AFC integrates conveying and weighing for speed and accuracy

This new batch-weigh system automatically transfers, weighs, and dispenses precise amounts of powders, pellets, flakes, and other bulk materials into mixers, hoppers, tanks, vessels and containers.

Achieving 99% or better batch weighing accuracy, the batch-weigh system replaces manual and semi-automated processes with a fully automated approach that eliminates the potential for operator error, increases throughput, and promotes batch-to-batch product consistency. Costly material waste and quality control concerns due to over- and/or under-weighments are eliminated.

Suitable for installation in any sanitary, hazardous, and non-hazardous production environment, the dust-tight batch-weigh system integrates the company's Spiralfeeder flexible screw conveyor with companion infeed hopper, weigh hopper, load cells, pneumatic slide gate, and proprietary drive with integral seals. Featuring integrated, PLC-based process controls, the weighing and conveying system may be easily configured to manage one or multiple materials fed from one or multiple equipment locations to a common discharge location. Multiple recipes may be stored and recalled for fast startup and error-free production.
