Application: Iron pellets (the final product) are stored in silos before being transferred / shipped.
Challenges: Iron pellets are usually stored in wide silos. A typical iron ore processing site will have multiple silos for the pellets. It is very difficult for operators to closely monitor overall inventory levels across all silos in the field, in order to assure sufficient supplies for efficiently meeting delivery schedules of the final product. APM’s 3DLevelScanner delivers accurate real-time volume measurements of the iron pellets stored in any sized silo, and for all silos in a given field or even for silos located in multiple fields at remote sites. In addition, the 3D visualization tool provides a 3D display of the stored pellets to allow early detection of problems with filling or emptying the silos. This facilitates scheduling of timely maintenance to avoid unexpected interruptions of the process and associated losses in time and money.
