Most silos on legs and skirted silos use the L-Strain sensor but SiloWeigh can use pressure sensors to measure liquid level, load cells for high accuracy and weldable gauges for special applications.

L-Strain, advanced weight sensor

Gives accurate measurement on silo leg or skirt with little change as the structure heats and cools.  A stress sensing section measures the compression due to weight and a compensating section corrects the errors due to thermal expansion in the structure.

Weight sensor can be applied to steel, aluminum and stainless structures . . . Read more

The L-Strain weight sensor measures the stress in any metal structure and translates this into vessel weight

Liquid level sensor

Allows SiloWeigh to be used on tanks.  The combination of a pressure sensor and SiloWeigh indicator can show either the level in the tank or the volume in gallons, liters etc. if the tank is symmetrical in the vertical direction.  Accuracy is excellent.

Attach to a T-adapter in the main or spare outlet . . . Read more

A pressure sensor measures level in tanks, converted to volume in liters or gallons

Load cells for highest accuracy

To give the ultimate in accuracy, load cells, the ultimate weight sensors, are fitted under the silo or vessel.  Shown here is a shear beam load cell assembly supporting the leg of an agricultural type silo.

When accuracy is more important than minimizing cost . . . Read more

Load cell is the ultimate weight sensor, giving accuracy of better than 0.1%

Weldable gauges

For special applications, the original SiloWeigh weight sensor can be applied when bolt-on sensors cannot be used because of lack of room or other physical limitations.

These sensors require surface preparation for their application . . . Read more

weight sensor is welded onto the structure to measure the stress, then converted to weight in the indicator
