Forestry

Belt-Way Scales are widely used in various forestry and wood processing operations.

It is important for a paper mill to track the amount of waste produced in the debarking process and monitor the raw wood chips as they enter the plant. Load out of processed wood materials requires belt scales to ensure trucks or rail cars are not under loaded or overloaded.

Recycling of wood and green waste is a growing industry. Belt Scales allow contractors to charge by weight of material processed instead of by hours worked. Belt scales can protect contractors and customers from profit loss and litigation by offering a simple method to track production totals.

Care must be taken when sizing a belt scale for a wood processing application. The volume and weight of material may be low. Sometimes the belt speed must be slowed to maximize the material load on the scale. Multiple idler scales are often used to improve performance in these situations.

Belt-Way Scales Inc.’s patented free-floating modular load cell design allows for easy weigh bridge expansion while reducing the need for constant re-calibration and maintaining high accuracy.

Belt-Way customers rely on Plant Connect to remotely monitor and analyze production at single or multiple locations via any web enabled device remotely from anywhere.
