Increased capacity and approved accuracy for belt scale system

27.03.2009
Milltronics MSI and MMI Belt scales from Siemens Industry Automation Division are now available for use on systems with flow rates of up to 12000 tons per hour, an increase of 7000 tons per hour.
The MSI and MMI, combined with a Milltronics BW500 Integrator and a speed sensor, now have OIML (International Organization of Legal Metrology) and MID ((Measuring Instruments Directive). These approvals guarantee the MSI and MMI belt scales meet strict requirements for weights and measures applications in accuracy and repeatability.

The Milltronics MSI, a heavy-duty single idler belt scale, is used for rugged applications in process and load-out control. MSI provides instant response to belt loading and overload protection to 300 per cent. The MSI measures only the vertical load applied through the belt and the supporting suspended idler, and is so structurally sound that it can be applied to the most demanding applications. Drop-in installation makes alignment easy and economical.

The Milltronics MMI is a heavy-duty, high accuracy multi-idler belt scale consisting of two or more MSI scales. Used for critical process and load-out control, the two idler MMI-2 offers accuracy up to +/- 0.25 %. For even greater accuracy, the Milltronics MMI-3, a three idler belt scale, can be used on applications requiring accuracy to +/- 0.125%.

The MSI and MMI models can be installed without the use of cranes or other high cost resources.

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
