Hopper Weighing System

Hopper Scales weigh a continuous flow of product from a hopper/tank/silo.

High Precision load cells are installed on a silo, tank, hopper, bin or bunker. The weight of the contents can be determined with a very high accuracy and easily passed to external data systems.

This weighing system normally consists of load cells, each with a weighing module, a junction box and a weight transmitter. The weighing module ensures that the correct amount of vertical force is applied to each load cell, preventing it from being affected by non-vertical forces and ensuring repeatability of its signal output. The junction box joins the wires from the individual load cells in a watertight manner and averages the millivolt (mV) signals from the load cells to create a combined mV value that is sent to the input terminals of the weight transmitter. This, in turn, will have several communication options to send the weight to a PC.
