Loss-in-Weight Feeders for Fluidizable Materials

Thayer Scale introduces a line of loss-in-weight feeders that are specifically designed to handle materials that are extremely free flowing and fluidizable. The line was developed as a direct response for customers who were experiencing poor accuracy with conventional loss-in-weight screw feeders handling fine materials. This design incorporates a rotary feeder that provides high accuracy and is completely dust-tight from product inlet to outlet. Ideally suited for applications feeding into pneumatic conveying system, it can be configured for either continuous loss-in-weight feeding or batch.

Weighing is done through Thayer's patented low deflection, non-wearing FMSS (Force Measurement Suspension System) flexure scale that measures vertical loading and can take high load directed overloads (1000%). The FMSS scale design uses counterweights to negate the tare weight of the support structure, feeder, and bin. Thus, 100% of the scale capacity is used to weigh material, resulting in the best possible weight signal resolution.
