Weigh modules for applications in the chemical industry

May 2014 Mass Measurement

Mettler Toledo offers compression weigh modules to enable the quick and safe conversion of a tank, hopper, conveyor or structure system into a scale. Built-in side load and lift up protection ensure that safety, performance and precision are maintained. Dedicated features allow fast and safe installation. The weigh modules are available in various versions depending on the application and environment to meet requirements of machine manufacturers and system integrators.

The SWB505 MultiMount weigh modules are designed for reliable weighing in a variety of applications, including tank weighing and dynamic loading on conveyors, mixers and blenders. Even in environments with heavy vibration, high torque or in-motion weighing, these weigh modules are stable and accurate. It also offers a standard lift-off screw that absorbs tipping forces while a vertical down stop provides an added layer of safety. Its rocker-style load pin restores the top plate to its ideal position to maintain accurate, repeatable weight.

The MultiMount offers built-in safety features, including the SafeLock, to ensure easy installation. The SafeLock protects the load cell from accidental overload during shipment and installation and ensures proper mounting alignment for the best possible performance and reliability.

Alternatively, the MultiMount can be installed without the load cell present and just before calibration the load cell can be inserted. This eliminates any possibility of damage to the load cell or its cable. With or without the load cell present, the weigh module is locked rigidly in its ideal position for installation.

The analog load cells use a rocker-pin design that automatically aligns load forces for accurate weighing. In addition, they are hermetically sealed, rated IP68 and available in three different materials (carbon steel, 304 stainless steel and 316 stainless steel) which means they can be used in harsh industrial environments.
