Many devices are available on the market today for detecting the level of materials in bins, tanks and silos. However, for calculating what’s in inventory sometimes level data just isn’t enough. To estimate the amount of material on hand and the dollar value of that inventory, a single measurement point might not be enough data to calculate an accurate volume estimate.

Due to their tendency to form irregular topography in the silo, this can be especially true in powders and solids because many don’t tend to flow freely. If inventory volume is based upon a single measurement from a single point in the silo, the volume estimate has the potential of being very inaccurate. For accurate "binventory" multiple point measurement may be the best solution.

Discover whether level or volume are what your operation needs and about the sensors that can help you meet your operational goals.
