UK Paper’s fibre plant at Kemsley now uses Vega’s ceramic pressure sensors for a variety of applications in the stock preparation area. Measurement problems can be created by the fibrous nature of the slurries, which can contain solid foreign objects.

Instruments with good abrasion resistance, combined with high measurement stability and reliability, are required here.

Typical measurements include screen and filter pressures, chest levels – including pulpers – and stock line pressures.

Ceramic sensors have good resistance to abrasion, and a dry sensor cell ensures good output stability, even with the more difficult low pressure applications. The flush diaphragm construction of the model 24 is well suited to paper stock applications, whether for pipe or vessel mounting.

Vega instruments are also used for sensing steam pressure, using a simple pigtail impulse pipe.
