A silo scale is used for weight determination and control of silo contents - such as grain, fodder, wood pellets, granulates or cement. Silo scales consist of load cells and weighing indicators or scale displays. In addition to weight display, modern weighing terminals offer control functions. This reduces the operating effort to a minimum. Silo scales are used not only to register the current inventory of ingredients, but also to control their removal and increase. In this way, silo scales help to control and simplify filling, production and work processes. The weighing electronics of silo scales should be robust and durable - even in dusty and dirty environments, the silo scale must function perfectly.
