VEGA delivers precise measurement for LNG carriers

VEGA offers one major application in the shipbuilding industry is for LNG carriers. Liquified gas is transported in insulated cargo tanks on LNG carriers at temperature between -20℃ and -196℃. The instrumentation used must be specially designed for these extreme temperatures. Pressure, level and point level of LNG in the cargo tanks must be reliably measured for the transport. In which, VEGAPULS series radar sensors, VEGABAR series hydrostatic pressure transmitters, VEGASWING series vibrating level switches and VEGAFLEX series guided wave radar sensors are all designed for such applications. Considering the extreme conditions of tested media itself and the external environment fluctuation of the processing, VEGA measuring instruments are equipped with robust, oil and seawater-resistant housings and sensor technology. VEGA instruments deliver reliable measurement event at very low temperatures down -200℃, and despite low relative permittivity of the liquified gas the instruments still running precisely, and none affected by adhesive buildup. Since they are tested and certified according to the leading international classification societies, VEGA measuring instruments can be used worldwide, at on-shore as well as offshore facilities and on FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) ships. Service technicians with special offshore training for production platforms also offer the best advice and support on site.
