Heavy-Duty Weighfeeder Designed for Rugged Conditions

March 29, 2011
For weighing and feeding up to 500 tons per hour with minimal maintenance and care, the DMO Weighfeeder is the perfect solution for a variety of heavy-duty industrial applications. A uniquely designed drive system with reducer and motor are all directly mounted on the head pulley shaft. At the heart of the DMO is a direct multi-cell weighing system that does not use levers or counterbalance weights. This eliminates chance of error during the weighing process. The DMO comes in standard belt widths of 24- to 54-inches with feed rate accuracies of ± ½ percent over a 10:1 range. These rates are achievable in a range of material particle sizes up to 4-inch lumps.
