Ideal for applications with mixing, agitation and vibration, the new LA85 anti-vibration stainless steel weighing assembly is designed to reduce the vibration transmitted to the T85 shear beam load cell to a lower level than it would be without the LA85 fitted. It's typically used in weighing platforms, big bag (FIBC) filling, belt weighers and hopper/tank weighing in the Food Processing, Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Bulk Handling industries.
The 'LA85' anti-vibration weighing assembly replaces the discontinued 'LA350' anti-vibration assembly. The new name has arisen because this assembly is now associated with the new T85 shear beam load cell from 300-5000kg capacity.
The assembly consists of:
- A stainless steel baseplate and attachment hardware. Part number LA85-BASEPLATE-******
- An anti-vibration (also called 'silentblock') kit, containing 2 x stainless steel discs, 1 x rubber vibration absorbing disc and associated hardware. Part number LA85-SILENTBLOCK-******
The LA85 is available in 2 size ranges, as follows:
Size 1: 300-2500kg: 1 x LA85-BASEPLATE-2500KG and 1 x LA85-SILENTBLOCK-2500KG
Size 2: 3000-5000kg: 1 x LA85-BASEPLATE-5000KG and 1 x LA85-SILENTBLOCK-5000KG
Use of the LA85 accessory with an ATEX approved load cell is possible from 300-5000kg at all capacities except the 2500kg capacity.
ATEX approval is available for all zones, with the protection mode 'ta' allowing use in dust zones 20, 21, 22 without safety barriers - which permits a large cost saving compared with other protection modes such as 'ia'.
Use of the LA85 accessory with an OIML R60 Class C3 (3000 divisions) approved load cell is possible from 300-5000kg at all capacities.
Premium Features at a Competitive Price
The LA85 can be used at extremes of temperature, from -30 to +70 degrees C; therefore it is suitable for use in a wide variety of applications without the need for an optional special high temperature T85 load cell. However, for applications requiring use at continuous temperatures of up to +150 degrees this load cell option is available.
As with many of our other products, the LA85 accessory kit and the associated T85 load cell carry a Five (5) Year Warranty against manufacturing defects as a stamp of the confidence we have in our high quality, modern manufacturing processes and individual load cell compensation. We load-test, optimise and compensate every single load cell individually before it is allowed to pass our stringent quality checks.
Our standard industry-leading Polyurethane cable is of course included, which ensures much better cable protection than the industry standard PVC cable in in environments subject to stringent cleaning requirements using harsh chemicals. Protection to IP68/IP69K is assured due to the fully welded and hermetically sealed design that is suitable for wash-down cleaning processes using pressurised hot water.
For extremely demanding applications, where strong chemicals (e.g salt environments) and stress corrosion are a concern, we can supply the T85 load cell with a special Parylene coating that protects the load cell and significantly increases its working lifetime. Contact us for further details about Parylene coating.
