Penko introduces a new instrument for belt weighing

Beltweighers are automatic devices, meant for the control, the regulation and totalising of continuous flows of bulk material. Frequently a part of the belt conveyor is made weighing (m/l); giving the load per meter of the belt conveyor. A length measuring device establishes the displacement (l). Multiplying of both values (m/l x l = m) shows the mass of the bulk material, transported over the weigher. Simultaneously the belt speed, the displacement per unit of time (l/t), is established. This way the mass flow (m/l x l/t = m/t) can be calculated. During production the new instrument offers you a lot of information, such as the:
1. Total transported mass (m).
2. Mass flow (m/s).
3. Belt speed (l/t).
4. Load on the belt (m/l).
Apart of presenting this information it is possible to switch off or control the supply of the belt conveyor. So the mass flow can be regulated and a pre-set amount of bulk material can be delivered. The instrument has 3 inputs, 4 outputs and communication via Ethernet and USB. As an option an analogous output and communication RS232, RS422/RS485, CANbus and Profibus are available.
1. Suppress dynamic effects by storing the belts profile.
2. Showing the mass flow, belt speed, total delivered mass and the load per m of belt conveyor via the menu.
3. Switching on and off of the belt and the belt’s supply.
4. Control of the length measuring device.
5. Regulation of the mass flow (option).
6. Switching off on an pre-set mass total.
