What kind of Belt Weigher do I need for process control?

Typically a single idler belt weigher is selected for process control. However, at CST we recommend dual idler belt weighers as a minimum due to the increased accuracy and reliability for a very small incremental cost.

A dual idler scale will have a more stable calibration, will require less down time to maintain and will provide excellent process control information.

When there is insufficient space, by all means use a single idler unit, however, we usually recommend a dual idler system as a minimum. If economy is the most important factor, CST would still recommend a dual idler unit but suggest that Weigh Quality Idler Sets be left out. The result will still be superior to a single idler scale. Contact CST to discuss your needs and to obtain an engineering assessment.
