Combining feeding of materials with weighing

General applications include the feeding of dry bulk materials into a process. You may just need to confirm how much material you have received.

You might also need to know how much material you are feeding into a process so that you can closely control the downstream addition or blending of ingredients.

In a food processing application, this could involve adding seasonings and ingredients as well as drying of the product. This is important to control costs and product consistency. We all know what our favourite food tastes like and we will instantly reject something different or inferior.

CLOSE ATTENTION TO INGREDIENTS AND SEASONINGS PROVIDE A CONSISTENT PRODUCT

Another reason to combine feeding of materials and weighing is to reduce the footprint of the equipment as you have only so much space. It is possible to add a weighing feature into a conveyor or bucket elevator. This can also reduce overall cost of equipment.
