Choosing the Right Weigh Modules for Your Business

Choosing the Right Weigh Modules for Your Business

Not all weigh modules are created the same…and that’s a good thing!  Fortunately, as a Mettler Toledo Authorized Distributor, we offer an extensive variety of weigh modules designed to fit your unique application.  Here is a summary of the different weigh module models we offer along with some of their basic characteristics to consider for your weigh module project.    

VLM2

The VLM2 is a low-capacity weigh module plated in mild steel zinc and constructed out of 304 stainless steel. The model is intended for general purpose applications, with capacities ranging from 250 to 2,500 pounds. It has self-checking and anti-lift features, plus its stainless-steel load cell is rated for an IP68 environment.

VLM3

The VLM3 is similar to the VLM2, but is rated for a higher capacity. The load cell is rated for an IP67 environment, and its capacities range from 1,000 to 7,500 pounds. It also includes self-checking and anti-lift features.

SWD440

The SWD440 has an even greater range of capabilities than the VLM3. Capacities for this weigh module range from 5,000 to 250,000 pounds, and in addition to the self-checking and anti-lift features, it also has expansion and compression features.

SWB505 MultiMount

One of our high-accuracy weigh modules, the SWB505 is constructed similarly to the other previous weigh modules, but also has a hermetically-sealed load cell. Capacities range from 250 to 10,000 pounds. The SWB505 includes a rocker pin suspension, which means orientation is not critical. It comes with built-in anti-lift and down stops features, as well as 360-degree checking.

0970 RingMount

The 0970 is a high-accuracy, low-profile design weigh module, constructed from 316 stainless steel with a hermetically-sealed load cell and glass-to-metal cable egress. Capacities range from 2,000 to 20,000 pounds. It has the same features as the SWB505 (360-degree checking, dual lift-off and down stops features, rocker pin suspension).

SWC515 PinMount

The SWC515 PinMount is another high-accuracy weigh module, made of mild galvanized steel and 304 stainless steel with a hermetically-sealed load cell and glass-to-metal cable egress. Capacities range from 16,600 to 220,000 pounds, with 360-degree checking, dual lift-off and down stops, and ground strap features.
