Continuous Belt & Feeder Weighing

Continuous Belt & 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.

Hardy weight controllers interface with belt scales and feeders for in-motion weighing. Items can be weighed while crossing an analog load cell-based conveyor. The instrument provides rate control and can adjust based on changing conditions and preacts that operate in a predictive fashion. A weight target can be set and weights compared against target values to trigger an alarm or identify in the transaction record out of tolerance items.

Instrumentation ranges from weight to rate controllers. They can be stand-alone systems or connected to host computers (PC), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC), or Distributed Control Systems (DCS). They can be run in automatic, semi-automatic, manual, or a combination of all three modes, operating gates, valves, feeders, and pumps as well as downstream mixers and metered liquids.

Hardy rate controllers can operate automatically, semi-automatically, and manually opening gates, valves, feeders, and pumps
