Belt Scales are used in many industries and applications


The list  above is a sampling of the many industries that use belt scales.

Belt scales are used to blend products such as colored mineral fines for composite roof shingles, where one belt runs at a % of another belt. Some applications require the belt to provide a consistent flow of material at a desired rate. Using an I/O communication card with a PID 4-20 ma signal to a variable speed drive, a consistent flow rate can be achieved.  The I/O communication card can provide alarm outputs for low & high belt speeds, minimum and maximum flow rates, pulse outputs based on weight and more.....

 If any material or commodity is worth moving, then there is a good chance it is worth weighing.

 The simplicity of the Belt-Way the design allows for easy installation on any conveyor weighing any material

 Here are some of the most popular applications:

Portable Plants  — The patented Belt-Way weighbridge design eliminates the adverse  effects of torque on the conveyor frame and excessive vibration known to  exist on portable equipment. The result is excellent repeat-ability.  Many managers have stated Belt-Way is, “The only scale you can  trust.”          

Mobile Conveyors  — Uniquely suited to portable conveyor weighing tasks, Belt-Way offers  reliable performance without the need for constant re-calibration.

Stationary Conveyors  — Accurate conveyor weighing allows tracking of feed rates and ratios  of each finished product; necessary to achieve optimum efficiency and  product quality, while maintaining production at maximum levels. 

Crushing — Internal P.I.D. loop control automates control of material feed. This is where performance optimization begins. 

Mobile Crushing  — Contract crushing operations depend on accurate material measurement  for verification of production. Print daily tickets or log production  data to an off-site server. Learn more about production analysis options  at

Screening  — Material feed and ratios of each product coming off the screens  (along with returns) must be closely monitored to maintain high quality  product at maximum production levels. 

Mobile Screening  — The versatility of the modular Belt-Way design fits any width  conveyor. The weighbridge is adaptable to any style top mount or  recessed idler. 

Pugmills  — Connect all Belt-Way conveyor belt scales to your control system, or  use our on-board P.I.D. loop control to accomplish blending of any  number of materials. 

Transloaders  — The most successful original equipment manufacturers supply Belt-Way  conveyor belt scales as standard components on their transloaders. 

Truck, Rail, Ship & Barge Load-Out — The Belt-Way dual idler scale  is the most popular choice for accurate load-out. Monitor and control  manually, or automate load-out using the optional remote start/stop  station with ticket printer.
