Key Features

Bulk Weighing with Silo Hawk (Silos / Bins / Hoppers)

The high accuracy, low noise, temperature compensated bolt-on sensors are used to measure changes in weight measurements that feed back to local data points. The information can be viewed locally on stand alone systems or globally using secure SSL access via our Cloud Based Storage platform. The system has optional alarm outputs, that can trigger audio/visual warnings for under or over fill, and create alerts that can be emailed directly to a known set of users.

Whether you are weighing onions, corn, barley, waste, aggregate or liquids, and whether you are attaching to a silo, bin or hopper, Silo Hawk will provide real time key data to assist your business in saving time and money.

Benefits

Benefits of weighing Silos / Bins / Hoppers

See below just some of the benefits that Silo Hawk presents, that are achieved with experiential ROI compared to other intrusive costly systems.

  • Accurate & Reliable
    Building on 30 years experience in industrial high accuracy weighing, the bolt on solution gives accurate and reliable data with 0.1% linearity and repeatability regardless on the product type being measured – no matter which type of storage container you are weighing – silo, bin or hopper
  • Cost-Effective
    Compared to standard and customer load cells, ultrasonic sensors and other systems on the market, the hardware and software package is extremely cost effective with rapid ROI.
  • Expandable System
    Whether you are weighing 1 hopper or 1000 silos, the system can be tailored to groups or made site specific. The data can also be fed into other WMS/ERP systems and has an SQL backed database that can be queried in real time.
  • Easy to Install & Retrofit
    The sensors can be installed with zero silo downtime, no jacking required. The retrofit to existing legs or mounting blocks and arrive reconfigured to your system.
  • Multi Industry Compatible
    Whether you have a silo, hopper, weigh bin, waste bin, storage container, in any industry, the solution can provide real time, accurate weighing and monitoring across any industry type.
  • 24/7 Cloud Based Monitoring & Accessible Data
    View levels, weight shifts, Dispense changes, alarms and statuses of all of your silos wherever they are and where you are in the world. Being cloud based, using our secure servers, you have access to live and downloadable data 24/7, 365 days per year.

FAQs

  • How can I measure the weight of my silo?
    There are several ways that this can be done, the simplest and easiest way which doesn’t require any major modifications to the silo, hopper or weighing bin is to use the existing structure and apply the Datum Bolt-On Strain sensors to give simple and accurate torque measurement. Datum Electronics offer a range of smart weighing solutions for silos giving customers real time accurate information which can include visuals of load status and alarms for when Silo levels are low. These can also be used in a preventative state as the Bolt-On Sensors will look at the strain levels on the silos, hoppers or bins in case of potential failure.
  • Can Silo Hawk be used to weigh other types of bulk storage container?
    Silo Hawk is a flexible solution that can be used to weigh any type of bulk storage container, such as hoppers and bins. A hopper, silo, and bin are all used to store bulk materials, but they differ in a few key ways: A hopper is a small, open-topped container with a sloping bottom that allows material to flow out. It is typically used to store and dispense materials such as sand, gravel, and grain. A silo is a large, vertical container with a conical or cylindrical shape. It is typically used to store dry bulk materials such as grain, cement, and coal. A bin is a large, horizontal container with a flat bottom. It is typically used to store dry bulk materials such as grain, flour, and sugar. The main difference between a hopper and a silo is that a hopper has a sloping bottom, while a silo has a vertical or conical bottom. This difference in shape affects the way that material flows out of the container. Material flows out of a hopper by gravity, while material flows out of a silo by gravity and air pressure. The main difference between a hopper and a bin is that a hopper is typically used to store and dispense materials, while a bin is typically used to store materials. This difference in use affects the design of the container. A hopper typically has a discharge chute that allows material to be dispensed, while a bin typically does not have a discharge chute. In summary, a hopper, silo, and bin are all used to store bulk materials, but they differ in a few key ways. A hopper has a sloping bottom, while a silo has a vertical or conical bottom. A hopper is typically used to store and dispense materials, while a bin is typically used to store materials.
