Cement and Aggregates Inventory Management Solution:

Continuous Silo Level Detection and Inventory Management of Ready Mix Cement, Sand, Aggregates

Silo Patrol for Cement LevelsSITUATION:
A company in Illinois, USA with 13 silos that provides pre-blended masonry products and automated mixing stations to construction sites was looking for a way to better control the inventory levels of their raw materials instead of having to do a “visual”.

SOLUTION:
After some research they decided to go with the SiloPatrol® plumb bob “smart” sensor (SMU) with the SiloTrack inventory management software from Monitor Technologies. They were able to justify the expenditure because of the added benefits of time saved from manually measuring the material levels and for the personnel safety reasons. Now with automatic or on-demand readings, they have more confidence of when they need to re-order raw materials to avoid downtimes waiting for more materials. They can also have a very accurate indication of when the silos are getting full during refilling to prevent the downtime and clean-up costs of an over-filled silo. Plus, personnel make a lot fewer trips up the silos which reduces the risk of injury.

Their initial purchase was for 6 SiloPatrol SMU’s and the SiloTrack inventory management software. Once they realized the value of the continuous “on-demand” level measurement system, they purchased additional SMU’s for more of their silos. Other aspects of the SiloPatrol that they mentioned they appreciated were the simplicity of installation (including wiring and set-up) for the sensor and the inventory management software and that the software works with the current PC on their desk.
