Special waste treatment

Special waste treatment

Storage tanks for intermediate storage

The treatment of special waste is carried out through different chemical and thermal processes. So that these processes can be operated continuously, defined quantities of special waste, varnishes, paints and thinners are buffered in tanks up to 15 m high. Agitators in the tanks prevent sedimentation and clumping together of fibrous materials and pigments at the bottom of the tanks. A reliable level measurement guarantees uninterrupted processes in waste treatment.

Level measurement with VEGAPULS 62

The radar sensor VEGAPULS 62 is the ideal device for this level measurement. The radar sensor operates completely unaffected by the vapours from the waste and delivers exact measuring results even when the agitators are in motion.

Level detection with VEGACAP 64

Being highly insensitive to buildup, capacitive compact level switches have proven to be a good solution for level detection in the area of varnishes and paints. That’s why VEGACAP 64 is used here as overfill protection in compliance with the Water Resource Act, and as dry run protection for the agitators and the discharge pump.
