Silverson Debuts Conversion App Volume Calculation Tool for Processors

July 31, 2013

Silverson Machines has launched a new app – Silverson Conversion Tools – available in Apple’s App Store. The new app contains a versatile set of conversion and calculation tools suitable for use in almost any process environment.

“We built this free app as a quick reference tool for engineers and operations personnel, so they could easily calculate the volume of any vertical tank, based on varying parameters,” explains Harold Rothman, CEO, Silverson Machines. “Our app even allows users to share their volume calculation results via email with colleagues.”

In addition to the tank volume calculator for determining the volume of most types of cylindrical or rectangular tanks, there are additional conversion tools built into the app to assist users in calculating and converting length, flow, motor power, pressure, temperature, volume, and fine measurement. The app allows the user to move between U.S. and metric measurements and includes helpful links to the entire range of Silverson high-shear mixers and processing application expertise.  

Initially available on the iOS platform for iPhones, iPads etc., Silverson plans on releasing an Android-based version later this summer, according to Rothman.

To download the app or to learn more, go to the Apple App Store and search under “Silverson” or “Silverson Conversion Tools”.
