  • Advanced Uses for Weigh Belt Feeder Data

    A weigh belt feeder is a device that can control the rate at which a bulk material is metered into a downstream process by weight rather than by volume.      A weigh belt feeder normally is equipped with a weight-sensing device such as a load cell, as well as a belt travel device...

  • Accurate and Fast Bulk Density Test Method

    Perhaps the number one test currently in use for bulk solids characterization is a tapped bulk density test. This simplistic test has been used for decades. Inexpensive and quick, it supplies a value that is calculated as the difference in volume from a container or graduated cylinder that is...
