3D level scanners or volume measurement technologies is an Israeli invention designated to measure the quantity of different substances. It’s founded on acoustical signal that penetrates dust and steps the material, whether solid or powder, by sending a sign and estimating how long it gets back to the gadget.

Among the challenges of large scale production in various industries such as cement, food, chemicals, plastics and others is accurately assessing the stock so as to handle properly the full production procedure.

There are many types of silos and other storage bins of different sizes and shapes that differ in many basic features such as particle size, particle type, dielectric constants and much more. Medical Scales inside the storage containers and silos create the measurement procedure hard as they are dusty, have irregular surfaces anomalies and are susceptible to unbalanced filling and draining.

The main 3 technologies until lately for measuring the level of solid substances within silos and other containers measure the substance only at one point of the surface thus fail to provide adequately accurate measure of the average degree of the substance. Another technology in this field subtracts the weight of an empty container out of a packed container. The most important shortcoming of the technology is that it is costly and requires a built-in of load cells at the silo.

The 3D degree scanner delivers another solution. The technology relies on reduced frequency echoes that quantify the whole surface of the content instead of only one arbitrary point. The scanner not merely measures the level of the content but also the volume and mass of the material. The system employs a range of beam-former that send low frequency pulses in the fabric of the container. The signal is analyzed from the apparatus and generates 3-dimensional image of the substance surface exhibited on a remote screen.
