Silo Measurement

  |  
Application Summary
Measuring the contents of any industrial tank, silo, or hopper requires a robust and precise system. Utilizing multiple high-capacity sensors in conjunction with powerful instrumentation can make for an effective platform.
Products in Use
Four LCF Series Pancake Load Cells paired with Instrumentation (IAC200 2–4 Channel Summing Junction Box, IPM650, IHH500, or USB Solutions). View Product Details
Load Cell - Silo Measurement
How it Works
  1. Four LCF Series Pancake Load Cells have been installed at the base of the posts of this silo.
  2. Depending on the operator's preference, two means of instrumentation can be used to retrieve the measurement data of the silo's contents.
  3. The first method is to use FUTEK’s USB Solutions. Each LCF Series Pancake Load Cell is paired to a USB Module that can stream live data onto a PC utilizing FUTEK’s SENSIT Test and Measurement Software.
  4. The second method is to connect each LCF Series Pancake Load Cell to FUTEK’s IAC200 2–4 Channel Summing Junction Box, which will gather the collective load of each load cell and then stream that output to a display (IHH500 or IPM650).
  5. These methods can also be automated to sound an alarm or send a notification when the weight of the silo reaches a specific mass.
