www.cementamericas.com • Fall 2018 • CEMENT AMERICAS 45 PRODUCTS Companies that store materials in bins and stockpiles can now manage inventory for both using a single system. Bin- Master and Stockpile Reports have joined forces to improve material management for companies that demand better control and accuracy of inventory volume and value. The partnership combines the power of robust level sensors with innovative image processing software to optimize and simplify the customer experience across the mining, cement and agricultural industries. The two companies share a vision of integrating inven- tory from piles and storage bins into a single dashboard accessed from a desktop, tablet or mobile device. The mis- sion is to provide inventory accuracy and transparency to production, purchasing and finance across an entire organi- zation as well as individual production sites. Replacing out- dated guesswork, inventory write offs and bad valuations is the intent of the solution. "We are often asked if we can measure silos as well and now, the answer is yes," said David Boardman, CEO of Stock- pile Reports. "Financial and operations staff today demand digitized solutions. Our partnership with BinMaster allows us to provide the integrated solution they need." Garner Industries CEO Scott McLain added, "BinMaster welcomes the opportunity to offer customers an even more robust inventory management solution. Integrating inven- tory reporting for piles and silos is a unique offering that fits perfectly with our customer-driven organization." Imagine getting precise and reliable stockpile volume measurements by simply uploading pictures – that is what Stockpile Reports has been doing since 2013. Driven by three patents that power Stockpile Reports' technology, it is the only pile management solution that can use photos from a cell phone, drone, plane or fixed-mounted camera to accurately measure volume. Dashboards populated with photographs, site statistics and materials report vital information on the volume, tonnage and condition risks for each pile. The SaaS subscription not only allows users to track pile inventory on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis – it is the only solution that works from both air and ground cameras. Proven in storage silos for over 55 years, BinMaster sensors fortify operations with advanced technology such as 3D scanners, non-contact-radar and lasers to measure level and volume. Wireless solutions, digital gateways, conve- nient consoles and remote inventory management pro- grams complement a robust continuous and point level sensor selection. With the unique union of Stockpile Reports and silo inven- tory data, operations can be safer, more efficient and prof- itable. BinMaster/Stockpile Reports, www.binmaster.com/ products/product/stockpile-reports Silo Inventory Management Process equipment manufacturer Van Tongeren America unveiled a line of industrial cyclone separation systems. Specified to separate dry particles from a stream of air or other gas and remove momentum, the Van Tongeren cyclones are custom-engineered for dust collection, particle classification and/or material recovery to achieve maximum collection efficiency based on the desired cut point, material load, airstream velocity and other factors. Ideal for installa- tion downstream from dryers, coolers, boilers, combusters, pneumatic conveyors, and from other dry processing equip- ment, the industrial cyclones excel in processing aggregates, cement and a diverse variety of other particulates. The cyclones are designed with no moving parts for low Industrial Cyclones
