Weighing equipment supplied by Accuweigh was recently fitted to portable silos in order to easily monitor silo cement levels on a mobile concrete batch plant.
The weighing equipment was supplied by Accuweigh’s Adelaide branch and consisted of industrial load cells and digital weight indicators fitted with internal alarms to warn operators of critically low cement levels.
The weighing equipment in each silo includes four Accupoint load cells in varying rated capacities to satisfy the required weighing capacities of 40t and 100t.
The supplied Accuweigh X320 digital weight indicators are totally waterproof and sealed to IP69K for complete protection against rain and dust.
Powered by its own dedicated solar power supply, the weighing equipment can be operated in remote areas that don’t have access to the power grid.
Each load cell also has integrated mounting hardware and under-lift protection to prevent the silo from toppling over in windy situations.
