Dual-Ended-Beam Weigh Module Meets Hazardous-Area Requirements
Mettler Toledo introduces the 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 both 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-pound through 75,000-pound capacities.
VLM3 weigh modules are suited 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.
