01 Mar Anti-tipping kit for silos and tanks
To control weight and filling process in silos or tanks, load cells can be installed under each support of the structure. It allows the silos to become a kind of weighing platform and to control continuously weight of the structure and the quantity of liquid or solid material in it.
For this kind of activities S2Tech proposes a measuring kit. It works as weighing platform and as anti-tipping system. It is made up of a platform in which a load cell is inserted. Each kit has to be installed under support leg of the structure.
Platform has a measuring range up to 10 Ton, both in tension and compression. Thanks to holes on the top it is possible to fix the platform under the silos, in order to guarantee more stability.
Load cells belong to Series LT50. They have a measuring range of 10 Ton, an output signal of 2 mV/V and a total error <±0,2% FS. An amplified version of these load cells is available (both in tension and compression; 0-5 V, 0-10 V and 4-20 mA). Digital outputs RS485 and CANopen are available too.
To guarantee safety, S2Tech supplies a seismic certification with the measuring kit.
