Using the right weighing technology is the base for achieving the required accuracy over the entire live cycle of a tank, silo, vessel, hopper or conveyor weighing systems. But it also depends on the design of the support structure since it deflects downwards as load is applied to it. An undesirable vertical force results any time that piping or wiring is connected. Both effects can cause severe weighing errors by supporting some of the weight that should be applied to the weigh modules.
Mettler Toledo offers a handbook about planning and installation of such weighing systems. It offers practical guidelines for engineers, designers and service people to avoid common errors. It covers design calculations, thermal effects, piping connections, designing of support structures and calibration. The Handbook with 150 pages is written in English. The company has experience on a global base in consulting, providing and installing tank, silo, vessel, hopper and conveyor weighing systems. It offers a comprehensive range of weigh modules, weight transmitters and terminals in various versions suitable for use in dry, wet or hazardous environments.
