Description

The SoliTrak™ is an electro-mechanic level measuring instrument for the continuous measuring of level in hoppers, silos or tanks. This top mounted system is used for monitoring the level in applications such as powders, small grain bulk materials or coarse grain bulk materials. A bob weight is mounted at the end of a measuring rope or tape, which is wrapped on a motor driven rope roller. Upon contact with the bulk material, the bob weight returns and is drawn back to its upper stop position.

The housing is divided into two independent chambers (the rope chamber and the electronic chamber, seen below), which are sealed to each other to isolate electronics from the process. Only the rope chamber is in contact to the inside of the silo during the measurement. If the bob weight is in the upper stop position, it seals the opening between the unit and the silo. Pulses are generated during downward movement and the number of pulses can be processed directly in a PLC (programmable logic controller) or a counter.
