ABS-X Hopper scale
The automatic bulk scale ABS-X is designed for process weighing of dry granular free-flowing products, such as cereals.
The ABS-X Hopper scale housing is fixed to the floor or support structure; it supports and encloses both feed and weigh hoppers: A gravity feed hopper fitted with feed gate. A weigh hopper, mounted on load cells fitted with a discharge gate.
The weighing cycle is controlled by the I 400 ABS system which operates the gates by means of electro-pneumatic valves.
ABS XL Hopper scale
Weighing of bulk products during loading, unloading, silo transfer, other transfers, etc. The ABS-XL hopper scale is particularly appropriate for use on food plants, and with storage and port silos. The ABS-XL hopper scale is designed for process weighing of dry granulous products which flow well, such as cereals.
Together with the I 400 ABS instrumentation system, the hopper scale acts as a discontinuous totaliser with non-constant batch weighing. Its simple and yet solid design makes for easy installation and maintenance.
The ABS-XL hopper scale comprises two main parts:
- A feed section which must be fitted under the product feed upper bin. This section is equipped with one, two or three feed gates depending on the model.
- A weigh hopper supported by four load cells fitted on a rectangular frame. This metal frame is supported by the floor or the support frame. The weigh hopper is equipped with one, two or three discharge gates depending on the model.
