Mettler Toledo handbook on weigh module integration

Friday, 22 February, 2013 | Supplied by: Mettler-Toledo Ltd


Mettler Toledo has issued a handbook providing advice on the design and application of load cells and weigh modules for tanks, silos, vessels, hoppers and conveyors.

The document covers the fundamentals of designing, building and installing customised solutions, which may help in making informed decisions regarding the integration of weigh modules.

Using the right weighing technology is the base for achieving the required accuracy over the entire life cycle of a tank, silo, vessel, hopper or conveyor weighing system. However, the design of the support structure is equally important because it deflects downward as load is applied to it. An undesirable vertical force results any time that piping or wiring is connected. Both effects can cause severe weighing errors by supporting some of the weight that should be applied to the weigh modules.

The handbook offers practical guidelines for engineers, designers and service people to avoid common errors when planning and installing weighing systems. It covers design calculations, thermal effects, piping connections, designing of support structures and calibration. With a greater understanding of these concepts, businesses can ensure they are choosing the best equipment for the job and in turn improve efficiency and enhance profits.
