DVS: A digital load cell with aseptic design for filling machines

DVS: A digital load cell with aseptic design for filling machines

23 September 2015

In a context of more and more stringent food safety requirements, SCAIME introduces the first load cell combining hygienic and fully digital design.

In order to match with the ever increasing requirements of filling machine manufacturers, the DVS load cell allows increasing machines productivity by faster filling and shorter machine downtime.

SCAIME has developed an easy-to-clean digital load cell, thanks to an original design without sharp edges. This design complies with the requirements of the EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group), association promoting hygienic designs for food machinery and equipment.

SCAIME has innovated with a new load cell design for high speed rotary filler, validated in partnership with a worldwide leader in filling machines. With this design, the DVS ensures that the cleaning and sterilization processes will remove all stains of microorganisms.

Beyond its aseptic characteristics and to meet the need of ever faster rates of filling machines, the DVS integrates a powerful controller for signal processing and full management of the filling process.

It thus offers a high measurement speed with several digital filters to reduce vibrations, and dosing algorithms optimized for filling machines at very high operating rate.

The DVS is provided with PC software (eNodView) for parameters setting and to achieve vibration analysis for digital filters adjustment.

Each load cell is equipped with 2 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs for direct control of filling operations and can be easily connected to any automation system via a MODBUS RTU or CANopen network.
