Application

Flour and sugar are the basic ingredients for many food products and stored in silos up to 20 metres high. The filling and emptying is often performed by pneumatic systems that transport the media from the large external silos and deposit them in smaller holding vessels for further processing. The filling and emptying processes are controlled by reliable level measurement. Pressure monitoring is also needed in the pneumatic conveying pipelines.
