VC3500 Double shear beam, 2t

IP68, IP69K, St.steel

Varenr: VC3500-2T

A high accuracy load cell/mounting accessory combination for large silo, tank, hopper or vessel weighing.  It is an excellent solution for most high capacity applications, whether in harsh wash-down environments or hazardous areas where there is a risk of explosion.  Its special certification allows use in ATEX dust zones 20, 21, 22 and gas zone 2 with no need for safety barriers – which saves our customers large amounts of money.

Approval to EN 1090 with CE marking is available as an option for selected capacities - contact us for further details.

The double shear beam load cell is manufactured from high strength 17-4PH stainless steel and available in capacities from 2,000kg (2 tonnes) to 200,000kg (200 tonnes).  For more than 20 years, it has been known worldwide as a leading load cell for high capacity weighing, thanks in part to its fully welded and hermetically sealed design, giving protection to IP68 and IP69K, as well as its approval to both ATEX and IECEx directives.

Clients looking for silo, tank and vessel weighing solutions with an excellent quality/price ratio trust the VC3500 to meet and exceed their requirements worldwide.

The high strength, robust alloy steel mounting accessory is available with a zinc plated finish as standard, with options of galvanising, special paint or a stainless steel construction.  It allows for significant vessel expansion/contraction without affecting the load cell performance.  Integrated holding bolts facilitate routine maintenance and simpler installation on capacities up to 75 tonnes.  This eliminates the need for expensive installation work, giving a very cost-effective total solution.

The VC3500 was originally devised to offer high resistance to earthquakes and strong winds, so its rugged design can withstand significant lateral, longitudinal, vertical and lift-off forces.  Therefore in many cases there is no need for additional restraint bars.
