Pump Monitoring Reduces Costs and Increases Safety
Special pumps made of high-resistance materials are commonly used in the chemical industry. Apart from the expected everyday wear, these pumps are subject to increased strain in the event of dry run or pressure shocks. Monitoring the pump pressure and product influx guarantees long pump life as well as the safety of the entire plant.
Dry Run Protection with the VEGASWING 61
The compact size of the VEGASWING 61 level switch and the tuning fork length of only 40 mm (1.57 in) allow it to be implemented on pipelines with no problem. This universal sensor delivers a clear switching signal in any liquid and thus avoids dangerous overheating of pumps. The VEGASWING 61 fulfills the SIL 2 requirements.
Pump Pressure Measurement with the VEGABAR 52
The VEGABAR 52 pressure transmitter is especially suitable for use in pipelines because of the high load resistance of its CERTEC® ceramic measuring cell. Pressure or vacuum shocks are easily absorbed by the mechanical construction of the sensor. To fulfill the requirements of the chemical industry, process fittings of high-resistance materials are available.
