Weighing technology - the complete portfolio

Weighing technology from tecsis for the widest range of applications

Users depend on tecsis weighing technology for a multitude of applications, especially when exceptional robustness and precision are required.

One important area of application for load cells is gravimetric fill level monitoring for silos and containers. tecsis load cells are also used in processing and dosing plants, and platform weighing represents yet another use for tecsis weighing technology. Many customers also rely on tecsis’ load cells and force transducers for temperature-critical application

Weighing technology: measuring gravimetrically

The ideal situation for many applications is for fill level measuring to require no access to the tank or container, so that the reading is unaffected by the material, its properties or the geometry of the container.

For this reason, tecsis has developed load cells that satisfy these requirements – whatever the nature or composition of the media. Whether liquid or solid, aggressive, conductive or non-conductive, forming foam, dust or fumes, with large or small grain size - none of these factors makes any difference. Even hoppers or conical piles, bridging and caking or agitators have no effect on the results.

More about the different types of load cells

Innovative solutions – with weighing technology from tecsis.

Gravimetric fill level monitoring makes it possible to determine the fill level and exact mass simultaneously – while satisfying all the conditions listed above. Using load cells and weighing electronics from the F12xx, F22xx, F32xx and F42xx series, it is possible to achieve accuracies of 0.01% to 0.05% of the end value. Take the steel industry for example; no other inventory technology offers material applications of comparable excellence.

Force absorption in weighing technology.

Load cells make it possible to construct weighing systems, i.e. to weigh with scales for different nominal loads. Weighing technology is calibrated in grams (g), kilograms (kg) or tons (t) and to take the readings, tecsis use internal adhesive strain gauges: these proportionally convert the elastic deformation of the force transducers into electrical signals, resulting in highly accurate measurements in the order of 0.01% to 0.05% of the end value.

The principle of gravimetric fill level monitoring

The special force transducers monitor fill levels by measuring the weight of the container and its contents. This measuring method has a great number of advantages in weighing technology applications:

  • Fill level and exact mass can be determined simultaneously, allowing loads to be calculated exactly.
  • This is possible without entering the tank or container.
  • The material is of no importance to the measurements and both its properties and the geometry of the container can be disregarded.
  • The load cells can be replaced easily.

tecsis weighing technology in asphalt mixing plants

tecsis load cells optimize the quality control of the asphalt during manufacturing. The correct dosage of aggregates, sand and fillers is crucial to produce asphalt of the desired quality.

Weighing equipment which is used for this task, needs to be shock and vibration resistant and withstand the particularly harsh environment.
