Silo Inventory Management System Gets Automated

Since its establishment in 1944, Airmatic Inc. has been providing mining and manufacturing companies with bulk material handling products and services. One of Airmatic Inc.’s customers, a leading international supplier of catalysts, specialty construction materials, and engineered packaging materials in the Middle Atlantic states, requested assistance in finding a solution to its for silo inventory management problems.


The investigation focused on finding an accurate and safe level detection system within hoppers and silos. Before a solution was developed, the client used an unsophisticated drop-line method that was both dangerous and yielded inaccurate readings for their silos.

A worker was tasked with climbing an external stairway and traversing through narrow catwalks – even in inclement weather – to check the level of the materials within the silo. After surveying the situation, the BINMASTER® SMARTBOB II was installed to solve the problem of the dangerous measuring procedure.

The BINMASTER® SMARTBOB II is an inventory management system that provides accurate and reliable measurements for industries that need to monitor storage facilities of bulk solids. The BINMASTER® SMARTBOB II can be installed in a single silo, bin, or tank and even in an entire collection of storage containers.

The sensor is placed on top of the vessel, where it will automatically drop a weighted cable that takes a precise measurement of the contents. The readings are sent to a console, removing the need for any worker to climb up the silo or bin. The BINMASTER® SMARTBOB II can accommodate and survey up to 128 silos, up to 180 feet high.
