Weighing your profits
From conveyor belt scales to automated weighing systems, weighing equipment is an important part of every aggregate operation.
Conveyor belt scales can help you keep an up-to-the-minute count on production quantities.
Thayer Scale says its single-idler Quarry King conveyor belt scale was specifically designed for aggregate use where spill-proof/jam-proof suspension design is essential. The scale features “Rocking Flexure” fulcrums, a pipestem single-idler suspension system that incorporates built-in storage for its calibration weight.
Loadrite says its new C-Weigh 1850 conveyor belt scale features frame options for almost any conveyor; simple, yet powerful, printed reporting; and the local support of factory-trained, industry-leading distributors.
The Tecweigh WY10 single-idler conveyor scale features a weather-tight, one-piece construction. The scale uses LVDT load sensor technology, which the company says prevents the load sensors from being overloaded and makes them less susceptible to damage from lightning strikes.
Schenck Process says its BEMP single-idler belt scale easily mounts to any conveyor frame using only four bolts and that accuracies of +/-1 percent of totalized weight are possible using the Intecont Status Integrator and two NTEP-approved, single-point load cells with rated capacities up to 660 pounds.
The modular design of ASGCO’s weigh belt scale allows for installation and start-up in less than two hours. According to the company, the unit’s low profile minimizes build-up areas where dust and dirt accumulate, and the scale is virtually maintenance free. The scale’s Totalizer automatically calculates belt width and speed with a variety of outputs.
Automated weighing systems and displays can help speed up the weighing and ticketing process, allowing you to increase sales and profitability.
