Level measurement and point level detection in large storage silos

Level measurement and point level detection in large storage silos

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement and point level detection
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
40 m
Mineral rock, gravel and stone powder
Process temperature:
-40 … +50 °C
Process pressure:
0 … 0 bar
Special challenges:
Extreme dust generation, filling noise


To ensure continuous production, even if material production is interrupted, the raw materials are stored in large bunkers with heights of over 30 m and diameters of up to 20 m. The large dimensions of the silos require the filling and emptying to take place at multiple points. Uniform filling and emptying of the bunkers is achieved through level measurement at various points in the bunker.

Your benefit

Reliable measurement even in dusty and noisy environments
Cost effective
Optimal filling of the silos
User friendly
Maintenance-free operation
