Silo Patrol® Cable-Based Level Sensor
Available from Monitor Technologies LLC
Monitor Technologies’ SiloPatrol® SE smart cable-based level sensors are effectively utilized to improve inventory control of powder and bulk solids. The sensors measure the inventory level automatically and on-demand without the need for your operator or plant personnel to climb silos, which helps to increase plant safety. The smart cabled-based sensors automatically lower a weight & cable into the silo until it contacts the material surface. Upon contact the weight & cable system is immediately retracted and the measurement is fed to the plant control system or operator interface. These sensors are easy to install and only need a periodic inspection. Once the material level measurement is obtained, a variety of operator interface devices are available to calculate and display material volume, weight and more. A PC-based software package, called Silo Track, is also available that can automate report generation, send emails to suppliers or corporate locations and allow remote viewing of material level inventory.
The SiloPatrol SE uses time-proven weight and cable techniques and combines Hall Effect sensor technology, state-of-the-art sealed bi-directional optical sensing, a split-compartment enclosure design, isolated outputs, SMT (surface mount electronic technology) and other valuable features to produce a rugged, reliable and accurate measuring system designed for the harshest and most dynamic conditions.
