Coal Mining Process

Coal Silo
Application: Following a screening and grinding process, coal is typically delivered to large storage silos via rail or conveyor belt.

Challenges: The coal silos are large in size, containing tons of material. If the end user wishes to know the real-time inventory of raw coal and have it connected to the ERP system (to make room for raw coal coming into the silos and getting shipments ready for trucks and trains heading to end users), an accurate measuring system is required. BinMaster’s systems are the only systems that can accurately measure the coal in silos with accuracy, through the use of unique surface mapping technology.
