Patent-pending hygienic compression load cells
Eilersen’s new range of compression load cells type CL and CM are based on a patent-pending capacitive sensor design which provides high accuracies and a very high tolerance to overloads and sideloads, eliminating the need for non-hygienic stay rods and overload protection devices.
These features, in combination with the hygienic design that meets the EHEDG principles and guidelines, ensure a quick and easy cleaning, thereby minimizing the risk of product contamination. Thus, safety and quality are maximized, and the risk of expensive discarding or recalling of products is reduced, and production waste is minimized.
The CL and CM range of load cells were developed for use in primarily food, pharma and biotech installations but can be used in general to measure compression loads or forces.
The load cells come in capacities up to 25000kg per load cell and are produced in electropolished stainless steel and hermetically sealed (IP68) by laser welding.
In order to ensure a smooth mechanical installation, the new type CL and CM load cells can be supplied with a stainless steel base plate that matches the hygienic load cell design and facilitates the installation of the load cells on almost any surface.
The load cells type CL and CM are ATEX certified for installation in ATEX zone 1, 2, 21 and 22.
