Single Point Fluid Damped Platform Load Cell – Kanta King

The T16 single point fluid damped platform load cell, also known as oil damped load cell or viscous damped load cell, is a reliable, simple, high precision and low cost solution for dynamic weighing applications, even with off-centre loading. The internal fluid damps the vibrations of the sensing element, offering faster settling times, increased weighing speeds and increased load cell life when compared to a non-damped load cell. It is therefore ideal for high speed check weighing and filling machines.

The internal aluminium sensor element is surrounded by a grade 316 stainless steel housing that is protected to IP68 by a special venting kit – allowing for wash-down in harsh environments that require regular cleaning.  Its maximum operating temperature is a high 70 °C.

Key features:

  • Capacity range: 5-35kg
  • High accuracy and fast settling time with off-centre dynamic loads
  • Bi-directional overload protection
  • Load cell complies with OIML R60 regulations up to 4000 divisions (C4) for scales according to EN 45501
  • Viscous damped aluminium alloy load cell; 316 stainless steel housing
  • IP68 protection if using venting kit
  • 500mm x 500mm, max. platform size (with load cell placed centrally under platform)
  • Durable polyurethane cable, ideal for wash-down environments
  • 2 year warranty
