Minebea Intec introduces new hygienic weighing module

Published 14 June 2018

Minebea Intec has introduced new weighing module designed to provide a hygienic and robust solution for weighing containers.

What distinguishes Minebea’s hygienic weighing module Novego above all is its overall performance. A variety of constructive details following EHEDG guidelines minimises soiling and provides an efficient cleaning process. Particularly noteworthy examples include the minimising of horizontal surfaces, low surface roughness or the use of FDA compliant silicones. Another plus for long product lifetime is, amongst other things, an extraordinarily corrosion resistant 1.4418 stainless steel that is new to weighing technology.

The innovative product design along with the selection of high-quality materials makes Novego highly resistant to soiling, corrosion and aggressive cleaning materials.

The robustness of the weighing module is particularly impressive.

Minebea Intec CSO Frank Wieland said: “Uniquely in the market, Novego guarantees measuring accuracy even when there are lateral forces of up to 20 percent of the load.

“The remarkable resistance to transverse forces is ideal for weighing such things as mixers, as shortfalls can be discounted. The load cell’s six strain gauges guarantee a high level of C3 measuring accuracy according to OIML R60.”

Novego is also easy to install. The weighing module consists of three components: adapter plate, load cell and pendulum base. All three components can be individually selected from a range, according to requirements. There are innovative details to be found here too: the integrated 360 degree fixing makes incorrect assembly impossible and negates the need for time-intensive guide adjustment.

The pendulum base is also available with integrated inclination correction for assembly on sloped surfaces. There is also integrated height adjustment of up to 8 centimetres to balance the container feet.
