  • 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...
