Superior Industries Inc has introduced a new belt scale for dry bulk material handling applications. The new scale is characterised by a unique, flush-mount design, so owners and operators can avoid cutting or torching their conveyor frame for installation.
Superior explained the scale will install without interfering with the existing conveyor frame. Engineers simplified installation further by designing a much sturdier weighbridge than industry average. This robust design prevents any wobbling or tipping for a stress-free installation.
Superior said its integrator – constructed with a large, colour display – is designed with an easy to operate setup and adjustment wizard. The standard model integrator includes an onboard Ethernet port, two independent RS-232 serial outputs (for optional printer and/or scoreboard display) and a battery backup feature. In addition, the integrator is equipped with self-diagnostic capabilities for operators to view setup parameters, load cell signals, I/O settings, speed sensor frequencies, angle sensor readings and calibration specifications.
Utilising a modular design, the new scale fits to belt widths between 18 in. (460 mm) and 72 in. (1830 mm). The unit is shipped with a scale quality, Superior brand idler in CEMA class ratings of B, C, D or E. Each scale is designed with an accuracy rating of ±1/2% and is suited for dry bulk applications producing up to 3000 tph.
