Increased capacity and approved accuracy for belt scale system


Milltronics MSI and MMI Belt scales from Siemens Industry Automation Division are now available for use on systems with flow rates of up to 12000 tons per hour, an increase of 7000 tons per hour. The MSI and MMI, combined with a Milltronics BW500 Integrator and a speed sensor, now have OIML (International Organization of Legal Metrology) and MID ((Measuring Instruments Directive). These approvals guarantee the MSI and MMI belt scales meet strict requirements for weights and measures applications in accuracy and repeatability.

The Milltronics MSI, a heavy-duty single idler belt scale, is used for rugged applications in process and load-out control. MSI provides instant response to belt loading and overload protection to 300 per cent. The MSI measures only the vertical load applied through the belt and the supporting suspended idler, and is so structurally sound that it can be applied to the most demanding applications. Drop-in installation makes alignment easy and economical.

The Milltronics MMI is a heavy-duty, high accuracy multi-idler belt scale consisting of two or more MSI scales. Used for critical process and load-out control, the two idler MMI-2 offers accuracy up to +/- 0.25 %. For even greater accuracy, the Milltronics MMI-3, a three idler belt scale, can be used on applications requiring accuracy to +/- 0.125%.

The MSI and MMI models can be installed without the use of cranes or other high cost resources.
