Calibration of Vessel Load Cells.

Calibration of Vessel Load Cells.

Calibration of Vessel Load Cells.

How do you calibrate or check the calibration of vessel weighing system. I believe you can hang test weights off them but how are these generally mounted and are the weights sufficient to make a serious change in output.
Any other info about loads cells would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Calibration of Vessel Load Cells.

Often this is provided for in the original vessel installation...a place to set or hang weights. I don't know how much weigh you have to add, but at a plant I often work at the use multiple 1,000 pound weights for this purpose.
