The WP25 is Tecweigh’s latest belt scale processor. It features a rugged steel enclosure suitable for the aggregate industry. Bright red LED lights are easy to see and are not bothered by the elements as with LCD displays, the company says. The WP25 works with all Tecweigh belt scales and weigh belt feeders, plus it can be retrofitted to most other brands of conveyor weigh bridges. According to Tecweigh, the WP25 can log about 30 days of production and event data to download onto a USB. Additionally, it offers a built-in printer output to make hard copies of information when needed by adding a ticket printer to the system. With available outputs including analog, Ethernet IP and Modbus TCP, the WP25 can connect directly to most any plant control system.

Truck scales to last a generation or longer

Survivor truck scales are ideal for the demanding environments of aggregate processing, according to Rice Lake Weighing Systems. The truck scales are engineered with several features to ensure they last for a generation or more, the company adds, and they provide superior structural integrity to key stress points while defending against damage from rust and corrosion. This greatly extends the life of the truck scale, Rice Lake says. Additional features offer the advantage of reduced downtime by allowing users to streamline routine maintenance procedures.
