Process Control’s AccuDispense gravimetric system

New from Process Control Corp. (Atlanta, GA) is AccuDispense, a single-dose, gravimetric dispensing system for automated material weighing and loading. It delivers a pre-selected weight of free flowing material (powder, flake, granulate or pellets) directly to the process. AccuDispense is used when it is necessary to obtain pre-weighed doses of material that do not need to be blended, but require an accurate dispense. The AccuDispense design is based on the company’s Guardian Batch Blenders, with which it shares the same mechanics, controls and software.

The supply hopper and feed gate are mounted above the weigh hopper.  When the dispense sequence is initiated by a manual start button or automated signal, a programmable controller activates the pneumatic gate feeder to begin loading material into the weigh hopper at a maximum feed rate. The single point load cell transmits weight gain information to the controller, which steps- down the feed rate prior to reaching the target weight, for greater accuracy.  The gate feeds the weigh hopper with material until the desired material amount is achieved.  Once the desired weight is dispensed, the slide gate opens and dumps the measured ingredient into a container, mixer or to a downstream process.  [email protected]
