Typical belt scales

Difficult installation

1-2 day installation, requiring the fitting of the scale into the conveyor bracing, running wire from the integrator out of the conveyor and test weights for calibration.

Moving parts

Multiple moving parts that often fail and/or are subject to damage.

Susceptible to damage

Blown load cells due to exposure and maintenance are a common occurrence.

Rigorous maintenance

Rigorous maintenance is essential; not well suited to the harsh quarry environment.


Theoretically accurate, however this accuracy is never realized in the real aggregate world.

Etheridge Software ScalesTM

Easy installation

1-2 hour installation, requiring a sensor to be installed in the starter and run to the integrator in the same MCC. Calibration is completed with the push of a button.

Zero moving parts

Nothing mounts to the conveyor.

Safe from damage

No exposed parts on conveyor eliminates risk.

No maintenance

No maintenance required; designed for the quarry environment.
