CompuWeigh Corporation
Bulk Weighing System/Weighing Element
Model: CWC Series

Weigh hopper for continuous bulk weighing system for grain or other free flowing granular material.

The identification badge is permanently glued to the side of the weight hopper.

All calibration parameters may be sealed at the indicating element. There are no adjustable components in the load cell junction box, however, it may be sealed with a wire security seal threaded through two drilled head cover screws on opposite corners.

Test Conditions:
The emphasis of the evaluation was on the design and performance of the weigh hopper. The Model PHS – 2.5 weighing/load receiving element was interfaced with a Condec Consolidated Controls Model UMC 600-42 indicator ( CC No. 88 – 066 ) and a CompuWeigh controller model CompuDraft Series 2000 ( CC No. 88 -185 ). Several increasing/decreasing load, discrimination, and return to zero tests were conducted to capacity using 250 lb of known test weights and direct substitutions. The device was sealed and similar tests were repeated after the required number of days and weighments. All test were within the requirements of NIST Publication 14.

The result of the evaluation indicates the device complies with applicable requirements.
