Multiple-Point Measurement for Accurate Volume 


The 3DLevelScanner uses acoustics-based technology. Three transducers send very low frequency sound waves to the material surface. The sensor receives echoes back from multiple points on the surface which are converted to distance measurements.

Advanced algorithms in the software assign each measurement an XYZ coordinate that is mapped into a 3D image. The software generates a graphical representation of the material topography in the bin. Surface variations are accounted for in volume calculations. 

Get connected to your inventory with the only level sensor that measures and maps multiple points on the material surface.  A 3D image representing the topography inside the silo indicates buildup, cone up or down conditions. 3DVision software accounts for irregular material surfaces when calculating volume.

The 3DLevelScanner’s acoustics-based technology penetrates dust ensuring reliable measurements. This non-contact technology accurately measures solids and powders, including low dielectric materials.   And you can get it only from BinMaster. 

What Makes the 3DLevelScanner Unique

• Measures multiple points on the material surface
• Generates a 3D image of the material topography
• Volume accuracy surpasses any single-point device
• Reports minimum, maximum, and average distances
• Detects cone up or down conditions
• Sees sidewall buildup that could cause structural damage

• Measures topography in segmented silos
• Accurate volume in large bins using multiple scanners 

3D scanners provide continuous, non-contact level measurement using dust-penetrating technology for unsurpassed bin volume accuracy. Unlike single point devices, BinMaster's 3DLevelScanners measure multiple points to detect irregular material surfaces, cone up/down conditions, or sidewall buildup. Advanced acoustics-based technology is proven to perform in powders and bulk solids contained in tanks, silos, domes, warehouses, open bins, and piles.
