Sand and Gravel is a vital component of the construction industry.

The following are a few applications where Sand or Gravel is utilized:

  • Glass
  • Concrete
  • Asphalt
  • Rail Road Ballast
  • Water filtration
  • Frac Sand

Sand and Gravel plants use Belt-Way conveyor belt scales through the entire process. The process typically starts with the dredge pumping the sludge to the wash plant. Once washed, it is sized and separated into different products. The Belt-Way scale on the feed measures the production of the sand and gravel plant. The plant typically has Belt-Way Scales on each product belt to measure the rate of production and get accurate totals for inventory tracking.

Belt-Way scales are used to measure material loaded onto trucks or rail cars. This helps to ensure maximum efficiency by correctly filling the container before it crosses a certified scale.

This helps our customers avoid hefty delays in product shipment, fines and fuel waste.

Producers use our scales coupled to Plant Connect to manage and analyze the production and data remotely. It enables managers with multiple locations to keep their fingers on the pulse of their operation from anywhere in the world.

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.
