A globally recognised multi-national manufacturer of build & construction materials, including fibre cement products have worked very closely with NWI Group’s Technical Sale Team as part of some significant infrastructure installations and expansions undertaken in Australia over the last 4-5 years.
NWI Group were able to offer high quality, high accuracy industrial weighing components to help this well known company build Tank & Hopper scales for use as part of their manufacturing and storage processes.
Each Tank/Hopper is fitted with several fully sealed stainless steel INTECO series loadcell, as well as the matching stainless steel Maxi FLEXLOCK loadcell mounts. The MaxiFLEXLOCK loadcell mounts provide unrivalled protection from excessive movement, uplift, overload, and the innovative design also includes a mechanism to ensure lifting the tank/hopper is a simple task during on going maintenance.
Whilst the Inteco loadcell is a wonder to behold, it cannot create a weighing system without other components that make up the “weighing chain”. Stainless steel Junction/Summation boxes as well as Stainless Steel IP67/68 rated Bilanciai D70ES scale terminals have also been supplied to create a robust, accurate, and well engineered solution for this client who demands the best.
The final piece of the puzzle is that the Analogue output signal that comes from the weighing terminal, and provides a calibrated Analogue representation proportional to the amount of product in the tank/hopper at all times.
Whilst there are a wide variety of “fieldBUS” connections available, the tried & proven 4-20mA output suited the client’s needs perfectly in this situation.
With several different “projects” being undertaken throughout this expansion period, NWI Group have supplied in excess of 100 individual loadcells, and around 25 separate, junction/summation boxes and around 25 separate D70ES terminals.
The ongoing and long standing working relationship between NWI Group & this well known global company is a perfect example of how NWI Group provide World-Class solutions, delivered locally.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
