Product News: New Dual-Ended-Beam Weigh Module

Good value for general-purpose weighing of tanks, hoppers, and OEM machinery

Published: Wednesday, June 9, 2010 - 11:57

(Mettler-Toledo Inc.: Columbus, OH)  -- Mettler-Toledo introduces the new VLM3 ‘A’ series dual-ended-beam weigh module. The VLM3 is now available in painted carbon steel or glass bead blasted stainless steel mounting hardware. Carbon steel assemblies are provided with the nickel plated alloy steel model SLD425 load cell while stainless steel assemblies use the stainless steel model SLD525 load cell.

The load cells meet hazardous area requirements with Factory Mutual Entity approval in the United States and Canada. The high impedance load cell (700 ohms nominal) results in low voltage drop in hazardous areas.

VLM3 ‘A’ series are available in 1,000 lb through 75,000 lb capacities.

VLM3 weigh modules offer good value for general-purpose weighing of tanks, hoppers, and OEM machinery. They use dual-ended-beam load cells to deliver accurate and repeatable weighing. The self-checking design is suitable for static loading in applications where thermal expansion and contraction occurs. Mounting hardware is available in carbon steel or stainless steel to stand up to a variety of environments.

Mettler-Toledo’s VLM3 ‘A’ series dual-ended-beam weigh module provides proven performance for industrial tank and hopper weighing applications
