Silo Weighing

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.


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.
