Sensori installati nei serbatoi di produzione e stoccaggio misurano il livello e la pressione.

VOG Products is a fruit processing company with headquarters in Laives, Italy. The business is founded upon high quality, by focussing on hygiene, discipline and a commitment to setting new standards with regard to quality, service and know-how.

Today more than 250 VEGA sensors are installed in the company. They control level and pressure in the production and storage tanks. The products are pasteurised and later stored under sterile conditions in the company’s cellars. VEGA sensors monitor the level not only during the production and pasteurisation phases, but also during the storage phase in sterile drums. The most commonly used sensor type is VEGABAR 83 with a Profibus system. This process pressure transmitter is ideal for level and pressure measurement of liquids and viscous products under high process pressure. Thanks to its METEC® metallic measuring cell, the instrument delivers highly accurate measuring results, even under vacuum. All sensors have to be very resistant chemically, as the tanks are regularly cleaned with caustic soda and peroxide. The sensors also require food industry approval.

Non-contact radar level measurement for strict hygienic requirements
Sensors of type VEGAPULS 63 were also installed. This radar level sensor is well qualified for continuous level measurement of liquids. The encapsulated antenna system of VEGAPULS 63 protects against contamination and guarantees continuous, maintenance-free operation. Its front-flush mounting also ensures optimum cleaning in applications with rigorous hygienic requirements. VEGAPULS 64 and VEGABAR 82, which were launched in 2016, are also now being increasingly used in the plant.. VEGAPULS 64 is another radar level measuring instrument ideally suited for the food industry thanks to its non-contact measuring method.

Process pressure transmitters with metallic measuring cells are also used a lot in this industry. These have an FDA-compliant oil filling, but only a thin process diaphragm and very low overload resistance. Diaphragm damage can thus occur relatively easily and is often not immediately detected. The ceramic CERTEC® measuring cell of VEGABAR 82, on the other hand, is dry and has a robust process diaphragm and very high overload resistance. This means maximum protection against process-related diaphragm damage and thus maximum hygienic reliability.
