Scales and Weighing Equipment for Iron and Steel manufacturing
Weighing scales, weighbridges and rail weighing systems from Avery Weigh-Tronix can help by measuring incoming raw materials such as iron ore or coal, to ensure that an iron and steel manufacturing plant is paying for and using the correct ingredients and operating efficiently.
Train weighing systems can be used to optimise the coking process and ensure that the furnace is operating at maximum efficiency.
Heavy duty scales such as the MaxDec floor scale offer an ideal solution for weighing carts of product (fitted under sections of track) or for weighing finished materials such as coils or blocks of metal.
Lab balances and high accuracy bench scales offer an ideal way to run quality control or metallurgy tests, or for recipe formulation purposes. Weighing equipment is also vital to measuring, reporting-on and reducing waste and reducing finished product giveaway.
For increased efficiency, weighbridge controls can be integrated into a standalone console that facilitates unattended weighing operations. The terminals enable drivers to complete weighing transactions 24/7, without leaving their cab. The result is that your weighbridge can run smoothly without a dedicated operator. This results in reduced operating costs, extended hours of availability and improved traffic management when on site.
Whether transporting incoming and outgoing raw materials by road or rail, or monitoring waste leaving the site, we have a weighing solution to suit your requirements.
