage tank of the CIP system

    The cleaning of process equipment in the food industry takes place within the framework of validated “Cleaning in Place (CIP)” processes that ensure aseptic conditions in production tanks. Sodium hydroxide or concentrated acid are frequently used as cleaning agents, which are stored in the storage tank of the CIP system and diluted in the production vessel. Level measurement enables optimal storage of these cleaning agents. Point level detection serves as overfill and dry run protection.

  • VEGASWING-63

    VEGASWING 63 is used as a universal level switch in all liquids. Independent of the mounting position it detects reliably with millimetre accuracy the level. The instrument can be used in vessels as an empty or full detector, as approved overfill protection, dry run protection or pump protection. The position of the switching point is determined through the tube extension. The VEGASWING 63 offers high reliability and security in a wide application range.

    Application area

    The position of the switching point can be up to 6 m away from the installation site. Numerous process fittings, approvals as well as housing and electronics versions.

    Your benefit

    • Precise and reliable function due to product-independent switching point
    • Low maintenance costs
    • Minimum time and cost expenditure thanks to simple setup without medium

    Applications:

    Crude oil storage tank

    Crude oil is pumped directly into the cargo tanks on board in order to separate gas, oil and water from each other using gravity. To ensure profitable utilisation of the loading capacities as well as effective control of the pumps, the level is measured continuously and the point levels are monitored.

    Anhydrous ammonia storage tank

    During the sulfur removal process, nitrogen is converted into ammonia through a water wash process to be sold for fertilizer production. Stringent environmental restrictions and the high hazard potential make secure control of the levels in ammonia handling processes absolutely necessary.

    Separator

    Exact interface measurement in separators is important for ensuring the quality of the separation process. Continuous control of the interface between oil and water ensures that oil is not inadvertently withdrawn instead of water. This saves costs and increases the efficiency of the plant. A vibrating level switch serves as an additional overfill protection mechanism.

    Lime milk storage tank

    The sulphur in the flue gas is chemically bound by injecting lime milk into the scrubbing tower. To ensure that there is always enough lime milk available for the scrubbing tower, sensors are required to regulate the level and reliably prevent an overfilling of the tank.
