A new weigh batching system has been launched by bulk solids handling specialist Flexicon (Europe) which is suitable for mezzanines and other low headroom areas.
The system uses low profile flexible screw conveyors configured with motor drives at the inlet end of the conveyor, significantly reducing height and width requirements at the discharge end.
This automated system comprises eight conveyors fed by roof-mounted storage vessels, with each group of four conveyors feeding either one of two gain-in-weight hoppers that gravity discharge to a ribbon blender at ground level.
A system controller starts and stops each conveyor to weigh ingredients in sequence, first at high feed rate for rapid filling, then at dribble feed rate.
