Advanced technology for measuring corrosive materials in silos to provide accurate volume and material proﬁle information.
The 3DLevelScanner HCTM is designed using high performing materials to protect it from the harshest and most corrosive materials and allow it to measure in production and storage of quick lime, ammonia, PTA, oils, salts, salt mines and many other harsh materials and environments.
This has been achieved by using the right protective high performing materials:
- HALAR coating for the mechanical parts
- VITON for the O-rings and rubbers
- Specially coated stainless steel fasteners
This allows the 3DLevelScanner HC to maintain its dust-penetrating ability as well as the ability to measure even materials with low dielectric constant, and its built-in self-cleaning technology that makes it practically maintenance-free.
The 3DLevelScanner HCTM works with many materials on the USAs DOT class 8 material list, such as:
- Acetic Acid
- Ammonium Hydroxide
- Benzene and PTA
- Calcium Hydroxide and Quick Lime
- Hydrochloric Acid
- Methylene Chloride
- Nitric Acid
- Potassium Hydroxide
- Sodium Chlorite
- Sodium Hypochlorite
- Sulfuric Acid
3DLevelScanner HC includes an array of three antennas that generate low-frequency acoustic signals and receive echo signals from the silos contents. Using three antennas provides a detailed view of the materials surface, allowing high accuracy volume measurements and a 3D representation of material formation. Surface visualization can be shared by remote computer in the control room.
The 3DLevelScanner HC is a continuous measurement device that can be connected to any PLC or SCADA system, making it the ultimate control system that allows managers to see in real time what is actually going on inside the silo.
