Application

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