Waste Monitoring System for large Plastics Company
July 18, 2018
Waste Monitoring System for large Plastics Company

Waste Weighing to monitor and control Raw Material Input

AWM Limited, alongside one of their trade partners, recently installed a dual scale waste weighing system to monitor the raw material input for a leading Plastics Company. Prior to the installation the company was having to estimate the amount of bottles and recycled plastics going into their process from volumetric data. AWM were tasked with designing a waste weighing system that would enable an accurate measurement of the amount of plastic material being entered into the process in loose and bale form.

Providing the Solution - Dual Scale Raw Material Weighing, Loading Control and Reporting

Waste Weighing and MonitoringThe solution was to install two scales, one hopper scale for the loose plastics and one platform scale for the plastic bales. Both scales were connected to a Cardinal 825 Programmable Weight Indicator which continually monitors the weight input and waits for the waste material to be loaded on either scale.
The hopper scale controls a large traffic light which turns green when the hopper is ready to fill and red when it has reached it's maximum weight. This ensures the hopper is never overloaded by letting the loader driver know when to stop filling. Once the target weight has been met, the 825 Indicator waits for stability and then records the weight into it's on-board memory and adds the weighing record to an html report file that can be viewed and downloaded from any PC on the network. The indicator then turns on the conveyor system to remove the material from the hopper and once empty turns it off ready for the next load. 
At the same time that the hopper is being filled, a forklift driver can load bales of plastic onto a second platform scale that the 825 Weight Indicator is also monitoring. Once the weight is over a set threshold and stable, the 825 records the weight data and adds it to the html report file.
The key to this solution is that the weight of raw material inputted into the system is accurately captured but the speed of the loading operation is maintained. We supplied the complete turn-key solution from the Hopper and Weight Indicator with custom control software to the Traffic Lights and platform scale.
We can Provide the Solution to any waste weighing requirement. Please contact us on or call +44 (0)1284 701222 for further information or to request a quotation.

Future Proof - Evolving with our Customer's Needs


VWSLT Platforms Installed On Customers Site
One of our trade partners recently upgraded four of their customer's standard platform scales to VWSLT Stainless Steel Lift-Tops, reducing the time and man power required for end of shift wash-down at their factory and reducing their manual handling for Health and Safety.
VWSLT Stainless Lift Top Platform Scale

This latest investment follows last year's installation of multiple Cardinal 825 indicators with custom filling software that controls the flow and packaging of their market leading frozen food produce. Along with the upgrade to their new lift top platform scales, the customer has recently taken advantage of the future-proof nature of the 825 indicators and AWM's custom software by easily adding even more key features to their weighing software. The current modifications include adding in automated delays to the filling triggers and fitting light beacons that are triggered at specific points in the filling process to provide the operator with a visual display of the fill status.

Our trade partner said:"Your platforms have now been fitted and look great. The beacons have been installed and look really bright. The customer told me "If they can't see those, they want shooting" I presume this means that they are happy with them! Thanks for your help, I had visions of a mad rush before the harvest started, but it looks like everything will be finished with plenty of time to spare"

"We always strive to make our software and hardware solutions as future-proof as possible allowing them to evolve with our customers requirements".

BX30 Panel Mount Weight IndicatorBaykon Industrial Weighing Systems has launched the BX30 and BX30D panel type advanced weighing indicators. The BX30 and BX30D are for use with analogue and digital load cells respectively for process control, weighing and force measurement.

The BX30/30D design was based on cutting-edge technology and meets the requirements of all industrial process weighing applications with its high speed, high accuracy, powerful interfacing and excellent durability - as well as a favourable price advantage.

The indicator is equipped with a bright, multi-colour and wide-angle LCD display with 22mm high weight digits and a 16 digit alphanumeric information line. It includes 6 different user-languages, a bar graph, and a clear keypad with self-explanatory icons. The measurement unit can be set to g, kg, lb, klb, N, kN and none.

These powerful weighing indicators have approval of up to 10000 divisions for legal-for-trade applications according to EN45501 and OIML R76 for single range, up to 3 x multi range and up to 3 x multi interval. Display resolution can be increased to up to 300,000 divisions for industrial applications.

Powerful Interfacing and Inputs/Outputs 

4 digital inputs can be used for zeroing, taring, clear, print, hold, peak hold etc. and digital outputs can be programmable as free set-points with basic, window and threshold features. The indicator weighing indicator has large memory capacity - 500 items and up to 5 set-points for each record. Multiple Control Modes for the digital outputs enable the instrument to be used for sorting, filling, batching and more.

Onboard standard interfaces include opto-isolated RS232, RS422, RS485, Ethernet TCP/IP, USB ports and an SD card connector that can be used for uploading/downloading the back up files of the instrument. Different BX30/30D variants offer various additional options including analogue output and digital input /output configurations as well as interfaces for the key field-bus in the market of process control e.g. Profibus, Profinet, Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, Ethernet IP, Canopen, CC-Link, EtherCat, PowerNet etc. Importantly, the digital I/Os of the BX30/30D can be controlled by a PLC as a Remote I/O reducing the need for seperate PLC IO modules and additional cabling. The ultra fast analogue output of the BX30 also has very high resolution and great long term stability.
