Construction Equipment Guide

A & K Equipment, of Watertown, NY, is the distributor of Belt-Way Scales. According to the company, Belt-Way Scales are economical, durable and reliable.

Belt-Way Scales feature an angle sensor that allows a radial stacker or transfer conveyor to be moved from job to job without the necessity of recalibration. The scales can be used to control product inventory, to monitor production or to blend and manufacture products.

The Belt-Way 200 scale may be installed on any width conveyor, with rates from 100 to 1,000 tons (90 to 900 t) per hour. In addition, the scale can measure materials from rip rap and crusher run to dust.

A model 500 is available for applications that require measuring greater amounts, and the model 45 or model 100 are available for lower capacity applications.

The Belt-Way system can be used for inventory control and monitoring by linking to a personal computer (PC). This connection enables production graphs to be available by time of day, by day of week or by week of the year. It also allows for remote starting and stopping for automated load out of trucks and rail cars, and has the ability to be hooked up to a separate printer.

Belt-Way Scales feature:

• use of the latest in-motion weighing technology combined with a scale support system;

• the integrator (digital read-out) connects directly to a PC with Windows 3.x, 95, 98, ME or 2000 for collection of production data; and

• all conveyor scales are equipped with a high-speed computer network allowing consolidation of multiple scales to a remote read-out.

A & K Equipment not only distributes the Belt-way Scale, but installs and services them. A & K Equipment has many years’ experience in the aggregate industry, working with crushers and conveyors.
