The client needed to have precise control of the salt supply to each truck and easy, quick loading by the driver. Equally important was a large remote display showing the weight, to give the truck driver better visibility of the current salt level in the silo.
To deliver the best possible solution to their client, MTS again selected loads cells from Thames Side: this time 4 x VC3500 double shear beam load cells and weighing modules of capacity 50 tonnes each. The VC3500 solution is a popular choice for customers wanting the best combination of quality and price, because of the following features;
- The very robust weighing modules
- Easy and quick installation (saving time and money)
- Its special design, allowing the weighing module to absorb high lateral and transverse forces caused by wind loads, among other things
- Easy replacement of the load cell (if necessary) without removing the weighing module
- Reliable and accurate measuring results
Both MTS and their client were delighted with the performance of the VC3500 solution. Ludger Henke, Geschäftsführer (Managing Director) of MTS reported “Today, weighing technology should be an integral part of every newly built silo. An investment that quickly pays off, as it offers great mobility in operation as well as in the permanent and safe monitoring of the silo filling level. This is particularly important for optimizing truck loading as well as for controlled and monitored filling.”
