/ins Top ten reasons for choosing the new weighing solutions from Alfa Laval
Do you find yourself spending valuable time on re-calibrating your load cells to make sure they are accurate?
The new Alfa Laval load cells are based on a patented digital capacitive technology that features a number of advantages compared to other technologies used in transducers for measuring force and weight.
Below you will find top ten reasons for choosing our new weighing solutions:
#1 Robust and reliable load cells
All Alfa Laval load cells tolerate very high overloads, sideloads and torsion. The load cells are produced in stainless steel and hermetically sealed to IP68 to ensure superb IP protection.
#2 Simple mechanical installation
Mechanical protection devices are not necessary when installing Alfa Laval digital load cells. This is not only an important cost and maintenance saver, but also allows for a hygienic installation.
#3 Simple electrical installation
The Alfa Laval digital load cells feature true plug-and-play installation as the load cells are pre-calibrated, which eliminates the need for on-site calibration in many applications.
The Alfa Laval digital load cells are equipped with up to 100 meters of coaxial cable and the cable length has no influence on the load cell calibration.
#4 Certified quality
The Alfa Laval load cells can be supplied in OIML, while still offering a very high overload tolerance.
#5 Flexible solutions
A range of Alfa Laval weighing modules are available with a host of fieldbus interfaces (Profibus DP, PROFINET, Ethernet IP, Modbus TPC/IP, 4-20 mA, 0-10 VDC etc.). Also, the load cells are available in capacities up to 25 tons.
#6 Fast commissioning
The Alfa Laval load cells are pre-calibrated, which saves time during commissioning.
#7 Minimizes on-site installation costs for OEM customers
The very high overload tolerance of Alfa Laval load cells allows for in-factory installation of the load cells in OEM equipment, which eliminates the need for expensive and inconvenient transportation protection for the load cells.
#8 Easy diagnostics and service
It is possible to monitor the load and status of each individual Alfa Laval cell with the integrated load cell diagnostics feature.
The Alfa Laval digital load cells do not require regular maintenance, but if maintenance is required, the integrated system will alert users, providing fast and easy trouble-shooting.
#9 High quality standards
All Alfa Laval load cells are developed, manufactured and individually calibrated in Denmark to ensure that the load cells meet the highest quality standards on the market.
#10 Patented and trusted worldwide
The capacitive technology and mechanical design of the Alfa Laval load cells has been patented and is trusted by customers in more than 85 countries worldwide.
