Semco offers two basic styles of scales to service the produce, fishing, and concrete industries. The BS series (Batch Scale) and the CBS series (Concrete Batch Scale). The BS series is offered in two sizes the BS-150 and the BS-300. Once the predetermining counter on the scales reaches its preset count, it activates a series of timers to start shutting down all related equipment in series with the system, acting as a clean out mode for the system so that no ice is left in any part of the delivery system.
The BS-150 scale
Weighs up to 150 pounds of ice in its weigh hopper. Once the scale indicator detects the desired weight that it is set for, the weigh hopper doors open and closes (Approx. 1 to 1-1/2 seconds) releasing the ice into the 600 pound delivery hopper with 12” discharge screw. The delivery rate is approximately 25 tons per hour.
This scale will weigh up to 300 pounds of ice in its weigh hopper. Once the scale indicator detects the desired weight that it is set for, the weigh hopper doors open and closes (Approx. 1-1/2 to 2 seconds) releasing the ice into the 1200 pound delivery hopper with 12” discharge. The delivery rate is approximately 45 tons per hour.
Concrete Batch Scale
The CBS-800 which will weigh up to 800 pounds and the CBS-2000 which will weigh up to 2000 pounds. All weigh hoppers are supplied with one right hand and one left hand discharge screws to empty the hopper when the desired weight has been reached.
Powered by either a 5 HP or 7-1/2 HP high torque gear drive motor
Weigh hoppers are supported by four independent beam load cells
Wired in and connected to the weigh indicator
Leasing Options Available
A pneumatic vibrator is also provided for each scale hopper, to help insure that the ice slides down the sides of the plastic lined hoppers. Discharge rates as quick as 2.5 seconds can be achieved with these systems. Ice should NOT be stored in these units for more than just a few minutes, as melting and fusing of ice will create bridging and clogging problems. Other size CBS scales can be supplied upon special quote request.
