Weighing and dosing bulk products into a process

Volkmann GmbH, July 24, 2020
It is often necessary to weigh and dose powder, amongst other bulk materials, into a process. Let’s take the addition of sugar into a mixer as an example from the food industry.

According to the recipe, a total of 150 kg of sugar must be added to the mixer. The conveyor system used requires ten conveying cycles of 15 kg each. Depending on the design of the system, delivery rates of up to 4 t / h are also possible. The accuracy of the system is 99 – 99.7% of the target weight to be achieved.

The removal from different pick-up locations is possible as well as the adjustment and storage of recipes. A quick intervention in the process is possible via the device control’s intuitive touch display. In addition, the entire process can of course also be controlled fully automatically.

The Volkmann CONWEIGH is a combined conveying and dosing system and is usually used for adding quantities from 2 kg upwards per unit.
