Silo weighing system in Perth
Precia Molen India has installed & commissioned a major project order to one of the leading paint manufacturing unit namely Asian Paints. The project order consisting of 118 Tank & Silo weighing systems ranging from 200 kg to 1600 ton capacity. All the systems are connected to ABB DCS system on Profibus DP. 87 systems are in Safe area and 31 systems are in Hazardous area Zone2.
Load cells with special mounting assembly are installed below the lug/leg supports of tanks & silos. Some of the tanks are fitted with 2 high speed agitators which are subjected to lot of vibrations with multiple inlet pipes. Shear beam load cells are installed with special mounting assembly built-in with constrainers and anti-lift off protection to arrest the horizontal & uplift movements. High capacity silos are fitted with compression type load cells with special mounting assembly. The project site falls under Seismic Zone5 due to which, external loads were considered before choosing the capacity of the Load cells. The load cell signals are integrated with high performance digital weight indicator with Profibus-DP connectivity to ABB DCS system for automation.
