Milk Storage Tank Monitoring

Milk Storage Tank Monitoring Solution

Looking for a reliable remote inventory management system that measures milk levels in your Milk Storage Tanks?  One that can give you real-time information when your milk is being collected or when there is a level change.

Find out how this Milk Monitoring Sensor with LevelCon Wireless Remote Level Monitoring System can help you easily measure and monitor milk levels.

Milk Monitoring System for Storage Tanks

The LevelCon Level Monitoring System provides remote monitoring and real-time reporting of events and issues associated with your milk storage tanks. These systems are easy to install and provide text/e-mail alerts when levels are compromised.  This Milk Monitoring System can also be GPS tracked if carrying assets.   Finally, this platform is also suitable for small farms to larger establishments.

The StarPin – A Solar Powered Remote Monitor

The LevelCon StarPin is a solar powered remote monitor.  As a result, this device is perfect for low frequency tank level data reporting.  It is also compatible with a wide array of industry standard Milk Monitoring Sensors (including wireless Mesh Network).  Link to the LevelCon Portal and reports and information instantly become available.  Set limits and alarms to be alerted when levels become low or other potential problems occur.

The StarPin can have up to six Mesh Network sensors attached allowing you to monitor pressure and even the temperature inside your tank. Contact us to learn more about these applications.

A Dynamic Duo – The StarPin & The Wireless PCR Radar

Radar sensors are ideal for measuring the levels of liquids and solids.  As a result, they make great Milk Monitoring Sensors.  In fact, these sensors are regularly used in farms for monitoring liquid fertilizer, fuel, and other agrichemicals stored in tanks and silos.

What is a PCR Radar?

The PCR acronym means pulsed coherent radar.

How does it work?

The PCR technology keeps the radio turned off between transmissions.  Transmissions are sent in bursts of pulses.  Therefore, making the inventory levels of the milk highly accurate.  Whilst, consuming little power.

Radar uses time of flight to make a measurement.  Once it installed at the top of the tank or silo, it produces radio microwaves from the antenna system to the measured milk surface below.  This signal is reflected back to the antenna.  Therefore, the amount of time between the emission and reception is proportional to the distance to the product surface.  So, longer the time, the greater the distance.  Ultimately, meaning the lower the level in the tank.

How do I install this Milk Monitoring System?

1:  Install the StarPin anywhere on the tank via single integrated Neodymium magnetic base

2:  Install the Milk Monitoring Sensor into a 1.5” NPT port on the top of the tank

3: Use the LevelCon BLE Connect App to force a report

This Milk Monitoring Sensor is easy to set up and requires little to no maintenance.
