Sensor Technology’s smart load sensor is claimed to provide all the information needed to optimise efficiency and increase profitability of a wide range of industrial operations. The system allows weighing processes to be fully integrated with handling operations. All live data is captured in real time and can be transferred to a database, stored, totalised and analysed.
Schenck Process has added intuitive touch-screen operation, intelligent interfaces and optimised modularity to its Disocont Tersus measurement, control and regulation for device continuous feeding.
The Highland balance is a fully featured balance with a rechargeable battery, removable draft shield and stainless steel pan. Additionally, external calibration is easily done with the built-in HandiCal feature while overload protection is provided internally.
Kelba’s portable high-resolution KHX series bench scales are available in four different capacities - 3 kg x 0.1 g, 6 kg x 0.2 g, 15 kg x 0.5 g and 30 kg x 1 g.
The low-profile compression loadcell mounting kit is designed for silo and tank weighing applications. With in-built overturning restraints suitable for zone 4 earthquake regions, no other load restraint devices are required. Kit heights as low as 125 mm ensure they can be easily retrofitted to existing silos, removing the reliance on level sensors and providing a higher degree of accuracy for stock control and delivery validation.
Ensuring measurement traceability and accuracy is an integral part of the quality-centric approach of Metarom, a French producer of flavours and colours for the food industry.
The IND131/IND331 series of industrial process weighing terminals and transmitters is claimed to deliver equipment that offers comprehensive application features, speed and connectivity.
As a means of making the planned transition to the new era of self-service in the fruit and vegetable aisles attractive for both young and old, Carrefour and the technology manufacturer Bizerba are currently installing around 1400 scales with optical article recognition and an intuitively operable touch screen in 200 hypermarkets. The aims are clear: weighing and labelling procedures should be quicker, sales and customer satisfaction should be higher and staff should be able to be used more flexibly for a larger range of tasks.
Futek Advanced Sensor Technology has released the LLB400 miniature load button load cell with improved overall accuracy. The load cell has a high accuracy with a deflection of 38 µm nominal and an operating temperature of -50 to 93°C.
A&D Australasia has just released a range of super washdown scales to help food and pharmaceutical manufacturers keep up with the ever-increasing hygienic production requirements of government authorities and retail outlets around the world.
PFA579(x)lift and PFA779lift stainless steel floor scales feature a raiseable load plate, tubular design and reinforced load plate to provide a long and reliable service life. The floor scales are easy to clean and are suitable to harsh, industrial environments.
A&D Australasia has released a washdown platform scale for use in harsh environments. The scale series has an IP68 dust- and water-proof rating. They are equipped with a completely sealed indicator, which allows the scale to be completely submersed in 1 m of water for up to 24 h without compromising its water-tightness and no adverse effects on the weighing performance of gaining a stabilised weight reading in 1 s.
Hardy Instruments’ Enviro bench scales meet the needs of the food and chemical industries for sanitary scales that withstand high-pressure, high-temperature washdown environments. The sanitary design and 304 stainless steel construction of the Enviro washdown bench scales help provide a reliable, sanitary, bench scale configuration.
A combination bulk bag and manual dump batching system weighs bulk materials that are discharged from bulk bags and/or manually dumped from sacks, boxes and other containers and empties the batch into mobile storage bins.
The Accuweigh X-320 waterproof weighing indicator is completely sealed to eliminate future repairs caused by water ingress. Rated to IP69K, the X-320 waterproof weight indicator is suitable for use in wash down areas and can withstand direct hosing with high pressure water jets (1400 psi) at high temperatures (up to 80°C).
