Analog Vs. Digital Weighing SystemsNovember 1, 2016

When sizing up a weighing application there are many options to choose from. With modern technology and the advancements in A/D converter technology the performance of a typical weighing system is surprisingly good. There are basically two technologies, the more common “Strain Gage” technology and the “Electro Magnetic Force Compensation” system. Read more about analog and […]

Fairbanks has a solid and successful track record in tank weighing assemblies, and the word is spreading. Many industrial processes need and demand weight integration in the inventory holding tanks these processes depend on. This trend is expected to continue as more and more tank users demand integrated weighing systems on their above-ground tanks. With our expertise, Fairbanks is perfectly positioned to deliver […]

Enhancing Scale Performance for Multi-Component BatchingNovember 1, 2016

Batching systems, whether manual or automated, are everywhere. Compounding liquid solutions or blending powdered components into a final mixture is one of the most common industrial weighing applications.   Read more about multi-component batching here.

How to Weigh Portable Tanks AccuratelyNovember 1, 2016

In order for a portable tank system to have high system accuracy, it must have a rigid foundation that does not flex or bow, regardless of external influences. Realistically speaking, no system is perfectly rigid, but a system that limits its amount of flex will increase its chances of having higher system accuracy. Portable tank […]

Robbie Jeremy LogoLoad Cell Application and Test GuidelinesNovember 1, 2016

A load cell is a device that is used to measure weight or force. W hen a force is applied to it in a specific manner, a load cell produces an output signal that is proportional to the applied force. One end of a load cell is typically supported on a rigid structure while the […]

Load Cells for a Portable StructureNovember 1, 2016

During a measurement, weight acts on the load cell’s body and causes elastic deformation.  The body has some spring constant. This strain (positive or negative) is converted into an electrical signal by a strain gauge installed on load cell. Read more about load cells here.

Robbie Jeremy LogoSelecting a Testing, Calibration or Measurement SupplierNovember 1, 2016

When selecting a supplier to fulfill your testing, calibration or measurement needs, you need to be sure that they can supply you with accurate and reliable results.  Whilst a laboratory can reassure you that they are technically competent, or you can attempt to evaluate the service yourself, neither provides you with confidence that you have […]

Robbie Jeremy LogoTank Weighing Woes: Why Load Cells have a Bad Reputation and What Needs to be Done to Fix itNovember 1, 2016

Many manufacturing facilities currently have load cells installed in tank systems that are no longer operational. Most of the times the load cells are left in place and the electrical cables connecting to the controls are simply cut. Production Managers, QC Managers, and maintenance personnel alike have surely encountered “that tank” or “vessel” which never […]

Condec ComponentsThe Benefits of Buying LocalNovember 1, 2016

Businesses are turning to the Internet for a wide variety of purchases, including scales. Although convenient and sometimes less expensive, online purchases can be misleading. Knowing exactly what is being purchased from the Internet is essential— especially if the scale is going to be used in buying, selling or shipping applications. The scale may be […]

Brewing TanksTracking and Dispensing Grain into Brewing TanksSeptember 6, 2018

A new microbrewery in the rapidly expanding Texas craft beer scene wanted a way to accurately track the amount of grain they were using so they could manage their inventory and re-order product at the correct time. Simultaneously, they wanted a way to accurately dispense the correct amount of grain from one large outdoor grain […]
