This article discusses the application and challenges involved in potash production and shows how 3D level measurement can be used to accurately determine standard and granular potash levels in dome silos.

The final product - granular potash - is transferred to large silos and onsite warehouses. Potash of different grades is stored separately.
Figure 1. Potash production
The granular potash is kept in huge domes that can measure up to 150 ft in diameter. However, the large size makes it difficult to accurately measure the volume of contents stored in the dome. As a result, the end-users’ inventory management and control capabilities are considerably affected.
These issues are resolved with the BinMaster’s MVL system. The system delivers accurate, reliable, and real-time volume measurement, and also provides end-users with 3D visualization of the distribution of the potash kept within the dome.
Standard-grade potash is transferred to large domes or silos onsite. Potash of different grades is stored separately.
Standard-grade potash is kept in large domes that can measure up to 150 ft in diameter. The large size makes it difficult to make accurate volume measurement of contents stored in the dome, which influences the end users’ inventory management and control capabilities.
These issues can be resolved by BinMaster’s MVL system, which provides real-time, accurate, and reliable volume measurement. End users can also view the distribution of the material kept inside the dome.
