GWSL 2100 – Temperature Cable Heavy Duty

Grain-Watch™ temperature cable GWSL2100 marks one base of our patented temperature monitoring system (SE536675). All our cables are made from durable steel conduit cable and fitted with top-quality digital sensors using innovative 1-wire technology.

GWSL2100 is developed for tall silos where the downforce of the stored commodity is considerable. Despite its ability to sustain high pressure, the diameter of the GWSL2100 is only 17.0 mm which significantly limits the roof load.

The sensors come with 2-3 meters spacing, regardless of cable length, and are calibrated for life. No sensor calibration or maintenance is needed – ever.

Cable length is customized to fit the project at hand.

To ensure production quality and maximum safety for our clients, GrainWatch™ products and processes are certified according to ISO, ATEX, IECEx and GOST-R.

Recommendations

Grain-Watch™ temperature cables are hung into steel or concrete silos using the following process connection:

Grain-Watch temperature cables GWSL11100 or 2100 are hung into steel or concrete silos using the described process connection

The amount and length of the temperature cables to efficiently monitor the grain temperature, depend on the dimensions (diameter, eaves height, total height) of the silos. Many silo manufacturers provide brackets for temperature cables in fixed positions in their roof assembly. Other customers need an individual setup. We are happy to cater to both. Our project managers use our flexible dimensioning software to make sure you get optimal coverage.

Accurate grain temperature monitoring in big silo bins requires a multi-cable setup. A basic rule is that one GrainWatch™ cable monitors a radius of 3 meters.
