Mining

Nowhere is the need for conveyor belt scales greater than in the mining industry. The Belt-Way scale is uniquely suited for reclaiming conveyors, load out, blending applications, primary crushers, and secondary crushers. The Belt-Way scale is preferred in the following sectors of the mining industry: 

  • Metals
  • Coal
  • Oil Shale
  • Gemstones
  • Limestone
  • Dimension Stone
  • Rock Salt
  • Potash
  • Gravel
  • Clay
  • Salt
  • Frack Sand
  • Silicate

There are many different mining processes where a scale is crucial. Scales are required to measure raw material drawn out of the pit. From there it may get sent to a crusher (or two) to convert the material to the proper size. Scales are also required on the feed conveyors to secondary and tertiary crushers. After the crushers, the material is typically sent through a screener and delivered as finished products or reroute it for further processing. Once the material is of the desired size, it is measured on individual product conveyors on its way to the ultimate storage location. Measuring material at each phase of the process allows for optimization of crushing and screening equipment to maximize output and quality while reducing cost.

We currently have scales measuring material in the mining industry at up to 12,000 TPH. The durability and accuracy of Belt-Way’s line of high capacity conveyor belt scales is unequaled. 

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.

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.
