Columbia, MD, United States, 2013/05/06 - Mettler Toledo has published a new video that shows how its new SWB505 MultiMount weigh module is rigorously tested to ensure it meets its specifications in real-life applications and can be safely installed - MT.com.
Not all weigh modules are designed or tested equally. 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.
To have confidence in the weigh module, it 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 it will safely support the vessel. Many weigh module producers publish ratings that substantiate a claim of support, but do not necessarily perform FEA and physical testing, like METTLER TOLEDO does. Weigh modules that have survived stress and strength analysis make installations safer and encourage a longer product life.
Weigh modules are used for tank weighing, hopper weighing, conveyor scales, scale conversion. Compression weigh modules are designed to be installed under the legs, mounting lugs, or support beams of a structure. The weight that is being measured compresses the weigh module's load cell, causing a change in output signal. We offer models to meet the needs of a variety of static and dynamic weighing applications in a wide range of capacities.
The video shows how extensive quality testing during the design phase ensures a high quality product and how the innovative SafeLock features facilitate easier and safer installation.
