BinMaster: New Measurement Solution for Segmented Silos

Lincoln (NE), USA — Operations burdened with managing inventory in pie-shaped segments of silos now have a solution that provides very accurate volume data—thanks to new firmware for the BinMaster 3DLevelScanner acoustic sensor. The 3DLevelScanner measures and models the topography of material contained in these unusually-shaped wedges. The newest firmware then applies the measured distances to a 3D model of vessel dimensions and converts it to a highly accurate volume measurement.
