Silo Inventory

The silo inventory system based on weight

SiloWeigh tells you the contents of any silo, feed bin, tank or storage vessel as a continuous inventory value. Better than silo level measurement, SiloWeigh measures the actual weight of the vessel and contents to give a true picture of the amount on hand, and it costs less than the best level sensors.

The accurate inventory system for silos, bins, tanks and storage vessels that you can install yourself

Identify and stop delivery shortages

SiloWeigh gives you the ability to check every delivery, even weeks ago, against the delivery ticket. Consequently it puts you in command of the situation. You can use SiloWeigh II Pro and SiloWeigh.Net silo and bin weighing systems to measure delivery amounts by use of the history recording feature. It’s not admissible in a court of law but it’s good enough to tackle your supplier or trucker.

SiloWeigh is the only system with an advanced weather filter. This eliminates most of the daily variations due to weather, giving you a more accurate and more stable reading as a result. It doesn’t prevent fast performance either. During fills and fast discharge periods it switches to a faster response to minimize delay. Note that the Basic model does not have this feature.

Never run out of material again

The silo software lets you easily see the levels in your silos, tanks or other vessels. It gives you visual warning at Reorder and Low levels, plus audible warnings if you need them, to prevent loss of production and missed deadlines as a result.

Eliminate the risk of overfilling

You can forget about blown filters and the ensuing environmental hazards. They are a thing of the past. Due to SiloWeigh’s High and Overfill alarms, you see immediately when the levels are exceeded and audible warnings alert the truck operator. You can add a pinch valve also, if you wish to positively prevent an overfill.

L-Strain sensors are temperature compensated. They cancel the effects of the structure’s expansion with temperature while measuring the compression due to load. Typical accuracy ±1 to 2% of full scale when all four legs are gauged. Skirted silos - expect ±5% of full scale

  • Mount the legs on load cells for higher accuracy (0.1%) (see Applications page).

  • It’s an all-weather system. Sensors, wiring and junction boxes meet NEMA-4, IP66. You can set up the dust and splashproof industrial touch screen display system in a convenient indoor location.

  • Replace the cable with radio connection when it’s inconvenient, or for long runs of up to 10 miles.

  • It has no moving parts, giving long life and reliability.

  • Safe installation – no need to climb the silo.
