Filling level measurement in silos
Accurate quantity measurement of bulk material or plastic granulate is a decisive factor for the smooth running of production and logistics processes. In order to avoid production downtimes due to a lack of material, the filling levels in the storage silos are therefore detected automatically. Laser distance sensors from Micro-Epsilon impress here with high measurement accuracy. These laser sensors are mounted on the ceiling of the silo and measure continuously down to the silo bottom. The laser distance sensors precisely measure the distance between the sensor and the bulk material or granulate and transmit the measured height to the control system.
