Fairbanks Scales has launched its new FB9000 series conveyor belt scales. The conveyor belt scales are an easy-to-install weighing solution for idler-style in-motion conveying applications.

The Fairbanks belt scale is a simple field-assembled design that can be installed in the field without requiring large equipment to install. It is available in the most common configurations with the instrumentation and displays to service most scale needs. With convenient options like the self-storing test weight assembly, Fairbanks' belt scales prove to be user and service friendly and avoid the hassle of prefabricated modular systems.

The FB9000's self-aligning weighbridge accurately measures the force of material, without the use of levers, linage, or other mechanical apparatus known to produce non-linearity. Its design is ideal for applications like:

Stationary plants

Accurate, repeatable tracking of product totals and ratios are crucial elements of plant management. The FB9000 series offers high-resolution weighing of products.

Portable with angle sensor

The FB9000 series scales are ideally suited for all portable applications. Our modular design allows for installation on almost any style conveyor, including low profile and spine conveyors.

Catenary idler

The FB9000 series' automatic angle compensation feature enables repeatable, accurate weighing on catenary style idlers, such as those used on track-mounted portable crushers and asphalt milling machines.

Loadout accuracy

Rail, barge, truck, and ship loadout requires high accuracy in the all environments. The FB9000 series is known for ideal accuracy at flow rates up to 10,000 tons per hour, and it has built-in loadout controls for automated cutoff.
