It is really hard to measure the level of aggressive, hot, frozen, and non-free-flowing or non-self-leveling materials. Sometimes, traditional contact or non-contact level measurement products simply don't work well, or can't be used at all. When it comes to managing the inventory of high-value solids, liquids and gases, gravimetric level control (weighing the tank and subtracting the tare) offers inherent flexibility with good accuracy.
Mettler-Toledo has published a white paper, “Inventory Control: Tank and Silo Weighing,” which explores the many benefits of tank and silo weighing as well as gravimetric level control.
The white paper also details the advantages of gravimetric control, including highly effective inventory management and production flexibility. It explains how weigh modules can easily convert nearly any tank, hopper or silo into a scale, as well as looking at how tank scale installation impacts accuracy and safety. Finally, it describes the importance of weighing terminals and transmitters to tank and silo weighing and provides important maintenance information, explaining the predictive maintenance features on certain weighing equipment.
This is important because well-designed, properly installed systems guarantee a long life. The white paper further explains the benefits of tank and silo weighing and provides expert advice on optimizing these systems.
