Silo Weighing System

Silo Weighing System


Any Existing or New Installation of Silo can be converted into silo weighing System. The user  can get the weight data on Digital indicator, In Computer System, On Mobile Device or even by SMS.

The load cells of required capacity are placed between pedestals and the silo. Now the silo is placed on the load cells and the inlet and outlet lines of the silo are also fitted with suspension bellows (if required) to enhance the performance of the system. If the outlet line (normally at the bottom of the tank) is not fitted with suspension bellows, then the performance and accuracy of the weighment will be hampered because of continuous interference caused by the pipeline.

Tank Weighing

The number of load cell depends on the number of pedestals on which the silo is mounted. If it is going to be a new installation, then the number of load cells can be changed accordingly but if the weighing system is about to be fixed into and existing silo, then number of load cell will be same as the number of pedestals or mounting pillars.

Lower capacity circular silos can be placed on three load cells but heavy and rectangular / square silos should be mounted on minimum four load cells for providing suitable support to the silo structure and maximum number of load cells can be depending on the requirement and size of the silo.

Our TWS-07 System is designed to provide a low profile solution for high capacity vessel weighing applications. The assembly combines the compression transducer, mounting hardware with a suspension to support vessel and control the load application. This system is suitable for all indoor as well as outdoor applications. All hardware is designed according to the requirement of the system in terms of corrosive environment and any other such requirement.

Systems can also be fitted with uplift protection to protect the vessel from dismounting and also stabilizing the vessel.

The indicator part is the most vital and feature rich part of our TW-07 system. It comes with host of welcome features. Our indicators, controllers and signal conditioners as well as convertors are based on state of the art ultra – modern technologies to cater to any level of automation and needs of the customer. Be it interlinking with PLC, Computer or automating the complete system with as many features required by the customer.
