SiloWeigh bin level indication system

Features & Benefits

Identify and stop delivery shortages. In addition, save money on refill transport through better scheduling.  Continuous level measurement and inventory by weight gives you the ability to check every delivery, even weeks ago, against the delivery ticket.  Consequently it puts you in command of the situation.

  • History trend graphs for any silo, tank or vessel in the company.
  • In addition, compare delivery amounts with truck weight tickets.
  • Viewable on computer, Ipad, Iphone, Android and Blackberry phones.
  • Unlimited number of bins, silos or vessels.  This is especially relevant to companies with many locations, who can see all on one screen.
  • The only silo level and inventory system that measures divided silos and shared frame silos; no other manufacturer has these silo algorithms.

SiloWeigh.Net shows all silo and bin level indications locally on network computers and through the Internet

  • Visual warning alarms at High and Overfill levels, hence preventing blown filters and subsequent environmental issues.
  • Symbols change color at alarm levels.
  • Hard-wired alarms can connect to horns and lights to warn filling operator.
  • In addition, pinch-off valves can positively halt the filling operation.
  • Silo software alarm log at plant and company level.

SiloWeigh II Pro can be displayed on any local computer or by WiFi on any local phone or tablet

  • Watch the continuous level measurement remotely on your phone, tablet or computer.  Especially relevant to people on the move.
  • Special silo software removes weather-induced instability but reacts instantly to real weight changes; no other manufacturer offers this but without it, you will see errors of 20% to 50% lasting several hours.
  • Email silo level alerts and refill order generation (SiloWeigh.Net).
  • Avoids forgetting to order material, gives peace of mind as a result.
  • In addition, saves money through better truck scheduling.
  • Markets include grain elevators, animal feed mills, flour mills, explosives and blasting supplies. Also power stations, water treatment plants and many others, as well as these examples.  Replace your 3D radar sensors for better accuracy.
“This plant is the only one across Canada that has never run out of material or had a silo spill since SiloWeigh.Net was installed in 2015” says Barry Metzner, manager, Lafarge-Holcim, Greater Vancouver, BC, Canada area, July 2018
Best service in the business” says Greg Roache of Gainey’s Concrete Products. May 2017

Installing silo level indicator in a Dubai concrete plant

Customers & Applications

Recent examples of customers in the concrete, blasting, farming, flour milling and bulk materials industries:

  • Deewan Equipment in Dubai has installed hundreds of SiloWeigh silo and bin level indicator systems throughout the U.A.E. over the last 12 years, replacing some 3D radar sensors.  As a result, they are in use in most of the ready-mix plants in Dubai and surrounding Emirates. They also use SiloWeigh with hydrostatic level sensors to measure levels in admixture tanks.
  • Lafarge Canada, a subsidiary of Lafarge-Holcim, in Port Mann BC, installed SiloWeigh.Net on the plant’s silos in 2015 and because of its success, compared with 3D and guided wave level transmitters, they have extended it to all Greater Vancouver plants.
  • Adams Oldcastle has SiloWeigh II silo inventory system installed in fifteen of their precast concrete plants on the U.S. Eastern Seaboard in 2017 and early 2018.  They agree that it beats 3D radar level sensing and continuous level sensors.

Silo weighing system replaces silo level indicators for blasting supplies at Peabody's NARM open pit coal mine

  • Dyno Nobel installed SiloWeigh.Net at Peabody’s NARM facility in Wyoming, one of the largest coal mines in the U.S., in 2016.  25 silos in 8 groups, filled with blasting materials, are scattered across 100 square miles of territory.  They are powered by solar arrays and networked to a central reporting computer by nine radios.
  • Alpha Dyno Nobel of Lincoln CA installed SiloWeigh II on prill and emulsion explosives silos in 2017.

Silo inventory system replaces guided wave radar level at Asmus Egg Farms, Iowa

  • Asmus Egg Farms in Minnesota installed SiloWeigh.Net silo level indicators on their chicken feed bins in 2017.  Similar broiler, egg production, hog and cattle rearing farms abound in almost every country. Almost all of these require some form of silo level and inventory system and they recognize that weight is better than the best continuous laser level sensors and 3D radar systems.
  • La Meunerie Milanese, in Eastern Quebec, installed SiloWeigh.Net silo level indicators on their flour mill silos in 2014.

Silo continuous level measurement system at Baker-Hughes frac sand terminal, Shafter CA

  • Baker-Hughes, the Texas oil giant, uses SiloWeigh.Net silo level indicators and inventory in its Shafter, CA fracking sand terminal.  The inventory in 12 silos of 610 ton are compared with the filling and usage values in their BatchTron control system.  A special silo calculation flags differences.
Inventory control used to be a nightmare.  Since we installed SiloWeigh.Net, it’s a breeze”.  Ray Young, Oldcastle Building Products, Ogden, UT. Installed 2017 with 2 local silos by cable, one 200 ft away, one 1000 ft away and one at 1 mile, all connecting by radio link.
“No complaints at this point.  The system is working great and has helped us identify some significant gaps between what we should be receiving and what we actually did receive”  Chris Allensworth, Nestle, Jonesboro, NC. Nov 2018
