Wood chip silo level measurement

Wood chip silo level measurement

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement
Measuring point:
Silo
Measuring range up to:
25 m
Medium:
Wood chips
Process temperature:
+5 … +50 °C
Process pressure:
0 … 0 bar
Special challenges:
Material cones, huge amounts of dust and bridging in the silo

Application

The wood chips are transferred via conveyor belts to storage silos up to 25 m high and stored there temporarily for further processing. The silos are filled and emptied in batches. During the process, large amounts of dust are generated, material cones and bridges form, which collapse during emptying. Reliable level measurement is needed here to ensure supplies for downstream processes and facilitate logistics planning.

Your benefit

Reliable
Reliable continuous measurement, even during filling
Cost effective
Optimal container volume utilization
User friendly
Volume display and sensor adjustment in a convenient location
