  • Hardy Introduces IIoT-Ready Bench Scale

    July 28, 2017

    Hardy Process Solutions introduces the Hardy E-Scale bench scale series with an IIoT-ready (Industrial Internet of Things) scale base. It includes an integrated Hardy weight processor for direct network connection to EtherNet/IP, Profibus-DP, Modbus, or Ethernet networks.    ...

  • Schenck Process to Open Segregated Stainless Steel Production Plant

    July 26, 2017

    In an effort to better serve the high end food, dairy, nutraceutical, and fine chemical markets, Schenck Process announces an investment to renovate its main plant at the Whitewater, WI location to a dedicated stainless steel production facility.    The change removes carbon steel...

  • Weighbelts as a Feeding Option

    July 12, 2017

    In many ways a weighbelt feeder operates similarly to a screw feeder or a vibratory feeder, but there are distinct differences that have to be considered when choosing a weighbelt as an option for feeding dry bulk solids.         The first thing to consider is how a...

  • Hydraulically Damped Single-Point Load Cells

    June 21, 2017

    Single point load cells possess the characteristic to be insensitive for a moment. This allows measurement of eccentric positioned loads. Weighing arrangements with surface sizes up to 600 x 600 mm can be realized with only one sensor. The hydraulically damped sensors also add insensitivity to...

  • Weighing over Level Sensors and Flowmeters

    June 9, 2017

    Accurate inventory control inside tanks and silos greatly depends on material characteristics and environmental conditions. Gravimetric measuring technology typically provides higher accuracy compared to volumetric or level-detection methods. This article explains the advantages and disadvantages...

  • Using Traditional & Smart Scale Calibration Methods to Comply with QMS

    May 25, 2017

    Most manufacturers use a Quality Management System (QMS), such as ISO 9001, to ensure their process measurement devices, including industrial tank, floor, platform, and bench scales, are properly maintained (i.e. calibrated and validated). To meet ISO requirements, weighing systems require that...

  • The Spirit of a Brew

    May 11, 2017

    We all know it when it hits our lips: the refreshing taste of a good brew. That experience is even more enjoyable in the company of friends and family. The traditional taproom was originally established to provide rest and refreshment to travelers during the Roman colonization of Britain. But...

  • Understanding Weighing Equipment for Use in Hazardous Environments

    May 8, 2017

    Weighing systems have a wide range of commercial and industrial applications. In industrial applications, weighing scales are used for counting parts, batching, drum filling, mixing, dispensing, chemical formulation, and so on. Owing to their diverse applications, weighing systems are used in a...

  • Shear Beam Load Cells

    May 2, 2017

    In process weighing the series 350 shear beam load cells are reliable, accurate, and easy to install. Furthermore, the industrial characteristics, fully out of stainless steel and hermetically sealed, make this type fit for any application. The measuring principle, the determination of shear,...

  • Tank and Hopper Scales

    May 1, 2017

    THBC series electronic load cell kits are ideal for weighing tanks, hoppers, mixers, and conveyors. These self-checking load cell kits are available with mild steel or stainless steel stands, system capacities ranging from 7500 to 200,000 lb, and stainless steel waterproof load cells. The THBC kits...
