Product information "Hopper scale for sheet metal silos"

In various types of tanks and containers liquids, powders, solids, and gases are stored and processed. Weighing helps to monitor inventory levels to ensure production quality and reduce waste. The patented hopper scales modules are ideal for controlling the silo level and extraction weighing. The weighing modules are compatible with the silos by many manufacturers as Choretime, ROXELL or Cordoba.
The D15S-MS is a complete weighing system for the construction of container, tank and hopper scales. The system consists of 1 load cell with load introduction per vessel foot and a balance display. The load cells must only be connected via the supplied junction box to the display device. Since the hopper scale is calibrated at the factory, it is ready immediately after construction.
The installation of hopper scales modules takes place directly between the foundation and the tank fixing.

Certification according to DIN EN 1090

Since July 01, 2014, all carrying components made of steel or aluminum have to go through the attestation of conformity according to DIN EN 1090. Silo scales are carrying the complete silo load and therefore must be certified according to DIN EN 1090. The BOSCHE production process and quality control for silo scales is established to produce according to DIN EN 1090 and to issue CE declarations for these. This CE declaration is required to sell products according to DIN EN 1090 throughout Europe.
