USING 3D LEVEL SENSORS TO SOLVE THE TOUGHEST FOOD STORAGE CHALLENGES

For almost a decade, 3DLevelScanners have been providing highly accurate level and volume measure-
ment in challenging materials contained in bins, tanks, and silos. The only sensor to measure and map 
the material surface, it sends pulses in a 70° beam angle, taking multiple level measurements and 
accounting for uneven surface topography when calculating volume. Each sensor comes with 3DVision 
software that reports the lowest and highest points detected and the average level based upon a weighted 
average of all measurements in the bin. For the MV and the MVL models, a colorful graphical representation 
indicates where high and low spots exist in the silo.
