Effective level measurement in the chemical process industries (CPI) helps maintain material inventory at economic quantities, improves product quality and maximizes plant output by avoiding spills and process upsets. When they are incorrectly matched to their application, level-measurement devices can contribute to lower quality and poorer process consistency. No single level-measurement technology is...

Vega Grieshaber KG Reliable switching down to –196°C The Vegaswing 66 vibrating level switch is said to be the first of a kind for extreme temperatures. Especially suitable for cryogenic liquids, the device switches reliably in process temperatures from –196 to 450°C, and operates at pressures from vacuum to 160 bars. The level switch offers increased protection and safety for...

Thanks to its new automated probe-end tracking function, the VegaFlex 82 radar sensor measures the level of bulk solids even with a low dielectric constant of 1.1 and higher with unprecedented reliability, says the...
February 1, 2013
Until now, the principle of a vibrating level switch has been limited to process conditions up to a maximum of 280°C and 100 bars. By using a new drive for the tuning fork of its Vegaswing 66...
December 1, 2012
The new PulsFox PMG 10 guided micropulse level indicators are designed to measure the level of high- or low-viscosity, adhesive, conductive or isolating liquids or bulk solids in storage or process containers, silos or...
December 1, 2012
Based on the patented StrainCell sensor technology, the new Solo-L level-measurement system is said to improve on existing silo-level-measurement devices by eliminating problems caused by material density, angle of...
November 1, 2012
The Dutch Metrological Institute NMi has approved the Rosemount Raptor tank-gauging system for custody transfer accuracy, and the German DIBt/TÜV Nord has tested and approved the system in accordance with the rules of overfill prevention. The Raptor is...

The 3DLevelScanner HE is designed for use in storage silos containing challenging materials, such as clinker, alumina and flyash. This new model of the scanner has an operating temperature...
February 1, 2012
Level measurement and control in process vessels can be one of the most challenging applications in which to obtain consistently safe and reliable results. Part of this difficulty may be due to the fact that the sizing of the vessel and selection and installation of the level instruments are frequently performed by different people at different times, rather than evaluated holistically as a system. Level...
February 1, 2012
Vegamet 391 with SIL (safety integrity level) qualification is a universal signal-conditioning instrument for a variety of measurement tasks, such as level, gage-and process-pressure...
December 1, 2011
The newly designed Pro Remote capacitance probe offers the ability to mount the sensor’s electronic components up to 75 ft away from the sensing probe. This point level indicator...
November 1, 2011
Effective level measurement helps ensure smooth, continuous processes by maintaining material inventory at economic quantities, and maximizes plant output by preventing spillage, system clogging and process upsets. In chemical process industries (CPI) applications, level measurement of liquids, powders and slurries are often complicated by the presence of steam, dust, foam, turbulence, caking or...
November 1, 2011
The Rosemount 530 Series Guided Wave Radar and 5400 Series non-contacting level transmitters now include the ability to communicate via the Modbus protocol. The addition of Modbus...
November 1, 2011
The CoFox CMG 01 level indicator is used for continuous level measurement in tanks containing liquid, electrically conductive media at temperatures from –40 to 150°C. The device...
September 1, 2011
Inventory management software known as 3D MultiVision allows users to view data from multiple bins in one window. The MultiVision software is a companion to all of this company’s 3DLevelScanner level sensor...
