Volume measurement solution for segmented silos

Products 3D scanner BinMaster measurement silos

Operations burdened with managing inventory in pie-shaped segments of silos now have a solution that provides what is said to be very accurate volume data.

New firmware for the 3DLevelScanner acoustic sensor from BinMaster measures and models the topography of material contained in these unusually-shaped wedges, then applies the measured distances to a 3D model of vessel dimensions and converts it to the volume measurement.

Other measurement sensors, such as non-contact radar, guided wave radar or weight and cable style sensors measure only a single distance in these formidably-shaped segments.

The same 3DLevel Scanner can be used for either segmented or round silos.
