How our bunker weighers work
When a silo, tank or bunker is being placed on loadcells you can determine the net content in kg or ton. Taken into account that the content measuring has to be very precise (from +/- 0,1%). A silo, tank- or bunker weigher usually has three or four load cells. These load cells each have an mount, an junction box and an indicator. The mount takes care of the right amount of force in the loadcells. There are several communication options to read the weighing results in the PLC/PC.
Use of our bunker weighers
A bunker weigher is usually used in the bulk- and recycling Industry. When there are huge amounts of loose and dry products to be processed. Like wheat, barley, sand, compost, fertilizer, clay, substrates and corn. The bulk weighing application can also be used in silos and tanks.

What our customers have to say
‘We were looking for a dosing system that could fill containers with clay and also ensure an even distribution. When emptying the containers, we are now able to deliver a good mixture of the ground clay to the factory. Thanks to ARCO’s dosing system, there are far fewer fluctuations in the clay, which in turn improves the quality.’
‘When you both believe in solutions, great results come naturally.’
‘Because we worked hand in hand with ARCO, everything was developed in consultation and the mega silo bunker perfectly suits our needs. It was an enjoyable collaboration that produced good results.’
‘Thanks to ARCO’s installation, we can do the same work with fewer operators. The system ensures a faster throughput of products and the best possible conditions for our operators. ’
