Bunker scales are specially adapted hopper scales. They measure levels in bunkers of a wide range of geometries.
The bunker scale models feature flexible adjustment options. They allow the weighing equipment to be perfectly adapted to a huge number of different bunker geometries. They can be adapted to local circumstances and, crucially, enable precise adaptation to the accuracy requirements needed.
A large number of different hopper scales are needed for sinter, coke, additives and aggregates in the burdening area and alloy facilities in steel plants for example. In such applications, it is very important that the scales can be individually adapted to ensure the quality, economic viability and safety of the precise preparation of mixes for the chemical processes in the blast furnace and converter.
Control measurement equipment for bunkers is also used here, especially when the plant is aiming to run with minimum staffing, maximum efficiency and material levels.
