Application Considerations for Continuous Level and Inventory Monitoring of Powder and Bulk Solids
Continuous level measurement is about one thing, e.g. answering the question "how much stuff do I have". There are many applications where you need to know how much material is in a bin, silo or other vessel type. Usually the desired engineering unit is expressed in terms of volume or weight. "Measuring" volume or weight is not always the most practical approach, sometimes it isn't even viable. Take those silos you have, how do you weigh the ingredients if the silos weren't installed with load systems? Not an easy or inexpensive question to answer. So what do we do? This is where continuous level measurement sensors and systems come into play and offer a viable and cost effective approach.
The purpose of this white paper is to discuss and inform about the application considerations when you need to measure the level of material continuously or simply determine on a continuous basis how much stuff you have in your vessels.
