Food Processing

Strict regulation of this industry by the government has its effects on the weighing components selected for this industry. NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) are the most common regulatory bodies interacting with this industry. The most important factors when selecting a load cell for this industry are making sure it will withstand high-pressure hose wash down conditions while maintaining superior accuracy and repeatability.

Case Study

Cleanliness, durability and reliability are key components to products made for the food processing industry. Group Four was given the challenge to design load cells for fruit loading machinery. The load cell had to quickly and accurately measure container fill weights while also being able to withstand repeated wash downs to keep the weighing system clean. Group Four designed a stainless steel load cell that fit perfectly, functioned perfectly and continues to be used in this industry.
