We have specifically developed range of trade approved load cells, weighing assemblies and instrumentation/electronics for accurate measurement during storage, loading or unloading of bulk solids and liquids.
For communication with external systems, several different protocols are available.
By installing a silo, tank, hopper, bin or bunker on top of load cells, the weight of the contents can be determined (in kilograms or tonnes) with a very high accuracy (from approximately 0.1%) and easily passed to external data systems.
Silo, tank, hopper, bin or bunker weighing systems are generally used to determine the amount of material emptied into a truck and/or for inventory management. It is often very important to know the amount of material stored in a silo at any time.
Typical materials that are stored in silos/tanks/hoppers:
- Food and drink ingredients, e.g. wheat, flour, glucose syrup, palm oil, grain, ethanol, fruit juices, edible oils such as olive oil etc.
- Plastic pellets
- Biomass pellets
- Minerals and mined products, e.g. charcoal, sulphur, nickel, copper, iron ore
- Concrete and cement
- And many others…
