Flexible Screw Weigh Batching System

January 27, 2010
Flexicon Corp.This weigh batching system for mezzanines and other low headroom areas utilizes low-profile flexible screw conveyors configured with motor drives at the inlet end of the conveyor, reducing height and width requirements at the discharge end. The automated system is comprised of eight low-profile conveyors fed by roof-mounted storage vessels, with each group of four conveyors feeding either of two gain-in-weight hoppers that gravity discharge through the mezzanine floor to a ribbon blender on plant floor. A system controller starts and stops each conveyor to weigh ingredients in sequence, then opens the slide gate valve to discharge the batch.
