Powder and Bulk Engineering - December 2020 | VOL. 34 NO. 12

On the cover: Model 402-905-18 Weight-Loss weighfeeder is shown at the supplier’s customer demostration facilities in Moonachie, NJ, as part of an integrated system that includes a bulk bag unloader, refill hopper, and weighfeeder metering 0.5-inch fiberglass material at 300 pounds per hour into a conveor, typically discharging to a downstream continuous mixer. Weighfeeder incorporates a technologically advanced, durable, and dependable weighing system that’s permanently calibrated and adjustment-free.

Powder and Bulk Engineering - September 2019 | VOL. 33 NO. 9

On the cover: Model 403B(D) sequential batch-dump weighing system is shown during a customer demo at the supplier’s material testing facilities. System volumetrically feeds individual ingredients to preset batch weights into a scale-mounted weigh hopper. System incorporates a high resolution non-load-cell weighing mechanism that is permanently calibrated and adjustment-free, unaffected by in-plant vibrations, and the system includes the supplier’s proprietary Batch-Lok algorithm for disturbance-free operation.

Powder and Bulk Engineering - December 2018 | VOL. 32 NO. 12

On the cover: Model 105Z dissimilar-speed, double-concentric auger feeder system is shown during customer testing for producing a slurry for an industrial water treatment clarification process. System includes a bulk bag unloader that uses vibratory action to discharge the material from a bulk bag, which empties into the feeder in about 3 to 4 hours. Feeder then meters the flocculent into the supplier’s high-capacity wetting cone, producing a slurry for application directly into the process.

Powder and Bulk Engineering - September 2017 | VOL. 31 NO. 9

On the cover: Dry solids weighfeeders with a liquid feeder is shown during a customer demostration for a bakery and confectionary manufacturer. System provides precise ingredient metering of unbleached flour, salt, wheat gluten, and a liquid flavoring for making breakfast bars. System includes a durable weighing system that’s permanently calibrated and adjustment-free. System’s high-resolution weight sensing is performed using the supplier’s proprietary ratiometric digital weight resolver, which produces an unamplified, nonintegrated real-time weight signal for precise feedrate control.

Powder and Bulk Engineering - December 2016 | VOL. 30 NO. 12

On the cover: Model 403-105Z weight-loss weighfeeder is shown operating in the supplier’s Moonachie, NJ, product testing and demostration facility. Unit is shown during a performance evaluation metering a plastic regrind material into a collection vessel at full production rates. Unit’s dissimilar-speed, double-concentric auger metering mechanism fills the feed auger from 360 degrees for accurate and reliable material delivery. Unit is fed via a storage hopper equipped with a bin activator and a gate valve. Courtesy of Acrison, Moonachie, NJ, 800-422-7476 (www.acrison.com).

Powder and Bulk Engineering - September 2015 | VOL. 29 NO. 9

On the cover: Model 402-170-2-2 loss-in-weight weighfeeder is shown installed in supplier’s Moonachie, NJ, demostration facility. Weighfeeder is shown metering a chopped flake material into a collection hopper during a customer-witnessed test for a weighbatching application. Weighfeeder uses two independently driven metering augers to provide high and low feed outputs. Weighfeeder’s dual-auger metering mechanism can yield a wide throughput range, with a turndown ratio of more than 100 to 1. Courtesy of Acrison, Moonachie, NJ, 800-422-7476 (www.acrison.com).

Powder and Bulk Engineering - December 2013 | VOL. 27 NO. 12

On the cover: Model BDF-1.5 volumetric feeders are installed at the Fort Thomas Water Treatment Facility, Fort Thomas, KY. Feeders receive powder activated carbon from vibrating bin dischargers mounted below bulk storage hoppers and accurately meter it into high-capacity wetting cones for instantaneous material blending. Feeders use a metering mechanism with multiple auger-agitators that operate at proportional but dissimilar speeds to ensure positive flow and precise, reliable feeding.

Powder and Bulk Engineering - December 2011 | VOL. 25 NO. 12

On the cover: Weight-Loss weighfeeders are shown metering various dry solid ingredients into the company’s Model 301 continuous blender for a gravimetric feeding and blending pilot production test conducted for an international specialty plastics compounder. Model 405-105X weighfeeder is feeding colored pellets, Model 407-101 weighfeeder is feeding fiberglass, Model 405-BDF1 weighfeeder is feeding regrind, and Model 405-170-0 weighfeeder is feeding an additive. Weighfeeders ensure accurate metering and blending of the ingredients, and the blender provides through mixing, producing a consistent final blend.

Powder and Bulk Engineering - September 2010 | VOL. 24 NO. 9

On the cover: Model 410-170-MI-5 Weight-Loss microingredient weighfeeder is shown metering a difficult-to-handle food additive by loss in weight at a low 0.005-ft3/h feedrate. Weighfeeder is metering the material into a collection vessal, which is placed on a checkweigh scale that’s linked to an automated sampling program recording samples at 10-second intervals. Quick-disconnect weighfeeder can be disassembled and reassembled in minutes without using tools. Weighfeeder allows total cleanout, making it suitable for sanitary, pharmaceutical, and other applications with frequent material changeovers.
