SiloWeigh for Silos, Tanks and Vessels
Never run out of cement again. Eliminate the risk of overfilling storage vessels. SiloWeigh tells you the contents of any silo, tank or vessel – not as an empty or full signal, or even a percentage full signal based on a level measurement. Better than silo level measurement, SiloWeigh measures the actual weight of the vessel and contents to give a true picture of the amount on hand – and it costs little more than a silo level sensor.
All three sensors (can be near unlimited) use high quality foil strain gauges, as used in high-accuracy load cells, to give superior stability and accuracy. SiloWeigh is temperature compensated by matching the sensors to the metal of the legs. We have demonstrated typical accuracies of ±1 to 2% of full scale when all four legs are gauged. It is possible to gauge only half the legs but we do not recommend it since wide variations in accuracy are possible.
All-weather. Sensors, wiring and junction boxes are carefully weatherproofed and you can set up the dust and splash proof display system in a convenient indoor location.
Two types of loadcells used for SiloWeigh:
1 – Silex BOLT-ON strain gauge sensors (shown at right), which attach directly to the vessel’s legs, eliminating the need to lift it onto load cells and making it easy to install.
2 – Liquid level sensor allows monitoring of a mix of solids by weight and liquids by level.
