Loss-in-weight gravimetric feeder

The ProRate gravimetric feeder handles plastic pellets and regrind, and is designed to continuously meter raw materials accurately into a central station hopper. It has one to eight feeders and a central microprocessor-based control. Each of the feeders operates in an independent, continuous loss-in-weight scaling mode to ensure accuracy of each ingredient. The control continuously monitors the weight signals of each feeder and adjusts the auger speed to match the recipe feedrate.

The proprietary control handles one to eight feeders simultaneously, providing a capacity range from 1 to 80,000 lb/hr. Recipe selection, storage, and editing are easy?the operator can enter recipe material rates or blend percentages without calculations. Inventory and usage data can be displayed or sent to a printer.
