Weigh Modules Convert Tanks, Bins, Hoppers Or Platforms Into Weighing Systems

groupimage23.jpgEconoMount Weigh Modules from BLH Electronics are designed to convert any tank, bin, hopper or platform into aprecision weighing system. Bolt the module to the vessel, bolt it to thefloor, connect the color-coded leads to aBLH transmitter/indicator, and beginweighing.

All the necessary restraints and provision for thermal expansion or contraction, are inherent to the design. The system consists of three types of module mounting hardware. Each three- or four-support weighing system consists of a combination of fixed, semi-floating and full-floating mounting hardware types. This is said to result in a checkless weigh system that accommodates moderate amounts of thermal expansion and contraction.

The fixed mounting module design restricts movement in both horizontal directions while allowing a moderate degree of mounting plate angular movement to accommodate construction variances. This module type is installed on only one support to provide a fixed system 'anchor.'

The semi-floating module design restricts lateral horizontal movement, but allows radial horizontal movement and a moderate degree of mounting plate angular movement. This module type is installed at one support only to provide a guide for thermal expansion and contraction.

The full-floating module allows movement in both horizontal directions and angular movement of the mounting plate. At least one, full-floating module is needed in each system to accommodate thermal expansion and contraction in all directions.

All three module types use the same load beams, base plates and assembly bolts. Capacities of 500, 1250, 2500, 5000 and 10,000 lb are available. Painted alloy (standard) or stainless steel (optional) mounting hardware is provided. Module sealing is said to meet or exceed NEMA 4 and IP67 requirements.
