Siemens introduces Milltronics Weighdeck 600 belt scale
The Milltronics WD600 belt scale offers many features including easy installation and robust, corrosion resistant components that are virtually maintenance-free. It is especially suitable for aggressive environments and the hygienic processing of foodstuffs. The belt support bed is made of Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) polyethelene and the scale is either available with nickel-plated alloy steel or hermetically sealed stainless steel load cells. Fitted with load cells of different size, the WD600 is suitable for universal use on flat slider belt conveyors from very low to medium loads.
The WD 600 weighbridge, together with a speed sensor and the BW100 or BW500 integrator form an advanced weighing system. This system can be used, for example, to determine the instantaneous belt load and speed, or to calculate the daily production total with a totalization accuracy of 0.5 -1.0 percent. Accuracy is maintained even with severe off-center belt loading due to electronic load cell balancing. When used with the PID controller built into the BW500 and a variable frequency drive, the WD600 can also be used to control feed rates by varying the belt speed accordingly to demand.
