Load cell provides top accuracy, protection

06/29/2006


Scaime , a leading manufacturer of weighing components and systems, has launched a new product line of stainless-steel welded seal shear-beam load cells. Designated SK30X Series, these load cells are designed to fit industrial applications and, more specifically, are legal for trade scales. SK30X load cells have capacity ratings from 300 to 2,000 kg (660-4,400 lb), with certified accuracy up to 6,000 divisions OIML and 5,000 divisions NTEP. [Designation OIML refers to the French wording of International Organization of Legal Metrology and NTEP refers to National Type Evaluation Program, an evaluation program administered by the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM). These are international agencies that promote worldwide harmonization of legal metrology procedures and standards for weighing and measuring devices.]

SK30X Series load cells from Scaime combine high weighing accuracy and environmental protection.

According to the manufacturer, SK30X Series load cells are applicable in the most demanding environments because the design incorporates IP68-level protection and provides exceptional resistance to corrosion. The combination of a load cell, its current matched output, and a self-aligning loading foot is said to provide the key elements of an accurate, reliable, and competitively priced weighing scale solution.

SK30X load cells also work with the company’s Stabiflex or Isolflex brand mounting assemblies. These specific kits include all necessary features to implement easy to use weighing systems for silos, tanks, hoppers, and mixers, says Scaime. The company also manufacturers pressure transmitters and force, torque, and linear displacement sensors.
