Load cells offer hygienic weighing solution

25 May 2016

To meet the strict hygiene regulations required in production, HBM has introduced the PW25 and PW27 range of load cells, which are designed for use in filling systems and packaging plants, in multi-head combination weighers and static scales.

Suitable for use in beverage, food, pharmaceutical and bio industries, the easy-clean load cells are hermetically encapsulated and housed in stainless steel, which makes then compatible with all cleaning agents and disinfectant agents commonly used in production process.

Featuring a clean and smooth cylindrical design that is non-absorbent and free from imperfection, such as grooves and gaps the load cells are also inclined to prevent the collection of dust, product residue or water droplets. The usual specification stickers have also been replaced with laser etching to further reduce the possibility of contamination.

The PW25 and PW27 from HBM are ingress protected to IP68, with IP69 as an option for added protection. The hygienic PW27 load cell, which enables efficient and accurate weighing equipment to be used in fields where aseptic production is required, has been developed to meet the guidelines set out by the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG).

The latest range of load cells from HBM can be easily connected to the PAD series of digital transducer electronics from HBM to digitise signals of analogue load cells or force transducers, even under the harshest of conditions.
