A the end of 2004, VEGA Grieshaber KG introduced the first radar sensor designed for bulk solids level measurement.
Now new sensors for bulk solids have a sensitivity a thousand times higher than that of radar sensors for liquids and are suitable for the varying reflection characteristics of solid surface geometries. Swivelling antenna systems can be precisely orientated towards the product surface.
The VEGAPULS68 radar sensors have high reliability under extreme dust generation during pneumatic filling of powdery substances. The radar signals are unaffected by temperature and pressure fluctuations.
VEGA Grieshaber KG is based in Schiltach, Germany. www.vega.com"
