Belt-Conveyor Scale

This application should be used if a device that employs a weighing element in contact with a belt to sense the weight of the material being conveyed and the speed (travel) of the material, and integrates these values to produce total delivered weight.

This application does not apply to devices used for: discrete weighing while moving on conveyors, measuring quantity on a time basis, checkweighers, controllers or other auxiliary devices as they may affect the weighing performance of the belt-conveyor scale.
