Easy and safe filling

The easy to use indicator can store up to 20 bottle tare weights in its memory, saving valuable operator time. The bottle tare weight self-cancels when the bottle is removed from the scale, ensuring that the operator enters the correct tare for the next bottle, an important safety feature as bottle tare weights can often differ from one to another. The indicator’s automatic dosing routing ensures an optimum fill on every bottle.

Data capture

The indicator collects data which can be transferred in real time by an optional serial output to PC via a safe area transceiver. Data caputure includes: total net weight of gas filled, fill time, residue, tare weight, date and time.
