Strict regulation of this industry by the government has its effects on the weighing components selected for this industry. The most important factors when selecting a load cell for this industry are making sure it will maintain superior accuracy and repeatability. Also, often times when processing chemicals the ingredients can be hazardous and/or explosive requiring stringent regulation.
The chemical industry presents unique environmental and safety challenges that Group Four has expertise and broad experience. One such example is a world-leading gas and oil company that needed a turnkey weighing system which could provide very high accuracy and environmental safety in a chemical weighing system. This application required 55 measuring stations that could provide local monitoring via instrumentation and centralized data capture for the entire production line. Group Four solved the problem with a turnkey weighing system that provided weighing accuracy, data capture and factory mutual approval. Our solution met all the operating standards, measuring needs and safety assurance that the customer wanted.
