Compensators

Clean workplaces and reproducible product quality are of the greatest importance, and are a prerequisite for long-term employee and customer retention. A small component such as the EMKOM compensator, can play an absolutely decisive role in attaining these goals when handling dusty bulk materials.

Often, “unclean” product-carrying weighing system facilities mean that frictional connections form which influence the scale and falsify the weighing result.

Many so-called compensators are much too stiff or even permeable; they certainly do not compensate for oscillations or external forces. Especially with materials which are a hazard to health, this leads to safety-relevant aspects which urgently require attention.
The EMKOM silicone compensator permanently and reliably eliminates these weak spots. The many benefits with regard to permanent elasticity, aging resistance, suitability for use with foodstuffs, temperature resistance and the highest flexibility, make it an essential weighing technology component. In addition, it is a popular choice as vibration decoupling for dosing channels,and as a connecting element between system components.

The bellow-shaped compensator possesses excellent mechanical properties for decoupling vertical oscillations. The level compensator has the advantage that two different pipe diameters can be connected together. For Ex-protected gas and dust areas we offer electrically conductive compensators with the corresponding manufacturer’s declaration. Due to the extremely flexible tensioning strap it is possible to connect different pipe diameters of the nominal size by means of a tensioning strap.

Product features

  • Highly flexible – very low reset forces and therefore also suitable for use with precision scales
  • Air, gas and fluid-proof
  • Made of FDA-approved LSR material (LSR = Liquid Silicone Rubber)
  • Electrically conductive variant (black, without FDA-Certificate) for use in Ex-protected gas and dust areas
  • Permanently elastic and break-resistant because it is seamlessly injection moulded

Technical data

  • Temperature-resistant from -50 to +180°C
  • Spring rate < 0.0001 N/mm
  • Suitable for all connection diameters due to its highly flexible tensioning strap
  • Bellows-shaped and as step compensator for many applications

Product advantages
