What Is Volume Level Measurement?

3D degree scanners or volume measurement technologies is an Israeli invention designated to measure the volume of different substances. It’s founded on output signal that penetrates debris and measures the material, whether solid or powder, by simply sending a signal and estimating how much time it return to the device.

One of the challenges of large scale manufacturing in various industries such as cement, food, chemicals, plastics and other people is accurately assessing the inventory in order to handle properly the entire manufacturing process.

There are many types of silos and other storage containers of different sizes and shapes which differ in several basic characteristics like particle size, particle type, dielectric constants and much more. The conditions within the storage containers and silos create the measurement process hard as they are dusty, have irregular surfaces anomalies and are subject to unbalanced filling and draining.



The most important three technologies until recently for measuring the degree of solid materials inside silos and other containers measure the material only at the same point of their surface thus don’t provide satisfactorily accurate measure of the average degree of the substance. Another technology in this field subtracts the weight of an empty container out of a packed container. The main shortcoming of the technology is that it’s costly and needs a built in load cells at the silo.

Pallet Scales delivers another solution. The technology is based on reduced frequency echoes that quantify the whole surface of the material and not only one random point. The scanner not merely measures the level of the material but also the volume and mass of the content. The system employs a range of beam-former that deliver low frequency rhythms in the fabric of the container. The signal is examined from the device and generates 3-dimensional image of the material surface displayed on a remote screen.
