The MasterMount is designed for vessel weighing. It uses a patented lever and cam mechanism that enables the top plate of the loading assembly to be raised and lowered with a 180 degree turn with just an M30 socket spanner and T-bar. The stainless steel load cell is retained within the assembly by simple captivated pins, thus avoiding the use of fiddly retaining clips.
Lift off protection is provided through the mount itself, rather than the traditional design of through the load cell, which protects the load cell from reverse shock loading. The MasterMount® assembly is manufactured from high strength cast steel and is protected by an ‘autophoretic’ corrosion resistant paint finish.
Special ‘Autophoretic’ Coating
This latex based coating was originally developed to protect ferrous vehicle under-body parts, where toughness, durability and corrosion resistance are paramount. The coating is applied to the loading assembly by immersion and is cured at 100°C, instigated by the presence of ferrous ions on the surface of the loading assembly component. This ensures a very even deposit (typically 15-20 microns), even up holes and deep recesses and gives a ductile deposit that can remain intact even after some mechanical deformation. The ‘autophoretic’ coating gives a good black paint finish, providing exceptional hardness (6H) good ductility, zero to T bend without flaking and high corrosion resistance (> 600 hours Neutral Salt Spray).
