  • Beltweighing systems

    This White Paper discusses the challenges, options and solutions for process manufacturers when measuring and totalizing, optionally including regulation of, the continuous mass flow by means of belt conveyors. PURPOSE OF WHITE PAPER … to explain why it is important to measure the mass flow of bulk material. Whether a conveying belt weighing system is of industrial proportion or simply a small system for testing purposes, similar challenges regarding control apply which have a direct effect on cost and profit margins for the process manufacturer. Overflow and underflow have their effects on the efficiency of the process the conveyor is feeding. The accuracy of totalizing has its effects when the conveyed amount is used for trade as well on the determination of the efficiency. In addition to such losses, there is the added argumentation of functioning with a quality management system inside
