S-Beam Load Cells Promise Accurate Pigment Dispensing

We chose Applied Measurements’ DBBSM s-beam load cells as the pigment is £1000 per tonne so has to be extremely accurate” says Paul Akers, Works Manager at PD Edenhall Ltd. One of the largest independent concrete facing brick manufacturer in the UK, needed a way to accurately monitor the amount of pigment being dispensed into the weigh hopper throughout the manufacture of concrete facing bricks.  The pigment amount needs to be precise as inaccurate amounts of pigment can lead to incorrect colour blends leading to a loss in sales and profit. Read how our accurate DBBSM s-beam load cells and intuitive4-L digital indicators were used in this construction industry application.

Submersible Load Cells Lower the Cost of Large Tidal Turbine Designs

This case study aims to significantly reduce the cost of large scale tidal turbine designs using our submersible load cells. The tidal turbine test rig was placed in a state-of-the-art test tank, where the team were able to increasing the size, flow rate and turbulence levels within the tank. Lowering the cost of rotor blade manufacture would make this renewable energy more economical to use and widely accessible, benefiting not only the UK renewable tidal energy markets but developing tidal energy countries too. Our submersible load cells measured both the torque and the thrust of the underwater tidal turbine design.

Accurate S-Beam Load Cell Measures Cable Tension of Light Aircraft

In light aircraft the flight control system must have correctly adjusted cables to maintain correct rudder movement, smooth direction and precise level and control of flight. Calmet Laboratory Services used a DBBSM-1000kg s-beam load cell to check the accuracy of the aircraft tension meters when applying tension to a cable.
