An automatic throughput bulk weighing system utilizing a PLC and a Hardy weight controller is designed to control incoming or outgoing material in your shipping and receiving operations. The system measures and stores draft requirements, totals, tolerances, and individual weight compensation offsets for multiple separate materials. The system analyses weight data generated by load cells to accurately measure and totalize the flow of the bulk material.
Scale fees (truck or track) are only one of many things that can add to your shipping costs. Throughput systems eliminate the risk of having to pay overage fines or take a reduction in profits by under-filling.
Individual ingredient weight can be tracked with Hardy's totalizer feature, which keeps track of total amounts of net weight that has been filled or dispensed. Bar graphs give a visualization of the amount being filled, dispensed, or totalized. In addition to filling and dispensing, Hardy controllers can also be used to control or monitor the rate of flow of material and batch ingredients. The Totalizer feature can also track how much raw material by weight remains in the tank or silo.
