Salt Production - Rock Salt
The primary crushed rock storage silo holds material from the initial stage of salt production, feeding a secondary crusher, and therefore needs to be monitored to enable smooth production downstream. The silo is generally underground and is usually created by controlled explosions. Therefore, the walls of the stock silo are not always smooth and the crushed salt rocks stored in the silo are also of varying shapes, making it difficult to measure the volume of material available for production. Early detection of buildup inside the silo is important, so the end user can reduce the risk of material collapsing on the bottom of the silo, which could cause damage to the silo, the crusher, and other mechanical parts.
