Discontinuous and flow scales
The scales are used for weighing and dosing the amount of bulk (received / issued) material or even liquids. The weighing principle is discontinuous or continuous.
The discontinuous principle, ie quickly and repeatedly the individual doses are weighed out discreetly and these are added up over time. The result is either the amount of material passed (usually in kg) over a period of time or the output, ie the amount of material per unit time. This principle requires a special evaluation unit.
Continuous principle, ie continuous reading of load (weight) data and its integration in time using a special evaluation unit. A typical representative of this category are belt scales, the so-called bounce plate, etc.
These scales are usually used in business (sale of coal, sand, ..), and therefore have an official verification, which is performed exclusively by CMI. (Czech Metrology Institute)
