The VEGABAR 86 is a submersible pressure transmitter for pressure and level measurements of liquids and viscous products in the chemical, food processing and pharmaceutical industry. The VEGABAR 86 offers the possibility to detect even smallest measuring ranges from 0.1 bar. The VEGABAR 86 is a submersible pressure transmitter for level measurement in wells, basins and open vessels. Thanks to the flexibility through different cable and tube versions, VEGABAR 86 can be used in various applications. The simple connection of VEGABAR series 80 sensors as electronic differential pressure opens new possibilities for the measurement of differential pressures.

Application area

For level measurement in wells, basins and open tanks. Maximum sensor length: Cable 250 m, tube 6 m. Can be combined with any other sensor of VEGABAR Series 80 for electronic differential pressure measurement.

Your benefit

  • Low maintenance costs thanks to wear-free ceramic measuring cell
  • High plant availability through maximum overload and vacuum resistance of the ceramic measuring cell
  • Self-cleaning effect through front-flush installation

Submersible pressure transmitter for level measurement of water, acids and alkalis
