Silo and Tank Weight
Never run out of product again. Eliminate the risk of overfilling storage vessels. SiloWeigh tells you the contents of any silo, tank or vessel - not as an empty or full signal, or even a percentage full signal based on a level measurement. Better than silo level measurement, SiloWeigh measures the actual weight of the vessel and contents to give a true picture of the amount on hand - and it costs little more than a silo level sensor.
All three sensors use high quality metal foil strain gauges, as used in high-accuracy load cells, to give superior stability and accuracy. SiloWeigh is temperature compensated by matching the sensors to the metal of the legs. We have demonstrated typical accuracies of ±1 to 2% of full scale when all four legs are gauged. It is possible to gauge only half the legs but we do not recommend it since wide variations in accuracy are possible.
All-weather. Sensors, wiring and junction boxes are carefully weatherproofed and you can set up the dust and spashproof display system in a convenient indoor location.
Whether you need a silo level meter, a tank level monitor or silo inventory control, SiloWeigh is the most accurate system.
