A Belt Scale System is a specialized weighing solution used in various industries to measure the flow rate and total quantity of materials transported on a conveyor belt. It is particularly important in industries where accurate measurement of material movement is critical for production, inventory management, quality control, and regulatory compliance. The system consists of several components that work together to provide accurate and reliable weight measurements.
Industries that commonly use Belt Scale Systems:
- Mining and Quarrying
- Agriculture and Farming
- Recycling and Waste Management
- Bulk Material Handling
- Food and Beverage
- Energy and Utilities
PS1 - Single Idler Weighing Frame
PS2 - Dual Idler Weighing Frame
PSx - Multi Idler Weighing Frame
Performance Guarantee. Our installation approved by Panatronik, we warrant that PS1 or PS2 belt scale will weigh and totalize to a value within ±0.5% of the test load when calibrated to our spesifications.

Benefits of Belt Scale Systems:
Accurate Material Measurement: Belt scale systems provide accurate and consistent measurements of material flow, allowing for precise production planning, inventory management, and quality control.
Efficiency and Cost Savings: Accurate measurement of material flow helps optimize processes, reduce waste, and improve overall operational efficiency.
Regulatory Compliance: Industries that deal with regulated materials, such as mining or food production, rely on belt scale systems to comply with legal requirements for accurate reporting and record-keeping.
Data Visibility: Belt scale systems provide real-time data that can be integrated into larger systems for better decision-making and process optimization.
Quality Control: These systems can detect variations in material flow, helping identify production issues or equipment malfunctions that may affect product quality.
