A Weigh Feeder is a slow-speed short conveyor fitted with a single idler weigh frame and designed to deliver high levels of product feed control and weighing accuracy.
Where product feed rate control and accuracy is particularly important, a weigh feeder can be set to extract material at a specified rate and can also be used to batch a pre-defined amount of material.
Active Weighing Solutions custom engineers Weigh Feeders to handle applications which range from light / low material flow rates up to heavy duty high flow rates.. Designs can be open or fully enclosed and construction options include epoxy coated, mild steel and stainless steel.
Utilising an EMC ModWeigh 95A controllers, a group of Weigh Feeders can linked to facilitate bulk materials blending applications and to ensure that if any one Weigh Feeder runs out of product, all units would stop. Limit relays are available to provide an output signal to operators that there is a problem.
