You can choose from a wide variety of measuring methods for inventory control of solids or liquids in tanks and silos. However, accuracy can depend on material characteristics and environmental conditions. Non-contact distance and level measurement techniques as well as almost all flowmeters only provide a volume measurement.
In contrast, weighing technology provides a reliable and accurate result for all conditions and every material. Weighing is better because:
- It is effective regardless of tank design, material distribution and cavities.
- Measurement is independent from temperature, dust, foam and waves.
- Calibration is easier and more reliable than with volumetric technologies.
