What Is Volume Level Measurement?

3D degree scanners or volume measurement technologies is an Israeli innovation designated to measure the quantity of different materials. It is based on acoustical signal that penetrates debris and measures the substance, whether solid or powder, by sending a signal and estimating how much time it return to the device.

Among the challenges of large scale production in a variety of industries like food, cement, chemicals, plastics and others is correctly assessing the stock in order to handle properly the entire manufacturing procedure.

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



The Existing Technologies and Their Drawbacks:

The most important 3 technology until recently for measuring the level of solid substances inside silos and other containers measure the substance only at the same stage of their surface thus fail to provide satisfactorily accurate measure of the average degree of the material. The main shortcoming of the technology is it’s costly and needs a built-in of load cells at the silo.

The 3D degree scanner offers another solution. The technology is based on low frequency echoes that measure the whole surface of the content instead of only one arbitrary point. The scanner not only measures the degree of the material but also the quantity and mass of the content. The system uses a range of beam-former that send low frequency pulses in the material of the container. Floor Scales is examined from the device and generates 3-dimensional image of the substance surface exhibited on a distant screen.
