Heavy-Duty Weigh Belt Feeders

November 12, 2008
High-capacity, heavy-duty Model MH and MDH weigh belt feeders are capable of accurately measuring and controlling feed rates of up to 3000 tn/hr. Originally designed specifically for the cement and steel industries, these models feed materials such as limestone, mill scale, dolomite, iron ore pellets, fluorspar, and coke. The units were also designed to withstand harsh environmental factors, such as abrasive dusts, corrosive fumes, wide temperature fluctuations, and vibrations, without any detrimental effects on performance or accuracy. Weighing is done through a patented low-deflection, non-wearing Force Measurement Suspension System (FMSS) weight-sensing scale. The weight transducer is located outside the feeder enclosure. This design makes the scale less susceptible to damage, is out of the way for cleaning, and is not prone to tare build-up because material cannot fall onto the scale. High accuracy is accomplished by using 100% of the scale’s capacity to weigh material. Dead weight of the weigh idler and belt is mass-counterbalanced, thus providing excellent resolution and a high signal to noise ratio.
