Weighing Assemblies

Thames Side offers an extensive line of weighing assemblies (also called weigh modules or mechanical accessories) and hardware designed to ensure optimum load cell performance in process weighing, batching and gravimetric level measurement applications.

Poorly designed or manufactured weighing assemblies will reduce the weighing accuracy of even the best load cell; therefore we put just as much of our attention into the design and manufacture of our weighing assemblies as we do for our load cells.

Thames Side weighing assemblies offer protection against lift-off, overload, wind loads, side loads, end loads, seismic loads and vibrations, according to the information given on the Product Data Sheets.  When the recommended weighing assembly is selected, it allows the correct forces to be transmitted to the load cell despite temperature fluctuations, mixing torques and inherent vibrations.

We use the latest finite element analysis software to pinpoint the optimum design of weighing assembly, then we select the highest quality raw materials to ensure robust construction and a lifetime of high performance.  Our weighing assemblies are used continuously worldwide, on a daily basis, in the harshest of environments.

For design engineers specifying load cells for new equipment, we can supply technical drawings and 3D CAD files (e.g. in STEP format). For site engineers responsible for system installation and commissioning, we can supply installation drawings/technical manuals.

To assist with the installation of our weighing assemblies as replacement parts for older products that have reached the end of their life, or for retrofit installations, we can advise on the optimum design of spacer plates and other components required to ensure the best possible weighing accuracy post-installation.  For further information about this, follow the links to our Superseded Weighing Assemblies.

We hold an extensive stock of standard products at our warehouse in the United Kingdom and our Global Network of carefully selected Partners also carry stock, so that products can be shipped immediately on request.
