Level Scanner

The 3DLevelScanner HT measures the volume and mapping of the material surface in bins, tanks and silos with high temperatures. This new model of the BinMaster 3DLevelScanner has an operating temperature range of up to 356 F to accommodate high temperatures that may be present when material has been heated in the production process before it is conveyed into storage silos.

The device measures the material level in multiple locations in the vessel and estimates the volume in storage silos containing challenging materials such as clinker, alumina, frac sand and fly ash.

The sensor sends pulses in a 70-degree beam angle; taking multiple measurements from the material surface and continually mapping the material surface to detect changes in level, account for uneven surface topography, and calculate a highly accurate volume estimate for the contents of the silo. The 3DLevelManager software reports the lowest and highest points detected and the average level based upon a weighted average of all of the measurements detected in the bin. For the MV and the MVL models, a colorful graphical representation indicates where high and low spots exist in the silo.
