Modular Belt Weigher

Modular Belt Weigher (MBW)

The Precia Molen Modular Belt Weigher (MBW) is now available in Australia.  The MBW is a single load cell belt weigher intended for applications in which cost is of major concern and a lessor accuracy than that provided by multi idler systems is acceptable. Whilst the MBW is a low cost alternative it incorporates the technical expertise of Precia Molen which has been accumulated over the last 60+ years of design and supply of beltscales.

System Description

The MBW is supplied in kit form which is easily assembled on site.  The cost is kept to a minimum due to the novel design which allows the reuse of the existing idler set.  The system consists of:

  • A single load cell weighing module
  • Two weigh carriage mounting assemblies
  • Two Mounting beams for attachment to the conveyor stringers
  • One display module
  • One speed sensor 



The novel design of the MBW allows reuse of the existing conveyor idler set.  Not only does this make installation very straightforward but also provides a significant reduction in overall system cost.


Typical operational precision of this system will be 1% for a correctly installed applications.



The MBW is applicable to a wide range of industries including:

  • Quarries
  • Coal Mining
  • Minerals Industry
  • Sugar Refining
  • Wood Industry
  • Grain Handling
  • Cotton Processing
