Weighing for suspended hoppers and vessels

Thursday, 17 January, 2008 | Supplied by: Mettler-Toledo Ltd



The SWS310 tension weigh modules with the SLS410 load cell enable users to convert a suspended hopper or vessel into a scale. The mounting hardware is durable enough to withstand harsh industrial environments and support the vessel safely. The clevis and rod assemblies are able to compensate for slight misalignment which help provide accurate and repeatable weighing.

The modules are easy to install in a variety of industrial applications. They adapt to any suspended hopper or vessel to provide accurate weighing. Each weigh module is equipped with a pair of clevis and rod assemblies that are designed to measure only vertical loads and restrain the vessel from moving. The zinc-plated carbon steel hardware is strong enough to support a vessel safely.

The SLS410 nickel-plated tension load cells provide exceptional weighing accuracy in a wide range of process weighing applications. The mounting hardware includes a bonding strap, teflon-lined bearings and nylon washers to reduce the risk of electrical damage. The bonding strap helps to protect the load cell by shunting electrical currents directly from the top clevis to the bottom clevis, instead of through the load cell.

Tension weigh modules can also be used to convert mechanical scales for electronic weighing.
