BLH Nobel KIS Load Cell Mounting Advice


Published on

High-accuracy KIS load cell have several features that distinguish it from other load cells. They are easy to install and extremely accurate, even when subjected to dynamic process forces and severe environmental conditions. Due to the double cantilever design, they have a floating load point and are not affected by side forces up to 100%, making them excellent choices for applications with to thermal expansions, vibrations and side force disturbances.

BLH Nobel KIS Load Cell Mounting Advice

  1. 1. To achieve good weighing results, always use flexible connections to the vessel and check that no ladders or other arrangements connect the weighed vessel to surrounding foundation, walls or roof.

  2. 2. Check again the measure "x" between BRACKET and YOKE, and that the lateral play between YOKE and LOAD CELL is preserved. See point 3 and 4. For installations with four LOAD MODULES or more, the LOAD CELL output signals should be checked. Add shims between vessel support and YOKE to achieve similar signal levels. Correct Recommended loading point, check measure "x". Level the LOAD MODULE within �1� in both directions. Control that the load cell silicone protection is aligned with bracket front (KIS-1-2-3-11). Standard LOAD MODULE parts1 2 Attach YOKES under the vessel supports and position the vessel on the LOAD MODULES. Observe that the bedding should be horizontal. 3 4 Check that there is a lateral play between YOKE and LOAD CELL. 5 6 7 8 Mark the hole pattern and drill. Mount the bolts; re-position the LOAD MODULES and the vessel. Assemble LOAD CELL, BRACKET, and YOKE to one LOAD MODULE. TILT GUARD OPTION BRACKET OR PLATE LOAD CELL YOKE Important notices: IMPORTANT! WHEN DELIVERED THE MODULES ARE ONLY MOUNTED FOR TRANSPORTATION! Tighten all bolts and nuts according to engineering standards. Do not perform any welding with the LOAD MODULE in place.
