Latest Gravimetric Device Measures Large Loads Accurately

HBM has introduced the ESM (Economic Silo Mounting) series of gravimetric measuring devices for filling level measurements with all types of silos, vessels and tanks that are not subject to statutory calibration

The ESM has an accuracy class of 1 and is rated at IP67 protection. The series comprises two models with nominal (rated) loads of 1t and 5t.

HBM offers a complete range of products for gravimetric weighing that overcome the errors associated with measuring filling levels in one dimension only such as rotary mixers, angles of repose, and discharge hoppers. Other errors may be caused by material properties such as grain size, foam, reflecting behavior, and signal damping caused by vapors, dust and caking.

HBM has over 50 years of experience with gravimetric weighing to determine accurately the contents of any tank.
