VEGAWAVE Vibrating Tuning Fork for Bulk Solids

VEGAWAVE Vibrating Tuning Fork for Bulk Solids.  When immersed in the bulk solid, the vibration is dampened. This dampened signal is converted by the electronics to a switching command, often used for over-fill protection.
The design of the VEGAWAVE makes it insensitive to build up. Therefore  it is the ideal sensor for powders and fine-grained products.

 

Highly reliable and suitable for use in safety-critical applications up to SIL2.Typical applications are products such as flour, cement and sand as well as fine-grained bulk solids such as plastic granules, grit and styrofoam.

 

The VEGAWAVE vibrating level switch is available in several different designs, as follows…

 

– VEGAWAVE 61:  Standard industrial model (ATEX/ SIL)
– VEGAWAVE 62:  Suspension cable up to 80m
– VEGAWAVE 63:  Extension tube up to 6m

VEGAWAVE Vibrating Tuning Fork for Bulk Solids.  When immersed in the bulk solid, the vibration is dampened. This dampened signal is converted by the electronics to a switching command, often used for over-fill protection.
The design of the VEGAWAVE makes it insensitive to build up. Therefore  it is the ideal sensor for powders and fine-grained products.
The VEGAWAVE is very easy to set up and set-point can be adjusted without the medium.

Highly reliable and suitable for use in safety-critical applications up to SIL2.Typical applications are products such as flour, cement and sand as well as fine-grained bulk solids such as plastic granules, grit and styrofoam.

 

The VEGAWAVE vibrating level switch is available in several different designs, as follows…

 

  • VEGAWAVE 61:  Industrial design, available in several different housing materials with various threaded and flanged connection options. Relay contacts and ATEX options available.
  • VEGAWAVE 62: Generally as the VEGAWAVE61, but with suspension cable mounting, allowing bulk sold measurement up to 80m.
  • VEGAWAVE 63: Generally as VEGAWAVE61, but with tube extension up to 6m.
