Agriculture is a key part of the Australian economy. Delivering edible products such as the ones below to consumers across the globe involves a complex process that depends on accuracy.

SRO Technology has the knowledge and experience to install, calibrate, repair and service industrial measurement solutions.

Our experts approach projects with the attitude that instruments can either make or break operations. The accuracy of a plant’s measuring systems will ultimately dictate its ability to run at an optimal level.

The instruments agriculture needs

Companies that collect, store, process or deliver food typically use a selection of several instruments to support their plants. Throughout our time delivering services to the food sector, we’ve identified the following measurement devices as essential to agricultural operations:


  • Level measurement instruments help workers calculate silo capacities for filling and loading purposes. Using laser, gravemetric, radar or ultrasonic technologies, these devices also reduce the chances of workers sustaining injuries by eliminating the need for them to climb silo bins and manually deduce levels.
  • Belt weighing solutions enable facilities to measure the exact amount of product processed each shift. Positioned horizontally and vertically with adjacent rollers and support structures, belt weighers help accountants develop accurate invoices for customers.
  • Tramp metal detection systems are designed to detect small metal particles from food products, serving as components of quality assurance efforts. In many ways, these instruments play an important part in ensuring goods are safe for people to consume.
  • Feeders allow employees to control exactly how much product enters specific equipment. These instruments are particularly important when different materials are mixed to create finished goods such as chocolate.

SRO Technology’s approach

SRO Technology recently assisted an ore processing facility to recalibrate its belt scales.

The advantages of working with SRO Technology starts with our attention to detail. All too often, instrumentation solutions are improperly installed or configured, offsetting the efficiencies a mine could gain from accurate readings.

Before recommending a set of specific solutions, we’ll conduct a thorough assessment of your operations to factor in how instruments impact your business. Then, we’ll identify any defective or inaccurate devices.

Based on our findings, we’ll outline a plan that details which sort of instruments your mining operations need. Our goal is to establish a more cost-effective, competitive facility, so it’s imperative that we make recommendations applicable to your company.
