In case you missed last week’s webinar on belt scales, we’ve put together some of the key points:
Conveyor Considerations: Use strings to align the scale with the idlers on each side of the weigh bridge.
- Each idler should be parallel to the idler next to it.
- The center of each idler should be in line with the idler next to it.
- Each idler should not be higher or lower than the idler next to it.
- Minimum of 2, preferred 3, idlers on each side of the weigh bridge
When it comes to flowmeters, there are some pretty hot opinions in the control and instrumentation world about the inaccuracies of an analog totalizer, and why using a pulse-driven counter/totalizer is the way to go.
After reading some really vicious web debates on the topic, I had the opportunity to test for myself, and I was surprised at how close the resulting totals were, and how insignificant the error was.
