Belt Scales Overview

From quarried stone to flour to frac sand, Siemens conveyor belt scales will measure production rates and inventory movement, helping improve efficiency and flow rate control

Our belt scales combine simple, drop-in installation, low maintenance, and repeatable accuracy for productive operation. The patented weigh frames have no moving parts. A periodic calibration check is generally the only maintenance required. Connected to an integrator, along with a speed sensor, the belt scale system will provide information on rate, total, belt load, and belt speed. Various models are available for special applications, including restricted spaces, critical applications and extra heavy duty loading.
