Scale Hopper

May 21, 2009
This scale hopper uses three load cells to integrate batch weighing into a pneumatic conveying system. Featuring installed accuracy producing a margin of error no greater than ±0.5% of full scale capacity, the unit is specially designed for pneumatic systems to accurately weigh loads, even when unevenly distributed. The hopper inlet is equipped with a tangential entry baffle that mates to an Aeropass valve, providing better material-air separation. This reduces carry-over and provides for more consistent filling of the hopper. The hopper features three evenly-spaced support lugs around the circumference, used to suspend the hopper from load cells mounted to a prefabricated load ring. The load ring can be bolted or welded into place for easy installation.
