Where, in the past, measurements were taken by using tapes and where heights and curves were visually estimated in order to determine a volume of a stockpile, Ssp offers volume measurements by using survey equipment combined with GPS technology. The result of this technology is a 3D mapping of your stockpile and with an acceptable tolerance.
Working with high technical and advanced equipment we are able to calculate fast and accurate volumes using a higher density of points than traditional measuring methods and create volume reports directly in the field. To convert the volume measured into metric tons adequate sampling of your stockpile is required in order to determine the bulk density. The sampling and determination of the bulk density is performed in full accordance with ISO Standards.
Volume measurements can also be carried out in closed rooms such as warehousing. These measurements are carried out together with the company Coenradie by using laser scanners. You will receive a short impression on the accompanying promotional film
