 6th Jun 2017


We are pleased to announce that a special version of our popular VC3500/LA3500 weighing assembly at 50.000kg, 75.000kg and 100.000kg (50, 75 and 100 metric tonnes) capacity is available with CE marking and approval according to EN 1090 and the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) 305/2011.

CE-mark-transparent + EN 1090 

Silo / tank manufacturers and process engineers are responsible for ensuring that the used materials and components comply with the latest directives. Load cells and fabricated (welded) mounting accessories used for the weighing of silos and tanks bear a static load and they could be considered within the scope of the European norm EN 1090 and the Construction Products Regulation. The interpretation and implementation of these documents will vary from country to country and the client must individually examine their individual requirements.

The specially certified version of the VC3500/LA3500 weighing assembly from Thames Side utilises a galvanised mounting accessory. This product will give customers additional security of performance and will also save the time and costs of third party verification of its static strength.

This special version must be specified from the beginning of the customer enquiry and is manufactured as a special option.

It is important to note that for load cell capacities up to 30.000kg (30 metric tonnes) our unique MasterMount® weighing assembly can be used without the need for CE marking, because it is a cast weighing module / weighing assembly and ‘castings’ are exempt from the scope of EN 1090.
