Automated Flexible Conveyor introduces a mobile version of its Batch-Weigh automated powder dispensing system.

Offered as an option, the mobile Batch-Weigh system was developed to enable powder processors to safely and easily roll the screw conveying system from one tank, vessel, mixer, hopper, or other location to another, or from one processing line to another, without investing in multiple powder conveying systems. The conveyor may be used to automatically transfer, weigh, and dispense precise amounts of powders, pellets, flakes, and other bulk materials, then quickly cleaned and rolled to the next location.

Suitable for movement and operation in any sanitary, hazardous, and non-hazardous production environment, the mobile Batch-Weigh system sets the company's fully automated weighing and batching system on a rugged, steel frame atop durable, non-marking casters. The self-contained powder conveyor integrates the company's flexible screw conveyor with companion infeed hopper, weigh hopper, load cells, pneumatic slide gate, proprietary drive, and PLC-based controls to achieve 99% or better batch weighing accuracy. Batch-to-batch consistency and throughput are improved while the potential for operator error is virtually eliminated.
