VEGA has been on the forefront of using radiation to make process measurements since the 1950s. Still, we recognize that not everyone understands radiation and some people are downright afraid of it. As industry leaders, it’s our responsibility to explain how radiation makes a measurement and the measures taken to keep users of this technology safe.

VEGAPULS: Level measurement with radar

In continuous non-contact level measurement with radar, the sensor sends microwave signals towards the medium from above. The surface of the medium reflects the signals back in the direction of the sensor. Using the received microwave signals, the sensor determines the distance to the product surface and calculates the level from it.

Liquids and solids are commonly measured with this measuring technique.

The advantages

  • Non-contact level measurement with radar is characterized by especially high measurement accuracy
  • Measurement is not affected by temperature, pressure or dust
  • User-friendly adjustment saves time
