Industrial Electronic Scales
Modern industrial electronic scales are produced in various types and modifications and are used in all branches of industrial production - from metallurgy and heavy engineering to light and food industries.
Truck scales are designed for weighing cars and car trailers in motion - dynamic truck scales or stationary vehicles - static truck scales. Static truck scales provide greater weighing accuracy, while dynamic truck scales provide greater throughput.
Carriage Railway Scales
Wagon scales are designed for weighing wagons, railway platforms, tanks. Carriage scales are static, dynamic and static-dynamic - respectively for weighing cars with a stop, in motion and the possibility of both types of weighing.
Platform scales are used for weighing various goods in industrial production, in warehouses, in trade during various accounting operations. Platform scales are distinguished by high accuracy of measuring the weight of the cargo and high reliability of operation, a wide variety of designs. Platform scales are produced in a very wide range of standard sizes - from small desktop scales to huge metallurgical ones.
Belt strain gauges are used for continuous weighing of bulk goods that are transported by horizontal and inclined conveyors. As a measuring element, a roller block is used, which is built into the conveyor. Sometimes conveyor scales are made in the form of a conveyor unit with an autonomous drive.
Bunker scales are used for weighing bulk materials in bunkers. In this case, the hoppers are equipped with inlet and outlet devices controlled by a weight controller, and the hopper itself is installed on a set of strain gauges.
Monorail scales are designed for weighing various goods transported by a monorail - rolls of film, carcasses and other products. Monorail scales are distinguished by high weighing accuracy, ease of installation and low cost of the scales themselves.
Electronic crane scales are designed for weighing stationary loads moved by cranes in the open air and in warehouses. Crane scales are convenient in operation and are simple in management.
Dosers and dosing systems
In general, dispensers provide discrete dosing of various materials with a fixed dosage. There are also dosing systems that provide dosing of several components in a given proportion.
Dosers in Bags
There are dispensers for packaging various bulk materials (chalk, salt, cement) into valve bags, dispensers that provide discrete dosing of dry bulk materials into suturing bags, and automatic dispensers for packaging bulk materials into soft Big-Bag containers.
Screw feeders are designed for automatic continuous or discrete (for example, into molds) dosing of dry bulk materials with a given capacity.
Automatic multi-component dosing systems are designed for dosing bulk materials in a given sequence and proportion. Multi-component dispensers can operate both in a discrete mode - issuing a mixture in portions, and in a continuous mode - the dispenser continuously supplies a mixture of components in a given proportion.
Weigh Controllers and Sensors
Industrial Weigh Controllers
Weigh controllers are designed to work with electronic tensometric scales, discrete and continuous dosing systems, multicomponent batchers, as part of automated lines with dosing functions and other weighing equipment. Controllers, if necessary, can be manufactured in industrial design, use several types of sensors and can be connected to instrumentation and computers via standard interfaces.
Strain gauges, vibration-frequency and piezoquartz sensors
The principle of operation of electronic scales - the weight of the load acts on the sensor, which converts the deformation into an electrical signal, which is then processed. In scales, the use of three types of sensors is currently most widespread: piezoquartz, vibration frequency and strain gauges. The most effective is the use of strain gauges as converters in electronic scales. The main manufacturers of scales use strain gauges in their products.
