Thayer Scale has introduced the Model SI Ultra-Sanitary insertion weigh belt, which is designed to provide accurate weighing performance and quick cleaning for a variety of sanitary applications.

The Model SI is built to exceed USDA standards for cheese, dairy, meat, poultry, confectionary, baked goods and prepared foods.

Equipment used for food handling, and particularly weigh belts, must be constructed to ensure effective and efficient cleaning over its lifespan.

The equipment design must also eliminate or minimise areas where material can build up, such as the support frame, belt and side skirts.

With this in mind, the Model SI Ultra-Sanitary 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 such as shredded cheese.

Unlike conventional weigh belts that feature a weigh bridge installed in the conveyor, the entire conveyor assembly of the specialised Thayer insertion weigh belt is coupled to a patented mass counter-balanced force measurement suspension system that allows load cell selection based on net, rather than gross, weighing requirements.

The system is not affected by dirt, shock or vibration and can withstand overloads in excess of 1,000 per cent of its rated capacity without damage or calibration drift.

The measurement system is not affected by belt tension and enables heavy and/or specialised belts that do not provide enough flexibility for use in conventional weigh belts to be accurately used in the SI insertion weigh belt.
