APM Automation Solutions Ltd. is a leading manufacturer and expert in volume and level measurement instrumentation. Its flagship product, the 3DLevelScanner™, represents a new family of devices that takes the guesswork out of measuring the level, volume and mass of materials stored inside a silo or open bin with 3D mapping of the contents. It incorporates APM’s unique patented technology to a range of 3D volume and level measurement solutions that address applications previously thought to be beyond the scope of level measurement with unparalleled degrees of accuracy.
APM Technology – how it works
The 3DLevelScanner employs an array of three antennas to transmit low frequency pulses and to receive echoes of the pulses from the contents of the silo, bin or other container. Using three antennas the unit measures not only the time/distance of each echo but also its direction. The device's Digital Signal Processor samples and analyzes the received signals to provide very accurate measurements of the level, volume and mass of the stored contents and generates a 3D representation of actual allocation of product within the container for display on remote computer screens.
This unique device measures practically any kind of material stored in a great variety of containers, including silos, large open bins, bulk solid storage rooms, stockpiles and warehouses. It maps build-up loads and other irregularities that randomly form over time, offering solutions and for this and many other previously inaccessible challenging applications.
APM's customers base includes: ADM, Cargill, Bunge, Louis Dreyfus, Proctor and Gamble, International Paper, Cemex, Lafarge, Anheuser Busch, Fagen, Holcim, Henkel, Coca Cola, Alcan, ArcelorMittal, De Beers, and many others.
