Vulcan Super-Beam™ Load Cells with EDOC
The highest-quality load cells for on-board scales, better protected than ever!
Vulcan Super-Beam™ load cells, developed and manufactured in-house by VPG, are long-proven for high reliability in a wide variety of on-board weighing systems used in multiple industries. In refuse vehicles, they are typically installed between the truck frames and truck-mounted bodies. In log trucks they are mounted beneath the log bolsters or under the fifth wheel plate and between the suspension and the trailer frame.
EDOC (Electrodeposited Organic Coating), developed by VPG, is applied as part of the Super-Beam load cell manufacturing process. It outstrips common coatings, such as zinc-nickel, and is more environmentally friendly than cad-chromate coating.
EDOC (Electrodeposited Organic Coating), developed by VPG, has been used for over 15 years in varied harsh-environment applications – with zero defects. In multiple tests by accredited laboratories EDOC has demonstrated exceptionally high, long-lasting resistance to corrosion.
