Belt-Way products are widely used in the asphalt industry for measuring the production and blending of different materials. The use of a belt scale is the primary form of measurement as our customers use our Belt-Way conveyor belt scales to measure the amount of aggregate used in the production of their asphalt.
Asphalt plants are continuously looking for ways to improve and maximize productivity and margins. Asphalt recycling is also a major part of the industry where recycled material (or RAP) is used to produce different grades of asphalt.
The most frequently used application in the asphalt industry is using one scale to control the flow of another. This combination enables the plant to run at a certain flow rate and blend other materials at a predetermined percentage of the main feed. If the TPH of the main feed changes, the second scale adjusts automatically to keep the ratios consistent. Belt-Way’s Liquid Integrator is used to accurately blend asphalt emulsion with the aggregate.
When recycling material, the Belt-Way conveyor belt scale is used at both the crusher and screen discharge. Each scale will give the operator an accurate total of material that has been recycled. Belt-Way has long been the leader as a scale provider in the asphalt industry. Our scales are used for blending different materials as well as the control device for controlling multiple conveyors in the manufacture of asphalt. Our shaft mount encoder is an added benefit as it eliminates errors caused by material build up.
Belt-Way Scales has multiple options to work with our scales. Our Remote Display can communicate with multiple scales wirelessly and hardwired. Plant Connect provides management with the ability to view the scales remotely from any web enabled device, anywhere. This ability will help management improve production and manage the overall plant efficiency.
Belt-Way scales patented self-aligning modular load cell design allows for easy weigh bridge expansion while reducing the need for constant re-calibration and maintaining high accuracy.
