Radar sensor forbulk solids processing

VEGA’s VEGAPULS 69 bulk solids radar sensor offers high levels of safety, reliability and accuracy for a wide application spectrum.

The sensor operates with an 80GHz transmission frequency and a 75mm antenna aperture, and a 4° beam angle enables more accurate results.

The focused 80GHz beam avoids any internal installations and build-up on the vessel wall, resulting in highly reliable measurement data.

Additional features of the VEGAPULS 69 include:

  • Adjustment with a PC
  • Display and adjustment capabilities
  • Accurate measurements
  • Serial number and data matrix codes
  • Diagnosis capabilities

The VEGAPULS 69 offers a large dynamic range to ensure a higher measurement accuracy and reliability for materials with decent reflective properties such as coal, ore or rock.

It also effectively measures solids with poor reflective properties such as plastic powders or dry wood chips.

Robust measurement technologies for mining applications

For many years, VEGA’s reliable measurement technologies have been proven in all areas of mining and processing applications involving construction materials.

Ranging from rocks to fine gypsum to asphalt, our sensors reliably measure the contents of silos to enable optimal production.

Our technologies ensure reliable measurement in all weather conditions while enabling cost-effective, user-friendly operation.

The VEGAPULS 69 radar sensor can also be used to record level measurements in containers with complex shapes and internal fixtures, including:

  • High silos
  • Segmented containers
  • Containers with mixing systems
  • Silos with reinforcing struts

In order to enable operators to optimally align of the sensor on the silo, we offer the VEGA App.

Personnel can use the app on their smartphone to quickly and efficiently align the sensor.
