Medium-sized silos for bulk solids

Level measurement and point level detection in silos

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement and point level detection
Measuring point:
Measuring range up to:
15 m
Fine-grained bulk solids
Process temperature:
-40 … +200 °C
Process pressure:
-1 … +6 bar
Special challenges:
Dust, filling noise, changing media properties


Many different kinds of bulk solids are produced or used as raw materials in the chemical industry. To ensure reliable measurement of the silo contents, several factors must be considered: different bulk densities, abrasive properties, dust generation and the requirements of explosion protection. Application of the right level sensors ensures optimal production planning and reliable logistics for the finished products.

Your benefit

Reliable measurement, independent of media properties and container geometry
Cost effective
Maintenance-free operation
User friendly
Universally applicable for almost all non-abrasive bulk solids
