Schenck Process, the global market leader in measuring and process technology solutions, announced the latest generation of its SENSiQ® WB weighbeam technology.
For more than 30 years Schenck Process weighbeams, now all branded SENSiQ WB, has been the standard for tough weighing tasks, especially in the heavy duty and harsh environment of steel production.
The latest release from Schenck Process is the world’s highest capacity loadcell with a nominal capacity of 600 t for installation by simple bolting into the given steel structure. This makes it ideal for hopper scales with a total weight of up to 2500 t as well as for hoppers in train loading systems.
Furthermore, the latest SENSiQ WB development is characterised by the following improved technical features:
- Expanded operating temperature range between -40°C and 180°C.
- High accuracy, which has always been a key benefit of the SENSiQ loadcell generation, has been further improved to an error of +0.07% across the entire load range.
- All loadcells of the SENSiQ WB fulfil IP68 requirements according to ANSI/IEC 60529.
Schenck Process customers enjoy the simple and cost-effective installation of these SENSiQ WB weighbeams. They connect directly inside the given structure without moving parts and transmit all disturbance forces and moments with minimal measuring value interference. Plus, SENSiQ® WB weighbeams function entirely maintenance-free in the harshest conditions, offering high long-term stability and high reproducibility.
Typical applications are ladle turret, ladle transfer car, scrap basket, roller table and tundish car scales as well as silo and hopper weighers.
The full SENSiQ® WB range now includes 11.5 t, 15 t, 25 t, 40 t, 50 t, 100 t, 150 t, 200 t and 600 t rated capacity types.
