The HydraCal direct force calibration system allows for a weighing vessel or silo to be fully calibrated in the fraction of the time taken using flowmeter or weighbridge calibration methods.
This revolutionary, proven technique can be carried out easily on any weigh vessel with suitable jacking points fitted at each load cell location. There are two methods that can be used depending on the suitability and type of the vessel;
Our HydraCal system is used to push a known amount of weight off a full or partially full system. We jack the system in multiple, measured intervals back to zero enabling us to check the overall system accuracy, the system linearity and repeatability. This method can often be carried out without the need to modify your existing system as most systems already have a suitable jacking point at each load cell. This is particularly good on bulk storage silos which are rarely emptied.
With the correct brackets in place, we can use our HydraCal system to apply a measured force down onto a weighing vessel allowing our engineers to calibrate the system in multiple intervals, often up to the full scale of the weighing system.
Either of the above techniques are quick and simple once the calibration system is positioned. This means that the downtime of the vessel is kept to a minimum ensuring less production schedule problems.
