Courtesy: BinMasterThe BinMaster 3DLevelScanner series is designed to provide continuous, non-contact level measurement using dust penetrating technology to provide unsurpassed bin volume accuracy. It measures multiple points within the bin and can be used in a variety of industries that have tanks, silos, domes, warehouses, open bins and piles. Its 3D mapping capabilities provide a visual representation of bin contents, detecting irregular material surfaces, cone up or down conditions, as well as sidewall buildup. It is self-cleaning, requires minimal maintenance and features a variety of extensions and configurations to allow it to be used in a wide range of challenging applications.

There are different models of the 3DLevelScanner to address variations in silo size and volume accuracy. For very large bins, a multiple scanner system can provide a very high level of accuracy in dusty environments where the material surface is irregular. There are also scanners for high temperature applications and with a Teflon coating to prevent buildup of material on the sensor. For level applications, the RL acoustic level sensor is an option for non-contact level sensing in high dust.

MultiVision software is designed for operations that have multiple scanners for viewing all vessels in a single screen. Other options include mounting flanges, angled mounting adapters, and neck extensions for applications where the sensor must be extended below the structure.
