Ultra-sanitary insertion weigh belt built to exceed USDA Standards

October 30, 2009
Built to exceed USDA standards for cheese, dairy, meat, poultry, and more, the model is designed to provide accurate, reliable weighing performance and quick, easy cleaning for a variety of sanitary applications. The unit features a belt that is troughed to keep product away from the edge of the belt. This eliminates the need for side skirts, which is often a source of material build up with sticky products like shredded cheese. The specialized insertion weigh belt is coupled to a patented mass counter-balanced Force Measurement Suspension System (FMSS) that allows load cell selection based on net, rather than gross weighing requirements.
