Fluctuating product properties as well as varying temperatures and pressures are often experienced in reactor vessels of multi-product plants. Depending on the properties of the raw materials and mixed products, the vessels are made from Hastelloy, stainless steel or are enameled. The vessel sizes vary, according to product volume typically between 0.2 and 16 m3. Specific process components such as stirrers, reaction and distillation vessels or driers and centrifuges are assembled individually for particular reaction processes.
Level Measurement with the VEGAPULS 63
For this application, the non-contact measuring principle of radar is best suited. The level is measured reliably and precisely because the sensor is not influenced by process conditions such as vacuum, gauge pressure or temperature. The antenna and the sealing face consist of highly resistant PTFE, therefore making it suitable for use in multi-product plants.
Measuring Process Pressure with the VEGABAR 51
The VEGABAR 51 pressure transducer is particularly suitable for the reliable measurement of process pressure. High overload and vacuum resistance as well as temperature resistance of up to 752°F (400°C) guarantee a reliable level measurement. Specifically adapted diaphragm and flange materials are corrosion resistant, even in aggressive products.
