Weighing in Foundries

Recommended models for this application:
RON 2501 Shackle and RON 2501 Hook
Relevant option: Heat shield and internal thermometer

In foundries and other hot temperature industries that deal with casting and forging activities, there is a need for wireless crane scales.

During the casting process in a foundry, additives are poured into the molten material and their accurate measurement is very important. Weighing the foundry ladles using wireless crane scales enables the addition of an exact percentage of additives. In addition, foundry crane scales help to prevent potential wastage or damage caused by excess molten material.

Using wireless crane scales for weighing in a foundry provides two benefits: 1. Increased efficiency and cost reduction. 2. Improved safety since foundry crane scales help to prevent dangerous overload.

In foundries and other hot temperature industries that involve casting and forging activities, crane scales with wireless data transmission are imperative because a cable would not survive the heat. RON wireless crane scale and tension dynamometer series is available with high quality, advanced heat shields. Heat shields provide important protection for foundry crane scales and enable them to operate in the difficult conditions and high temperatures that exist in this environment.

During wireless data transmission, environmental interference is a common problem. Therefore, an important safety feature of a wireless crane scale is its ability to neutralize such interference.

In addition, the RON 2501 wireless crane scales offer a unique safety feature: They will never indicate a different measurement than the transmitted one.
If due to environmental interference, the transmitted and received values are not identical, the system will indicate "Transmission Error". This is an important safety feature of RON foundry crane scales as it prevents the crane scales from displaying a false reading as a result of the interference, which could prove to be very dangerous.
