Less than nine years after introducing the VEGAPULS 68 non contact radar sensor for bulk solids, VEGA has delivered the 100,000th sensor.
The bulk solids radar instrument – a VEGAPULS SR68 – went to Bühler in Switzerland, where it is being used for level measurement in a 25m-high cement silo.
"This production milestone carries forward the success story of radar level sensors in process automation. Today, they are the all-round level transmitter for liquids and bulk solids," commented Günter Kech, managing director. "Radar technology is on a success trajectory and we will ensure that it stays there by even further simplifying it for level measurement of bulk solids in future."
