APPLICATIONS: SILO/TANK/ HOPPER/ VESSEL WEIGHING SYSTEMS
Silo, tank, hopper, bin or bunker can be installed on top of load cells and the weight of the contents can be measured with a very high precision and easily communicated to external data systems such as PLC, HMI or SCADA.
Typical materials that are stored in silos/tanks/hoppers:
Food and drink ingredients like wheat, flour, cooking oill, grains, ethanol, juices
Minerals like charcoal, sulphur, nickel, copper, iron ore
Concrete and cement
And many others...
A silo weighing system is consists of three or four load cells, each with a weighing module, an intellegentjunction box and a weight indicator or transmitter. The mounting kit (weighing module) ensures that the correct amount of force is applied to each of the load cell, preventing it from being affected by non-vertical forces and ensuring repeatability of its signal output. The intellegent junction box joins the wires from the individual load cells and equalises the mV signals from the load cells to create an average mV value which is transmitted to the weight indicator or controller.Our indicators have several communication options to transmit the weight to a PLC or PC.
AISI 304 stainless steel laminas against lateral forces.
Anti-tilt system consists of two threaded bars with self-locking nut.
Side shifts and anti-tilt in function of: knocks and vibrations, wind effect, seismic conditions and hardness of support structure
