The 3DLevelScanner HE from BinMaster Level Controls, Lincoln, NE, is a dust-penetrating radar level scanner that is designed for use in storage silos containing challenging materials such as clinker, alumina, and fly ash. Depending on the diameter and height of the silo and desired level of volume accuracy, you can mount one or more sensors on the top of the silo. Each sensor sends pulses in a 70° beam angle, taking multiple measurements from the material surface and continually mapping the material surface to detect changes in level, to account for uneven surface topography, and to calculate a volume estimate for the silo contents. Software reports the lowest and highest points detected and the average level based on a weighted average of all measurements.
