LCM Systems Ltd (UK) - Specialist load measurement equipment manufacturer, LCM Systems Ltd, is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new range of ATEX/IECEx certified, hazardous area load cells and enclosures. This ATEX/IECEx certification authenticates that LCM Systems’ load cells can be used in Zone 1 and 2 hazardous areas without danger of causing or contributing to an explosion when used in flammable gas and dust environments. These environments include offshore drilling platforms, petrochemical plants, flour mills and any other industries where there is a possibility of a mixture of potentially explosive gases, vapours, mists or dusts being present in the air.
As well as a standard range of ATEX load cells including load pins, load cells, load shackles and load links ranging in capacity from 2 to 1000+ tonnes, LCM Systems can also provide customised products designed specifically to meet exact customer requirements. All ATEX load cells are supplied with full environmental protection, ATEX certification and a certificate of calibration. Additionally, amplifiers and displays that can form a complete measurement system for potentially explosive atmospheres can also be supplied.
