Ramsey™ IDEA Belt Scale System

Belt Weigher

Gain rate information and totalization function accuracy of ±1% for processes involving non-critical or lower value materials with the Thermo Scientific™ Ramsey™ IDEA Belt Scale System. The belt scale system consists of three major elements: the weighing assembly measures the weight of material on the belt, the belt speed sensor and electronic integrator joins the output signals from the scale module and speed sensor to arrive at a rate of material flow and the total material passed over the scale.
