3DLevelScanner for High Temperatures

Model: 3DLS HT

The 3DLevelScanner HT measures inventory level and estimates volume in storage silos containing challenging materials such as clinker, alumina, frac sand and fly ash. This model of the 3DLevelScanner (aka 3D Solids Scanner) has an operating temperature range up to 356°F (180°C) to accommodate higher temperatures that may be present when material that has been heated in the production process is conveyed into storage. The 3DLevelScanner HT is ideal for use in the cement, aluminum, mining and power industries where there are multiple challenges such as dust or high humidity as well as in very large silos where the material surface in the bin may be uneven and difficult to measure.
