SOLUTIONS BY APPLICATION

MAKE | Batching & Blending

Batch manufacturing involves sequentially or simultaneously adding one or more ingredients into a vessel by weight and then discharging the batch (sum of all the ingredients) to a downstream process. The vessel can be a simple hopper or tank, or could contain a built-in mixer, an agitator, or heating and cooling jacket. Ingredients are conveyed, extruded, vibrated, pumped, hand delivered, or gravity-fed to gates or valves above the vessel. Process weighing ensures the accuracy of the mix and makes the results highly repeatable to ensure quality control.

Batching by Weight

Precise measurement is critical for batching and blending ingredients. Just a fraction of a percentage off and your batch could be ruined, wasting precious money and resources. Introducing batch weighing into the process involves sequentially or simultaneously adding ingredients into a vessel by weight and then discharging the batch (sum of all the ingredients) to downstream processors.

Blending by Rate

Batch blending by rate control is a "loss-of-weight" application where multiple ingredients are added to a single vessel at the same time and the rate at which they are added is measured and controlled.

Continuous Belt and Feeder Weighing

Modern manufacturing plants often depend on continuous conveyance systems and feeders to transform raw materials into finished goods. In motion, raw materials need to be weighed to ensure the ingredient mix is correct and that the finished goods meet quality standards.

Loss-In-Weight by Rate Control

Rate by weight is the measurement of an amount of material that enters into or is dispensed from a vessel over a given period of time. Solids, liquids, or gases can be monitored or precisely controlled using screw- or auger-based feeders, vibratory feeders, conveyors, belt feeders, variable valves, and pumps. Loss-In-Weight Closed Loop Rate Control can support a variety of applications.
