The Volkmann Conweigh weighing system accurately weighs powders, granules, food particles, pellets, capsules, tablets, and other bulk materials being transferred into and out of production processes via Volkmann VS and PPC series of vacuum conveyors. Conweigh registers weight within +/-1% or better, allowing adjustments to be made to avoid weight gains or losses during transfer and improve production outcomes. Depending on the production application, Conweigh can work with one, three, or four load cells. In the most common case, weighing takes place at the vacuum receiver immediately prior to discharge into the process (gain-in-weight). Alternative systems can be employed under bulk bag unloaders, hoppers or bag dump rip and tip stations at the feed point (loss-in-weight).
