Liquids, powders, bulk materials or gases are usually produced and stored in tanks or containers. In order to guarantee the availability of these goods, it is necessary to know the exact levels within the containers.
Application of SIWAREX weighing technology permits highly exact and reliable measurement of tank levels independent of the content – whether liquid or bulk material, corrosive or dusty.
In order to prevent errors due to lateral forces (e.g. due to pipe connections), it is recommendable to use SIWAREX mounting units for the installation of load cells, whereby the installation is even simplified.
Very high accuracy of up to 0.005% independently of ambient conditions and material properties
Independent of agitators and container shape
Funnel flow, heaped objects and bridging have no influence
Suitable for both small containers and large silos (>1000t)
Free choice of medium (liquid, powder, …..)
Easy integration in SIMATIC / PCS7
Use of SIMATIC CPU diagnostic interrupts
Uniform access from the control system to all parameters and data of the scales
