Tank Scale Installation Made Simple

“First Time Right” is easy to achieve when installing a tank scale with weigh modules and SafeLOCKTM features. They protect the weigh module against accidental overload and ensure safety during installation without the need for dead stands or dummy load cells. A short video shows installation of a pre-adjusted and ready-to-install weigh module.

Pinmount weigh modules are delivered as compact units ready to be placed under the tank without any additional necessary precautions. SafeLockTM protects the incorporated load cell against accidental overload during the subsequent lowering of the tank onto the weigh module. In the event that a tank is lowered unevenly and rests on a single weigh module, the load cell will be able to withstand the full load. Thanks to SafeLockTM, there is no need for dead stands or dummy load cells throughout the entire installation process.

Fast installation increases safety

SafeLockTM immobilizes all moving parts of the weigh module and therefore facilitates precise positioning during installation. The mounting holes are directly accessible for drilling and fastening the bolts. This allows for immediate mounting of the tank via weigh module to the ground. This will protect it from tipping over in the event of unpredictable events, such as strong wind forces.

Avoid errors and reduce complexity

The mounting orientation of the Pinmount weigh modules is flexible and allows tanks to thermally expand and contract in all directions, eliminating the need for different types of weigh modules. SafeLockTM ensures safety and enhances efficiency upon installation. A short video demonstrates why it is easy to be “First Time Right.”
