We have designed and manufactured this overhead drum tipper to include an integrated weighing system for use when lifting with a crane or overhead hoist. This load-cell feature allows operators to easily measure and control material flow with accuracy and confidence. Data logging via a computer system is possible making the unit very useful in modern factories and production facilities.
The load cell is housed within the top section of the DRU02 frame, therefore protecting it during use. We have developed this model to be completely fail-safe; in the highly unlikely event that the load cell fail or be damaged, the load remains secure thanks to the captive securing arrangement fitted below the crane hook.
The wireless system utilises 2.4GHz radio waves, a transmitter sends weight data to a handheld receiver; PC connection kits are available for data logging purposes. The weigh scales have an accuracy of +/- 0.1kg and are fully ATEX / UKEX compliant.
