HOLLAND, Michigan – National Bulk Equipment, Inc. (NBE). NBE announces the precision accuracy of NTEP-certified weigh systems is now integral to the design and manufacture of NBE bulk bag filling and NBE bulk container filling equipment. The precision accuracy of NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems measures material weights to an accuracy of +/- .01%, up to a total container capacity of 4,500 pounds. To receive National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP) certification, NBE weigh systems met rigorous certification testing standards; including producing over 7,000 consecutive weigh cycles, each within a +/- .01% weight accuracy tolerance. NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems provide operations, supervision, management, and customer-side personnel the confidence that each filled container weight is certified accurate, that material volumes are precise, material loss is eliminated, and line operations are optimized.
The assured accuracy and repeatability of NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems is the result of specific engineering, fabrication, and design-stage integration of NTEP-certified weigh devices. Typical bolt-on load cells or third-party NTEP scale components may produce variable weight outcomes if not properly calibrated and fabricated to the host filling system. NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems enable bulk material packaging and processing operations to run at designed line speeds when filling bulk bags, drums, gaylords, cartons, totes, or other bulk containers. Within an 8-hour, single shift per-day packaging environment, at a +/- .01% weight accuracy, NBE NTEP-certified weigh systems have proven to reduce annual material waste by 1,728 pounds per year, and reduce filling equipment operator labor allocation by 2.4 hours per day.
NBE integrated automation centralizes the control, communication, sensing, monitoring, and reporting of the NTEP-certified weigh devices into the complete system-wide control layer. A single, menu-driven, touch screen HMI enables one operator to safely direct the entire fill cycle without potentially harmful interaction with equipment. NBE NTEP-certified bulk bag filling and bulk container filling systems improve finished package quality, eliminate material waste and package re-work, increase labor safety and efficiency, and optimize total line throughput.
