Inventory management with weighing systems

When do Weighing Systems make sense? 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:

  • Process vessels with agitator. Here, sensors that protrude into the medium cannot be installed. The amount of substance is often in motion, creating dynamic shear forces. In such containers, precisely dosed and dynamically added ingredients must also be measurable and controllable in high precision while the process is running. Closed stirring systems often work with negative or positive pressure.
  • Ingredient exchange containers such as those used for yogurt mixing, which are freely movable. For connection reasons, but also for cost reasons, these cannot be equipped individually with level sensors.
  • Horizontal tanks. Here, a small change in fill level already causes a significant change in volume; likewise, inherent movement (sloshing) of liquids can make measurement by level sensors difficult. Load cells give more reliable results here.
  • Tanks for bulk material, in which a surface measurement can be faulty due to irregular mass distribution (formation of piles, funnels, rat holes, etc.). In such tanks or silos, classic continuous level probes are often also not possible due to their size / probe length.

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.

Weighing Systems

The inventory control by weight measurement

  • provides a reliable, highly accurate and consistent display of the actual content, regardless of its movement or distribution.
  • is completely contact-free, i.e. is not affected by movement, density, consistency or hygiene requirements of the media
  • Remains unaffected by distribution in the tank, i.e. piling, bridge or rat hole formation
  • does not require installation on the tank itself, so can ensure precise process control even when tanks are changed frequently.

Which weighing systems are available?

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.

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.
