Compression load cells
The Alfa Laval Weighing System with Compression Load Cells provides precision measurement for hygienic mixing, dosing, level regulation or batch processes. Compact and straightforward, it is perfect for use in tanks from 300 kg up to 100 tons in size.
Hygienic weighing accuracy – both easy and flexible
- Maximize process uptime with high-precision, high-accuracy load cell measurement
- Cut costs and contamination risks thanks to hygienic, hermetically sealed stainless steel design
- Easy to install, operate, maintain and clean due to compact footprint, load cell management, and straighforward design with no moving parts
- Versatile, customizable weighing solution with broad range of fieldbus interfaces, digital cables and ATEX and IECEx versions
For accurate measurements for hygienic processes, count on the Alfa Laval Weighing System with Compression Load Cells. These capacitive digital load cells tolerate very high overloads, sideloads and torsion. It covers weighing needs from 0 to 100,000 kg and tolerates up to 1,000% overload. Perfect for use in the food, dairy, brewery, and pharmaceutical industries.

Tired of unreliable and unhygienic load cells?
The Alfa Laval load cells are based on a patented digital capacitive technology that features a number of advantages compared to other technologies used for measuring force and weight.
How it works
Reliable, low-cost operation
Because the capacitive sensor is not in contact with the load cell body, the load cells are largely unaffected by overloads, side loads, shocks and welding voltages. Therefore straightforward mechanical load cell installation is possible. This eliminates the expense of complicated mounting kits and overload protection devices.
A standard RG 58 coaxial cable up to 50 meters in length is all that is required to install the Weighing system. A patented Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) directly converts, compensates and calibrates the signal from the non-contact capacitive sensor. Calibration of the digital load cells is independent of the load cell cable length.
