METTLER TOLEDO presents a new white paper, “Weighing in Hazardous Areas: Safe – Easy – Flexible,” that explores how engineers and operators can get the measurements they need from hazardous-area weighing processes while staying safe, ensuring traceability and maintaining the kind of process flexibility required by most successful modern manufacturing operations.
As a quantitative measure, manufacturing-process weighing results are analyzed, archived, tracked, traced and often integrated into control-system feedback loops. These processes can be relatively straightforward in a non-explosive environment. However, add explosion risk and critical data first must be transferred from the hazardous area to one where operators can safely interact with it.
This white paper takes a closer look at a range of typical weighing system configurations for hazardous areas and their benefits, which include:
