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.
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.
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.
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.
