HBM has launched a platform load cell that meets European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) guidelines for applications in the food sector.

Hygiene is increasingly important in the food industry because of heightened consumer awareness and the demand for fresh foodstuffs without preservatives.

One critical aspect is the ability to easily clean plants and the components used.

To meet these demands, the new PW27 platform load cell features a cylindrical design and is manufactured in stainless steel without any corners or edges.

The measuring element and strain gauges are hermetically sealed in the housing to resist attacks from all cleaning and disinfection agents currently used in the food industry.

The PW27 platform load cell also meets the standards for both IP68 and IP69K degrees of protection.

It is initially available with a maximum capacity of 20kg and is fitted with an integrated overload stop to prevent damage from excessive loads.

A 10kg load cell will be available in the near future.

The new platform can be used in filling and packaging machines, in static scales or in multi-head combination weighers.
