Vega WeighTrac radiation-based belt weigher

Thursday, 03 November, 2011 | Supplied by: VEGA Australia Pty Ltd



WeighTrac is a radiation-based sensor for precise determination of the feed rate of bulk solids. It measures contactlessly with the help of gamma radiation and is suitable for mass flow measurement on conveyers. Its frame construction allows simple installation and retrofit.

WeighTrac is the radiation-based alternative to mechanical belt weighers: it delivers the current flow rate as well as the summed throughput of bulk solids on conveyor belts or in screw conveyors. The radiation-based measuring method detects material flow reliably, even on wide conveyor belts. WeighTrac can also be retroactively installed on existing conveyance systems without great effort.

Radiation-based flow rate measurement is based on radiation absorption by layers of bulk solids - these attenuate the gamma radiation in proportion to the quantity and density of the material. WeighTrac calculates the mass throughput from the intensity of the incoming radiation and the speed signal from the tachometer.

The Vega plics instrument concept, in conjunction with WeighTrac, makes setting up and operating a flow rate measuring system simple. Setup and commissioning of the system is easily carried out on a PC with the help of DTM/FDT technology supported by intuitive menus and intelligent assistants. As an option, the indicating and adjustment module PLICSCOM can be used for on-site indication of the measured value.
