Accurate and consistent filling, dosing and batching are essential to ensure consistently high product quality. When choosing the right weighing equipment for hazardous areas, the correct classification and the appropriate method of ignition protection must be considered. Installing intrinsically safe weighing instruments ensures accurate and reliable weighing results at highest protection levels.
Intrinsically safe technology provides a flexible and modular solution to most industrial applications within hazardous areas. It is possible to communicate with multiple components through specially designed communication elements. One of its greatest benefits is that intrinsic safety enables equipment maintenance within hazardous areas, without the need to interrupt the power supply and to obtain a gas clearance certificate, which is necessary with open flame-proof equipment. This especially applies to instrumentation because fault finding on de-energized equipment is more complex and time-consuming.
Our experienced, factory trained specialists help you select the right weighing solution that matches your requirements and complies with the relevant hazardous-area regulations. In addition, our comprehensive service program will help you maximize the return on your investments. Keep your equipment operating to the best of its abilities and rely on our qualified support when and where you need it.
METTLER TOLEDO offers visual and detailed inspections for intrinsically safe weighing equipment based on the international IEC60079-17 standard. This standard prescribes guidelines for periodic inspections of equipment in explosive environments:
Calibration determines hazardous area scale performance. With routine scale calibration and adjustment, you can measure safely, ensure compliance and avoid the costs associated with inaccurate measurements. You can also achieve compliance through consistent procedures and adhere to regulations and standards, such as:
If inspection reveals the need to repair your equipment, we can quickly get it back into safe working condition to help you avoid costly downtime. We only use spare parts and procedures that comply with the equipment’s third-party approvals. Our StandardCare and service contract includes repair and ComprehensiveCare in addition covers spare parts. This beneficial equipment “insurance” allows you to keep your costs constant long-term.
