Belt-Way inline conveyor scales are used to measure raw materials during the steel production process. Limestone and Iron Ore can be weighed as they are mixed in a Sinter Plant. Different grades of Coal must be accurately measured as they are added to a coke oven. The proportions must be correct for the type of steel being manufactured. Belt scales are also used to measure recycled scrap metal as it is fed into a furnace to be made into new products.
Slag is common byproduct of steel production. Belt-Way belt scales are widely used to measure slag as it is moved from the steel mill and processed for use in construction materials such as Portland Cement.
Steel mills typically operate 24 hours per day and must avoid costly downtime. Belt-Way belt scales are well suited for use in steel production because they don't require constant calibration or maintenance.
Belt-Way scales 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.
