World Leaders in Load Cells and Unique Weighing Assemblies for Silo, Vessel and Process Weighing
The T34 Silo Mount is a load cell/weighing module combination that provides a legal-for-trade weighing solution for silos, tanks and vessels up to 60,000kg per load cell, especially in remote locations where the risk of lightning strikes is significant. For non-legal-for-trade applications this model is model is available up to 1,000,000kg (1000 tonnes) per load cell.
The T34 stainless steel load cell is a compression canister with a self-centring rocker column design. Its fully welded and hermetically sealed construction provides protection to IP68/IP69K, with integral lighting protection as standard. It has OIML C4 and NTEP Class IIIL approvals to 60,000kg. Excellent accuracy and repeatability is assured.
For applications in hazardous areas, the T34 load cell has ATEX approval for all zones. Its special certification allows use in dust zones 20, 21, 22 and gas zone 2 with no need for safety barriers – which saves our customers a large sum of money.

The associated zinc plated steel mounting accessory is fitted with integral lift-off prevention check rods, as well as a retention arm to absorb horizontal forces that are typically generated by wind loading on large silos. Expansion/contraction of the silo structure is accommodated by the rocker pin design of the T34 load cell, which allows for movement in the direction transverse to the retention arm.
The mounting accessory and load cell are supplied assembled together, for simpler installation. The load cell is protected from shock loads by a transport plate that is removed on installation. An earth cable is supplied as standard, to prevent any damage to the load cell from welding after installation.
The T34 load cell has a polyurethane cable as standard, which provides greater resistance to UV radiation, temperature changes and impacts/cuts than PVC cable.
For use in aggressive environments where stress corrosion or acid attack is a potential problem, a special Parylene coating can be specified as an option. In high temperature environments, an optional variant for use up to 150°C is available.
