This page describes the advanced belt scale from ULTIBELT that with a belt scale controller. Continuous bulk solids measurement in belt conveyor systems
The standard single-idler belt scale comprises
belt scales are used to measure continuous material flows of varying amounts. Load cells acquire the weight of load on particular belt sections. A speed transducer measures the belt speed. The product of these two variables is the current flow rate. Integration of flow rate determines the totalized amount of material.
If belt scales are not equipped with speed measurement system, belt speed is not acquired. In these cases, weighing electronics use the constant speed value set by parameter. However, this method can adversely affect the accuracy.
Single-Idler belt scales are used for continuous acquisition of flow rates and totalized amounts. They are especially designed for integration into continuously operating belt conveyors enabling accuracies of up to ± 0.5% to be achieved.
They can be employed for a whole variety of tasks
Their rugged design ensures a high degree of reliability and availability. We have the right belt scale for every Belt Conveyor. For Multi-Idler belt scales designed for higher accuracies, see separate Spec Sheet BV-D2050.
