Original Press Release:

SiloPatrol® Provides Level Measurement for Solid / Water Interface Applications

Elburn, IL – The SiloPatrol® “smart” plumb bob level sensor from Monitor Technologies can be equipped with an optional stainless steel interface style plumb bob in order to provide level measurement for settled solids in a blanket of water. The interface style plumb bob will penetrate through the water, make contact with the surface of the solid material and then retract to provide a level measurement. Examples of material applications that have been successful include corn, rice, potatoes, sand, salt and similar items that are covered by a layer of water. Interface with other liquids besides water may also be possible. Please contact Monitor regarding specific applications.

The SiloPatrol® uses time-proven weight and cable techniques and combines Hall Effect sensor technology, state-of-the-art sealed bi-directional optical sensing, a split-compartment enclosure design, isolated outputs, SMT (surface mount electronic technology) and other valuable features to produce a rugged, reliable and accurate measuring system designed for the harshest and most dynamic conditions. The SiloPatrol sensor is easy to install and is also virtually maintenance free, requiring only a periodic inspection usually once or twice per year. In addition, a variety of operator interface devices and software, like SiloTrack software, are available to calculate and display material level inventory data.
