Weighbelt feeders: Retrofit kits that improve reliability

Instead of replacing your outdated weighbelt feeder, have you considered using a retrofit kit to upgrade or rebuild the unit? Or would you like to upgrade an existing belt conveyor with a weighing mechanism? This article discusses basic components included in a weighbelt feeder retrofit kit, application factors to evaluate, tips for selecting the kit's major components, kit features to look for, and the kit's purchase, installation, and maintenance costs. Related information addresses whether a stand-alone integrator-controller or a programmable logic controller is best for controlling your weighbelt feeder.
