Reducing Operational Cost of Raw Material

Reducing Operational Cost of Raw Material

This blog will tell you all about reducing the operational cost of raw materials!

When the existing weighing system at Perspex International failed in service because it exceeded its useful lifespan, it was time to replace the trusted 25-year-old Mineabea Intec load cells and other instrumentation with new products. Read on to learn more about reducing the operational cost of raw materials!

Some Key Facts

Perspex International manufactures acrylic sheet products that have endless applications across various industries. Accurate dosing is an integral part of the production process.


A vessel-weighing solution will control the amount of acrylic liquid that is discharged. Precise and close measurement results are crucial for avoiding additional operational costs. Some products include five load cells Interco Atex 1 PR 6203, five mounting kits with integrated constrainer Mini FlexLock PR 6143, and one Combics 2 CIXS1 Ex-Indicator.

Customer Benefits

The performance and the overall accuracy of Minebea Intec load cells will improve manufacturing efficiency. Like:

  • High accuracy class (C6)
  • Analog output signal two mV/V
  • Corrosion-proof stainless steel

Project Goals and Implementation

When Perspex International started to experience issues with their 25-year-old Minebea Intec PR 6201 load cells, they knew it was time to replace it. Their problems began with a software fault when the vessel was placed under full vac, as the system would then read a negative weight resulting in a system lockdown. Minebea Intec provided equipment and services to Perspex international for a similar and successful installation in 2012. 

Customers opted for service support to help with the setup and commissioning of the weighing system as they felt like they didn’t have the expertise on-site to help complete this effectively.
