October 16, 2012
tank weighing systems alfa lavalEngineered for tank mixing, dosing level or batch-related applications in the food and beverage industries, Alfa Laval weighing systems measure tank weight based on the deformation of an air gap surrounding a capacitive sensor. They are non-contact; force is not applied directly to the sensor. The systems weigh tanks up to 220,000 lb., and can be set to an accuracy level of .025% of full scale. Other accuracy levels include 2%, 0.1% and 0.05%.
