New nucleonic gauging systems
Published: 29 May 2012 - Joe Bush
Vega has launched its new PROTRAC range of nucleonic gauging systems that are well suited for measuring level, density, interface and mass flow, and are unaffected by high vessel pressures, aggressive media, extreme process temperatures and other process challenges.
The sensors mount externally to the process, and can measure through container walls, with the help of gamma sources. Because all PROTRAC sensors were developed to IEC/EN 61508, VEGA can offer SIL qualified radiometric instruments across all models.
Every PROTRAC model has a detector for the application. For example, the solid rod detector of SOLITRAC is designed especially for level in straight sided vessels. The flexible detector of FIBRETRAC is well suited for level of curved or contoured vessels. The small, compact solid crystal design of density detector MINITRAC is suitable for mounting across pipes. The latest generation electronics keep source activity levels to a minimum, and this also means existing sources can have their life span extended, delaying disposal and saving costs.
PROTRAC sensors incorporate the plics modular system with integrated Asset Management tools. They use the established FDT/DTM software for set-up, and have EDD capability, optional stainless steel housings, backlit integrated indicators and ATEX.
