  Selecting A Weighfeeder for Your Process

Gravimetric Feeders Offer a Window into Your Process
In gravimetric feeding, dry bulk material or liquid is fed into a process at a constant weight per unit of time since weight is a variable that can be captured by a weighing module. Consistent control and complete monitoring are possible. In principle, gravimetric feeding combines monitoring of the feeding process with a feedback loop that enables accurate material control.

Applications
Gravimetric feeding for varying density, material handling automation, long term accuracy, repeatability and quality documentation, and where dust control is a concern Feeding of minor ingredients with high accuracy and recipe repeatability Gravimetric feeding
for higher feed
rates or where
low headroom
is a problem
High accuracy gravimetric feeding of liquids Metering, monitoring or totalization of bulk material flows, or as feeder in high rate applications
Lower cost feeding of pellets (single
feeder). Compact, high
accuracy multi-stream
loss-in-weight feeding
and ratio control (multi-feeder system).
