Brisbane based Scale Components provide professional beltweigher servicing and maintenance. Their fully trained staff can service and calibrate all brands in all states.

Scale Components recently completed extensive servicing and maintenance at a colliery located west of Brisbane. Beltweigher maintenance tasks included:

  • The relocation of a dual-idler beltweigher
  • Chain calibration of all beltweighers
  • Multiple idler roller replacement and six-point alignment of three beltweighers
  • Service of all beltweighers
The relocation was required to minimise exposure to environmental conditions, including wind that was affecting accuracy. Multiple idler rollers were replaced over the four beltweighers to reduce inherent vibration caused by out-of-balance (or out-of round) rollers which contribute significantly to weighing errors, can cause bearing failure and lead to ultimate system breakdown.

The lead-in, weigh frame and lead-out rollers were all correctly aligned and height adjusted to increase weighing consistency and overall accuracy. Each beltweigher was then tested using chains to ensure correct calibration.
