XCMG Group: Control in Cement Mixing Plants

XCMG, China


China's largest construction company, XCMG, launched a development programme to optimise quality control in hundreds of its cement mixing plants. The company installed a selection of highly accurate and robust HBK load cells, supplied by HBK China.


High-accuracy load cells ensure quality control in numerous Chinese cement plants

The largest construction company in China, XCMG, has embarked on a development program to optimize the quality control in its cement mixing plants by fitting a selection of HBK load cells. Some 150 plants will have been fitted by the end of 2012 while a further 200 plants will be built and fitted to the same specifications during 2013.

Every cement mixing plant will be fitted with a combination of 12 sets of HBK S-Type load cells, a Z6 load cell and seven sets of HBK HLC load cells.

The stainless steel S-Type load cell, which benefits from an IP68 degree of protection, has an accuracy class of up to C4 and the laser-welded load cells can measure from 50 kg to 5 tonnes to ensure consistent and optimal quality control in every plant.

The Z6 bending beam load cell from HBK is used primarily as a weighing component for industrial scales because of its exceptional accuracy of up to C6 class and its ability to function in the harshest of manufacturing regimes with its IP68 degree of protection.

With maximum capacities from 200 kg up to 10 tonnes, the HLC load cell provides legal-for-trade measurements at the cement plants. In common with the other load cells being supplied, its robust IP68 design has an accuracy of up to C6. The HLC benefits from a noise-insensitive 6-wire arrangement making it suitable for a wide range of industrial applications. In addition, the load cell is available as an ATEX version for use in potentially explosive atmospheres such as can be found in cement plants.

HBK has developed a strong presence in China based on its factory in Suzhou, 100 km west of Shanghai. The factory, which has been producing high-quality load cells for the global market since 1997, acts as the nucleus for HBK's sales success in China and Asia.
