Microcell® Bolt-On Sensor

Turn Your Vessel Into a Scale

The Microcell is an easy to install bolt on strain gauge sensor that produces an electrical output proportional to the changes in weight of a vessel.

  • An empty vessel is not required for installation or calibration. This allows for increased up-time.
  • No special tools are required for installation
  • Immune to material characteristics like angle of repose, rat-holing, bridging, moisture content, compaction, vapors and dust
  • For vessels with a capacity of 75,000 lbs or more
  • Repairs and retrofitting can occur without taking the silo out of commission.
