No, because herein lies a significant advantage over conventional belt weigher systems.
With a conventional belt scale, maintenance and servicing is extremely time-consuming. At regular intervals the operator's personnel must recalibrate the measurement and maintain the system, e.g. remove dirt and incrustations, lubricate moving parts, etc. This means not only personnel costs and time, it also means that the product flow in the plant is interrupted during recalibration and maintenance. Many operators therefore decide to make these regular time intervals as long as possible so that the plant as well as its capacities are not affected too much. These longer time intervals can increase measurement drift.
In contrast, the LB 472 radiometric belt scale system requires only a single commissioning and calibration. In general, no recalibrations are necessary, since the accuracy of the radiometric measurement is independent of dirt or incrustations, vibration, belt tension, wind, or centricity of the rollers used. Furthermore, our measurement does not contain moving parts that require regular maintenance. Therefore, we have developed a maintenance-free system for you, which offers high accuracy and ensures the availability of your material flows.
