Levermount® Load Cell lifts load capacity.
Thames Side Sensors has extended its family of
LeverMount® load cell assemblies to include a new,
larger mount designed to take 3000kg to 5000kg
capacity load cells.
The innovative LeverMount® assembly for process weighing
applications is therefore now available in a comprehensive
range, from 300kg to 5000kg.
The LeverMount® assembly was developed to allow fast installation
and removal of a load cell without specialist equipment, significantly
reducing installation costs. It has a patented design which can be
safely raised and lowered under load with no need for separate
support pillars or external jacks. Its combination of simplicity and
ingenuity has already proven to be highly successful, with hundreds
of units in service worldwide.
The original, stainless steel assembly is available with a choice of
four single-ended shear beam load cells rated for 300kg, 500kg,
1000kg or 2000kg. The new, larger assembly extends this range
progressively through 3000kg to 5000kg, providing a wide choice
for many different vessel weighing applications.
To ensure durability even in the harshest environments, the
LeverMount® loading assembly combines a simple, two-part
mount cast in stainless steel with a fully-welded OIML C3, stainless
steel load cell sealed to IP68. The assembly can be configured
for radial, tangential or offset mounting, allowing easy alignment
during installation. A substantial lift-off prevention capacity ensures
safety and consistent accuracy. The top plate is designed for linear
and rotational movement to accommodate any misalignment of
steelwork, and to prevent errors due to expansion and contraction
of the vessel.
