Multipoint digital probe with IP68 sheath in AISI304 and digital sensors for continuous detection of temperatures inside silos or warehouses for the storage of raw materials (cereals and derivatives). The stainless steel surface of the TT probes allows a reduced traction force during the unloading of the product to the advantage of installations on sheet metal roofs. Furthermore, from the hygienic and sanitary point of view, the stainless steel / product contact avoids any contamination.
Up to 12 sensors can be installed on each TT probe. The measurements taken are addressed to the SGM-Lektra series Agritherm monitoring systems or to a PLC / SCADA system through the special MUX concentrator, which allows the connection of up to 8 TT probes.
The experience gained in the field has allowed us to determine the quantity and the relative positioning of the thermometric probes inside silos for the storage of cereals, seeds or flours in order to ensure proper monitoring of product temperatures.
Each thermometric probe mod. TM / TT immersed in the product has an action range of 3.5 meters (variable data depending on the measured product). The digital sensors placed every 2.5 / 3 meters along the entire length of the probe therefore guarantee a measuring diameter of 7 meters. The quantity of sensors installed along each probe varies in relation to its length.
For a good level of monitoring of the product stored in silos with a diameter of 7; 12; 17; 22 meters, we suggest the following indicatively
Silos ø 7 meters | 1 central probe = 100% coverage
Silos ø 12 meters | 3 probes first ring = 83% coverage
Silos ø 17 meters | 1 central probe; 5 probes first ring = 85% coverage
Silos ø 22 meters | 3 probesfirst ring; 8 probes second ring = 89% coverage
