Understanding how much product is being stored, shipped or sold is often vital to ensuring operations are safe and profitable, especially when handling bulk materials.

The technology used to handle this measurement has come a long way since the humble scale, becoming more advanced, accurate and automated.

VEGA has been in the business of measurement for more than 60 years, operating across 80 companies. Its primary function in industry is to provide level and pressure measurement technology for use across a variety of sectors using a range of different technologies.

To connect with potential customers and support the local bulk handling industry, VEGA Australia will be sponsoring and exhibiting at the Australian Bulk Handling Expo (BULK2021), from 8 – 10 September 2021 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Alex Mazor, VEGA Australia’s Marketing Manager, says the team is excited to be exhibit several products, including Bluetooth technologies and working examples throughout the event.

“VEGA will host discussions on the various approvals available and present the inventory management integrations available for level data and monitoring,” he says.

“Some of the benefits of these integrations include better transparency, simplified administration and keeps data information securely within a customer’s system.”

VEGA Australia provides guided radar measurement which are used to improve measurement performance. Large sensor bandwidth produces very reliable echo signals, which enables a significant increase in measurement accuracy, even at close range.

The use of new antenna technologies for the 80 gigahertz frequency range has assisted in reducing the interfering signals at close range – resulting in significantly higher measurement reliability right in front of the antenna.

Mazor says this means accurate radar technology can be used in very small vessels to provide non-contact, hygienic and wear-free measurements.

“Furthermore, VEGA Australia also offers point level measurement with vibrating level switches – a technology where a rod or a fork is set vibrating. When the vibrating probe comes into contact with the medium, the vibration changes and the vibrating level switch outputs a switching command,” he says.

Vibrating level switches are used as overfill protection devices or low-level indicators in liquids as well as in granular and powdery bulk solids. This allows for easy installation, setup, and commissioning without a medium and reliable point level measurement – independent of installation position, pressure, temperature, foam, viscosity, and grain size.

Pressure is another area that the company specialises in. VEGA Australia measures process and differential pressure, level, volume, density, or mass flow through a variety of metal or ceramic cell pressure transmitters.

Mazor says the company is proud to support BULK2021, as the event supports the broader Australian industry.

“BULK2021 is going to be a huge show and we’re all excited to boost our company’s profile through it. There’s a real opportunity here to develop a deeper understanding of the market while helping to grow the bulk handling sector through our latest innovations which are geared towards this industry.”
