Magnetrol International and APM Automation Solutions Ltd. (Tel Aviv, Israel) have completed an agreement designating Magnetrol as a global private label distributor of APM's bulk solids measurement technology. The non‐contact, dust penetrating bulk solids measurement technology will now be distributed around the globe through Magnetrol's numerous international offices and distribution network, a partnership that will allow both companies to advance the solids measurement market.
APM's technology accurately measures volume of stored solid contents, by mapping multiple measurement points on the material surface and generating an accurate reading of the content, thus helping companies and factories to improve inventory management and optimize the process flow of their operations using true and reliable measurement.
"This exciting business partnership is a critical step in a changing industry that will no longer rely on simple level estimation," says APMCEO Ofir Perl. "With Magnetrol's global business reach, APM's patented volume measurement technology will now become the standard of industry for bulk solids measurements."
Magnetrol's CONTOURTM product works with almost every solid and bulk powder material, such as coal, cement, sand, aggregates, fly ash, chemicals, fertilizers, food, grain and plastic pellets. In addition to binsand silos, the systems allow measuring in previously difficult‐to‐measure vessels or containers, such asbunkers, hoppers, pits, open bins, bulk storage rooms and warehouses.
