Precia-Molen launch new 20tph hopper scale with ATEX certification.

Weighing specialist Precia-Molen has extended its range of hopper scales to include the ABS-X00 available in capacities from 5 to 20tph.

Designed to fit into factory process areas the new addition to the range comes complete with EC certification to meet the requirements of the applicable machinery standard, and includes EX certification allowing installation within ATEX areas.


The new ABS-X00 range offers potential precision of +/- 0.1% and is designed for internal use, sheltered from the effects of wind with an operating temperature range from -10C to +40C. The ABS-X00 can also be used to weigh a wide range of free flowing granular products which can be adapted to individual requirements, including cereals, cake, wood pellets, waste and many derived products.

Built to last, being robust and reliable the ABS-X00 is manufactured using ISO components ensuring long life, with all main parts surface mounted and requiring little maintenance.
The entire electronic I400 ABS range can also offer functionalities enabling the use of the new ABS-X00 hopper scale with local or remote operation by computerised or automatic control systems. The I400 ABS terminal enables up to four hopper scales to be connected to supervision software via a dedicated PC which can be installed either locally or remotely.
