For example – Sartorius Compact Compression Load Cell PR 6211

wi0776d1-WH_beba205a96The PR 6211 range of load cells is specially designed for weighing silos, tanks and process vessels. The unique design principle facilitates a particularly compact construction and, as a result, the unit can be used even in restricted space conditions.

The FlexLock installation kits counterbalance movements arising from mechanical or thermal expansion or contraction of the vessel or its supporting construction. A particular design characteristic of some models is the thin-film or “splutter” technology. This enables an operating temperature of up to 180°C to be reached. In addition, the small construction has integrated overload protection of 500kg.


Whether you are in the petro chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage or any other industry, our stellar safety rating and $6,000,000 of liability insurance will help you rest assured that you are making the right choice with an installation by JP Bowlin.
