VEGA Sensors: Precision and Reliability in Grappa and Tartaric Acid Production

The art of grappa distillation requires a combination of tradition, experience, and cutting-edge technology. A renowned Italian grappa producer has adopted VEGA sensors to ensure maximum precision and reliability in the production process, particularly in the production of tartaric acid, a fundamental component of grappa.

The Role of Tartaric Acid Tartaric acid, naturally present in grape skins, is used in various sectors, from the confectionery industry to winemaking, from pharmaceuticals to construction. The producer, committed to an integrated and sustainable processing cycle, also produces natural tartaric acid, returning the elements used in the process to the soil and generating energy from renewable sources.

The Challenge of Level Measurement The production of tartaric acid involves several phases, including increasing the concentration of the solution in vacuum plants. In this phase, precise level measurement is crucial to ensure process control and achieve the desired concentration. However, traditional differential pressure measurement methods have proven to be inaccurate and prone to errors due to temperature variations and crystal build-up.

The Solution: VEGABAR 82 Sensors To overcome these challenges, the company has adopted VEGABAR 82 sensors with oil-free ceramic measuring cells. This technology offers numerous advantages:

  • Precision and reliability: The ceramic measuring cell ensures stable and long-term measurements, regardless of ambient temperature and without drift.
  • Reduced maintenance: The ceramic measuring cell does not require cleaning or maintenance, reducing downtime.
  • Ease of installation and use: VEGABAR 82 sensors are easy to install and calibrate, thanks to the intuitive plics® user interface.

Positive Results The adoption of VEGABAR 82 sensors has led to significant results in the tartaric acid production process:

  • Precise and stable level measurement: The sensors guarantee accurate control of the concentration process, ensuring the quality of the final product.
  • Reduced downtime: The reduced maintenance of the sensors increases the efficiency of the production process.
  • Ease of use: The intuitive user interface simplifies the use of the sensors and staff training.

A Long-Term Commitment to VEGA Technology The company has been using VEGA radar measuring instruments for over 15 years in various applications, demonstrating a long-term commitment to adopting advanced technologies to ensure the quality of its products. The adoption of VEGABAR 82 sensors represents a further step in this direction, confirming the importance of technological innovation in the distillation sector.
