Inventory control with weighing systems

In many applications, weighing systems for inventory control offer a more practical and precise solution than other measuring techniques. With a field-proven Kistler-Morse products, Anderson-Negele now also offers precise, robust and efficient solutions in this measuring category.

14 Jun 2023

Kistler-Morse® products can be found at work throughout the food, aggregate, plastics, power, chemical and biotech industries, in virtually every type of vessel. Kistler-Morse® products are built tough to withstand the most rugged applications while providing companies with the accuracy they need. Kistler-Morse® is an Anderson-Negele brand. In many process vessels, storage tanks and silos, precise content detection is a particular challenge. Classical measuring systems such as hydrostatic sensors, potentiometric probes, or radar often have their limitations. In some application environments, they are not precise, fast or flexible enough, not practical for technical reasons or not economical. This is especially the case with:

The solution: turn your container into a precision scale

They are new to Anderson-Negele, but have been field-proven for decades: Weighing systems for sanitary and non-sanitary applications, wet and dry goods, process and storage containers.

The inventory control by weight measurement

Thanks to a variety of measuring systems, solutions are available for almost all requirements.

Weighing modules Load Disc

The Load Disc weighing systems dynamically measure the contents of process or storage containers and precisely indicate even the slightest changes in weight. They are firmly bolted between the container feet and the foundation. The very low overall height ensures stability and tilt resistance. Transverse forces caused by agitators are compensated. Their compact, sanitary design with polished surfaces and high water resistace (NEMA / IP) class that they can be cleaned in accordance with sanitary requirements in food or pharmaceutical applications. In addition to the Load Disc pressure measuring modules, which are mounted between the vessel and the foundation, a tension measuring module is also available . The Tension Cell is inserted between the suspension and the container body in suspended containers.

Load modules Load Stand

The solid bolting makes Load Stand II a structurally load-bearing integral component and connecting element between the container base and the foundation, and ideal for large containers, tanks and skirted silos. Thanks to the extremely long service life of the strain gauge cells and their easy replaceability, there is practically no limit to the service life of a Load Stand II.


Further benefits

Bolt-On Weighing Cells

Microcell® and L-Cell® are extremely long-lasting, reliable, and compact sensors for cost-efficient inventory measurement in all types of vessels, either with a leg support structure or skirted silos. This avoids measurement inaccuracies reliably due to material characteristics like the angle of repose, rat-holing, bridging, moisture content, compaction. Depending on the vessel type, the sensors are mounted with bolt-on technology on the structural support members and shear beams support or structural skirt.
