Accurate fill control through fast signal processing, high resolution and intelligent control algorithms.
FLOW8000 is a controller for loss-in-weight feeders which discharge material from a supply hopper at a constant rate into a continuous process, eg in the food, chemical or cement industry.
The material is continuously discharged from (or added to) the supply hopper with screw- , rotatory – or vibratory feeders. FLOW8000 measures the actual flow rate, compares it with the desired nominal value and corrects any deviation by adjusting the speed of the drive motor. When the material in the supply hopper reaches a predetermined low level, the feeder locks in and continues discharging of material at constant rate, while the hopper is refilled to pre-set target. After refilling the hopper, the loss (gain)-in-weight cycle resumes.
