Minimum effort, maximum efficiency: VEGAPOINT 24 level switches master sticky and viscous substances

Many food and pharmaceutical products have a distinctive texture that melts-in-your-mouth, for example, some processed cheeses, grainy like peeling cream or tough, sticky, crunchy and soft

The demands on the level measurement technology, used to produce these substances, increases depending on the consistency.

VEGA has developed the new front-flush level switch VEGAPOINT 24, especially for use with very sticky, viscous or abrasive products. Its focus is on the greatest possible robustness. Even with the strongest buildup, it reliably detects the level of coverage and indicates it with a coloured illuminated ring that is visible from afar.

Runs perfectly when it lights up

VEGAPOINT 24 has a real plug-and-play sensor, and it can be installed very easily in just a few simple steps. Flexible production systems, with frequent and fast product changes, benefit from the fact that it detects all media with the help of the default setting, without adjustment. Extended functions, such as interface detection, or foam blanking, can be configured easily.

Only metal in the tank

"With this device, we are specifically targeting the beverage, food and pharmaceutical sectors. Here, mixing and conveying are all about efficiency and safety, even with demanding liquids and bulk solids like molasses or nut-nougat cream," explains Volker Allgaier, product manager at VEGA.

Especially the front-flush design of VEGAPOINT 24 ensures universal application possibilities. “Even cleaning pigs work safely alongside the flat measuring tip," Allgaier emphasises, “and the measuring tip also copes with sandblasting. This is because there is only metal in the tank." "Compared to plastic," he concludes, "extensive tests have shown an extended service life by a factor of 4."

Fits like a glove

Users achieve optimum visibility of their processes with the new VEGAPOINT 24. The relationship between durability and low life cycle costs is groundbreaking. The decisive factor, however, is flexibility of use; with its versatile process fittings and adaptors, the level switch fits like a glove - even in already existing systems.
