These systems are able to accurately weigh a flow of products, such as pelagic fish or ice, over a certain period of time. This eliminates the need to collect raw material in trays or tubs for weighing and gives a continuous raw material throughput.
MARELEC offers a range of suitable standard-width flowscales, depending on the setup and throughput.
The flowscales are equipped as standard with a Z2 indicator which registers the weights and communicates with the network.
When using multiple flowscales and/or graders, the yield of different stages in the factory can be determined (e.g. weighing before and after gutting or filleting). The data from the weighing equipment is collected in different steps and processed by Matrix Yield. The yield between the different steps is an instant KPI that can be used to determine which equipment needs to be adjusted or fine-tuned.
For marine purposes. the flowscales are equipped with active compensation for the ship's movement.
Depending on the width of the belt, 2 or more load cells are used to guarantee high precision during weighing. Software integration and belt speed. The flow of products that have passed the weighing belt can be weighed with high precision.
Weighing a flow
Most production processes are a continuous flow. The flowscale can be easily integrated between two conveyor belts.
MARELEC has extensive experience in the fishing industry. All of our equipment has a very sturdy and robust build in order to withstand the most demanding conditions.
Depending on the belt width, the flowscale can weigh a capacity up to 100 tons/hour.
