Penko introduces a new instrument for belt weighing

Type 1020-bw.

Beltweighers are automatic devices, meant for the control, the regulation and totalising of continuous flows of bulk material. Frequently a part of the belt conveyor is made weighing (m/l); giving the load per meter of the belt conveyor. A length measuring device establishes the displacement (l). Multiplying of both values (m/l x l = m) shows the mass of the bulk material, transported over the weigher. Simultaneously the belt speed, the displacement per unit of time (l/t), is established. This way the mass flow (m/l x l/t = m/t) can be calculated. During production the new instrument offers you a lot of information, such as the:
1. Total transported mass (m).
2. Mass flow (m/s).
3. Belt speed (l/t).

4. Load on the belt (m/l).

Apart of presenting this information it is possible to switch off or control the supply of the belt conveyor. So the mass flow can be regulated and a pre-set amount of bulk material can be delivered. The instrument has 3 inputs, 4 outputs and communication via Ethernet and USB. As an option an analogous output and communication RS232, RS422/RS485, CANbus and Profibus are available.
1. Suppress dynamic effects by storing the belts profile.
2. Showing the mass flow, belt speed, total delivered mass and the load per m of belt conveyor via the menu.
3. Switching on and off of the belt and the beltís supply.
4. Control of the length measuring device.
5. Regulation of the mass flow (option).
6. Switching off on an pre-set mass total.

Company information

PENKO Engineering B.V.
PENKO Engineering B.V.
PENKO Engineering B.V. specialises in the development and manufacture of high accuracy and reliable electronic weighing and dosing systems typically designed for use in process industries. We also provide OEM companies with a wide range of weighing and dosing measurement, display and sequencer components and products for integration in automated machinery. The ever increasing cost of materials, growing stringent environmental regulations, consistent quality and track and traceability, insist that process industries pay more attention to quality conformity. The basic and most reliable measuring method to warrant all of the above is still defined by weight, regardless of whether the product is a liquid, a solid mass, granules, a powder or a gas. Over Thirty Years Weighing Experience Established over thirty years ago, PENKO was acquired in June 2004 by ETC (Electronic Theatre Controls) of Middleton, WI, USA. Our ambitions have not changed - we are dedicated to supplying the best technology weighing and dosing solutions to clients who depend on continuous and batch control manufacturing processes. Our client base includes the food & beverage, pharmaceutical, packaging, metals, pulp & paper and petrochemical industries. We work closely with OEMís and system integrators who supply the process industry. PENKO Engineering B.V. is a Dutch company within the global ETC Inc. group of companies based in a factory in Ede, Netherlands. Our company is represented in many major industrial countries through a global network of dealers and agents, fully supported by our own field sales and service teams. PENKO is a member of Vereniging Nederlandse Leveranciers van Weeginstrumenten (VLW), the Association of Dutch Suppliers of Weighing Equipment.
