Video Shows How Weigh Modules Ensure Safety, Accuracy

April 17, 2013

Mettler Toledo has published a new video that shows how its new SWB505 MultiMount weigh modules are rigorously tested to ensure they meet specifications in real-life applications and can be safely installed.

The new MultiMount weigh modules are designed for easy installation and for withstanding harsh industrial environments. In large tank or vessel installations, weigh modules not only weigh the vessel, but they also support the tanks and become an integral part of the entire structure, preventing it from tipping, for example.

Weigh modules should be designed using finite element analysis (FEA) to model where the stresses will be. That, in addition to physical testing to verify the computer model, ensures they will safely support the vessel. Weigh modules that have survived stress and strength analysis make installations safer and encourage a longer product life.

The video shows how extensive quality testing during the design phase ensures a high-quality product and how the SafeLock features facilitate easier and safer installation.
