Detailed Product Description
Auto-Weighing and Batching System, as the name suggests, is used for precise weighing of multiple products to prepare a batch which is then further mixed and then packed.
The system can be used for Powders, Cakes and Liquids. The system is a completely pre-engineered system with instruments provided for automation. Fully automatic and semi-automatic versions of this system are available.
Construction and Operation
The system consists of Multiple Storage Hoppers, with or without Agitators, depending upon the nature of product. These Storage Hoppers are fitted with coarse and fine screws at the bottom.
The screw feeders discharge the material into the Weighing Hopper, which is placed on load cells.
Pre- determined quantity of material from each Storage Hopper is fed to the Weighing Hopper.
The batch controller controls the starting and stopping of the coarse and fine screws as per the program and quantity given in it.
Once the required quantity of material is fed to the Weighing Hopper, the bottom valve is opened to discharge the material to mixer.
The mixer can be any type like, Ribbon Blender, Cone Screw Mixer, Agitated Vessel etc. Once the Weighing Hopper is empty, the next batching cycle starts. The system can be programmed for any number of batching cycles.
