The EBW 10 is a single-idler belt scale and is suitable for universal applications in almost every conveyors with belt widths up to 1,000 mm and flow rates up to 1,000 t/h.
The belt scale EBW 10 is optimally used for weighing and dosing of bulk materials such as coal and other energy source, e.g. wood pellets, for recycling materials, in waste management, in the pit and quarry industry, but also for weighing and dosing of grain, animal feed and plastics.
The EBW 10 has a simple mechanical design. Part of the scale is a frame in which the weighing frame (load carrier) is mounted elastically and torsion-proof on the load cell and spring steels. A low installation depth allows the use in belt constructions with a small interspace between upper and lower belt.
The load cell of EBW 10 is made of stainless steel and hermetically sealed (protection IP 68). The weighing platform contains a high precision strain gauge load cell which is secured by a transport and overload protection.
As standard, the EBW 10 is made of galvanized angle steel profile, alternatively additional painted or optionally made of stainless steel.
The belt scale can be easily mounted in belt conveyors. The scales’ support spars are easily screwed upon the conveyer. By exchanging the spars, the scale can quickly be adjusted to another belt width.
The material flow rate on the conveyer results in a pressure load on the weighing platform of the belt scale EBW 10 which is recorded by the strain gauge load cell. At the same time, the measuring wheel running simultaneously on the lower belt and records the current belt speed.
The weight value of the material on the measuring station and the speed value of the conveyer belt combine to give the overall flow rate in tons per hour.
