Grain silo

Level measurement and point level detection in the grain silo

Level measurement and point level detection in the grain silo

Process data

Measuring task:
Level measurement and point level detection
Measuring point:
Silo
Measuring range up to:
20 m
Medium:
Grain
Process temperature:
-40 … +50 °C
Process pressure:
0 … 0 bar
Special challenges:
Strong dust generation during filling, tank geometry, bulk solid surface geometry

Application

Barley is stored in malt houses in silos up to 20 metres high before it is processed into malt for production of beer. Filling the silos generates a lot of dust and the material cone geometry constantly changes during the filling and emptying process. A reliable indication of the level ensures the smooth operation by sending signals corresponding to the level or possible limit levels of the grain.

Your benefit

Reliable
Reliable measurement independent of the medium
Cost effective
Better utilisation of silo capacity and product through reliable measurement
User friendly
Simple calibration
