Accuweigh’s Perth branch have recently installed tank weighing system for Optima Agriculture’s plant in Osborne Park WA, for high accuracy weighing of liquid ingredients used in the manufacture of their fertilisers.
The existing thin wall stainless steel tank required a support structure to be fitted underneath the tank to provide a sturdy fixing point for the load cells. The pump used for filling and emptying the liquids was also fitted to the support structure to ensure the accuracy of the tank weighing system was not compromised by the pump operation.
The tank weighing system is mounted on 4 x Flintec RC3 industrial load cells fitted with restraining mechanisms to prevent any excessive tank movements due to external forces like wind, bumping by fork lift, etc.
An Accuweigh X320 hazardous area indicator rated to IP69K was fitted due to the external mounting position of the tank weighing system. Accuweigh have branches in all states across Australia and provide local state based service support for national clients.
