Level-scanner software guards against silo collapse

Uneven loading of bulk solids stored in silos can cause the steel and concrete walls of silos to crack, dent, buckle and bend, potentially leading to catastrophic collapse. The 3DLevelScanner includes a new software option (photo) that can identify the location of the center of gravity of the bulk solids (based on material topography), display it graphically and alert the operator when the center of gravity moves beyond an accepted, user-defined area. A 3DLevelScanner device is mounted on the roof of the silo at an optimal location to view the material surface inside the silo during operations. This system can help operators to reduce structural stress and reduce uneven loading when when filling or emptying a silo.— BinMaster, Lincoln, Neb.
