Application

The different varieties of flour are most often stored in tall silos with very narrow chambers. Filling takes place regularly and is done pneumatically from the top. In order to produce the desired blend of different varieties at any time, a reliable level measurement in the individual silos is essential, even during filling. The process challenges include dust generation, strong air movement and a poorly reflecting product surface.
