Grain Truck Loading Silo Radar Level Sensor

When a Midwest farmer needed reliable level measurement of their grain truck loading station, they turned to Flowline. Harvested wheat kernels are stored in large silos awaiting purchase by and transportation to their local coop. In preparation, grain is transferred to three elevated loading silos that gravity feed into trucks waiting below. The operator monitors level indicators as each loading silo is filled and emptied. Unfortunately, their mechanical-type level bobbers would often fail, requiring costly and dangerous maintenance. For this reason, Flowline suggested the use of our solid-state radar sensors that provide reliable, maintenance-free level measurement. The radar sensors provide continuous level data to the silo indicator panel. Flowline is reliable level measurement.
