A quarrying belt scale is used to measure the flow rate and monitor the total quantity of material transported on conveyor belts in quarrying and mining operations. Materials such as gravel, sand, or minerals is processed into stockpiling areas. Force sensors need to be implemented into the belt to be monitored in real-time.
Interface suggests installing multiple SSMF Fatigue-Rated S-Type Load Cells within the conveyor belt. The SSMF is the perfect load cell for easy replacements without disrupting the alignment of the conveyor belt. The SSMF measures and monitors the weight of the materials being transported. The results will be captured by the WTS-AM-1E and transmitted to the customer’s PC using the WTS-BS-6 Wireless Telemetry Dongle Base Station.
The customer was able to monitor and measure the material being transported on the quarrying conveyor belt using Interface’s load cells.
