CUTTING-edge technology in level instrumentation has arrived at one of the area's leading training organisations.
Vega, the level and pressure instrumentation manufacturer, has installed its latest equipment on the training facility process plant at Catch.
The 80 GHz radar sensor, VegaPuls64, which is used to measure the level of bulk liquid containers, including tanks, vessels and reactors, was part of an upgrade of Catch's two reactors and the intermediate bulk container loading area.
The latest technology uses a higher transmitting frequency of 80 GHz, with precise focusing for accuracy, resulting in an accurate level measurement reading.
The VegaPuls series is highly effective in challenging process conditions and is a robust performer even with condensation and build up.

The upgrade of instrumentation technology keeps the Stallingborough beacon plant ahead with the latest trends and mirrors what is currently being used in the industry.
The devices also include a new Bluetooth communications app for easy set up and monitoring on the plant.
Following a successful installation on the plant, Vega delivered a seminar to introduce the capabilities of the VegaPuls 80 GHz Technology.
On-site apprentices and local customers of Vega were introduced to the benefits of using the latest technology – both in the training room and on the process plant.
This is the second successful event that Vega has hosted at Catch.
In February delegates and apprentices greeted the huge US-style VegaTruck, when it pulled into Kiln Lane.
It unveiled a mobile classroom offering an introduction to industrial instrumentation.
The team at HCF said it was delighted to welcome Vega back, with more events planned for the future.
