Conveyer belt scales PRODAT BW, operated in several brown coal opencast mining
facilities throughout Germany, can be installed at any position in horizontal
and sloping conveyer belts in addition is a modernization of existing facilities
The advantages of the belt scales PRODAT BW are their simple construction
and easy installation possibilities. The system is very robust and has no
parts that can wear out. Therefore maintenance work is reduced to visual and
PRODAT BW system installed as early as in 1986, have been and still are working
without any mayor breakdown. All offered scales are also always equipped with
the newest measurement evaluation hardware.
function and measurement method
PRODAT BW system determines mass-forces with special transverse force sensors,
which number depends on the installed scale type and can range between two
and four load cells measuring the mass stream.
The constructive integration is individually adapted to every conveyer belt.
The most important criteria, regarding conveyers with garlands and fixed bear
roller frames, is a simple and maintenance reduced conveyer belt scale construction.
PRODAT BW types depend on their intended application field.
PRODAT BW types
PRODAT BW types depend on their intended application field. The first type
is especially intended for monitoring and measurement tasks with normal exactness:
- One roll conveyer belt scales: measuring with two sensors on a relatively
short measurement track
- Two roll conveyer belt scales: measuring on two garlands with four sensors
For measurement tasks demanding high exactness PRODAT provides the following
- Scaffold field conveyer belt scales: measuring (section up to 6 m) with
four transversal force sensors on which a field with several garlands rests
