Hardy Shear Beam Series
Shear Beam Load Point Assemblies
Hardy Process Solutions is committed to providing customer value through the configurability of its sensor line. For compression applications between 1125 lb and 22,500 lb (.5 mt and 10 mt), Hardy offers four different configurations of shear beam load points. Customers can choose between two different levels of moisture ingress protection on load sensors, and between two mounting hardware options. These mounting options offer different levels of liftoff and side force protection, thermal expansion, and vibration accommodation, depending on the application requirements.
For demanding mounting situations with side forces (~50% Emax) and anti-uplift requirements
HI HLPS: The Hardy HI HLPS ADVANTAGE® Series sliding load point system consists of a stainless steel, mV/V and mV/V/ohm matched HI SBH04 load sensor with true hermetic sealing and C2® electronic calibration capabilities. The IP68/IP69k load sensor combined with the bumper, slider, fixed mounting configuration offers the best in moisture and corrosion protection, along with best-in-class protection from liftoff (6.6 -15.2Klbs) and side forces, and best-in-class accuracy in high thermal expansion and vibration installations. The bumper slider fixed mount is perfect for agitated vessels, vibratory feeders, and wind-loaded tanks.
HI LPS05: The Hardy Process Solutions Advantage® Lite HI LPS05 mid-range shear beam load point offers the same bumper, slider, fixed mounting configuration as the HI HLPS load point with an IP67 HI SB05 load sensor. The HI SB05 is a stainless steel, mV/V and mV/V/ohm matched load sensor with C2® Electronic Calibration capabilities, and has the ability to deliver customer savings for applications that do not require hermetic sealing.
For mounting applications with low side forces (<10%Emax) and no anti-uplift requirements
HI HLPRE04: The HI HLPRE04 pairs the ADVANTAGE® Series HI SBH04 hermetically sealed IP68/IP69k load sensor with the cost-effective HIMSBRE mount. Perfect for mezzanine level tank, hopper, or platform installations with wash-down requirements, the HI MSBRE mount offers consistent load introduction in a lower profile installation. The blind hole load pin with rubber element design provides stray voltage isolation, minor misalignment correction, and absorbs minor thermal expansion and shock.
HI LPRE05: The HI LPRE05 pairs the ADVANTAGE® Lite Series HI SB05 environmentally sealed load sensor with the HIMSBRE mount, offering the lowest cost shear beam installation. The IP67 HI SB05 load cell delivers exactly what is required for minimally-wet mezzanine level tank, hopper, or platform applications.
Contact Hardy today to determine which Shear Beam Load Point is ideal for your application.
Hardy now offers Dummy load cells for the SBH04 and the SB05 sensors that have the same mounting and load introduction characteristics as the cell it replaces. These are used as intermediate place holders in weighing systems that are being worked on (i.e. welding, painting and moving vessels), and those that require input and output apparatuses in any given application. Dummy load cells provide level control and are usually used to stand in for self aligning load points that require dry runs of the system prior to complete operation.
Welding fixtures are designed to hold a mount into place during the welding step of the installation process, providing alignment. Welding fixtures have the same dimensions and bolting pattern as the load point being used. This helps prevent precision load sensors from being damaged in the welding process. When welding is complete, the fixture is removed and replaced with the load sensor. Hardy offers welding fixtures for the HLPS.
