Thayer Scale (Pembroke, MA) offers a complete line of High Capacity, Heavy Industry Weigh Belt Feeders Model MH capable of accurately measuring and controlling feed rates up to 3,000 tons per hour, says the company. These feeders are designed to survive the harsh industrial environments that are associated with the steel, cement, and power industries, and incorporate unique design features that result in reliable performance and calibration. Weighing is done through Thayer's patented low deflection, non-wearing Force Measurement Suspension System weight sensing scale. The weight transducer is located outside the feeder enclosure. This design makes the scale less susceptible to damage, is out of the way for cleaning, and is not prone to tare build-up because material cannot fall onto the scale.
