ZEMIC’s high capacity BM24R ring torsion load cell awarded ATEX and IECEx approvals

ZEMIC’s BM24R ring torsion load cell, available exclusively in the UK from Variohm EuroSensor, has been awarded ATEX and IECEx approval across its full load range from 60 kg to 60t. The stainless steel low-profile load cell is hermetically sealed and has an IP68 rating and integrated static overload protection up to 13t. The optional ATEX and IECEx approvals join OIML approval for the BM24R making the load cell suitable for legal-for-trade weighing and load calibration applications in explosive environments where flammable substances are present or where flammable dusts occur through materials processing. The compact load cell is available in seven sizes spanning 63 mm to 140 mm nominal diameter and heights from 10 mm to 69 mm.

The BM24R is particularly suited to high hygiene and food industry weighing applications where washdown is required and harsh environments prevail but is also well proven in process control, bulk handing, hoppers, silos and belt scale weighing. Along with other mounting accessories, a tank mount kit is available up to a 13t working range. Variohm EuroSensor provides comprehensive technical support for the BM24R and all other ZEMIC load cells.
