cardinal fs mechanical floor stand tank and hopper scale (5000 to 300,000 lb)

Cardinal Hopper and Tank Scales are designed for use in wineries and breweries, soap, oil, paint, glass, chemical, and mineral plants, or wherever a liquid or material portioning device is needed. These scales are excellent for inventory control, for weigh-in or weigh-out operations, for blending or proportioning of any liquid or free-flowing material.

Tanks and/or hoppers are usually furnished by the customer. Cardinal tank and hopper scales can be supplied in a wide range of sizes and shapes to fit almost any individual tank or hopper. The scales are designed so that the hopper or tank legs can be mounted directly on the scale girder chairs or on the fabricated steel weighbridge, whichever is preferred. The shallow construction of the Cardinal scale makes it ideal where minimum headroom is available. Complete blueprints are furnished on each installation to insure that the scales will fit the proposed tank or hopper.

All Cardinal tank and hopper scales incorporate the link suspension bearing system. Link suspension bearings absorb impacts and provide a free-floating platform. The levers are constructed of structural steel shapes and extra heavy seamless steel tubing to give greater strength than much heavier materials of comparative low tensile strength. 

Vertical Tank with Flat Bottom - The scale shown to the left is a flat-bottomed tank and side discharge. Main lever arms are connected under the tank area. Scales of this type are generally designed for use with light gauge flat bottomed tanks supported on timber or steel plate decks mounted on a steel weighbridge. However, if desired, scales may be designed to accomodate heavier gauge tanks without a steel weighbridge by mounting tank supports directly to scale girder chairs.

Horizontal Tank with End Discharge - The tank shown to the left is an example where the scale is mounted beneath the tank with an end discharge. Tank saddles are mounted directly to the scale girder chairs. If desired, tank saddles could be mounted to the scale weighbridge instead of directly to the scale.

Vertical Tanks with Cone Bottoms - The scales shown to the left are examples of vertical tanks or hoppers with center discharges. Levers are so arranged with a center hookup and transverse lever outside of the scales which leave a center opening to permit discharge. Support legs of the hoppers can be mounted directly to the scale girder chairs or, if desired, a steel weighbridge could be used under the hoppers.

The scales, balances and load cells are essential for ensuring the accuracy of measurements, especially for companies working in production and industrial areas. However, scales and balances are used in many other industries, but also by householders and individuals. The scales and balances are used to measure the mass weigh or weight in consumption of water, electrical energy, but also for measuring the weigh of physical objects. In order to keep the same units all over the world, so confusions won’t be made, international measurements were introduced, and the scales and balances made today must keep count of those matters.


The international standards for scales, balances and load cell are made by organizations such OIML, NTEP, NIST and ASTM.. Those standards must be made in the area of weigh and mass measuring instruments, but also for control devices for mass, weigh, water, gas, electricity and heat. Once those standards are imposed, the companies producing such instruments must comply with those, and only the best companies are able to do so. It is a pity that so many consumers and buyers of scales, balances and load cell don’t actually check if they buy approved and tested precision weighing balance and scales devices, and this could lead to disastrous effects on the long term.


Product pre-packing represents the process of weighing, wrapping and packing materials before those are labeled. The weight content of packages must be measured, in order to determine the quantity of product inside in pounds (lb), kilograms (kg), grams (gr), Ounces (oz) etc. Here, the scales market metrology has an important role. This science allows the producers and authorities to verify the dimensions and weight of all the pre-packed products, and to verify the dimensions of those products using precise scales and balances in the market. For example, detergents, food for pets, ice cream, pharmaceutical products, textile products, beverage market industry, concrete and cement, jewelry like gold, silver, diamonds, animal and cattle farm market production, steel production, chemical products, pharmacy scales, load cell manufacturing, retail industry like super markets, medical applications, frozen aliments, transportation and any other retail product must be verified.

The scales, balances and load cell are important especially in Europe and United States of America, where alcohol and wine is the subject of regulations and special taxes. The quantities must be verified precisely, so the authorities could establish what taxes should be paid by the producers of those market products and services.


The modular weights measurements elements are at the base of automated testing systems. With the help of modular instruments, the engineers can choose a large variety of measuring instruments and data. Moreover, the weighted dimensions must be ready to be transferred in computer programs, where they can be used for multiple purposes.

As the respective instruments are modular and defined with the program, they can be changed at any time and redefined whenever the user needs those. This is why modular scale, balances and load cell respond to the dynamic and testing needs of clients. The virtual measuring instruments can be used for high-speed test, in a virtual environment that depends only of the limits of the computers technology.

The oscilloscopes are used in high precision scale, balances and load cell with a high resolution and precision, which can be modified to meet the demands of clients. Besides those, there are also the signal generators that must be measured from many points of view. As the owner of a production company, you will have to make sure that you are using high precision instruments that would allow you to avoid severe mistakes.
