Vibrating Level Switch Reliable Switching Down to -196 °C

| Editor: Dr. Jörg Kempf

Vega has extended its product portfolio by adding a vibrating level switch for extreme temperatures: Vegaswing 66, especially suitable for cryogenic liquids, switches reliably in process temperatures down to -196 °C.

The new Vegaswing 66 delivers performance capability with impressive values: it switches reliably at temperatures from -196 to 450 °C and pressures from vacuum to 160 bar. This means users can benefit from the technical advantages of the vibrating level switch and the completely self-monitoring sensor, even in ultra-low temperature applications.

This offers increased protection and safety for gas liquefaction plants and liquefied gas tanks used for processing, transporting or storing LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) or liquid nitrogen.

Since the vibrating level switch is virtually independent of medium properties, there are hardly any limitations to its use. Regardless of product density, the sensor switches reliably and reproducibly when a certain level is reached. Calibration with the actual medium is not required for setup. Integrated analysis and monitoring functions qualify the instrument for SIL2 applications.

The instrument has the standard approvals for explosion protection in gases according to Atex and FM, as well as for use on ships and offshore platforms. Additional Vegaswing 66 models — the compact sensor and the version with tube extension up to 6 m — further expand the wide application range.
