Conveying, weighing combo unit accurately batches bulk solids

January 23, 2006
Convey-N-Weigh combines vacuum conveying and accurate batching of bulk solids. Powder can be sourced without any metering at source, conveyed, received, precisely weighed and discharged to a process with a single CNW module. Powder can be sourced from a wand or any other powder delivery mechanism. Operator influence on powder sourcing will not affect CNW operation or accuracy. Powder control is achieved through unit fill control, powder densification and precision loss-in-weight discharging. Convey-N-Weigh does not make use of pre-acts, which results in single direction tolerance control. Each CNW module consists of a vacuum filter receiver with continuous pulse jet filter clean system, live bin discharger, volumetric screw feeder and three-point scale system. Modules are designed for tool free quick take apart. Entire module can be quickly disassembled for cleaning. All stainless steel construction along with NEMA 4 electrical enclosures allow for safe washdown. Control is managed through a touch screen HMI providing operators with a wide range of operation for each module. Scale control is intuitive and can be process specific displayed. Modules are suitable for USDA Dairy acceptance.
