The VEGAPOINT Series of ultra-compact capacitive limit switches are your best option for liquid detection. This series can be very easily installed in a number of different applications, including the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. The low-cost, low power consumption designs of the VEGAPOINT Series products provide high-end results.
- High plant availability through non-contact measurement
- Exact measurement results independent of medium properties and process conditions
- Maintenance-free operation due to non-contact 80 GHz radar technology
Point Level Detection
Various methods are used to replenish the demineralised water with the minerals required in healthy drinking water. One method is to pass the water through a container filled with limestone, enriching it with mineral substances. The filling of the container is monitored with the help of a point level switch.
Approved materials according to FDA and EC 1935/2004 regulations as well as country-specific approvals
The yeast is grown and stored in small storage tanks at an optimal temperature, then added to the fermentation tanks as required. To ensure ideal storage, the minimum and maximum limit levels as well as the pressure in the tank are monitored.
Condenser pressure and point level measurement
In the condenser, potable water evaporated as steam and condensed to form pure, clean water . Inside the condenser there is a cooling system that cools the steam to make it condense. The feed of cooling liquid is monitored in the pipeline. Point level detection ensures that sufficient condensate is present to prevent steam from directly entering the circulation reservoir.
Frequently Asked Questions
A limit switch is an actuator connected to an electrical switch. When a limit switch is installed in a liquid tank and the liquid makes contact with the actuator, an electrical connection is made, and the switch is turned on/off.
Capacitive limit switches are used in liquid applications, such as a yeast storage container or mineralization tank.
They are very straightforward and flexible and can be easily installed into virtually any liquid application. Capacitive level sensors also provide accurate, repeatable information, while being low power consumption devices.
This depends on your specific application. With a radar sensor, you're able to continuously monitor the amount of liquid in a given tank. Whereas a capacitive limit switch will only trigger when the liquid comes into contact with the sensor. If your application requires constant updates on liquid level, a radar sensor would be a better option. If you only need to know when a liquid has reach a certain level, a capacitive limit switch is a good option.
