Special challenges
Harsh environment, extreme dust generation


Dust-free, closed loading systems are needed for fine aggregates and finished products such as cement. Automated loading of trucks is preferred in the industry and, while the load quantity is determined with a weighing system, it must be ensured that the truck is in the correct place and not overfilled. Reliable point level detection and vehicle positioning shortens loading times, increases throughput and improves the efficiency of the entire system.
