In case you missed May’s webinar with Sartorius Intec on load cells, we’ve put together some of the key points:
Let’s start with the most common weighing element: the strain gauge load cell.
A strain gauge load cell can be found in bench platforms, floor scales, and in some cases, tank and hopper systems. It is the most common load cell used in the weighing industry.
The most common electrical strain gauges are thin, rectangular strips of foil with maze-like wiring patterns on them, leading to a couple of electrical cables. You stick the foil onto the material you are measuring and wire the cables up to your computer or monitoring circuit.
Custody transfer flow meters are used to determine how much of a commodity changes hands in exchange for some monetary, financial or other recognized trade consideration.
All custody transfer applications involve at least one buyer and one seller. During custody transfer, accuracy is of great importance to both the company delivering the material and the recipient.
In order to ensure reliable and accurate measurement, devices are certified for custody transfer by a nationally recognized body. For Coriolis flow sensors, custody transfer approvals are mandated by the US National Conference on Weights and Measures office.
