Ramsey Series 17 Belt Scale System

Categories : Conveyor Belt Scales and Monitoring Equipment

Thermo Scientific* Ramsey Series 17 Belt Scale System is specifically designed for plant and process operations that run at high rates of speed or require the better-than-normal accuracy of ±0.25%.

The conveyor belt scale monitors production output and inventory, regulates product loadout while providing vital information for effective management and efficient operation. The long weighbridge design allows this model to be offered as a highly accurate ±0.25% scale system. The longer weighbridge permits more scale-borne time, which minimizes alignment errors and translates into better accuracy. This belt scale system is available in a two or four-idler version.
Warranty and Service Offering: On factory-approved installations, we guarantee that the Ramsey Series 17 Belt Scale System will weigh and totalize to a value within ±0.25% of the test value when calibrated against a known test weight, chain, or our standard electronic calibration.
Certifications: ISO-9001 certified
