The Deeter Group, a company that designs, develops and manufactures electronic sensors and control systems, have added a wide range of ATEX certified load cells for industrial weighing applications to their range of ATEX and IECEx approved liquid level sensors.
The new range of load cells are available in lever mount, cantilever, shear beam, folded shear beam and master mount form factors and can measure weights from 10Kg for process weighing up to 50 Tonnes for silo, tank and vessel weighing applications.
Intended for use in hazardous environments the new Deeter load cells meet the requirements of ATEX Directive 94/9/EC, the mandatory requirement for all equipment intended for use in a potentially explosive environment. Many manufacturing processes, including biodiesel production, generate potentially explosive atmospheres and European Directive 137 – The protection of workers from potentially explosive atmospheres – makes it mandatory under European law to assess for an explosion risk and classify the area accordingly.
Commenting Peter Whiteaker, Managing Director of Deeter Group, said ”We are continuing to grow our range of ATEX approved sensors in order to offer our customers a one-stop-shop for sensors and wireless measuring systems for process control and measuring systems.”
The new Deeter load cells may be used in applications as diverse as; weigh platforms, tank and vessel weighing, bag filling machines and conveyors, belt weighers and tank weighing, mixers, catalyst vessels, axle weighers and weighbridges, silo and vessel weighing. Typical industries include food processing, chemical, pharmaceutical and general bulk handling industries and materials storage.
