Our bolt on sensors are easy to install strain gauges which produce an electrical output directly related to the material weight. These are your best option for instrumenting existing vessels, as they do not require the vessel to be modified in any way.
A vessel fitted with our bolt on sensors provides consistent and accurate measurements of the amount of bulk material in a vessel in real-time. This simplifies production and inventory management and prevents down time from accidentally running a tank empty during production.
Unlike laser, ultrasonic or radar based level sensors, our Bolt On Sensors are mounted on the outside of the vessel, and respond to changes in weight. This means they cannot be fooled by common conditions of bridging, rat-holing or side-buildup inside a vessel, leading to greater certainty in level measurement.
