A Solution for the Aggregates Industry
In order to meet this growth a new three silo drum plant was commissioned to replace the existing one-silo batch plant at the Glen Burnie site. To match the new plant configuration (three product drops to distribute material) and Maryland requirements, a longer, wider scale would be needed.
METTLER TOLEDO first supplied Reliable with scales and service over fifteen years ago. According to Plant Manager, George White, “The product is top of the line. And you can’t beat the service, which is critical for our business. We can call any time and METTLER TOLEDO is right there. We shopped around for the new scale, but no one could match METTLER TOLEDO’s product and service.” George also commented on the installation of a new scale at the Crofton site in 2004. “When the plant was shut down for three days over the holidays, METTLER TOLEDO came in, installed the new steel deck scale and everything was up and running upon restart with no disruption of service to our customers.”
Reliable chose a model 7562 TRUCKMATE 70’x11’ steel deck scale for the Glen Burnie site. The foundations and scale were installed first and steel supports and silos constructed above the scale. To ensure accurate and precise weight, data feeds to their automatic fill and cutoff system. A JAGXTREME indicator was also chosen.
Since the installation of the new system, White says he has already seen an improvement in plant throughput.
